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.

    • Lets stop fooling ourselves ? What purpose does the fire serve ? Is it "Agan Singh" ? lmao . Whenever they're using ritualistic fire, the implicit meaning is fire god 
    • just let the traditional non-chemical preserved onto your skin rather than the cr4p above as that has loads of petrochemicals, oestrogen mimicking substances in them , if you can eat it its safe on your skin as your skin absorbs stuff .
    • There is actually a sakhi of Guru Nanaks wedding.that kandh still stands. And the sakhi says Guru ji refused the fire and used the kitaab or books he carried in which he wrote his bani.  About the laava sakhi, it might be that the pandit was needed to make it official like registry marriage or to do katha afterwards or to even say tue vedoc shaloks while sikhs did phere around a gutka?  Idk but there is that sakhi of Guru Nanak Dev ji refusing the agni

      Are you on any medications. sometimes they can cause these types of side effects
    • Honestly, I don't know. I will look into the matter and see if some answers comes up. Bear in mind I was talking about regular Sikhs. Not the Gurus themselves. Even if there was a fire, it wouldn't have been Vedic in any sense. Well the difference is in what is meant and being suggested. To them "fire" means the whole Vedic shebang and a return to it. One can equally call out practises from Vedic times which are now obsolete and say "lets return to them!" right back to these groups. It's not hard to concieve in reality that certain things remained similar but the intention of disucssing the matter is important. In the case of weddings, there is very little information. Guru Sahib rejected the janeu for example, to which there is a Sakhi and Bani attached. But it is not until Guru Ramdas Ji that Sikhs get their own ceremony, and again I will repeat I was deducing with regards to the use of fire. Lots of ambiguity. Maybe the couple did just stay sitting or standing whilst Laavan were read by Sangat, maybe not. As for Sikhs such as my great-grandparents, that was just a matter of circumstance. One cannot use that argument to promote a return to Vedic style weddings.   Yes I'm aware that within Hindu weddings it is indeed Agni Devta. But we are talking about Namdharis, and from what I have seen, there is no invocation from Rig Ved - that's what I'm saying, we assume that the fire present in a Kooka wedding is considered as Agni Devta when in actual fact to me, it seems as though it's....just a fire. Which really has no particular meaning per se; just a continuation of one aspect of the ceremony. They read Suhi Mahalla 4. A fire is only Agni "Devta" if one believes and invokes.
