Sikh Marriage Proposal NYC Times Square

Recommended Posts

They are both flattered, I'm sure.

They didn't need to make it a public event and if they really had to then it should be a Punjabi proposal and not a 'sikh' proposal.

Give your kids a choice

you're funny ... what do you think guru ji taught us conspicious consumption, extravagance and haumai nu patte paune or focus on the actual gurbani, vichar on the meaning and strive to live accordingly ? I did spend money on my wedding but it was my kirt di kamai not my parents' , we had langar before and after the two marriages (both done under Guru ji's roof) prayers of both faiths were done in Guru ji's hazoori, and bidaai was from Gurughar...

I'm sure my kids will be planning theirs , there's nothing wrong in it but I will advise them to not waste money on show but maybe put it towards helping others

I am not surprised by who posted this, but the content was not necessary.

Also, the title should have said 'Indian' or 'Delhiite punjabi' or 'punjabi'

During the Anand Karaj there are 50 people and at the reception there are 200 people.

In the olden days only 5 men from the grooms side.

not when my grandparents married then it was like a whole village attending and the girl's family had to feed and look after them for days , my parent's time family gathering still huge but only for a day max ,when my younger mama got married in Punjab during 80s then the bharat party only max 11 and everyone was stressed out if they would come back safe . Now big guest list but hardly anyone goes to the gurdwara for the wedding , my brother was married in Punjab in 2000 and it was literally him , the immediate family and some of my sakhe mamey , thaia ji thaiee ji and his kids  my Nani bus rest were more interested in chugli , drinking and eating then dancing

Bhein ji with four kids to marry you should be spending less time chatting & more on overtime.

Having an Anand Karaj at Gurdwara too can be costly why not have the ceremony at home, be frugal 😆

that's what the family tradition was ...akhand paat sewa by whole family , bheta to dharamshala of pind. Shaheedan Singh de naam te sewa (langar te nave bastar) of panj Gursikh . Family would do matha tek and ardas, bhog at dharamshala before going on janjh or in case of bibi before arrival of janjh. Full sewa was taken by family members ... 

In mine we did langar sewa as a couple before and after e.g.  making ladoo for sangat from scratch in gurdwara and all dishes, washing trays etc.

it's about love for Guru Panth ji just as much as Guru Granthji

    • Guest Singh Jee, you need not any more ardaas or arambh again. Just follow what the Bani says. So, what does the Bani say?  It clearly says: ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਆਸਨੋ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਉਰਸਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਕੇਸਰੋ ਲੇ ਛਿਟਕਾਰੇ ॥ Naam Thaero Aasano Naam Thaero Ourasaa Naam Thaeraa Kaesaro Lae Shhittakaarae ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਅੰਭੁਲਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਚੰਦਨੋ ਘਸਿ ਜਪੇ ਨਾਮੁ ਲੇ ਤੁਝਹਿ ਕਉ ਚਾਰੇ ॥੧॥ Naam Thaeraa Anbhulaa Naam Thaero Chandhano Ghas Japae Naam Lae Thujhehi Ko Chaarae ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਦੀਵਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਬਾਤੀ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਤੇਲੁ ਲੇ ਮਾਹਿ ਪਸਾਰੇ ॥ Naam Thaeraa Dheevaa Naam Thaero Baathee Naam Thaero Thael Lae Maahi Pasaarae ਨਾਮ ਤੇਰੇ ਕੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਲਗਾਈ ਭਇਓ ਉਜਿਆਰੋ ਭਵਨ ਸਗਲਾਰੇ ॥੨॥ Naam Thaerae Kee Joth Lagaaee Bhaeiou Oujiaaro Bhavan Sagalaarae ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਤਾਗਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਫੂਲ ਮਾਲਾ ਭਾਰ ਅਠਾਰਹ ਸਗਲ ਜੂਠਾਰੇ ॥ Naam Thaero Thaagaa Naam Fool Maalaa Bhaar Athaareh Sagal Joothaarae || ਤੇਰੋ ਕੀਆ ਤੁਝਹਿ ਕਿਆ ਅਰਪਉ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਤੁਹੀ ਚਵਰ ਢੋਲਾਰੇ ॥੩॥ Thaero Keeaa Thujhehi Kiaa Arapo Naam Thaeraa Thuhee Chavar Dtolaarae ਦਸ ਅਠਾ ਅਠਸਠੇ ਚਾਰੇ ਖਾਣੀ ਇਹੈ ਵਰਤਣਿ ਹੈ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥ Dhas Athaa Athasathae Chaarae Khaanee Eihai Varathan Hai Sagal Sansaarae ਕਹੈ ਰਵਿਦਾਸੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਆਰਤੀ ਸਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਹੈ ਹਰਿ ਭੋਗ ਤੁਹਾਰੇ ॥੪॥੩॥ Kehai Ravidhaas Naam Thaero Aarathee Sath Naam Hai Har Bhog Thuhaarae   Guest Jee, with the verses above , you can see by yourself, that Bhagat Ravi Das is telling us, that, when one is engaged in His devotion with focused attention,  in His Nam, that is all one needs to do, for this His devotion, is more than enough, than any outer ingredients. wahiguru unlike any other gods, godesses, devis, devtays, prophets, avatars, needs nothing from us, except our full atention with love and devotion at His Lotus Feet. Such is the undescribable infinite wadeeayee of our beloved Wahiguru Akal Purukh. Sat Sree Akal.
