Our state of mind is such that we always try to find some excuse to not follow the commands of the Gurus. So some times we make one excuse other times another excuse. In Rehras Sahib it is written that our only Goal in taking human form is to follow Gurmat and worship Vaheguru. All other works/things are useless and worthless.

This life is temporary and will not last long. When it is over we will regret why didn't we do more Naam Simran, Do more Paath, keep more Rehet. At that time all of our Sehs Sianap manmat thoughts which have guided us away from Gurmat will be no more. In the end only the commands we kept of the Guru will help the soul because in the end that is the only real Dhan(wealth). Sikhs who keep accumulating this wealth(of naam, simran, rehet) will go away from this world as spiritually rich people. Those who don't are Jamma da maal.

Sometimes we come under the pressure of family, society, some special girl and don't want to keep our Kesh, but remember when your life is coming to an end and the terrifying Jamms come for you, your family, society and that girl because of whom you did not follow Gurmat will not come to your aid. At the time one greatly regrets why they abandoned Gurmat coming under worldly pressure.

The yogis do tapasiya for years on end high up in the mountains leaving behind all that they have just so that they can attain a level of peace, control over their minds, to purify their hearts. Guruji gave us Bani and Bana and Amrit. When Guruji requested Amrit from the Panj Piaray, he did Ardas that i will give you my whole family in return for 5bhuk of Amrit. All this so we today could live with our heads held high, attain mukhti by taking Amrit and living life according to our Gurujis Hukum.

If you think its possible to attain mukhti without, go ahead try it. If you can clear your mind, have control over it, attain peace without Amrit, without Gurujis humuk, without Naam, CONGRATULATIONS! You've just found the shortcut to what the yogis and sadhus have been working towards for years on end.

It disgusts me that you would rather Sikhs "cut [their] hair", give up their Sikhi, be a traitor to their Guru Sahib who gave his whole family so we today could live in peace, just so it would be "much easier to get up and get ready" in the mornings?!

You may know "sikhs" who are superstitious, it doesnt make the whole 30odd million Sikhs superstitious. What a daft thing to say!

You think theres no need for Sikhi saroop? Are you in Sikhi saroop? How can you say theres no need for something you have not tried or experienced? There is very much a need for Sikhi saroop today perhaps more than ever before. But i wouldnt expect a sheep to understand this. This is a concept known only to the Singhs. The Singhs who have and will continue to save the ars* of people like yourself.

You ask if Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj tells us anything about keeping Sikhi saroop? I do not have enough knowledge to give you a quote, perhaps my more knowledgable brothers and sisters can help you with that. But, Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaaj created the Khalsa with Amrit. Guruji is our tenth Master, our father. His word is as true, meaningful and relevant as the word of our Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj. So whether or not Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj tells us to keep Sikhi saroop or not, our Dasam Pita does!!

Secondly to that question, Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj is not a book, it is not a collection of rules, dos and donts unlike the Holy Books of say Islam, Christianity, Judaism. Guru ji is Dhur Ki Bani. The literal word of Akal Purkh Maharaaj!

Pul chuk maaf ji

Here are a few lines from Guru Granth Sahib Ji....................

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਿਰਖੁਥੇ ਸੈਤਾਨੀ ਏਨਾ ਗਲ ਨ ਭਾਣੀ ॥

Naanak Sirakhuthhae Saithaanee Eaenaa Gal N Bhaanee ||

नानक सिरखुथे सैतानी एना गल न भाणी ॥

O Nanak, the shaven-headed ones are devils. They are not pleased to hear these words.

ਰੋਮੇ ਰੋਮਿ ਰੋਮਿ ਰੋਮੇ ਮੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਰਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ਰਾਮ ॥

Romae Rom Rom Romae Mai Guramukh Raam Dhhiaaeae Raam ||

रोमे रोमि रोमि रोमे मै गुरमुखि रामु धिआए राम ॥

With each and every hair, with each and every hair, as Gurmukh, I meditate on the Lord.

15 ਆਸਾ (ਮ: ੪) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੪੪੩ ਪੰ. ੭

ਲੁੰਜਿਤ ਮੁੰਜਿਤ ਮੋਨਿ ਜਟਾਧਰ ਅੰਤਿ ਤਊ ਮਰਨਾ ॥੧॥

Lunjith Munjith Mon Jattaadhhar Anth Thoo Maranaa ||1||

लुंजित मुंजित मोनि जटाधर अंति तऊ मरना ॥१॥

The Jains with shaven heads, the silent ones, the beggars with matted hair - in the end, they all shall die. ||1||

3 ਆਸਾ (ਭ. ਕਬੀਰ) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੪੭੬ ਪੰ. ੧੮

............I think these answer your question pretty well.

Bhul chuk maaf Karahu

Cut your hair a million times and it grows back million times. It will keep re-growing even if you kept cutting till your last breath. Cut you hand ONLY once and it will never grow back. You decide what's more important and precious in God's eye; though God could have given us the capacity to regrow our limbs. Lizards, for example, regrow their lost limbs, don't they? All deeply spiritual or saintly people understand this and appreciate hair a lot more than ordinary masses. Loving God starts with loving and abiding to His WILL and His WILL first starts with your BODY. A shaved man looks a featherless rooster in God's eye. Without hair we look incomplete or like a joker in God's eye. Our Gurus know this very well and taught us how to stand up to the mark in God's eye than appeasing the world. World may think hand is more important so that it should regrow but its the hair that regrows every time you cut them. You should be smart to notice thin and oblige. If I lend you my car to make your journey easy and you start to alter it or remove its parts as trash, I won't be very happy, right? Same is true with your body. Use this body to complete this life journey but do not alter it in any way. You do not own this body. It's a gift to you by God. Gifts are accepted and kept as they are!!! Gurbani teaches to stay in His hukam or will everyday.

WHAT YOU RESIST PERSIST

This is a universal law. Apply it to any situation including hair.

This is from a shabad addressed to a muslim. It is NOT any kind of instruction to wear turban.

Yest its talks more.

Some people kept hair and some did not but Guru Gobind Singh Sahib made it mandatory to keep hair.

Every shabad that is in Guru Granth Sahib is address to every sikh, you know this much better then me.

I know,

I just had to rub it in for fun :lol2: .

SInce on the other posts, we have members claiming some of us are missionaries.

So, what would the hard core missionary insist ???

He would insist that the shabad is NOT addreesed to us, but to the muslims.!!! :wow: :wow:

I think me and you both realize, why Guru Arjan Dev ji kept and include this shabad! :respect:
