Kara (Kada)

A kara is a symbolic circular steel bracelet worn by Sikh initiates, as a symbol of the initiate’s commitment to truthfulness, strength, and unity. It is also considered as a visible deterrent to wrongdoing, by attaching a symbol of God to the hand. The Kara is one the five khalsas (articles of faith) of Sikhism. The kara is emblematic of a slave’s bracelet, to remind the faithful that their duty is to god.
