The Modern Anand Karaj


Recommended Posts

Also, can we also touch on the fact that Havans were a common practice amongst Puratan Sikhs? It seems like the Puratan sampardas (Nirmala, Udaasi, Namdhaari, and Nihangs) have preserved the practice. However, it's only really the Nihangs that evolved and adopted the modern Anand Karaj despite doing havans for other reasons such as jaaps of Brahm Kavach.

Non-Amritdharis didn't do Anand Karaj around Guru Sahib, and with the rise of old school Nirankaris under Baba Dayalthe Anand Karaj became popularized among non-amritdharis as well. The idea that Sikhs got married around a fire happened because lots of Sikhs who joined from the Hindu panth still continued this practice of havan marriage.

I mean the reason Hindus get married around a fire is because that's one of their devi devte, to us it's just a fire. Naamdharis still do this fire marriage because they view Sikhi as a sect of Hindus.

Interesting. According to Suraj Prakash, SatGuru Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji Maharaj had a Haavan wedding.

Guru Sahib probably did, but again we can't do everything that Guru Sahib did and assume it's ok for us to do the same. We follow the Gurus hukam as Sikhs, not copying what he does, and Guru Sahib's hukam is "Anand viah binaa grahist nahee karnaa" (Not having marital affairs without Anand Karaj)
