Women in Weddings

Recommended Posts

Many times at anand karaj ceremonies we see men, primarily granthis, officiating the union. Women’s involvement is rare and many people have never personally witnessed it. At Kaur Life, we wanted to showcase the families and couples who have asked the women in their lives to be a part of their anand karaj ceremony. It is a unique way of honoring the women in a couple’s life and celebrating close relationships. Furthermore, involving women in the anand karaj ceremony publicly showcases the equality between men and women inherent within Sikhi. To those who shared the following photos, thank you for giving us a peak into your anand karaj. We recognize that weddings are intimate, sacred moments and we all feel blessed to be able to see a step on your Sikhi journey.

Too much feminism. There is no rule that bars the women to be a granthi. Just because it's not happening does not mean that someone is enforcing any rule. All are created equal and anyone can do anything they want but sometime folks takes stuff too seriously and get stuck egoism.

We shouldn't be making this a political statement, those who become Granthis should know Gurmukhi well, whether through years of education and hard work, or through Gur-prasad to know it. Some random person saying they want to be a Granthi shouldn't just get that position. If a Singh or Kaur has such qualifications, and can explain what is being said, then they should be a Granthi.
