What does word Rehat Maryada or Maryada mean anyways?

Had been thinking about this word and thought to share my definition of Maryada and also posted it on the Wikipedia.

Rehat - is a word commonly used in Punjabi meaning "way to live" or commonly referred to in Punjabi as "rehni-behni" or "raho" or "rehna" etc.

Maryada - is a word commonly shared in Hindi and Punjabi that is made up of two words (Mar-die, Yaad - remember) meaning remember till death or in other words, refering to traditions that don't die and get carried on. The terms Sikh Maryada or Sikh Rehat or Rehat Maryada are commonly used by Sikhs to refer to Sikh way of life or Sikh traditions.

So both words together:

Rehat Maryada - "A way of life or a tradition that never dies".

Wow! I never even thought of it so deeply and it has such a beautiful meaning.
