Sikhism
In the historical development and present usage of symbolization concepts, various
categories and relationships must necessarily be differentiated. Religious symbols are utilized in
conveying concepts which are concerned with relationships of humanity to the holy, or sacred,
and also to the material or social world. Ian Sikhism, Kesh is the practice which allows a natural
growth of one’s hair and this symbolizes respect to the God’s perfection in His creation. Kesh is
a symbol which symbolizes devotion to God and this is a reminder to the Sikhs that they should
obey their God. The uncut hair comes from believe that people must maintain God’s given form
in order to be one with Him. This includes not shaving or cutting hair as hair is one of the many
gifts from God and it should be respected. Sikhs believe that they were created with long hair for
a reason and they accept it as beautiful part of their bodies. However, they do not mind if other
people cut their hair (Kaur, Charanjeet & Zinta, 2017).
