certain sects do haven like the namdharis they usually do a haven during weddings. Also a interesting passage in Giani Gian Singh's naveen panth prakash 1880 stats that Baba Deep Singh Ji did a Akand Path and a Havan before going to battle. Read the last line.

ਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਸ਼ਾਹੀਦ ਕੀ ਗਾਥਾ ਸੁਨੋ ਉਦਾਰ । ਧਰਮ ਜੁੱਧ ਕਰਿ ਸਿਰ ਦਯੋ ਥਯੋ ਸ਼ਹੀਦ ਵਿਚਾਰ ।

Oh world listen to the story of Shaheed Deep Singh, For Dharam Judh he gave his head, contemplate how he attained martyrdom.

ਮਿਸਲ ਸ਼ਹੀਦਨ ਕਾ ਸਰਦਾਰੈਂ ॥ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਜਲੰਧਰ ਗ੍ਰਾਮ ਦੁਕੋਹੇ । ਕੇਰ ਹੁਤੋ ਸੰਧੂ ਜਟ ਵੋਹੇ ।੮।

Baba Deep Singh was the leader of the Misal Shaheedan, He was born near the town of Jalandar at Dukohe, and was a Sandhu Jatt.

ਅਧਿਕ ਦਮਦਮੇਂ ਰਹਿ ਤਲਵੰਡੀ । ਹੁਤੋ ਬੀਰ ਬਰ ਬਲੀ ਘਮੰਡੀ ।

He would remain at Damdama Sahib in Talwandi. He was a great and brave warrior.

ਸੁਨਿ ਬੇਅਦਬੀ ਬਹੁ ਗੁਰੁਦ੍ਵਾਰੈਂ ।ਚੰਡੀ ਚਢੀ ਤਾਂਹਿ ਅਤਿ ਭਾਰੈਂ ।੯।

When hearing about the disrespect at the Gurdrawa [Harimandar], The spirit of Chandi arose within him.

ਸੁਨਿ ਸਿੰਘ ਪਾਠ ਅਖੰਡ ਕਰਾਯੋ । ਹਮਨ ਕਰਯੋ ਕੰਗਨਾ ਬੰਧਵਾਯੋ ।

Baba Ji organized an Akhand Paat and completed a Havan [before heading towards the battle] and tied a wedding bracelet around his wrist [a preparation for martyrdom as death is seen as a merging with their beloved Lord]

I don't think Havans are allowed in Sikhi, they are part of the Hindu religion and some people have adopted Havans along with Sikhi.

The Hindus believe that the fire god is a witness to their weddings, and that he is a messanger to gods that is why they use fires.

And the ithiaas books such as Prateen Panth Prakash, Suraj Prakash, are not really exactly accurate. They were written

a long time after the historical events recorded in them and they recorded all the Sakhis/stories prevalent at that time without doing research, or finding the source.

This can be a good thing because that means that means they recorded everything that they heard at that time and we can

decide what is true or not. And this way there are no sakhis that would have been left out if they decided to be select some

and dicard others.

    • Ok I will help by getting 2 wives and having 100s mistresses and forcing my kids to be Sikh. Guess I've done my part.
    • Do you think our guys in the West are as prone to the dramatics as resorting to suicide? I personally think they've thrown in the towel; a quiet acceptance of defeat which is mostly attributable to the broader culture that has compounded the idea that it's toxic for a man to question a lady about her antics. 
    • If he's just going to kill himself on finding that out, that's unfortunate but fair enough. But don't start killing other people as well, including the b1tch. 
    • This is the absolute crux of the matter; to find a girl who's pretty enough to get the lad hot and bothered BUT not too pretty that her attractiveness has made her a target for other lads from the moment, as they say in Punjabi, her jawani char gayi in her mid-teens onwards. Before the undercover brahmgyanis chime in about prioritising kamayi and Gurmukh values, for those of our people who don't float around in their own little Satyug that keeps the rest of the Kalyugi world out (a bit like Trump's non-existent wall), these are valid considerations that should be looked at in detail for the rank-and-file people of our community. If the guy himself is between the 4-7 range of attractiveness, he needs to look for a girl within the same range. BUT Punjabi guys (and men in general) over-estimate their physical appeal. A man, more than anyone, has a tendency to inflate his own sense of being. He finds it very difficult to process that he may not be what he thinks he is. A guy in this 4-7 range (which is the vast majority of males on the planet) going after a 9 or 10 girl is living in cloud-cuckoo land if he thinks even a typically middle-class, middle-income job (£30-60k) is going to keep a top-tier girl placated for the next 40-50 years of her life (or at least until she lets her self go or hits the menopause depending on what comes first. Even then her appeal to men may fade, but her aadataa -- habits -- will be nigh on set in stone. If they're rotten since decades eariler, the guy is in for trouble). I'd go as far to say that even a multi-millionaire would need to be on-top of his game from the day he's married to the day he drops dead in order to keep a 9 or 10 as his wife. Today, more than ever, a girl's history counts so much. From what I've seen, the majority of apne guys live in a world that is detached from reality. They may consider themselves street-smart and worldly, but in many respects their understanding of the world is, IMO, based on an inaccurate simulation of a wider culture they don't truly understand. As such, those blind-spots is where they end up being blind-sided by the unforeseen. Then you've got to figure out whether her jawani had indeed gone to her head quite a while ago, or if she's been sensible with it. The answer to this question, IMO, comes IN PART from studying the immediate family, i.e. the dad, mum, and siblings.
