Can Non-Amritdharis Wear A Banaa?

Because, I spoke to someone, and he said

that Banaa has been worn even before Vaisakhi 1699.

So, can we still wear a Banaa, if we are not

Amritdhari?

What exactly is a baana ? ( the word baana is used too frequently here )

Is it kurta pyjama ?

or kacchera alone ?

or does one wear a chola ?

You see, do you mean non-Amritdhaari as in someone who hasn't got Kes or a Dhaari, or someone who is in Sikhi saroop but hasn't taken Amrit?

RSingh96 veeray, today people do tons of things. Doesn't mean everything is right. If someone is wearing Bana before taking Amrit, it means that they are really close to taking Amrit. I started wearing all 5 kakaars 10 weeks before taking Amrit. It helps a lot. No one told me its wrong because they knew I was serious. But if people wear the Bana or kakaars only to show off then thats plain wrong. I have heard about people who wear kirpan without taking Amrit. They wear it for a while, then take it off, then put it again when they feel like and then again remove it, as if it was an ID card you wear to work and then remove it when you are home. Bana and kakaars are something serious, and should be worn only if you have the intention of getting used to them, and that happens if you are about to take Amrit in the VERY near future. No other reason can be good enough.

no point in arguing, so to conclude this, would i be right in saying this.

Bana is not supposed to be worn by non-Amritdharis. Fullstop.

What exactly is a baana ? ( the word baana is used too frequently here )

or kacchera alone ?

or does one wear a chola ?

notice, how it isnt a kurta pyjama...

and its not a kachera alone either...

Bana. 'Chola' with Kachera.

The sole reason, I posted this was, that basically, where I live

I seen loads of Non-Amritdharis (Sikhi Saroop, not Amrithdhari)

in Banaa.

And, if you live in my area, you might remember a group of

moneh in Banaa. with Orange Patke LOL

This, right here.

Veer ji

the link doesn't work but I'm posting an article about Bana...it is clear that it is more than a fashion, it is a mindset where you give all of yourself to Guru Granth and Guru Panth no reservations ...so logically if you hold back your head you are not in the mindset required

    • Excellent link with pics of one of India's most underappreciated but most amazing architectural marvels. https://www.boredpanda.com/ancient-architecture-unesco-heritage-stepwell-victoria-lautman-india/
    • Explain to your mom/family what sikhi is about. Show her videos from the "Basics Of Sikhi" YouTube channel.  After she has a little understanding of sikhi, you can tell that you would like to follow the faith and live as a practicing Sikh. Tell her about rehit and show her about your maryada that you wish to follow. After that, she will get a wider understanding of your new routines and can become use to it and support you.
    • Wjkk wjkf I too live in Birmingham. If you get the chance to take amrit there are two sanchars coming up one this Saturday at 10 am in Guru har rai west brom and one on 4th November 4.30pm in Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick You do not need parental permission but it is your choice.
    • Oh dear, quite a lot going on there. Relax and tell your mother to relax also. Respect her whatever you do, as she’s finding this difficult to deal with.  No harm in seeing a Gp, explain to your Gp, at least that will rule out what she thinks is wrong. The thing is nobody on here knows what the exact situation is in your household, so if we say do this, do that, it may make things worse. You need to talk to somebody like Basics of Sikhi or Sikh helpline.  It’s ok to recite Gurbani in front of her if that’s what she wants. Don’t your family go to the Gurdwara at all? If your not confident in reciting in front of her, then play some audio of a shabad or Gurbani and sing/recite along with it. Then the alien won’t appear.     
    •  VJKK VJKF Hanji, Penji I'm always japping Waheguru no matter what I'm doing for well over half the day and I'm not going to stop anyway. Nothing stops for me it just makes it a lot harder and I hope Maharaj can do kirpa on daas - I have no power at all.
