Katha of laava by Bhai Sukhjeevan Singh during S2I Canada Tour 2014. Part 1/3

One of the finest Katha of Bani Lavaan You Will Listen to.

Guru Amar Das, the third Sikh Guru tells us on page 788 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib about the meaning of marriage to a Sikh couple – Effectively, the Guru defines a Sikh marriage in these 2 lines:

“They are not said to be husband and wife who merely sit together. Rather they alone are called husband and wife, who share one soul in two bodies.”

Thus the partnership of marriage is given a special meaning – a new dimension. For a union of marriage to be successful, the two personalities have to merge into one – a spiritual bonding through understanding and love.

The Guru, through the four laava, gives the Sikh couple further spiritual guidance for their life together; a journey together towards liberation and union with God. The Guru tell the Sikhs of the four golden rules of married life. These rules start very clearly to define the path to be threaded together in this sacred union. The Shabads inform us how the couple as a team has to first begin by following the path of righteousness and sinless-ness.
