  1. I keep trying to tie one, but I can't. Can someone give me a step by step tutorial or something cuz most of the tutorials on youtube are not good enough. I've got a small head, so what length of material do i need etc. I want something that i can tie everyday and will be suitable for wearing in school. Oh and apparently you gotta tie dumallas to be a "true sikh". 😑😐😯
  2. Vaheguru... Sangat Ji, how do you dispose of your old Dastaars? I tend to use some old Dastaars as keski's to wear when at home, doing sports (which I rarely do), going to sleep or on that occasional lazy cant be bother day however, I have built up a massive collection of old Dastaars now (all in suitcases) which need to be disposed of. I wouldn't bin them as I feel this would be disrespect. How do you dispose of them? Burn them the same as with fallen Kes? Any suggestions of the best method with full respect would be much appreciated? Akaaaaaaaal!
  3. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh I am a Sikh girl who has recently started wearing a Dastaar. I chose to do this as I wish to live in the bana that the Guru set for us. I am also Amritdhari. One question came to my mind... Is wearing a Dupatta/Chunni required if I am wearing a Dastaar. From my belief, Dupattas/Chunnis are meant to cover hair as a sign of respect for the Guru. Wearing a Dastaar permanently takes care of that. However, I see several women that have Keskis, yet they use a Dupatta/Chunni to wrap it around their breasts/bust. Is that the whole point of a Dupatta? To simply cover one's breasts? Women without keski/dastaar are often just covering their chest with a Dupatta/Chunni yet have their heads uncovered. Defeats the whole purpose... So simply put, is it preferred for women in Gurdwaras to cover their breasts over their hair? And if I am wearing a Keski, then is it preferred if I also wear a Dupatta/Chunni to cover my breasts? I would be grateful if someone could shine some light on this issue for me. Thank you. Kind Regards
  4. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ke Fateh! Sangat Ji, the reason I have started this topic is to allow sangat Ji to give their views/opinions/reviews on dastaar (i.e. size, material, style/type, tips & techniques). Even though I know there are many post regarding the dumalla or dastaar, I thought it would be great if we are able to have all questions/queries and answers under one post (help me especially). Few questions for example: What material is best for dumalla/dasaar and Why? Length of your/common dumalla/dastar? Experience you have gained from learning to tie your dumalla/dastaar? Tips and techniques? Recommended shop to purchase material (include shop contact details)? Your first time experience from wearing a dumalla/dastaar? And many more....... I hope with Guru's Kirpa this benefits sangat new and old with dumalla/dastaar based question?

Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh!
  6. WJKK WJKF, Sangat, I have a issue that I am concerned about. I want to start wearing a dumalla to gurdwara as I am beginning to wear a dumalla since I am taking amrit in the upcoming months. I was wondering if sangat at my gurdwara will make remarks at me and should I just avoid their remarks as I am taking my Sikhi seriously and following every hukam before taking amrit. None of teenagers my age come to gurdwara or they still wear a patka and more than half the Sikhs don't follow the true teachings of Sikhi. I am willing to wear a dumalla. So should I just start wearing a dumalla without caring what sangat at my gurdwara says?
  7. WJKK WJKF Daas needs a Dumalla/Dastar teacher in Toronto, Canada. post here with your email address and We can arrange, I am willing to pay the teacher. Thank You. Bhul Chuk Maaf, Guru Ang Sang
  8. Should dumalla be tied from left to right or from right to left i know this may seem stupid but when i try doing right to left laars are so loose so hopefully find out if its wrong to do left to right
  9. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Cyber sangat ji, basically ive been keeping my kes for about 7months now. My head hair is about 3/4inches long...its taking ages growing lol. My dhara is a few inches long too. Loving every bit of it! Cant wait for it to get longer. I started saja'ing a dastar about 2ish months back, pretty simple gol dastar which is working pretty fine except i'd really like to sajaa a Dumalla. It looks crazy!! Totally beautiful!! Ive been trying with the help of our veers on youtube but they all have 'proper' kes so it doesnt really work for me. My question, is it possible to sajaa a Dumalla with such short kes as in my case? And to my veers who once cut their kes and are now keeping them; what style dastar did you sajaa? What works best? Any tips would be much much appreciated thank you. Secondly, this may seem a daft question but once youve made the decision to keep your kes, how soon after can you take amrit? Like i dont feel 'proper' at the moment because my kes are so short...i would still consider myself a monna although ive not cut my kes in over 7months. I dont intend on taking amrit for atleast a year yet. As soon as i can start keeping rehat properly, I can consider taking amrit. I don't want to take amrit and then find i cant keep rehat or i make a mistake which ill regret right, for example, i love my sleep so if i miss amritvela...etc. Is this the correct thinking? Or should i take amrit and then see where it takes me? Cyber sangat ji, thank you in advance! And i apologise for any phul of mine, incase ive offended anyone.
