    I recently the below article and really liked the sikh perspective on marriage.

    http://www.{url not allowed}/news/anand-karaj-and-lavan

    Now I am not too knowledgable with Hindu traditional 7 circles..

    Can any one share their perspectives on their beliefs and how it is different to sikh way?

    Thanks

    The Lavan..the GURU talks to the couple..advising articulating..married life and how its compared to Spiritual Union with The Creator..minds unite..spirtual union is also importnat besides the physical union etc etc...

    The Phereh..there is a Brahmin speaking in SANSKRIT..and instructs the couple..DO THIS..NOW.,.do that now..get up..walk..etc tec and the couple follow his instructions. The phereh are around the Fire...

    I have gone to Hindu Brahmin Marriages..they take awfully LONG...with the smoke getting in the eyes,..many many rituals etc etc...while the Lavan take less than 15 minutes even when sung twice.

    At the end of the day what makes for a SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE is neither the Lavan or the Phereh..its the COMMITMENT the couple have for each other...otherwise..its divorce and bye bey real soon...winkingmunda

    I enjoyed that article, but there is one thing that was not stressed. Again it pertains to the difference between Sikhi and Hinduism. In the anand karaj a couple is not married by a priest In Sikhi a couple marry themselves to Akaal Purakh.

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!
