Sawa lakh se EK larraoan
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" 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.
