    Inspiring bit of literature teaching us about the dastaar and why we should keep it.

    To Guru Jee we offered our Head
    Because through Akaal Purkh, by the hand, we were lead
    To become a sacrifice to our Beloved, we said
    So we can walk this earth alive yet dead

    We love you Guru Gobind Singh Jee
    Please, I beg, abide with me
    Don’t allow me to follow and bow to Society
    Not even out of politeness or propriety

    Let us stand tall with our Turban
    We don’t care about trends bling or urban

    Our Dastar is our Crown
    It reminds us to keep our ego down
    It gives us the status of a royal Highness
    It keeps our kesh from becoming a tangled mess
    Guru Ji blessed us with our beautiful long tresses
    Each time the wind blows, He runs His hand through our hair, each single one He protects and

    Without a turban there is no Kaur or Singh
    Just as without a crown there is no Queen or King
    Our turbans bless us with a status so High
    Mixtures of blue, black, orange and white extend beyond into the sky
    Wow, people comment, they look so radiant

    The appearance of the Sikh is God Himself, so Magnificent
    We have been blessed with Guru jee’s beautiful Form
    We have something so special; we don’t belong to the norm
    Please do upon your head the turban adorn
    Give yourself to Guru Jee and as His child be re-born

    Be Proud
    Let your Dastar shout out loud
    Don’t be a follower, lead the crowd

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
