Make sure to not inhale the fumes too much lol.

when your doing sanskaar recite Chaupaee Sahib and Keertan Sohila and then do an Ardaas. The ashes must go into a river or dug and buried into the ground.

does anyone have a source for this maryada? i've heard different things, want to verify... this way seems kind of ritualistic (no offense, i'm new to sikhi, just a novice).

its out of bhavana

to an outsider/ noob( : p ), yeh bhavana associated ceremonies will probably sound ritualistic

esp. since u havent grown up in that culture, so its often hard to understand or simply just accept such traditions

u can find sanskaar of kes in most taksal and im pretty sure buddha dal rehitname

lol... to an outsider/noob, taksal and buddha dal rehitname include a lot of things that sound kind of ritualistic.

once again, no offense, just an observation. :)

nearly all puraatan samparda keep this rehat. Tarna Dal, Buddha Dal, Taksaal, Nanaksar, Rarra Sahib etc etc all keep satkaar of kes and do sanskaar. It Isn't ritualistic, its satkaar for kes and kakkaar. Its a gift from maharaj. When a kanga gets damaged we burn it, becoz it is our ang just as our kes is our ang. This is maharaj's bakshish.

to tell you straight up

its out of blind following/faith/bhavana etc

maharaj said kes are his mohr, more precious than any currency. unshorn kes are his insignia. in Punjabi culture, we generally dont simply throw away things we keep dear to us. out ofrespect they are cremated

yea yea, when you think about it logically ish,

when your kanga breaks, or if for some reason, your sri sahib breaks, you don't just throw it away.

when your arm grows a bit too big for your karra, do you throw it away?

after death, do you dispose of your kakkars?

no, they are burned with you. they are part of your sareer, your body.
