maharaaj knows everything. they wouldnt have given us a kirpaan if it was going to become less useful as time went on. surely that would be a fault if this was the case.
Your too occupied, by it's physical purpose. Its a weapon of non-violence.

Obviously, it does not server the same puropse as it did in the past.

the sikhs are meant to be warrior and saints and always be ready for war against injustice etc... hence they still keep it. Whether they feel the need to use it or not.
That's what I'm saying. I don't see why your arguing with me.

I' ve explained what it is, and it's meaning. There is a lot more to Sikhism, than the Kripan, so why don't you just move on.

Is anyone able to answer my question I posted earlier? It was:

So the reason of hair being a gift from God doesn't apply to women? How come?

I'm genuinely curious and it's not "spam".

The keeping of hair is practised by both women and men. So it applies to both. I think that only men keep their hair uncut is a misconception.

Does that include facial hair for women?

I am because if the reason for keeping hair uncut is because it's a "gift from God", then women should apply it just as much as men. As you say, however, I don't see Sikh women with facial hair. Makes me question the policy of keeping hair uncut.

Wee, I don't see why you need to question it, it could be the woemn you have seen , naturally don't grow facial hair. If it was, a baptised Sikh women, shouls not cut any hair at all.

Its a matter of how much they pracitice their religion and how feel about certain things at this point of their life.

From what i know a sikh cutting hair is similar to a muslim drinking or eating pork or the hindu that eats beef.

Not everyone is going to practise their religions all out. Theirs prob only a handful of people if even that, that follow the ins and out of their religions.

suave, i did answer on the last page
and g_star_raw did now
I know tonnes of sikh girls who don't cut any head or facial hair. Its natural for girls generally to not grow much lol, its barely noticable, its just society which has gotten used to seeing a completley bare face.

On a similar note, following on with the "gift from God" thing, I take it Sikhs have nine inch nails then? If not, why not?

singh means lion
kaur means princess

lion is a symbol of bravery and soldier side, the women are also soldiers, but they are the Guru's daughters, we consider the Guru to be our true king, so his daughters are his princesses.
