Hazoori - ever ready

You can use a hazoori for everything, from a scarf to a blanket, or a shawl, or a towel, or a kummercussen, or a rope, or something to use while picking jujubes :-)

I really like hazooris so I wear one just about everyday.

As far as my limited knowledge works, Hazooriya actually is not so commonly used article of clothing (though one can use this piece of clothing for unlimited use). As the name suggests, it is to be used in Guru's Hazoori (attendance) so it must be clean at all times. It surely should not be used as a towel (and washed before using again if used as towel or like). And Kamarkassa and Hazooriya are two different and essential part of five clothing to be worn as part of Bana....

Thanks for sharing comments on Knowledge Vs. Wisdom on Sikhi. This is something that have to be explored further when it comes to comments on Sikh discussion groups and blogs etc. About Hazooris, till today, I didn't even know such a garment was a part of the Sikh bana. I had seen people wear it in Gurdwaras but didn't think much of it. I knew of kamarkassa in reference to Guru Guru Gobind Singh Ji wearing it on battlefields and taking off during peaceful times. Great pictures of Jujubees. And, they do have a lot of health benefits but can't them right now.

Thank you Sarvjeet Singh Ji for the link. I don't really agree with what's written there. It's simply somebody's opinion and their interpretation of what the Hazoori is for. We all learn from different people and we all relate to our bana differently. For me, every bit of Guru Gobind Singh's bana is practical. It makes no sense to me to put my hazoori between my hands when doing ardaas. I've never used my hazoori as a towel, but I figured if I ever got desperate I could. I can't be really active wearing the hazoori, so I usually tie it around my waist. If I'm already wearing a kumerkasa I'll fold my hazoori and put it away when being active. The Guru will guide us each in different ways, but I appreciate others sharing with me their practices.

You are absolutly right Prabhu Singh jeeoo. Just because someone thinks that thats the way things are, doesnot make it the only way, unless it is supported with some historical fact. It is applicable equally to all, any discussion forum either sikhnet or akj or any, or even I and you or anyone else... In all, all should be thinking universally while making any remarks/comments. Just because somethings doesnot make sense to us, doesnot make it useless... unless we find evidence to say so.

PS. KamarKassa and Hazooriya have been in practical use way before Guru Gobind Singh jee's times, thats what I could make out looking at numerous pictures of other Guru Sahiban times drawn by various artists....

Forgeting the hazoori for a minute I want to know where you got those cholas. You got some mad style kid(just joking I dont realy talk like that). Anyways I think its realy cool that you wear bana all the time and that you let the Guru guide you instead of getting caught in semantics.Take it easy.
WAHEGURU!!!!!
