Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa
Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa the Hindu wedding ceremony, a rite known as ‘Sanskara’,
Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa has many components and it is quite beautiful, specific and filled with chanting, Sanskrit blessings and ritual that is thousands of years old. In India, it can last weeks or days. In the West, it typically is at least two hours long. It is the role of the Hindu Priest or ‘Pandit’ to lead a couple and their families through the sacrament of marriage.
Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa however, as an interfaith minister, I’ve had the good fortune of being called upon by Hindu brides and grooms and couples who love Hindu rituals, to incorporated some of the rites into non-denominational, interfaith or multi-faith ceremonies.
Once you have completed all the above formalities, then your marriage will be solemnized by our Priest of the Arya Samaj Temple by reciting Mantras according to the Vedic Scriptures and Hindu rituals and traditions. After solemnizing the marriage we will provide you with the Legal Arya Samaj Certificate of Marriage.The certificate of marriage provided by Arya Samaj Mandir is fully valid and it entitles you to become Husband –wife legally. After receiving the concerned Certificate no one can harm you legally and cannot challenge your marriage in the court of law. On the basis of this certificate, if you wish, you may later register your marriage with the Office of Registration of Marriage in your area.
Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa
An important aspect of the Hindu ceremony is to light a sacred fire, created from ‘ghee’ (clarified butter) and woolen wicks, to evoke the God, Agni (Fire God), to bear witness to the ceremony. The highlight is ‘Saptapadi’, also called the ‘Seven Steps’. Here in Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa, traditionally the bride’s sari is tied to the groom’s kurta, or a sari shawl might be draped from his shoulder to her sari. He leads, her pinky linked with his pinky, in seven steps around the fire, as the priest chants the seven blessings or vows for a strong union. With each step, they throw small bits of puffed rice into the fire, representing prosperity in their new life together. Arya Samaj Mandir Etawa
