The 5Ks of Sikhism
Kesh - Long, uncut hair
Kesh: This symbolizes respect for Waheguru by not changing the way he made you.
Kachera - Baggy Shorts
Kachera: This symbolizes modesty - they are used instead of underpants or boxer shorts. They also symbolize a readiness to go into battle for their faith if necessary.
Kanga - Comb
Kanga: This reminds Sikhs to keep their lives in good order; as well as their Kesh.
Kara - Steel Bracelet
Kara:This symbolizes Waheguru as having no beginning or end. It also is a physical reminder of Him.
Kirpan - A small sword
Kirpan:This reminds sikhs to fight against evil; both physical and spiritual; in their every day lives. Most of these are either plastic or welded shut.
