desire to trim my beard

Recommended Posts

Guest jasmeet

Gur fateh, to reply to every one let us keep the argument brief and not run in to pages

To reply to the main question of cutting/triming your kesh/hair i have only one thing to say after contemplating over it for years and by that i mean my entire life more so after i attained 18 yrs of age I am 22 years old sikh now.

'' If you felt like doing it , you cannot change that feeling until you do it and revert back'' mind you i am not talking about changing views and attitude i am talking about the way you felt it.

To the supports of the Thought:

You guys are very right in what you are thinking , be it comfort you seek or looks, the fact is the thought has been perceived and you are not wrong or doomed it is only human to feel so , IT IS NOT A CRIME until perceived from the Sikh Commandments point of view. But you guys felt like doing it and staying a sikh it will not be accepted by the society , Stop caring about them and do what you have to do and see for yourself what feel's right

To the Non-suuporters of the Thought:

BHULACHUKAA DE MAAFI !! I have nothing but the utmost respect for you guys and you guys are the only means who will be the torch bearers of our religion. What ever you guys said is absolutely right but from where you are standing. You guys never FELT the urge to do it not that powerful or overbearing.It was okay at the beginning and now normal finally that you have accepted it or may be it was always a noraml way of life. KUDOS! But the fact is people like us have felt that need and every single day passing by makes it miserable to live. So pressurising a sikh to keep his kesh and showing him the path are two different things .PLEASE STOP PRESSURISING that is my only request and please continue showing the path that is your duty but please dont differentiate on the basis of looks because looks are not everthing in this world.

Waheguru ji da khalsa waheguruji de Fateh!!

Don't cut your beard. That is what Truth within you is telling you. You wont gain anything by cutting your beard but you stand to gain a lot by keeping it. At one time i worried that my beard can make people confused that i am a muslim extremist, but in fact its quite nice that non Sikh people see my beard and think i am a poet, writer, scholar, etc etc. It has gained me a lot of respect that I had never imagined.

What is more important is to focus on your personality, education, physical activities etc than worry about your looks. Make sure you are going to the gym and building powerful muscles and keeping your waist slim, learning self defence, learning swimming, getting into kayaking, rowing, lots other water sports. you could even learn horse riding, rock and mountain climbing, paraglyding, etc etc. So much you could do to make your body look strong and muscular.

And Gurbani will help you forge a radiant, glowing, confident, positive, creative, dynamic, forward looking and loving personality that will draw others towards you anywhere you work, go or live. Education likewise will give you skill sets and the ability to charm others with your extensive knowledge etc.

So all that you are hoping for by cutting your beard is there to gain in other more better ways and God has given you beard to keep, not cut and keeping your beard is a natural thing to do and one small beautiful act of pleasing God and Guru. Anywhere I go my beard is never a problem in making others love me and respect me. This is all through God's grace.

If you've been thinking about trimming it, the your already half way there.

No good coming on here to get confirmation so that you can proceed without guilt.

All the ones that have these doubts usually end up doing it and then realise what a mistake it was and grow it back !!

The reason sikhs keep their hair is because we believe their no reason for humans to remove hair in the first place. The rest of the world removes it and therefore we feel pressure to remove it. If everyone had beards this would not even be a question. We are lucky that as sikhs we get to see what real humans look like and appreciate living in that form, most people have never thought about what they do and why they do it.

I wouldn't trim it because if you trim it - it will grow back longer and thicker....

Guest i am Sikh

hey,

do it , no worries, if ur heart is pure and if u respect others, it doesnot matter how u look, i know how u feel , in this society things go by looks, if u think u will look good after u trim , do it . let me ask something if you walk into a social gathering lets say party or a club , u see a girl and want to approach her, with full on beard do you think u can do that? time have changed this is not 1900 anymore. bottom line be true and pure from heart and adapt to the modern society !!!

Bhaiji, we can all sit here typing and quoting Gurbani on reasons why you should keep your kesh but the initial decision is yours.

It is only you that can pick up that razor and put it to your face.

Take into consideration what the Sangat has said but your final decision will come from within, no one can make this decision for you.

Hope you make the right choice. . . :happy2:

    • I don't think bana is necessary. When I went to my amrit sanchar, I was the only person wearing a bana excluding the panj pyare, the rest wore kurta pajama. They will ask you to take off your pajama though.  
    • Why did you start drinking? You mentioned it's a recent thing having never really drunk before... So what started it off? Why do you drink? Create an account and feel free to send a personal message veer. It would help you to be open and discuss this issue in detail so we may help as best we can.
    • considering the murderer came forward and sent message through media that he killed vipin sharma because VS had arranged murder of one of his bande , his words were this has nothing to do with dharma but the murder of my man , I do not regret a thing about killing him but do not want other sikhs to be punished for what I did
    • lol yes but sometimes I can be b**tchy
