32 Qualities of the woman

Recommended Posts

In Gurbani, a woman who becomes the “sohagan” has been referred to as “batees sulakhani” means she has thirty-two qualities, which according to Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha are:- beauty, cleanliness, modesty, humility, concord, observance of religion, intelligence, knowledge, service, compassion, truth, dedicated love of spouse, purity of mind, patience, frugality, beneficence, sobriety, chivalry, active habits, house decoration, respect of elders, proficiency in music, poetry, painting, domestic science and embroidery, respectful attention to guests, and bringing up children.

Gurbani enunciates that there is not any difference between the Man and woman. All men and women can be “Sohagan if they have the qualities necessary to please the Lord.

Hang on a minute where in gurbani does it say that about women? The first part of your post does not fit with the second part

I think Suhagan in gurbani refers to the jeev who has finally found God. It has nothing to do with man/woman.

So the title of this post is misleading

    • Back in the day many jananis didn't used to dance - my mum and her sister are terrible at dancing and when I was younger I would ask why they didn't dance like other ladies, and instead just stood there, did the mandatory clapping, and swiftly leave. I remember asking my Bibi about this too. According to them the "upper castes" did not engage in this behaviour; it was not permitted and seen as besharmi. However certain castes were permitted, and so dancers were hired I think? Can't remember. Ironic now though. You see women who are well past the age of wearing brightly coloured suits nach'ing and tapp'ing. Oh vi uchi jaat de. Weddings were so simple. Close family would go for Anand Kaaraj, everybody went back to the house, fed the baraat, sagan, bas. Hun pura drama hunda ah.
    • @puzzled Honestly in that situation it's our farj to say something. Nowadays people are overly sensitive but we should still say something...have to remain cool though and say it pyaar de naal.
    • The suggestive dancing has gone on for decades.  The first time I saw it, my jaw dropped. In Punjab nobody bats an eyelid.  Compared to Punjab, you will probably see more people in the UK going to Anand Karaj and that I'd probably because of the milni and tea at the Gurdwara whereas the milni and tea in Punjab is at the palace.  Never underestimate the lure of free food.  
    • the true history dheaan which now bewakoof people are encouraging to do in Punjab making it easier for their daughters to be attacked
