Punjabi Kada

The kada is to constantly remind the Sikh disciple to do God’s work, a constant reminder of the Sikh’s mission on this earth and that he or she must carry out righteous and true deeds and actions, keeping with the advice given by the Guru. The kada is a symbol of unbreakable attachment and commitment to God.[2] It is in the shape of a circle which has no beginning and no end, like the eternal nature of God. It is also a symbol of the Sikh brotherhood. As the Sikhs’ holy text the Guru Granth Sahib says “In the tenth month, you were made into a human being, O my merchant friend, and you were given your allotted time to perform good deeds.”[3] Similarly, Bhagat Kabir reminds the Sikh to always keep one’s consciousness with God: “With your hands and feet, do all your work, but let your consciousness remain with the Immaculate Lord.”[4] The kada is also worn by many ethnic Punjabis who may be Hindu, Muslim, or Christian;[5] moreover, the use of the kada by non-Sikhs is encouraged as it represents the “totality of God”.
