I strongly believe, that literature sikhism has is great !!

We can really expand like anything.. if we dont have restrictions of turban,
beard basically identity.

It may be very immature thinking. But I believe our literature is not
being spreading because of the restrictions we have.

Turban and Beard are lifestyle and Identity, True. The word of the Guru's is completely universal and all inclusive, True.
The Nazi's had a horrible message which an entire country and it's allies bought into, but look at the conciousness it created ( I believe this is self explanitory). The Nazi's were an extremely large amount of people. Look at the emptiness of Modern culture, everyone is concerned with whats fresh or not ( thats fine we all want to look good) popculture whats cool or not which group of people have the pulse and which do not. That is also an extremely large amount of people. So What!!!!!!! The conciousness that the Adi Granth, And the Guru's purveyed, is not always going to be popular or appealing to all. But , there is a void that it is filling. There are millions of people in this world that are looking for something deeper. They can find it there in those pages. The ones that are truly serious about thier spiritual development wont give a damn what we look like or how we deliver our knowledge, because they will recognize the basic truth when they hear it . It will go straight to thier hearts and penetrate and uplift them. The thing that is sad is our very own belief that we are not good enough to be held up to the light and be seen. It is not spoken, but it is there, and it is completely false. Human Beings are human beings whether they dress differently or not that is our bottom line commonality. That is why we should not change in order to appeal to others. I feel that we need to re-instill into our people ( children) the pride we should have as a Khalsa Nation. Then our strength will speak volumes alone.

A little longwinded answer I know, but. it answers your question. I hope that it helps you

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh, God bless you and keep you safe and strong
