Why Sikhs Wear a Turban?
as the Sikh turban is known, is a vital component of faith in Sikhism, and
should not be dismissed as mere cultural adornment!
When a Sikh men or women wears a turban, the
turban loses its distinction as just a piece of cloth and becomes one with the
Sikh's head. The turban, as well as the other religious objects worn by Sikhs,
have enormous spiritual and temporal significance. Wearing a turban has
numerous symbolic meanings, including sovereignty, dedication, self-respect,
courage, and piety, but the reason all devout Sikhs wear the turban is simple:
out of love and obedience.
