    Ok so you all know I have been practicing tying a dastar for awhile now. I feel I'd like to wear it around people a little bit prior to doing Amrit. Would it be ok to tie it for samagam this weekend at the Gurdwara? Even if most of the time I don't tie one....yet?? Or will people look down on this?

    My thinking is, wear it around people gradually so it won't be all at once all of a sudden.

    I DO know a lot of men who tie turban ONCE a week... for gurdwara and that's it. So why am I feeling like I might be doing something wrong?

    I have to be there 4 am to help with breakfast langar, and so I need to know soon... whether or not I can / should.

    Thanks!

    Who cares what they think? If you feel like wearing it go ahead. Haters gonna hate. There is nothing you can do about that. Just feel sorry for them. Their lives are probably miserable.

    Why on the earth will they look down upon you? Its a Gurdwara......IMO they'll be quite happy about it. Go ahead with it.

    I did it!!!!!!! And I am so glad I did!!! I got nothing but compliments, and beyond that, I can't explain... except that I was treated 'differently' not that I was ever treated bad at all, but people that never really talked to me before came right to me today! Also, people from away who were here for the samagam, I had a few uncles / aunties beg me to come to samagam in their city later this Summer. It's like I was seen in a while new light!

    I was so worried for nothing!!! I guess I was just scared of the change... because its so outward and not something you can hide at all.... but I guess that was the point - to stand out - why Guru Gobind Singh Ji created the uniform of the Khalsa and turban as part of that.

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!
