A basic question for kakkars

Recommended Posts

Guest cyclistsingh

Hi,

I am an avid road cyclist. For cycling seriously you have to wear padded shorts or bib shorts, they look something like this: https://podia.cc/shop/club-bib-shorts-regular/

These are not ordinary shorts. They are padded and they allow you to sit for long hours on the saddle, without them cycling for long distances is impossible. Forget even short distances.

Therefore, wearing kacherra is not possible. Can the bib shorts be considered a substitute kacchera if wore one leg in and out. Also wearing kirpan, kungha is not possible while cycling. Well kungha might be possible. However, you do need to wear a helmet to take part in cycling events.

I'd like to know if it is possible to even continue with cycling while being amritdhari. When I say cycling I am not talking about the casual neighbourhood rider. I am talking about serious cycling with professional gear.

Best,

Hey,

I do long-distance running and wear compression legging under kachera for it. I know what you mean Re comfort!

Professional cycling is a specialist thing. For training or 'race day' get dressed in your cycle gear however you need to. The Guru knows you are not breaking your faith in him or his maryada. Because after race you put your 5ks back on.

Anyone who wants to discourage you - get lost. 

A Sikh professional cyclist - that will be very cool, do us proud bro!

Wear your kachera over the club shorts. 

 

Why can't you wear a kirpan? If you really can't. You can always wear a Dori wali kirpan if you are really stuck

 

Kangha even if you couldn't put in your head, could easily go in a pocket?

You can wear the necklace that has a kirpan and kanga. For the kacherra you can try to make a small one that clings to your body more. If not just do a rdas before and after riding your bike that youre taking off your kakar and please forgive me

    • Two wrongs together dont make a right. You will probably mislead her and make her rebel against her parents.
    • Just do EXACTLY as your parents say. When you grow up you will understand why they were right. if you dont listen to them now, you will likely spend your entire life regretting what u did.
    • Look at it this way - if we theoretically say yes one can take birth again as a Sikh, how will that affect their Simran now? Also if one takes birth again how will they remember that they are supposed to do Simran? What will stop them from asking this question again? http://sttm.co/s/48/524 ਭਈ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਦੇਹੁਰੀਆ ॥ bhiee paraapat maanukh dhehureeaa || This human body has been given to you. ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਲਣ ਕੀ ਇਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਬਰੀਆ ॥ gobi(n)dh milan kee ieh teree bareeaa || This is your chance to meet the Lord of the Universe. ਅਵਰਿ ਕਾਜ ਤੇਰੈ ਕਿਤੈ ਨ ਕਾਮ ॥ avar kaaj terai kitai na kaam || Nothing else will work. ਮਿਲੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਭਜੁ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ॥੧॥ mil saadhasa(n)gat bhaj keval naam ||1|| Join the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy; vibrate and meditate on the Jewel of the Naam. ||1|| ਸਰੰਜਾਮਿ ਲਾਗੁ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਰਨ ਕੈ ॥ sara(n)jaam laag bhavajal taran kai || Make every effort to cross over this terrifying world-ocean. ਜਨਮੁ ਬ੍ਰਿਥਾ ਜਾਤ ਰੰਗਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਕੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ janam birathaa jaat ra(n)g maiaa kai ||1|| rahaau || You are squandering this life uselessly in the love of Maya. ||1||Pause|| ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ jap tap sa(n)jam dharam na kamaiaa || I have not practiced meditation, self-discipline, self-restraint or righteous living. ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥ sevaa saadh na jaaniaa har raiaa || I have not served the Holy; I have not acknowledged the Lord, my King. ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ kahu naanak ham neech kara(n)maa || Says Nanak, my actions are contemptible! ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ ॥੨॥੪॥ saran pare kee raakhahu saramaa ||2||4|| O Lord, I seek Your Sanctuary; please, preserve my honor! ||2||4||
    • Bro, I don't know if I naam jap or not. .. honestly. How do I know if the name that I said with my tongue is being accepted in the dargah when my mind is wavering and is not steady. So I am scared.  Another thing I was thinking.  The population of the Humans in the world is 7.8 Billion.  Where as the population of all animals - mammals, reptiles, insects, bacteria, virus and all ocean life and other creatures far exceeds than the 7.8 billion number On top of that add all the other rooms in pret, hellish forms.  Getting a Human Life seems winning a lottery and on top of that human birth in a good family, plus human birth in a Sikh family seems near impossible? I want to know what happens to a person who is born a Sikh and dies and did not do Naam Jap? are they given Sikh birth again or have they lost?
