8 The first (Introductionary) Ardaas In this Ardaas (prayer) only the bride and groom and their parents stand and participate to seek Guru Ji’s blessings before proceeding with wedding ceremony. kIqw loVIAY kMmu su hir pih AwKIAY “Whenever there is any work on hand, address Vaheguru about it and invoke His blessings.” (Ang 92, SGGS)

9 The First Hukamnama – The Order (Hymn from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) A Hukamnama is a random reading of the first shabad (hymn) on the ang (page) which Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji opens on. Through the Hukamnama, Guru Ji speaks and showers His blessings upon the couple, the parents and the holy congregation.

10 Tying the Wedding Knot This ceremony is known as ‘Palle Dee Rasam’, where the bride’s relatives (usually the father) give her away to the groom. Holding the boy’s sarf in her hand, the bride and groom physically join in communion, ready to accept and affirm their marriage vows in front of Guru Ji During this ceremony the musicians (Raagis) sing a shabad (hymn).

14 The Advice to Couple At this point the Granthi Singh (the person who reads and explains Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) explains to the the couple the importance of married in relation to Gurmat (the Guru’s teachings) and how through the Guru’s teachings they can make their life peaceful and happier. The couple are asked whether they have taken Amrit (baptism), and if not they are asked to agree that in the near future both husband and wife will take Amrit and commit themselves to the Guru, just as today they have committed themselves to one another.

15 The main marriage ceremony  Four hymns from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji are read to solemnise the Anand Kaaraj (Sikh marriage).  In these hymns, Guru Raam Daas Ji, the fourth Sikh Guru, has described the marriage of the individual soul with the Eternal Soul.  These four hymns mention four stages in the progression of love between spouses and also of human souls towards union with the Supreme Soul, Vaheguru.

16 Marriage is a spiritual journey of one soul in two bodies, which needs love, mutual respect, mutual trust, mutual adjustment and commitment to attain unity with Vaheguru. The essence of the four hymns may be summed in the following words: - Contemplation of Vaheguru’s Name - Fear of the Immaculate Vaheguru - Bairaag and longing of Divine Love - Harmony and attainment of Vaheguru Guru Raam Daas Ji mentions that the married life should be moulded to the spiritual and ideal teachings contained in these hymns.

17 1.During the marriage ceremony, the Granthi recites the first Laav (vow). 2.Musicians (Raagis) then sing the same verse, while the bride and the groom walk clockwise around the Guru Granth Sahib Ji. 3.When the musicians (Raagis) finish singing the verse, the bride and the groom bow and sit down. This protocol is repeated for each of the four marriage verses.
