You've stated that it is okay for women to remove facial hair but yet urge our Sikh brother to resist the temptation. Can someone offer me an explanation to this - in an easy to read manner?
In regard to your question please read: http://www.sikhnet.com/sikhnet/youth.nsf/All+by+Date/b41ada2e212b6042872567a700413891?Open Ultimately, the question is between you and Guru, on whatever level you understand it. When someone requests help with any problem, which for them is painful, it is good to acknowledge the pain and respond with compassion. If you trace the entire thread of the response, and the further responses cited above, a more complete picture unfolds. If one is searching for a dogmatic, authoritative conclusion which can remove any doubts one may have, keep in mind that Naam Simran in devotion to the Guru is the only place where one's doubts are truly removed. That is where this thread of questions and answers has led.
