Wearing Sri Sahib On The Left Side The Only Way?

13 posts in this topic

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh,

Have seen some posts regards Sri Sahib being kept on the left hand side of the body so gattra goes across from right shoulder down.

Only problem,

Im left handed, should I have it on the opposite side as my strongest hand would be going towards my Sri Sahib if/when I need to use it?

Bhull Chukk Maaf

If you left handed and can get a gatra for left handed users go ahead! No rule that u need your gatra right handed way or anything do what suits best.

I have question too, I am right handed and I can't write properly with my left hand but I read somewhere that people who write with their left hand are more intelligent. So should I write with my left hand but the thing is I can't and I can write much neater and faster with my right hand?

Why?You think I was gonna bite ya?

I think the gatra should be on whichever side would be easily accessible.

Nope I think its against your religion to bite me :nono:

Thought you would come up with some rehit that prohibits gatra to be worn on the right side. :blush2:

First I don't come up with some rehits.Guru gobind Singh ji does.Secondly there is no rehit that says the gatra has to be worn on a specific side.

    • I think you've hit the nail on the head here. 
    • A solution is, if amrit-dharis followed rehit, IF, then, only then more people might want to be Singhs. When I say rehit, I don't mean just the paper rehit maryada people have now. I mean following the active lifestyle rehit like in the rehitnaamas, rehit that has been followed since Guru Hargobind. Doing things like learning archery, shooting, horse-riding etc Follow Gurus hukam of learning shastar everyday, and also learn martial arts. (See Nihang Singh dals for example) Instead of being people that religiously follow football and cricket matches, they would be involved in these activities. Then they would be an actual "practising" amrit dhari, as opposed to someone who took amrit just to do paat, which any sehajdhari or "mona" can actually do! Can gurdwaras and sikh associations organise such activities? Organising kabaddi tournaments isn't really going  to make sangat proper amrit dharis. However, organising kabaddi and wrestling training for sangat to be involved in would help! WE absolutely should not act like the disarmed sikhs of colonial times. Instead of becoming like the naamdharis who put the kirpaan symbol in the kanga, we should get out of this colonial compromise of not following martial rehit and get back to actually being Singhs. Can the community do this?
    • This man passed away he, his son and daughter in law were acting like God's gift. During family gathering/ prayer session at their house the old man literally frowned on seeing monehs. Daughter in law n his son spoke to everyone equally, but they forced others into keeping hair/ take Amrit. Not sure about my dad but my mum got compelled by the daughter's words n took Amrit. She was never happy kno wha am saying? Even today she speaks of leaving Amrit behind. I was a kid then never knew reasons why mum took Amrit. Anyways, the old man? Majority of his grandson's are moneh! When he died they all cut their hair. And his eldest granddaughter?? MARRIED A WHITE MAN KEEPS BOY'S HAIRSTYLE!!! (Daughter of his daughter in law)... SANGAT JIO! something to think about, why force/ compel n pester others? THEY ARE ADULTS AND KNOW ABOUT AMRIT/ PRAYERS!
    • actually due to working across town , Mum and Dad didn't have the same input like you think , he always had non-sikh friends growing up did minimal paat and when he went to uni predominately white friends. He has married a dastarwali bibi out of his choice (love marriage) she is also a coconut but will do the Indian thing if it suits her (I know birds of a feather). He refers to us as 'you Indians'  yep we have a good laugh at that. He's an architect so I guess he mixes with a certain type of people and is sniffy about his starting point which frankly he needs to get major ish kicked out of him since it was Mum's machine sewing and dad's grocery that paid for his ungrateful A$$ to get where he got.  Anyway because she is a socialising sikh he has started doing his banian and going to programs ...one good thing  But lately he tries to Lord it over Mum with his interpretation of what izzat and family values should be , of course he seems to believe that the Mother he abandoned should somehow be consulting him on how to proceed. kal ka shokaraa , akkl gitte'ch showing disrespect to his elders then wants to be the big I am SMH
