    According to an article in today's Indian Express a devout Sikh from Amritsar- Balkar Singh, who happens to be a government servant, has invited the Guru Granth Saheb to attend his daughter's wedding. He says that the Guru Granth Saheb is the living Guru so he has sent the invitation which has been accepted by the Head Granthi of the Golden Temple! Meanwhile, the SGPC officials said that it was not for the first time that the Guru Granth Saheb has been invited!

    With Regards

    waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh.


    Guru Granth ji is ALWAYS present at a Sikh anand Karaj...not as a "guest" the MASTER. The Laavaan da paath is read and Guru ji's HUKMNAMA is acceptance. Ardass is also performed towards this same objective.

    What is the objective of calling "guru Ji' a "guest"...it seems to be an attempt to make everyy other guest EQUAL to GURU JI.....and more importanltly what would GURU JI be "doing" AFTER the Lavaan/Ardass/Hukmnama and Diwan hgas ended..will Guur Ji sroop be taken to the Langgar hall for LUNCH ??..and go along everywhere the wedding party goes ?? It looks like a publicity stunt to me.
    The Jurist Living Person directive applies to Properties and thse can be held in GURU Ji's "name" that is belong to the SANGAT...example GURDWARAS and their Properties can be willed to Guru Ji's name. Rai Bhullar of Sabo Kee Talwandi willed HALF his vast acerage of 1800 acres to GURU NANAK. This is now held in Nankana Sahib Gurdwara sahib's name. Recently the descendants of rai Bhullar in pakistan went to the Pak Suptreme Court to get this will anuulled but failed.

    How very disappointing.

    I realize that there are many old Hindu practices that have not quite fallen away from the Panabi Sikh diaspora. I can forgive a mortal for perhaps an unintentional insult to the eteranal SGGS...but personally I am very sick that the SGPC has played in to such a trapping by accepting the invitiation.
     
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!
