The primary purpose of the pre wedding rituals is to kick off the religious and social festivities leading to the marriage ceremony. These rituals are known by various names such as Devak, Grahamak, Graha Shanti etc. These rituals are typically done separately by the boy's and girl's parents in their own homes. However, they can also be done together, if necessary. It takes about an hour to set up and one hour to do these rituals.

Wedding Ceremony

In Hindu culture, marriage is one of the most important sanskaras or rites of passage that a Hindu observes during his or her lifetime. Briefly stated, the marriage or the Vivaah Sanskar is the transition from the first stage of life, devoted to education and learning, to the second stage of life, devoted to building a household and raising children. The married couple pursues Dharma, performing the righteous duty, Artha, the acquisition of wealth and Kama, the enjoyment of natural desires. They lead a productive life of work, service and enjoyment, fulfilling various duties and obligations towards themselves, their families and society at large. In Hindu scripture, marriage is a sacrament with strong moral and ethical values. It is meant to unite the bride and the groom firmly so that they essentially become one in soul and spirit.

The Hindu marriage ceremony is primarily based on the marriage of Surya, the daughter of Savita (The Sun) to Ashwinikumar, as described in the Rig-Veda, one of the oldest Hindu scriptures. After Ashwinikumar wins the chariot race, Savita gives away the bride in a splendid ceremony. It is written in Sanskrit, one of the oldest language in the world.

Think of the actual wedding ceremony as if it were a romantic story, where the bride and the groom come to the Mandap, separately, as if unknown to each other. Then they fall in love and ask the parents' permission to get married. We explain them what the Hindu marriage means and they accept the obligations that go with it. During the various rituals, the couple commits to remain faithful to each other and repeat the pledge in front of the Fire God, the Agni and all the witnesses. Then, they walk seven steps together committing to seven marriage vows to each other, about their future life together. We all bless them and wish them a very happy life and they leave the Mandap as a newly married couple!

The traditional hosts for the ceremony are the bride's parents. The groom and his family are the guests arriving from outside to the Mandap. The ceremony revolves around the bride and her transition to the in law's home. The ceremony depicts the transition for the Bride and the Groom, from the first stage of their lives, Brahmacharyashram, to the second stage of their lives, Grahasthashram.

It takes you thru the logical steps of first meeting of the bride and the groom, their decision to get married, bride's parents giving away the bride, the couple committing to marriage in front of the sacred fire, bride's transition to her in-law's home, the couple taking the seven vows and the friends and families blessing the newly wedded couple.

Following are the essential steps of the ceremony. They will be customized to each specific wedding and the overall program will be distributed at the ceremony.

Swagatam Madhuperk- Welcoming Groom & his family The Barat, the singing and dancing procession of the groom and his family, reaches the wedding venue. The bride's family welcomes them with Aarati and sweets, as a symbol of happiness and good tidings to come and escort them to the wedding hall.

Shri Ganesh Prayers & Poonyahvachanam After all are seated, we start the ceremony with prayers to Lord Ganesh to bless this occasion and make the marriage ceremony free of obstacles. We solicit the blessings of elders and our forefathers, and pray for this to be an auspicious day for the marriage ceremony. Vadhu Aagman - Arrival of the Bride Bride is brought to the mandap typically by her maternal uncle, along with bridesmaids, and grooms'men. An antarpat, an auspicious cloth, separates Bride and Groom as a symbol of their separate existence prior to the marriage.

Mangalashtakam & Sankalpa - Mutual Approval After the Mangalmantras are recited, Bride and Groom garland each other, indicating their mutual approval to proceed with the ceremony. The Pandit explains them the objectives of the Vivaah Samskar and then they propose to marry each other and enter the Grahasthashrama as a married couple.

Kannyadaan - Giving Away the Bride In the Brahma Vivaah, the highest form of Hindu marriage, Bride's parents, "give away" the Bride as one of the noblest acts they will perform in their lifetime. Bride and Groom then commit to remain faithful to each other, while pursuing Dharma, Artha and Kama. Bride's mother pours holy water on bride's father's palms, which flows into Groom's and then into Bride's palms, symbolizing the continuity of life, repaying the debt to their forefathers and the passing of the family heritage to the next generation.

Akshatropanam & Panigrahanam (Hastmelap) - Expectations from Married Life The Bride and the Groom communicate their expectations of married life and show their consent by showering rice on each other. Bride requests his support for a healthy and prosperous family life. Groom requests her support in pursuing Dharma and for her cooperation in his various endeavors for a successful life. They accept each other's hands with blessings of Heavenly Gods with a promise to stay together for the rest of their lives, symbolically tying each other's wrists with sacred thread which is called Sutrabandhanam.

Mangalsutrabandhanam - Marriage Commitment to Each Other Groom adorns Bride's neck with the Mangalsutra, a necklace symbolizing good luck, love and friendship. Groom applies kumkum on Bride's forehead, now as a Soubhagyavati. Bride applies chandan tilak on Groom's forehead, now as a Grahastha. With the wedding ring exchange, they commit to support each other, in good times and bad times, in happiness and sorrow, with unending love. They are joined together in a marriage knot by the Groom's sister or mother, as a symbol of their permanent bond

Vivaah Homa - Worshipping the Sacred Fire Vivaah Homa is the start of the Grahasthashrama for the couple. The couple lights the Agni, the holy fire that symbolizes light, power and knowledge, and acts as a witness to the ceremony. Bride and Groom repeat the sacred pledge of marriage and request Agni to be the messenger for their prayers to various Gods, for Santati (children), Sampatti (wealth & prosperity) and Deergharogya (long & healthy lives).

Laja Homa & Agni Pradakshina - Starting the Marriage Journey They circle the sacred fire four times, starting their transition into married life, supported by Bride's brother, as her lifelong supporter. As they circle the fire, Groom poetically describes to Bride their complementary relationship. I am the sky, you are the earth. I am the thought, you are the speech. I am the fire and you are the fuel. I am the song, you are the verse;I am the ocean, you are the shore. I am the strength but you are the beauty. I am the Purush, and you are my Prakriti. Let us live together lovingly & bring up our progeny. Let us lead a joyful life of a hundred years. Please ascend this stone and be as firm throughout our married life. After the Agni Pradakshina, the Bride moves to the left side of the Groom; indicating her transition to the Groom's family.

Saptapadi - Taking the Marriage Vows with Seven Steps The couple takes seven steps together to reiterate their aspirations of their married life.
1. With the first step, we will provide for and support each other.
2. With the second step, we will develop mental, physical & spiritual strength.
3. With the third step, we will share the worldly possessions.
4. With the fourth step, we will acquire knowledge, happiness and peace.
5. With the fifth step, we will raise strong and virtuous children.
6. With the sixth step, we will enjoy the fruits of all seasons.
7. With the seventh step, we will always remain friends and cherish each other.

Ashirvad - Blessings We all offer our blessings to the couple for long and happy lives together. After being declared as Husband and Wife, Groom and Bride bow to all invited guests and leave the mandap as a newly married couple as the guests shower them with flower petals.

Grih Pravesh (Vastu Shanti)

The house we live in is not an object made of brick and mortar but an entity with the "grih purush" or the spirit of the house dwelling in it. A house becomes a home when the residents of the house quell the spirits, purify the environment by reverberation of the mantras and the smoke emanating from the hawan. All the planetary deities are also pacified by Puja. The owner of the house and his family all sit together on an auspicious day and perform the devata Puja. Grah shanti Puja and the hawan to make the house habitable. This ritual is believed to ward off any bad spirits, negative energy that may be present in the house and bring peace, prosperity and good health for the inhabitants. Thus, the "grih pravesh" is an important ritual that one should perform before one enters a new home. This ritual is an extension of "vaastu shashtra", a science that tells us the best way to build a house and the optimizes the use of spaces that are used as residences, offices or factories.

Vastu Shanti: Vastu Shanti is a part of Sthapatya Veda (vedic architecture). According to the Vaastu shastra, energy imbalances in the home are the cause of obstacles in one's progress. Sometimes there are faults in construction to add to any innate problems with the present energy of the environment. This Yagya is highly recommended when moving into a new home. It removes all evil and negativity of the home, improves the health of the residents, increase creativity & inner intelligence, increase the longivity of life, growth in spiritual & material life, increase harmony & stability in family. In commercial place by performing Vastu yagya improves the efficiency of employees, expansion & profit in business. The process involves energizing the actual ground or bhoomi, the foundations, the central pillars and the entrances of the house. It is also highly beneficial if some one is not living in a house according to vastu. It corrects the Vastu dosha when performed periodically. This is done before ground breaking. After purchasing the land the person have to contact their astrologer to take the muhurta for ground breaking . Then on the basis of that muhurta Panditji will do Puja and Yagya.

Griha Pravesh Yagya: It is done after completing the house and on this day special Yagya very briefly will take place and the house owner with family will enter in that home. This Yagya is for pacification of all negative energy and increasing more harmony, wellbeing and overall progress in that home. Many things have to followed during the time of construction. Panditji will guide if some one needs his service. So importantly for having a good house according to Sthapatya Veda is, choosing a proper land, starting every thing with proper muhurta and Yagya, construction as per the vedic rules and performing Vastu Yagya before entering the home first time.

Ganesha Puja

As per Hindu belief, Lord Ganesha is one of the most important deities and in every puja people perform Ganesh Puja. We see in many occasions that before beginning any new or good work they worship or offer prayers to Lord Ganesha.

Antyeshti Sanskaar (Antim Sanskar)

Antyesti or Hindu funeral rites, also referred to as Antim Sanskar, is an important Sanskara, sacrament of Hindu society. Extensive texts of such rites are available, particularly in the Garuda Purana. There is wide inconsistency in theory and practice, and the procedures differ from place to place.

The Antyeshti Sanskaar is the last of the most important 16 sanskaars described in our scriptures. The term "Sanskaar" is often interpreted to mean "rights of passage". This description aptly fits the Antyeshti Sanskaar more than any of the others. Death, to the Hindu, is merely the end of one phase of a long journey - for some - to God realization. The journey of the Atma embodied in a subtle form continues in the hereafter with the advent of death. This journey is described as being, for the sinner, a torturous one, beset with many difficulties, dangers, trials and tribulations. It is with a view to making this passage into the hereafter as easy and as simple as possible that the Hindu performs the Antyeshti Sanskaar for his beloved ones with great faith, love and devotion (shradhaa), so that the atma of that individual will attain a good state (sadgati) in the hereafter.

शुक्लांबरधरं विष्णुं शशि वर्णं चतुर्भुजं ।
प्रसन्न वदनं ध्यायेत सर्व विघ्नोपशान्तये॥
Gajendra Moksha गजेन्द्रमोक्षः or The Liberation of Gajendra is Puranic legend from the 8th Skandha of Bhagavad Purana, one of the most sacred books in Hinduism. It is one of the famous exploits of Lord Vishnu. In this moving episode Lord Vishnu came down to earth to protect Gajendra, the Elephant from the clutches of Makara, the Crocodile and awards him moksha or salvation. Gajendra is then said to have attained the similar four-armed form (Sarupya Mukti) of God and goes to Vaikuntha with Lord Vishnu.

here was once an elephant named Gajendra who used to live in a garden called Rtumata which was created by Varuna. This garden was situated in the beautiful mountains of Trikuta in ancient India. Gajendra ruled over all the other elephants in the herd. On a hot day, he proceeded with his herd to a lake to cool off in its fresh waters. Suddenly a crocodile living in the lake attacked Gajendra and caught him by the leg. Gajendra tried for a long time to escape from the crocodile's clutches. All his family, relatives and friends gathered around to help him, but in vain. The crocodile wouldn't simply let go. When they realised that ‘death’ has come close to Gajendra, they left him alone. He trumpeted in pain and helplessness until he was hoarse. As the struggle was seemingly endless and when the last drop of energy was also sapped, Gajendra called to god Vishnu to save him, holding a lotus up in the air as an offering. It is believed that Gajendra's foot was held by the crocodile for over a thousand of years. Hearing his devotee's call and a prayer, Lord Vishnu rushed to the scene. As Gajendra sighted the Lord coming, he lifted a lotus with his trunk, seeing this lord was pleased and with his Sudharshana Chakra separated the crocodile's head from its body and Gajendra prostrated before the Lord. Vishnu informed Gajendra that he, in one of his previous births, was the celebrated King Indradyumna, a Vishnu devotee, but due to his disrespect to the great Sage Agastya, he was cursed and had to undergo this life. Because Indradyumna was a chosen one, Lord Vishnu had him born as Gajendra and made him realize that there is something called, "Kaivalya" which is beyond Svarga and Urdhva Loka. Indradyumna could attain Moksha finally when he (as Gajendra) left all his pride and doubt and totally surrendered himself to Vishnu. The prayer made by Gajendra on this occasion became a famous hymn in praise of Vishnu called the Gajendra Stuti.
it is believed that this incident has happened in Sonepur. There is a Temple Devoted to Lord Vishnu known as "Hariharnath Mandir" at the banks of Gandaki River. Sonepur hosts one of the world's largest cattle fairs in Asia which starts on Karthik Poornima. Sonepur also has the confluence of four rivers.

Garuda Purana

Garuda Purana (Devanagari गरुड़ पुराण) is one of the eighteen Puranas which are part of the Hindu body of texts known as smriti. It is a Vaishnava Purana and the epic is in form of conversation between Lord Vishnu and Garuda (King of Birds), primarily emphasizing the reason and meaning of Human Life form.
