Thanks for the info, always interesting to learn something new and find out about some other cultures/religions.
I can't find it off the quick search, but there was an interesting cbc interview with a Sihk gentelman that in PEI that was discussing being a voluntary firefighter, and how he worked it around some of the religious considerations for growing the beard. I think I've shared it before on other threads but was one of those stories that stuck with me.
It was really interesting and he was talking about the Service aspect, and how choosing to shave (the days where he was on duty) was part of the religion so he was balancing it all out and making that personal sacrifice in service of his community. Hadn't really thought of that but was interesting, and thought it was admirable of him.
