(1) Sukhmandir Kaur says:

The horizontal lines you see on the wall are the word Waheguru written over and over again in Gurmukhi by hand on paper. This is a form of simran, or remembrance, of Waheguru, the Wondrous Enlightener.

If you didn’t tell me, I would not have known it was hand written. From a distance, it looks like a pre-made pattern.

Interesting with the scriptures on the wall.

On your above post about Turbans.
No offense, but there is this joke in Singapore.
Question : “Why didn’t the traffic police stop the motorist without a helmet?”
Answer : “He was wearing a turban.”

Sikhs certainly have many creative ways of remembering their Creator. We could all do with a little more of their mindfulness.

Amazing. Such a beautiful custom.

(16) WeeShenanigans says:

Devoted… After I read what was going on in the photo I started thinking about how long it took to make the waheguru wallpaper. How long does the wallpaper last? Do they replace the papers as need be or as a whole?

(17) TItanium says:

Beautiful. An intriguing custom; thank you for sharing it!

(20) Sukhmandir Kaur says:

Napaboaniya APAD , No offense taken infact thanks for sharing it. I watched a video of a young woman tying a formal turban she used like 4 lengths of turban cloths by the time she finished. It had to be a couple inches thick. If that’s not a helmet I don’t know what is. Sikhs in the US and Canada have been fighting for the right to wear a turban with out a helmet since the helmet law went into affect. So good to know there are places where they can.

(21) Sukhmandir Kaur says:

My understanding is that the man in the center wrote Waheguru on each sheet of paper and hung it on the wall sheet by sheet. I can only imagine how long it took to do . Probably he is still at it. I imagine he would replace anything which needed replacing. Paper can last a very long time, scores of decades.

(26) Dianne says:

The traditions and customs are very interesting. I always love how colorful the photos are. :D

Yes, that’s a point & shoot camera in my picture. I took the shot with my SLR. It’s nice having a big view finder on the back – except when out in the bright sun. Then it’s hard to see.

(31) Amy says:

RE the USA’s helmet law – this is supposed to be a free country, with freedom of religion. It bothers me that the law conflicts with Sikhs’ ability to freely practice their religious beliefs.

(32) Nancy says:

I love the idea of surrounding yourself with holy words, so you can reflect on them almost every minute. Lovely!
