Sat Sri Akal Ji

I know that the kara was made for Sikhs ONLY,
but now, i see Hindus,Muslums,etc. wearing Karas too,
i even asked some of them "Why do u wear a kara if your not Sikh?"
and they told me "You don't have to be Sikh to wear it"
i was OUT RAGED, I felt like beating the living you no what out of them,
what can we do to stop this nonesense!!

Sat Sri Akal Ji
Why are you so upset? Your reaction seems so strong. I do not understand your perception of what is happening. However, I can share a few thoughts with you.

The technology of the kara is for human benefit. We, as Sikhs of the Guru, wish well to all..... Sarbhat da Bhala... every day in our Ardas! Any action that uplifts a person and gives them a greater experience of consciousness is a positive thing for humanity. Sharing our way of life is a good thing. Guru Nanak's basic teaching is of the oneness of us all. The basic perspective for you to consider is to see God in all.

"There is no Hindu and there is no Muslim" - Guru Nanak Dev Ji

If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all. Try this new perspective.

God bless you, SKKK
