Marriage with sacred fire was prevalent till British Backed Movement of separating Sanatan and Sikhs took over by spreading misinterpretations and self invented distinctions since 1860s onwards.
We would like to know if any scholar come with references and claim that any Guru did marriage without sacred Fire ?
Guru Nanak Dev ji marries Mata Sulakhani Devi ji, around the Sacred Fire. Mural from Baba Attal Rai Gurdwara in Harimandir Sahib. (attached picture)
Guru Ram Das ji ki bani –
ਹਰਿ ਪਹਿਲੜੀ ਲਾਵ ਪਰਵਿਰਤੀ ਕਰਮ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥
In the first round of marriage with (Hari ji) the Truth, the Guru has encouraged us to perform Responsible Actions. I am a sacrifice to (Ram ji) the Truth.
ਬਾਣੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਵੇਦੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਹੁ ਪਾਪ ਤਜਾਇਆ ਬਲਿ ਰਾਮ ਜੀਉ ॥
Strengthen (Brahma ji’s Word, the Vedas) Spiritual Texts, and strengthen (Dharma) Responsible Actions, and give up irresponsible, lazy and harmful actions. I am a sacrifice to Ram ji.
ਧਰਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਹੁ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ॥
Perform Responsible Actions and Meditate on the Name of Hari ji, (the Smritis) Spiritual Texts have encouraged the chanting of Lord’s name.
ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਆਰਾਧਹੁ ਸਭਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਪਾਪ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥
Meditate on the True Guide, who is Within and Without, and all your Toxicity and irresponsible actions will be lost.
ਸਹਜ ਅਨੰਦੁ ਹੋਆ ਵਡਭਾਗੀ ਮਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਮੀਠਾ ਲਾਇਆ ॥
Those fortunate ones who have meditated on “Hari Hari” within their mind, they are blessed with natural effortless Bliss.
ਜਨੁ ਕਹੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਲਾਵ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਆਰੰਭੁ ਕਾਜੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ॥੧॥
Guru Ram Das ji says this is the first round of marriage with Hari ji, with this the process of Enlightenment has begun.
