    Hi everyone

    A respected member of my local sangat passed away last week :( . I've been given the details of the funeral at my city's main secular funeral place, and also to the 'prayers' this coming Saturday at Gurdwara Sahib. I can't attend the funeral today, but I'd like to go to the prayers on Saturday to pay my respect to the family.

    It's a Malaysian-style sangat.

    Any ideas what I can expect on Saturday? Is there anything customary I should be aware of?

    Any guidance in this is much appreciated. I've been to lots of anand Karaj ceremonies at Gurdwara Sahib but nothing funeral-related.

    Many thanks

    This is simple..just like normal gurdwara diwan. There will be kirtan session... a reading of SGGS..BHOG and ardass and Hukmnamah. Nothing out of the way. Just Matha tek and be seated. Guru ak langgar will follow.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
