Colours In Sikhi

Recommended Posts

Please could someone clarify if we are allowed to wear red/green in sikhi? could you also provide examples to support your answer? I have been told that red represents lust and green is symbolic for islam

Thanks

sooha rang aint red rang! its bikh rang of maya.. which has been alocated the color of red. but, red colour is also the colour of the saints! goora rang is this saintly colour. and its alocated red rang. look at the faces of sants. its red with naam simean.. this is (EVENTUALLY) called ujal.. "te mukh ujale.."

on the other hand, u have red with angers. red with maya. with lust etc.. this is sooha rang. this is what guru G is talking about.. Re: sooha rang..

lwl Bey sUhw rMgu mwieAw..

(in jupping naam and getting the natad of god)... u become red with it, insteda the sooha rang of maya..

lastly, dont go into nitty gritty. maharaj wore green too..

fact is, that red, and green stimulates the mind in a certian way.. (it excites the neurons.. this is y u DO show a baby lotsa colours and different sounds etc.. it helps soo much with brain development)..

just like foods and sweets do.. if ur mind is fine with sweets, and colours, and u dont need to eat simple foods cuz of avastha aint to that level etc, then u dont need to worry about colours!.. also, they do serve jelebiiiz in heaven.. but that is a different rus.. amrit is sweet for a reason aswell.. :)

You've completely misunderstood. Let's just stick to Gurmat colours rather than cause controversy. wlEmoticon-annoyed.png

If your mind is so easily swayed by colors, then you have a weak mind. The blood pumping through our bodies is red, so I guess that means we are all going to hell. Not that we believe in hell anyways, but that's a different topic.

No offense intended. Stating my opinion. Bhul chuk maaf.

There are bigger issues in the panth and bigger chor's in the mind (kam, krodh, lob, moh, ahankar) that we need to get rid of instead of discussing on colors..seriously people need to move on...if not wearing red or green helps good for you, time to move on..whatever your perception (dristhi koun) is thats what you clearly become and discussing or debating the basics, one can easily get stuck in (by wrapping your head around it) to the point where one forgets the bigger picture "eho tari vari aa gobind millan di ".. ..its not as black and white ... if red was manmat nirmale wouldn't wear phagva and red color, its all about perception how you perceive things..!!

At the end of day, we are not sullehs/sunnis where most of them are stuck in shariat..!!

Let control of the mind be your spiritual wisdom, O holy man; meeting with God, you shall never die again. ||3||

Just for the record- I wear blue/white/skyblue/teal/brown at times and only on canada day - wear red..!!

I think the reason mainly for the colors is because in olden times Green was a sign of Mughal armies and Red (blood orange) was always a sign of the hindu armies (hill rajas ect).

    • Thank you for the reply. As long as you’re happy, that’s what counts. 
    • Well, we live in a society where marriage is not valued, only for looking on the wedding day. We live in a society where we no longer fix things, we just throw away things once they lose their usefulness.  The human gene pool shows that at least 80 percent of men historically never had children, where at least 80 percent of women did.  What this means before the advent of marriage, one man would have many women to have children with. This is what happens in the animal kingdom, where the alpha male will have his share of the females.  The reality is (I might sound sexist, but it is largely true). Women have sexually selected men for resources and genetic material ). What has happened is that women no longer value marriage with men because they do not require resources so for a lot of them all that is left is the Alpha stud. The vast majority of men are not alpha studs, it is a very tiny percentage. Women will always go for a man that is the highest value, even if she herself are not of the same value. Society seems to be regressing back to the pre-marital age  (like back to hunter gather type society). It is very dangerous because potentially there maybe a lot of unmarried men in society. From a Sikhi point of view, we are supposed to live a ghristi Jeevan life and the regression of society means it is going to be increasing difficult.

    • Well, I'm not jatt and I'll say this much.  After the Vienna murder in 2009, the Ravidassia community protested in London with placards demanding the removal of kirpans from Sikhs. A year or so later, a branch of the Ravidassia community advocated to separate Bhagat Ravidass Ji's bani from the Guru Granth Sahib Ji and to establish a separate granth to be installed in Ravidass Sabha's. These would still loosely be referred to a gurdwarae.... The census was in 2011. Make of that what you want.    On a different note, Afghan Sikhs do indeed marry first cousins. That's not to say, every single Afghan Sikh will marry his/her cousin, but, the behaviour is indeed prevalent in that community.
