Sikh Wedding 4 Laavan Anand Karaj Agreements - Sikh Wedding Priest for Fusion Sikh Wedding Ceremony simple, engaging and sincere…
The 4 Four Sikh Wedding Lavaan's are a spiritual and mystical experiences written in poetic format that are often loosely translated without any personal experience. They are expressions or stages that an individual may journey or progress into Self Realization and eventually Understanding of GOD Consciousness - uniting into the Oneness of the Universal Consciousness .
In our present day these mystical passages are used for the Sikh Wedding Ceremony or Anand Karaj (Ceremony of Bliss). These writings are used ‘out of context’ especially in light of the deeper and profound message revealed in the Lavaan. At a Sikh Wedding Ceremony today, the Lavaan are used as a symbolic physical "marriage between husband & wife " and not for an initiation of a spiritual journey as they were intended to be explored.
Interpreting all the 4 Lavaans. with spiritual context in mind, one sees that these are four paths or stages designed for awareness of greater spiritual attainment and realization, not simple 4 rounds of physically unity to recited and sung at a ceremony.
Having said this, it is fantastic to be able to use the songs of the Lavaan as a Sacred text for spiritual guidance, as a precious nuggets to explore ways to also make a physical marriage of “living as a couple more Peaceful, Unified and full of Bliss”
Here is a brief overview of Interpretations of the 4 Laavan Agreements that will assist you in making your life after the marriage ceremony more practical, manageable and Blissful.
• First Laav: Practice meditation to overcome pain and negative suffering. The state of Blissfulness is a steady and gentle process, cultivate it with progressive conviction.
• Second Laav: Learn to be free of Fear, overcome your separation from Oneness of All. Practice to hear the Universal Song everywhere outside and within.
• Third Laav: Sharing positive dialogue and abundant love with others will invoke the opening of hearts with all you meet.
• Fourth Laav: Experience the stillness of your peaceful and still mind. When your heart blossoms with love and light you will also illuminate others all around you.
