Wedding ( Anand Karaj)
The Sikh marriage ceremony is called Anand Karaj which means 'ceremony of bliss'. The Reht Maryada, which is The Official Sikh Code of Conduct, specifies that no thought should be given to the perspective spouse's caste, race or lineage. Based on a concept depicted in Lavan, the Sikh marriage is not merely a physical and legal contract but is a sacrament, a holy union between two souls, where physically they appear as two individual bodies but in fact are united as one. The bride's past and present becomes the groom's past and present. Her present becomes his and his hers. They feel and think alike and both are completely identified with each other, i.e., they become 'Ek Jot Doe Murti' meaning one spirit in two bodies.
