The Sikh turban is worn by both men and women. The turban is not just laid or wrapped around the head, it is tied in a special
way as to maximize the benefits to the wearer. The turban does not just sit on top of the head, it caresses the skull in such a way as to enhance the powers of the amazing human brain. Properly tying the turban enables
one to command the sixth center, the Agia
The Turban Is A Crown
"Given the positive and growing public awareness of Sikhs,
Sikh women manifestly express their parity with Sikh men when
they tie turban, thereby advocating gender equality. Without
the turban the perception persists that Kaurs are not true Sikhs. Singhs are perceived to be the genuine, even dominant gender.
Women wearing a turban makes gender equality more apparent. Sikh women make a powerful statement about gender equality
when they tie turban. It is a graceful and effective way of putting Sikhs
and other communities on notice. It says, "We are who we are in support
of everyone's human rights irrespective of gender." -- DualityOptics.com
Covering the skull stabilizes cerebral matter and
the twenty-six parts of your magnificent brain, which are interlocked with the
neurological system and the electromagnetic field. Covering one's
head creates a focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres,
and tunes up the neurological system. The whole head is
covered, not just the Crown Chakra.
Any head covering that covers the entire head is acceptable; white
natural fabric, such as cotton, is ideal.
In America, the followers of the Sikh Dharma are the only spiritual group whose practice includes the wearing of turban. Sikhs tie turban as a constant reminder to live life as a student (sikh). In addition to its technical aspects the turban acts serendipitously as an effective
sociological filter, i.e., a Bigot Detector. A bigot is a
person who is intolerantly devoted to their prejudices
or opinions. See Harpreet Singh's Comments On Why Sikh Women Don't Tie Turban.
