Maya Vatnaa?

Recommended Posts

Guest confuseduk

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.

Lol it's just an old harmless tradition  no harm in it.  haldi is beneficial actually   .people in india have been using it for 1000 of yrs. Goreh have only started using it now 

What I dont like is stupidity like alcohol and shameless behaviour that is exhibited at these weddings now days 

As for the announcements that's just stupid

I think haldi is bajjar kurehit.

A-N-T-I  G-U-R-M-A-T

vatna is made of haldi,  saron da tel and besan , it is applied and then washed off , it is nothing more than a face/skin mask to prevent breakouts and lighten dark skin . No bajjar kurehit if done simply without scrubbing and rubbing .

maiyaan is not about maya but mai   as in mother's  , it is the nanake side preparing both parties to the marriage , usually the females of the nanake do the honours .

as for Ardasia announcing amounts and donators this action actually negates the act of daan as it takes it out of the realm of nishkam sewa into feeding ahankar and haumai . Waheguru ji is jaani jaan , here there is no need for announcement of who is doing the ardas , for what purpose , and asking for material things is futile as Guru ji has told us in Gurbani that path leads to nothing, however if you ask for naam and the simran/remberance you get the things you need

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 .

    • I think this is due to the big improvement of regional cinema industries. I remember watching punjabi movies 10-15 years ago. They were very inferior to bollywood movies. In terms of story lines, special affects and general quality of production. This was understandable though as Punjabi cinema was just starting to come good and was not well fincanced .Many of the early punjabi films were just about some macho punjabi guy acting like a gangster with big mucha lol. I think those days are gone we are now seeing some good story lines and productions instead of those stereo typical films that were made in the 80's and 90's. Poeple can relate more to their own cultual language films more then the hindi type nonsence films. That glorify khans and muslims.Punjabi films can promote Sikhism and Punjabi language and do much good for punjab and punjabis by making good moral films to adsress alcohol and other issues affecting us. What we need is better actors, directors and producers to steer punjabi cinema to a bright future. Maybe it can become a global force? Tamil film industry is huge and they do good at promoting their language, culture and faith.
    • i was just saying that they have created some of the most beautiful architecture and art work   even if the ideas were stolen.  Raphael, michaelangelo etc are some of the greatest artists ever   
    • Why is the comparison wrong?  I am not asking this question as atheist, I am just wondering if there was any reason we had so many Gurus?
    • Punjabi movie industry is gd. Many Punjabi movies are really gd. Most Punjabis i know now only watch Punjabi movies and not Hindi movies, even pakistanis watch Punjabi movies. Punjabi movies are cultured and many have a Sikh theme, hindi movies on the other hand is just full of kanjars and kanjris stripping on screen and doing dirty scenes  you can't actually sit with family and watch hindi movies. Last few yrs there have been many Sikh themed punjabi movies and movies focusing on issues in the punjabi community. The movie Ardas is really gd and is about faith in waheguru and other issues in the punjabi community. Movies like rab da radio, daana pani are really good and about families and breakups. Some Punjabi film makers are also making art house movies   like anhay gore da daan  which is about poverty in the dalit community and chauti koot about a family caught up between the karkhu singhs and army.     Punjab 1984 was good really gd for the 1st half but the 2nd half was not that gd!     Shareek was gd too 
    • People are turning off Bollywood in droves and Punjabi cinema seems to be booming. What you are seeing is the burgeoning of regional cinema, localism seems to be the priority over the centralised Hindu speaking media. So much that the Hindi speaking Mumbai Punjabis in the Bollywood film industry have suddenly discovered their Punjabi roots.
