Importance of Shikha

Q. what is importance of having a shikha. Why do Vasinavas keep a shikha?

A. Sikha is an integral part of a Vaisnava’s appearance. Just as a policeman has his uniform that distinguishes him from ordinary citizens, or a businessman has his own business attire, the sikha along with other things, distinguishes a Vaisnava from ordinary people, especially Mayavadis. The Puranas explain that the spiritual master rescues his disciple by pulling his sikha when he sees the disciple slipping into maya.
