Can Non-Amritdharis Wear A Banaa?

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?

I meant, 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.

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

No one is arguing. If you want to tell them not to wear Bana, go right ahead.

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

    • Simran345, here is a pangti on SGGS 558, it seems to be talking about darshan which happened in a dream. Now sleep is being called as blessed so that the darshan of God can happen again. ਸੁਪਨੈ ਆਇਆ ਭੀ ਗਇਆ ਮੈ ਜਲੁ ਭਰਿਆ ਰੋਇ ॥ 
      सुपनै आइआ भी गइआ मै जलु भरिआ रोइ ॥ 
      Supnai ā▫i▫ā bẖī ga▫i▫ā mai jal bẖari▫ā ro▫e. 
      In a dream, He came, and went away again; I cried so many tears. 
        ਆਇ ਨ ਸਕਾ ਤੁਝ ਕਨਿ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਭੇਜਿ ਨ ਸਕਾ ਕੋਇ ॥ 
      आइ न सका तुझ कनि पिआरे भेजि न सका कोइ ॥ 
      Ā▫e na sakā ṯujẖ kan pi▫āre bẖej na sakā ko▫e. 
      I can't come to You, O my Beloved, and I can't send anyone to You. 
        ਆਉ ਸਭਾਗੀ ਨੀਦੜੀਏ ਮਤੁ ਸਹੁ ਦੇਖਾ ਸੋਇ ॥ 
      आउ सभागी नीदड़ीए मतु सहु देखा सोइ ॥ 
      Ā▫o sabẖāgī nīḏ▫ṛī▫e maṯ saho ḏekẖā so▫e. 
      Come to me, O blessed sleep - perhaps I will see my Husband Lord again.    Or do you suppose its meaning is actually different to what is translated ?
    • Do you have sources for this?
    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
