Why do Sikhs keep a traditional look by keeping Hair and Beard?

And soon as he interjected with this attempt at stirring the pot to make you seem like an 1diot in-front of a foreign third party, you should've said, " To separate me from the likes of this guy" while pointing at Chandu. The Chinese guy would've gone away with something to chew on, and your Indian mate would've thought twice before chatting 5hit.

You metropolitan Sikhs need to grow a pair. In a way you aren't entirely to blame (Stockholm Syndrome), but it's messed up how easily your Hindu acquaintances clown you to your face, and you do nothing about it.

 

Thanks MisterrSingh,

The Chinese colleague always use to repeatedly ask me "Why you wear turban?" ... "Why you keep traditional look?" --- I use to brush away these questions and not care because the chinese colleague is atheist and has no faith. Therefore, to a person who has no faith, no belief in God.... it is useless to explain these things, because that person can never understand. However, I was quite SHOCKED when my hindu colleague re-affirmed and said "Good questions". I did not expect this, because generally you'd expect a Hindu to have a better understanding of the Sikh faith. The Hindu was from south India. 

This incident remained in my subconscious mind, until I came across a katha by Dhan Dhan Sant Ishar Singh Ji Maharaaj (Nanaskar). The name of the Katha is Brahm Binde... and it can be found on youtube.com. I urge everyone to listen to this katha as it is an eye-opener. The katha is here: 

 

In this Katha. Maharaaj explains:

God is in Nirgun form, has no shape, no body, no form. Maharaaj explains that just as a person who sleeps in the night and then wakes at morning and then that person checks his/her face in the mirror. Then he/she gets the feeling of how his/her face looks like. How the hair is, how the beard is and how the face is.

In the SAME WAY .... When Nirgun Saroop of Akal Purakh --- got a thought "How do I look like?"  and then at that time Nirgun saroop of akal purakh took the form of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Therefore, Guru Nanak Saroop (sargon) is the Nirgun Akal purak saroop. This is same saroop is given to us by Guru Gobind Singh ji, hence beard, turban, hair is ACTUAL AKAL PURAK SARGUN SAROOP and it never becomes traditional 

Thanks All.

You gonna explain all that to a Cheena? I already know it. Why didn't you give Chandu a Gurbani lesson, too? There's no point in getting excited on this forum. Why don't you do it in the real world?

No, I will not explain. That question had left an imprint in my heart. After listenning to Baba Jis katha... questions were answered.

A person who is athiest will not understand these things and chandu tooo will not.

So what do you then say to the atheist?

You ask “Do you have a faith? Belief in God?”, if answer is no then say its beyond your understanding.

There is not just one reason why we keep our Kesh but many imo. I would give different answers depending on the person who I am talking to. For an atheist, I would give a more scientific answer as compared to a Sikh, because they may not understand Gurbani to the fullest extent. It's important to be able to explain your beliefs and ways of thinking to others that way you don't get swayed by their arguments and reasoning. Along with this, they can respect your choices and understand your point of view.
