Sikh massacre - August 5th 2012 in a suburb of Milwaukee, a Christian white supremacist walked into a Sikh temple and opened fire killing 6 of the temple's members. He stupidly thought they were Muslims. Maybe the shooter should have read this first. But then again he shouldn't have walked into ANY place of worship and opened fire.

The 5 K's of Sikhism

Sikhs have a set of core beliefs and use a variety of symbolism.

The Kara is originally a bracelet made of iron or steel and was first given by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the 10th Sikh Master, in 1699 as one of the 5 K's of the Sikhs - a powerful protection and radiant symbol for the one who wears it. A circle with no beginning and no end, the Kara represents man’s unbreakable relationship with the eternal creator and the Infinity. The steel or iron is a reminder of the strength of the bond which unites us together and ultimately to the Divine.

The Sikh Kara represents man’s unbreakable relationship with the eternal creator and the Infinity. In the science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Kara is also valued for its energetic-magnetic effects on the Aura.
