The Sikh Wedding
Traditionally the Sikh Wedding is known as the Anand Karaj - which means blissful event. This book captures the spirit of the Sikh Wedding through colorful photographs of various ceremonies connected with the wedding. Each ceremony from the beginning is explained in full: kurmai (or roka), ring ceremony, shagun, baarat and milni, laavan (the wedding ceremony), and doli. The book also provides explanation of each of the four lavaans in the Anand Karaj as well as a glossary of translation of some popular Punjabi words used throughout the wedding ceremonies.
