    Maya Vatnaa?

    To the brave Singh's and Kaur's, My first question is that i've gone to many weddings and never understood the relevance of a "maya vatna" or "mayan". They sing songs and apply haldi or whatever to the skin but isn't maya a sin, so <banned word filter activated> are they doing? My second question is often I hear at akand paaths and weddings that this person did "dus pound haajare kithee" forgive my spelling. But whats the point in announcing how much someone has donated? Is it a competition? are they trying to buy their way into such kand? I just don't understand Thanks in advance.

    I need some advice please. I am getting married in May next year. We have booked the gurdwara and are now deciding on the reception. Initially I have always thought to myself I wouldn’t mind not having a reception, this is just because I don’t like too much fuss (and don’t understand why I would spend so much on feeding people I am not necessarily close with). But as the wedding talk has started, now I am getting excited and have thought actually I don’t want to miss out and regret not having a reception, instead we could have a smaller reception and invite close family and friends only. The problem is of course this is not just up to me and my fiancé, now two sets of parents are involved! My father is quite traditional, he straightaway said I am not doing a reception, we are providing nice lunch at the Gurdwara and the grooms side can do what they want. I thought it was unfair for him to write it off straight away but I do understand as traditionally the grooms side pay for the reception? Then my fiancé’s parents came over couple weekends ago and said they definitely want a reception and suggested we can go half and half, so instead of langar at the gurdwara we go straight to the venue for lunch. At that time my dad did not say anything, but since then we have been arguing at home about what to do. If we have a reception, I don’t want a lunchtime one as i think they are too rushed as the doli will need to be done after. But if we do a reception in the evening or next day, we will be paying for the lunch at gurdwara and paying towards the reception (i would help of course, not letting my dad pay for everything). Because of this me and my partner have been arguing so much as we haven’t come to a decision. He’s saying if we don’t want a reception, they will have one but we will only be able to bring limited people, which is fair but I wouldn’t be happy if my family can’t be there. The other option is no reception at all, lunch at the gurdwara from us and then the doli. I feel like I am being pulled in different directions, I want to ensure everyone is happy and my fiancé and I are happy too but this doesn’t seem to be happening at the moment. I don’t think I have ever been so stressed when this is meant to be a happy time!Any advice would be much appreciated.
  3. Akaal Ji Sahai, In the UK we have a current polarized view of inter-faith Anand Karajs: some for; some against. Whenever a wedding is planned between an engaged pair, clearly in love, turning up to the Gurdwara with Nimrita, Love and Respect, with their families, they're met with crowds of Sikh yout, angry, chests out, displaying aggression, intimidation and causing a rukus; protesting the Anand Karaj's Is this all the Singhs are good for nowaways? Stopping weddings? Got nothing better do than acting bad, chests out stopping weddings? Where are these wastemans when 276 Nigerian girls have been kidnapped by Boko Haram Terrorists in Nigeria? When drugs are being peddled in streets? When girls are being raped and being made sex slaves? Where these "rudeboys" when fighting ISIS and standing up for TRUE injustice. When it's time to give Shaheedi for truth and justice? When they're actually needed? Stopping weddings pales in comparisons to what these mice in lions outfits should be doing... I feel all these wastemans / wannabe Singhstas are good for is scaring bacharey (who don't even know nothing, mean no disrespect) at weddings and people who are looking to get married. The gorey already think religious people are extreme - we don't need to blacken the name of Sikhism and make ourselves out like all the islamists.
  4. Has anyone else heard of apne mainly north americans / canadians getting married in mexico or other beach or holiday destinations, what are your views as regards to the SGGS ji being taken to beach resorts for lavan ceremony is this beadbi and is maharaj ji being given full respect / satkar or have apne stooped even lower in there self conceit. As far as i can find out their is only one sikh organisation in mexico not even sure if it is a Gurdwara or a kundalini yoga group so are they responsible for SGGS ji being taken to beach resorts etc and if so are they just making money and if not how is SGGS ji being taken to these places and by whom. http://blog.shandrophoto.com/tag/sikh-wedding-mexico/ http://www.sikhcentermexico.org/
