Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Daas has decided to make the topic of today to talk about the 5ks and their importance is Sikhi. The 5 are Kesh, Kirpan, Kangha, Kara, and Kachera. Each Kakkar will get it's own paragraph to prevent confusion.
Kesh: This Kakkar is probably considered most important as we are all born with Kesh, (uncut hair); regardless of whether we will ever accept the Sikh path in the future and allow Guru Sahib to change us from the inside. Many of even other faiths at the levels of spirituality of just bellow Sach Khand; (only those who have accepted Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji can enter Sach Khand). Bhagti and Spirituality have both been discovered that there is some important thing in Kesh; but even greater is the possibility to potentially limit Haumai from following the Guru's Hukam.
Kirpan: This Kakkar is mostly of remembering the idea of defending someone with your own life on the line; Kirpan, (sheathed sword). This can control a person's anger; as the idea that you have something which can potential bring grace; (literal meaning of Kirpan), then the individual in question has to provide a higher level of spirituality. Mostly only those who have Chacked Amrit wear a Kirpan; as of many things responsibilities in wearing one.
Kangha: The Kangha, or wooden comb; represents cleanness and makes us remember not to be attached to anything as some of the Kesh which we grow may come off as we comb twice a day; and allows us to be instead attached to the Naam which we receive from Guru Sahib. The Kangha is important also because of the need for remembering Vaheguru with each time we comb our hair.
Kara: Kara; or steel/iron bracelet makes us remember Vaheguru and makes us do good work; Daas doesn't have to good of an explanation for it.
Kachera: The Kachera; (long undergarments); is important as it controls a form of lust that we may we fighting whether we are married or unmarried. That is all Daas can say for Kachera.
Vaheguru, Vaheguru, Vaheguru, Vaheguru; We should remember that the 5ks are Hukam; and while may not understand the importance of the Kakkars, we should still wear them. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
