     ಮದುವೆ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬ ಹೆಣ್ಣು /ಗಂಡಿನ ಜೀವನದಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಸುಂದರವಾದ ಅಧ್ಯಾಯ.ಮೂರುಗಂಟು ಬೆಸೆದು ಏಳುಹೆಜ್ಜೆಯ ನೀಡುವ ಸಮಯ

    ಅವನ /ಅವಳ ಕಲ್ಪನೆಯ ಬಾಳಸಂಗಾತಿಗೆ ಕಾಯ,ವಾಚ,ಮನಸಾ ಇವತ್ತಿನಿಂದ ನಾನು ಸಂಪೂಣ೯ವಾಗಿ ನಿನ್ನವಳು /ನಿನ್ನವನು ನಿನ್ನ ಜೀವನದ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ಷಣ ಕೈ ಹಿಡಿದು ಜೊತೆಯಾಗಿ ನಡೆಯುವೆ ಎಂದು ಪ್ರಮಾಣ ಮಾಡುವ ಸುಮಧುರ ಘಳಿಗೆ.

    ಈ ಸಂಭ್ರಮಕ್ಕೆ ನೀವು ಸಾಕ್ಷಿಯಾಗುವ ಮುನ್ನ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಯೋಚಿಸಿ.

    ಬಾಳ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯ ಆಯ್ಕೆ : ನಿಮ್ಮ ಬಾಳ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯಾಗಬಲ್ಲವರು, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಭಾವನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಸ್ಪಂದಿಸುವರು.ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮನಸ್ಥಿತಿಯನ್ನು ಅರಿಯಬಲ್ಲರು.ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಗೌರವ ಹೊಂದಿರುವರು,ನಿಮ್ಮ ಭವಿಷ್ಯದ ಕನಸಿನ ಹಕ್ಕಿಗೆ ರೆಕ್ಕೆಯಾಗಬಲ್ಲರು, ಜೀವನವೀಡಿ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಬೇಕು-ಬೇಡಗಳನ್ನು ಅಥೈ೯ಸಿಕೊಂಡು ನಿಮ್ಮೊಡನೆ ಹೊಂದಿಕೊಂಡು ಬದುಕಬಲ್ಲರು ಜೀವನಪೂತಿ೯ ಅವರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಸುಖ,ಸಂತೋಷ,ನೆಮ್ಮದಿಯಿಂದ ಬದುಕಬಲ್ಲೆ ಎಂದಾದರೆ ಮುಂದುವರೆಯಿರಿ.

    ಕೌಟುಂಬಿಕ ಹಿನ್ನಲೆ : ಮದುವೆ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಎರಡು ಮನಸುಗಳ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಎರಡು ಮನೆತನಗಳಿಗೆ ಸಂಬಂಧಿಸಿದವಿಷಯ ಆಗಿರುವುದರಿಂದ ಪರಸ್ಪರ ಇಬ್ಬರು ತಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಿಳಿಯುವುದು ಅಗತ್ಯವಾಗಿದೆ. ಅವರ ಹಿನ್ನಲೆ, ಆಥಿ೯ಕ ಸ್ಥಿತಿ, ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಹೊಂದಾಣಿಕೆ,

    ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿ-ಸಂಪ್ರದಾಯ, ಎರಡು ಮನೆಯವರ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯ ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಂಡು ಅನುಮತಿಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಮುಂದುವರೆಯುವುದು ಉತ್ತಮ.

    ಮಾನಸಿಕ ಸಿದ್ಧತೆ : ಮದುವೆಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ನಿಮಗಿರುವ ಸಂದೇಹಗಳನ್ನು ಬಗೆಹರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು,ತೊಂದರೆ-ತೊಡಕುಗಳನ್ನು ನಿವಾರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ನೀವು ಉಳಿದ ಜೀವನದ ಅದ್ಭುತ ಕ್ಷಣಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂಗಾತಿಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಕಳೆಯಲು ಬಯಸುತ್ತೀರಿ ಎಂದಾದರೆ ಹೊಸ ಜೀವದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಹೊಸ ಜೀವನ ಪ್ರಾರಂಭಿಸಲು ಸಂಪೂಣ೯ವಾಗಿ ತಯಾರಾಗಿದ್ದರೆ, ನೀವು ಮುಂದುವರೆಯಬಹುದು.

ಮದುವ..

17, August 2021 01:25:42 PM

  • ನೀವು ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯು ಎಂದಿಗೂ ಸಂತೋಷದಿಂದ ಬದುಕದಿರಬಹುದು ಎಂದು ಊಹಿಸುವುದು ಕಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದರೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಜೀವನವನ್ನು ಇನ್ನೊಬ್ಬ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಒಂದು ಸವಾಲಾಗಿರಬಹುದು, ವಿಶೇಷವಾಗಿ ಸಂಬಂಧಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಮಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಅನುಭವವಿಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೆ. ಮದುವೆಗಳು ಕೆಲಸ, ಬದ್ಧತೆ ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರೀತಿಯನ್ನು ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತವೆ, ಆದರೆ ಅವರಿಗೆ ನಿಜವಾಗಿಯೂ ಸಂತೋಷ ಮತ್ತು ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾಗಲು ಗೌರವವೂ ಬೇಕು.

    ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಮತ್ತು ಗೌರವವನ್ನು ಆಧರಿಸಿದ ವಿವಾಹವು ಕೇವಲ ಸಂಭವಿಸುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಇಬ್ಬರೂ ಸಂಗಾತಿಗಳು ತಮ್ಮ ಪಾಲನ್ನು ಮಾಡಬೇಕು. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮದುವೆ ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾಗಲು ಪ್ರತಿ ದಿನ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಲು ಕೆಲವು ಪ್ರಮುಖ ಕೀಲಿಗಳನ್ನು ಕೆಳಗೆ ನೀಡಲಾಗಿದೆ.

    ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟವಾಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ಆಗಾಗ್ಗೆ ಸಂವಹನ ಮಾಡಿ

    ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಮಾತನಾಡುವುದು ನಿಮ್ಮ ದಾಂಪತ್ಯವನ್ನು ಆರೋಗ್ಯಕರವಾಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾಗಿಡಲು ಒಂದು ಉತ್ತಮ ಮಾರ್ಗವಾಗಿದೆ. ನೀವು ಏನನ್ನು ಅನುಭವಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ ಎಂಬುದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕವಾಗಿರಿ, ಆದರೆ ನೀವು ಸಂವಹನ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ ದಯೆ ಮತ್ತು ಗೌರವದಿಂದಿರಿ. ಉತ್ತಮ ಸಂವಹನದ ಭಾಗವೆಂದರೆ ಉತ್ತಮ ಕೇಳುಗನಾಗಿರುವುದು ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯು ನಿಮ್ಮಿಂದ ಏನನ್ನು ಬಯಸುತ್ತಾರೆ ಮತ್ತು ಏನು ಬೇಕು ಎಂಬುದನ್ನು ಅರ್ಥಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಸಮಯ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು. ಆಗಾಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾತನಾಡುವ ಮೂಲಕ ಸಂವಹನ ಮಾರ್ಗಗಳನ್ನು ತೆರೆದಿಡಿ, ಮತ್ತು ಬಿಲ್ಲುಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಮಕ್ಕಳಂತಹ ವಿಷಯಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾತ್ರವಲ್ಲ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಆಲೋಚನೆಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಭಾವನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ.

    ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಗೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಜೀವನದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವನನ್ನು ಅಥವಾ ಅವಳನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದ್ದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ನೀವು ಕೃತಜ್ಞರಾಗಿರುವಿರಿ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಿ

    ಪರಸ್ಪರ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಬಂಧ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕುಟುಂಬ ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಜೀವನವನ್ನು ಒಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಶಂಸಿಸಿ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿ ಭೋಜನವನ್ನು ಅಡುಗೆ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ, ಮಕ್ಕಳಿಗೆ ಅವರ ಮನೆಕೆಲಸಕ್ಕೆ ಸಹಾಯ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ ಅಥವಾ ಕಿರಾಣಿ ಶಾಪಿಂಗ್ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ ಕೃತಜ್ಞತೆಯನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಿ. ಆ ದಿನ ನೀವು ಮೆಚ್ಚಿದ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ಒಂದು ವಿಷಯವನ್ನು ಒಬ್ಬರಿಗೊಬ್ಬರು ಹೇಳಲು ಪ್ರತಿ ಸಂಜೆ ಕೆಲವು ನಿಮಿಷಗಳನ್ನು ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಇದು ಸಹಾಯ ಮಾಡಬಹುದು.

    ನಿಮ್ಮಿಬ್ಬರಿಗೆ ಜೋಡಿಯಾಗಿ ಸಮಯ ನೀಡಿ

    ಕೆಲಸ ಮತ್ತು ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಗಳೊಂದಿಗೆ, ಪ್ರಣಯದ ಅಂಶವನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಸುಲಭವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಹೊರಗೆ ಹೋಗಲು ಅಥವಾ ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಇರಲು ವಿಶೇಷ ದಿನಾಂಕಗಳನ್ನು ಯೋಜಿಸಿ. ನೀವು ಮಕ್ಕಳನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದ್ದರೆ, ನೀವು ವಿಶ್ರಾಂತಿ, ಮಾತನಾಡುವಾಗ ಮತ್ತು ಪರಸ್ಪರರ ಕಂಪನಿಯನ್ನು ಆನಂದಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವಾಗ ಅವರನ್ನು ಆಟದ ದಿನಾಂಕದಂದು ಕಳುಹಿಸಿ.

    ಕೆಲವು ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಸಮಯಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಯೋಜನೆ ಮಾಡಿ

    ಏಕಾಂಗಿ ಸಮಯವು ಒಂದೆರಡು ಸಮಯದಷ್ಟೇ ಮುಖ್ಯವಾಗಿದೆ. ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬರಿಗೂ ರೀಚಾರ್ಜ್ ಮಾಡಲು, ಯೋಚಿಸಲು ಮತ್ತು ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಹಿತಾಸಕ್ತಿಗಳನ್ನು ಆನಂದಿಸಲು ಸಮಯ ಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ನೀವು ಮದುವೆಯಾದಾಗ ಆ ಸಮಯವು ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗಿ ಕಳೆದುಹೋಗುತ್ತದೆ, ವಿಶೇಷವಾಗಿ ನಿಮಗೆ ಮಕ್ಕಳಿದ್ದರೆ. ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಹೊರಗೆ ಹೋಗಿ, ತರಗತಿ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳಿ, ಅಥವಾ ಸ್ವಯಂಸೇವಕ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಿ, ನೀವು ಏನನ್ನು ಶ್ರೀಮಂತಗೊಳಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ ಎಂದು ಕಂಡುಕೊಳ್ಳಿ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ನೀವು ಮತ್ತೆ ಸೇರಿಕೊಂಡಾಗ, ನೀವು ಒಬ್ಬರನ್ನೊಬ್ಬರು ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಪ್ರಶಂಸಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ.

    ಒಪ್ಪದಿರುವುದು ಸರಿ ಎಂಬುದನ್ನು ಅರ್ಥಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ

    ನೀವು ಎಲ್ಲವನ್ನೂ ಒಪ್ಪುವುದಿಲ್ಲ, ಆದರೆ ಭಿನ್ನಾಭಿಪ್ರಾಯಗಳ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಿ ನ್ಯಾಯಯುತವಾಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ಗೌರವಯುತವಾಗಿರುವುದು ಮುಖ್ಯ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯ ದೃಷ್ಟಿಕೋನವನ್ನು ಆಲಿಸಿ. ಕೋಪಗೊಳ್ಳದಿರಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸಿ ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ತುಂಬಾ ನಿರಾಶೆಗೊಳಿಸಬೇಡಿ. ನಿಮಗೆ ಬೇಕಾದರೆ ದೂರ ಹೋಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ಶಾಂತವಾಗಿರಿ, ನಂತರ ನೀವಿಬ್ಬರೂ ಉತ್ತಮ ಮನಸ್ಸಿನ ಚೌಕಟ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿರುವಾಗ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಯನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೊಮ್ಮೆ ಚರ್ಚಿಸಿ. ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ರಾಜಿ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ ಇದರಿಂದ ನೀವಿಬ್ಬರೂ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಕೊಡಿ.

    ವಿಶ್ವಾಸವನ್ನು ಬೆಳೆಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ

    ಮದುವೆ ಚಿಕಿತ್ಸಕ ಮತ್ತು ಸಂಶೋಧಕ ಜಾನ್ ಗಾಟ್ಮನ್, ತಿರಸ್ಕಾರ, ರಕ್ಷಣಾತ್ಮಕತೆ ಮತ್ತು ಕಲ್ಲು ತೂರಾಟ ಮದುವೆಗೆ ಗಂಭೀರ ಬೆದರಿಕೆ ಎಂದು ಕಂಡುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಈ ವಿನಾಶಕಾರಿ ಚಟುವಟಿಕೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ದಂಪತಿಗಳು ಹೆಚ್ಚು ತೊಡಗಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರೆ, ಅವರು ವಿಚ್ಛೇದನ ಪಡೆಯುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯಿದೆ. ಅವರ ದಶಕಗಳ ಸಂಶೋಧನೆ ಮತ್ತು ದಂಪತಿಗಳೊಂದಿಗೆ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುವುದು ಸಂಗಾತಿಗಳು ಜಗಳವಾಡದೆ ಹೇಗೆ ಹೋರಾಡಬೇಕು ಮತ್ತು ಅವರ ಕ್ರಿಯೆಗಳ ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಯನ್ನು ಹೊತ್ತುಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ ಎಂದು ತೋರಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಜಗಳದ ನಂತರ ಮತ್ತು ಸಂಬಂಧವನ್ನು ಸರಿಪಡಿಸುವ ಪರಸ್ಪರರ ಇಚ್ಛೆಗೆ ಅವರು ಶೀಘ್ರವಾಗಿ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯಿಸುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯಿದೆ.

    ಕ್ಷಮಿಸಲು ಕಲಿಯಿರಿ

    ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ತಪ್ಪುಗಳನ್ನು ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಭಾವನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಘಾಸಿಗೊಳಿಸಬಹುದು ಅಥವಾ ನಿಮಗೆ ಅಸಮಾಧಾನ ಉಂಟುಮಾಡುವಂತಹದ್ದನ್ನು ಮಾಡಬಹುದು ಮತ್ತು ಅದು ನಿಮಗೆ ಕೋಪವನ್ನು ಉಂಟುಮಾಡಬಹುದು. ಆದರೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಭಾವನೆಗಳನ್ನು ನಿಭಾಯಿಸುವುದು ಮುಖ್ಯ, ಅವರನ್ನು ಹೋಗಲು ಬಿಡಿ ಮತ್ತು ಮುಂದುವರಿಯಿರಿ. ಭೂತಕಾಲವನ್ನು ಮುಂದುವರಿಸಬೇಡಿ.

    ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕುಟುಂಬ ಮತ್ತು ನೀವು ಒಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ನಿರ್ಮಿಸಿದ ಜೀವನಕ್ಕೆ ಬದ್ಧರಾಗಿರಲು ಮರೆಯದಿರಿ. ಭಾವನಾತ್ಮಕವಾಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ದೈನಂದಿನ ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪರಸ್ಪರ ಬೆಂಬಲಿಸಿ. ನೀವು, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಗಾತಿ ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಂಬಂಧವು ಕಾಲಾನಂತರದಲ್ಲಿ ಬೆಳೆಯಬಹುದು ಮತ್ತು ಬದಲಾಗಬಹುದು, ಆದರೆ ಈ ವಿಚಾರಗಳು ನಿಮ್ಮ ದಾಂಪತ್ಯವು ವರ್ಷಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾಗಿರಲು ಸಹಾಯ ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ.

October fact..

13, July 2022 02:32:29 PM

  • October is a rather beautiful time of year if you live in the northern hemisphere. It’s the time of year that the color of leaves begins to change into a magnificent array of hues. The world-famous Indian political and spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869. His worldwide renown is attributed to the nonviolent way in which he resisted the colonial British rule of India. October has just one birthstone, but with this dazzling stone who needs another? October’s birthstone is the Opal, which was valued by the Ancient Romans as the most priceless of all. The opal comes in a myriad of striking colors that often seem to swirl together and is a symbol of faithfulness, purity, and hope. October is a pretty fantastic time of the year. Those born in October can be born under one of two very different star signs. If you’re born before October 23rd, then you have the sign of Libra. Those born on October 23rd or later have the sign of Scorpio. Libras are said to value harmony and diplomacy and are said to be both intelligent and kind. Scorpios are quite different, valuing trust and honesty above other things, as well as being quite intense yet imaginative people.

  • “A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.”
    “There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage.”
    “A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” —Dave Meurer
    "When a marriage works, nothing on Earth can take its place."
    "This is what marriage means: helping one another to reach the full status of being persons, responsible beings who do not run away from life." —Paul Tournier
    "Almost no one is foolish enough to imagine that he automatically deserves great success in any field of activity, yet almost everyone believes that he automatically deserves success in marriage." J. Harris
    “Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.” —Sam Levenson
    “To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is ultimate happiness.” —Robert Brault

  • January month: Weddings in India vary according to the region, the religion, the community and the personal preferences of the bride and groom. They are festive occasions in India, and in most cases celebrated with extensive decorations, colors, dresses, music, dance, costumes and rituals that depend on the community, region and religion of the bride and the groom, as well as their preferences.[1] India celebrates about 10 million weddings per year,[2] of which about 80% are Hindu weddings. While there are many festival-related rituals in Hinduism, vivaah (wedding) is the most extensive personal ritual an adult Hindu undertakes in his or her life.[3][4] Typical Hindu families spend significant effort and financial resources to prepare and celebrate weddings. The rituals and processes of a Hindu wedding vary depending on the region of India, local adaptations, resources of the family and preferences of the bride and the groom. Nevertheless, there are a few key rituals common in Hindu weddings – Kanyadaan, Panigrahana, and Saptapadi; these are respectively, gifting away of daughter by the father, voluntarily holding a hand near the fire to signify impending union, and taking seven steps before the fire with each step including a set of mutual vows. After the seventh step and vows of Saptapadi, the couple is legally husband and wife.

  • Mahashivratri, “The Great Night of Shiva” is the most significant event in India’s spiritual calendar.

    The fourteenth day of every lunar month or the day before the new moon is known as Shivratri. Among all the twelve Shivratris that occur in a calendar year, Maha Shivratri, the one that occurs in February-March is of the most spiritual significance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being. This is a day when nature is pushing one towards one’s spiritual peak. It is to make use of this, that in this tradition, we established a certain festival which is nightlong. To allow this natural upsurge of energies to find their way, one of the fundamentals of this nightlong festival is to ensure that you remain awake with your spine vertical throughout the night.

    It is believed that people who perform puja, fast, and offer prayers to Lord Shiva are blessed with good luck. Many people also think that Maha Shivaratri fast reminds devotees that pride, ego and falsehood only lead to downfall. All in all, this is a day when positivity wins over negativity.

Ugadi..

13, July 2022 03:04:17 PM


  • Ugadi is celebrated by decorating the temples with fresh flowers and fresh mango leaves. Most people also decorate their homes and puja rooms with flowers and mango leaves. On Ugadi, New panchanga (Hindu calendar) is worshipped and Bevu-Bella is consumed. Ugadi is also celebrated as the Hindu new year. Ugadi or Yugadi is made using two different words, Yug (era) and Adi (new beginning) which means, Yugadi literally stands for the term new beginnings. The belief behind this is that Lord Brahma created the world on this day and that is why it is celebrated as the first day of the Hindu calendar. Ugadi is a Hindu festival, celebrated in the south Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana. The festival marks the beginning of a new Hindu calendar year and is celebrated on the first day of “Chaitra” month, which falls in the months of March-April as per the Gregorian calendar. The new beginnings mark new hopes, everywhere. Likewise, more marriages everywhere.

Arranged mar..

13, July 2022 03:07:03 PM

  • Arranged marriage is a type of marital union where the bride and groom are primarily selected by individuals other than the couple themselves, particularly by family members such as the parents. In some cultures, a professional matchmaker may be used to find a spouse for a young person.  Arranged marriages serve some functions in the Indian community: (1) help maintain the social satisfaction system in the society; (2) give parents control, over family members; (3) enhance the chances to preserve and continue the ancestral lineage; (4) provides an opportunity to strengthen the family bondage. Arranged marriages provide equal stature, financial stability, cultural identity and the same opinions among partners and families, so, there is very less chance of disputes. The only downside to this is that partners do not know each other nor do they love each other before the marriage; well, most of the times.

  • The Indian subcontinent has historically been home to a wide variety of wedding systems. Some were unique to the region, such as Swayamvara (which was rooted in the historical Vedic religion and had a strong hold in popular culture because it was the procedure used by Rama and Sita). In a swayamvara, the girl's parents broadcast the intent of the girl to marry and invited all interested men to be present in a wedding hall on a specific date and time. 55% of the marriages that occur in the world today are arranged marriages. The rate of arranged marriages in India is 90%. In an arranged marriage, the man is usually 4.5 years older than the woman in the formed relationship The practice of arranged marriages began as a way of uniting and maintaining upper-caste families.   Arranged marriages serve six functions in the Indian community: (1) help maintain the social satisfaction system in the society; (2) give parents control, over family members; (3) enhance the chances to preserve and continue the ancestral lineage; (4) provides an opportunity to strengthen the families.

  • Emerging out of one of the oldest cultures of India, Tamil Brahmin weddings emphasize the celebration of heritage and customs over displays of grandeur. A kaleidoscopic guide to different regional cultures, spanning rituals, customs, fashion and more.

    Wedding Functions

    Panda Kaal Muhurtam
    Once the wedding is finalized, the bride and groom’s families offer their prayers to their deity and seek blessings for a successful marriage and the protection of the couple. Mostly held a day before the wedding, it is attended by close family members and generally held at a temple or their homes. 

     Sumangali Prarthana
    Sumangalis are women who have led happy, fulfilled married lives. Married older relatives and friends of the bride take part in this prayer ceremony and invoke the blessings of their late female ancestors for the bride’s happy married life. The same ritual is performed at the groom’s home to bless the new bride joining their family.

     Vrutham
    Generally held on the morning of the day before the wedding, the Vrutham signifies the groom’s transition from bachelorhood to being a married man. A sacred thread stained yellow with turmeric is tied around his wrist to ward off evil energy. A similar ritual is done for the bride. 

     Nichayathartham
    The formal engagement ceremony in Tamil Weddings sees the groom and his family arriving at the bride’s home with gifts for her such as a saree and jewelry. She is seated and aarti is performed, and the sumangalis (married women) tie grains, betel nuts, turmeric, and coconuts in the pallu of her saree. A similar ritual is done for the groom, where he is presented with special clothes as well. The couple then changes into their new clothes and does the ring ceremony. 

    Gauri Puja
    Once dressed, this ritual is done by the bride to Goddess Gauri, who represents purity and virtue. An idol is placed on a plate with rice and kumkum, and the bride prays and seeks blessings from her for a happy marriage Kashi Yatra
    An ancient custom rooted in history, the Kashi yatra is one of the most delightful rituals of a Tamil wedding. Once the groom’s family reaches the venue, the groom grabs an umbrella, a walking stick, and food to head to Kashi (Benaras) to renounce worldly pleasures and dedicate his life to god. As everyone looks on, the father of the bride then convinces him to choose a life of domestic bliss instead of being a hermit and promises to give his daughter’s hand to him. 

    Pada Puja
    The groom arrives at the mandap, where the father of the bride washes his feet with holy water, sandalwood, milk and kumkum. 

    Kanyadaanam
    A ritual common to every culture in the world, the Kanyadaanam marks the official giving away ceremony of the bride by her parents to the groom. He is made to sit on the floor where his feet are washed by the bride’s father, who sits opposite him with the bride on his lap. He supports her hands holding a coconut which is then offered to the groom, as her mother pours holy water over it. With this gesture, they officially hand over their daughter for life, asking him to cherish her and protect her. The bride and groom’s hands are tied with a sacred thread to seal their union. 

    Muhurtham
    After the Kanyadaanam, the groom’s parents gift the bride a nine-yard silk saree to welcome her into their family, which is draped around her shoulders while the groom applies sindoor on her hair parting. The bride then changes into the new saree and returns for a few more rituals. The thaali (South Indian equivalent of mangal sutra) is then blessed by the priest and tied around her neck by the groom. The first two knots of the Thaali are put in by the groom, while the third and the final one are put in by the groom’s sister. 

    Saptapadi
    The bride and the groom hold hands and take seven steps around the holy fire while the priest chants Vedic mantras in Saptapadi, one of the most important rituals in a Hindu marriage. The groom then holds the bride’s left toe as she steps over a grindstone, symbolizing the solidity of their union.

  • The Telugu wedding ceremony is the traditional wedding ceremony of the Telugu people in India and those Telugu people who reside in other parts of the world. Telugu Weddings are now a mix of classic events like Pellikuturu, Pellikoduku, Mangala Snanam, etc., and modern introductions like Mehndi and Sangeet.

    Telugu Wedding ceremonies are vibrant, detailed & colorful festivities full of meaning and tradition. Like all Hindu wedding ceremonies, the events aim to culminate with the physical, spiritual, and emotional union of the couple. There is also a heavy emphasis on the new bond between the two families and the celebration of their journey together.

    NICHAYATHARTHAM

    This ceremony is performed to officially declare that the bride and groom are going to be married. An auspicious date & time (Muhurtham) for the wedding is decided. After this, the couple exchanges the rings and the mother-in-law of the bride gives jewelry, clothes and silverware to the bride as blessings.

    PELLIKUTURU

    Pellikuturu's ceremony takes place one or two days before the wedding day at the bride’s place. In this ritual, naluga (paste of flour and turmeric) with aromatic oils is smeared on the body of the bride which is followed by a holy bath with turmeric water to cleanse the body and mind before the sacred ritual of becoming one (the wedding).

    PELLIKODUKU

    Pellikoduku ceremony takes place one or two days before the wedding day at the groom’s house separately. In this ritual, naluga (paste of flour and turmeric) with aromatic oils is smeared on the body of the groom which is followed by a holy bath with turmeric water to cleanse the body and mind before the sacred ritual of becoming one (the wedding).

    MANGALA SNANAM

    (‘Mangala’ means holy, ‘Snanam’ means bath). This ceremony takes place on the morning of the main wedding when the groom and the bride are taken for ceremonial baths. An auspicious time is decided for the ceremony. After the bath is over, the bride and the groom are dressed in the first set of wedding and can now carry out the other rituals.

    SNATHAKAM

    In the olden days, brahmin boys were sent away to sages to learn the scriptures. When they returned, they had to perform Snathakam, which signified that their education had ended and that they can now take on more responsibilities like starting their family.

    KASHI YATRA

    Kashi Yatra is a fun ritual where the groom pretends to leave for Kashi to renounce worldly pleasure, the bride’s brother stops him and convinces him to marry his sister. When the groom agrees to marry, he is welcomed by the bride’s parents.

    GANESH POOJA

    Ganesh Pooja is the first thing that takes place in the mandap. The groom has to take part in the same. This pooja is performed so that the wedding goes well without any hindrances as well as for a happy and prosperous married life.

    GAURI POOJA

    Meanwhile, the bride offers prayers to Goddess Gauri who is the symbol of fertility, the triumph of good over evil, and motherhood and the would-be bride seeks her blessings.

    BRIDE’S ENTRY

    The bride is accompanied by her parents and family to the venue. In some traditions, the bride is seated in a straw basket and is carried to the mandapam by her maternal uncle. Until the Jeelakara Bellam ritual is complete, the bride and groom are not supposed to look at each other hence a curtain is placed between them called Terasala (‘tera’ means screen)

    KANYADAAN, KANYADANAM AND PANIGRAHANAM

    This ritual is performed by the bride’s parents where after washing the groom’s feet, they offer their daughter’s hand to the groom. The groom promises to love, respect and protect his bride for life.

    JELLAKARA-BELLAM

    ‘Jeelakara’ means Cumin and ‘Bellam’ means Jaggery in Telugu. The ritual starts by placing Cumin and Jaggery paste on the hands of the couple. The time for this ceremony is very vital and takes place at the most auspicious hour. At the exact muhurtham, the couple places this paste on each other’s heads, moving their hands above the curtain. This ritual indicates that the couple will stick together through the bitter and sweet phases of life.

    MANGALSUTRAM

    After the curtain between the couple is removed, the groom ties the sacred yellow thread smeared with Haldi around the bride’s neck with three knots. This signifies their mental, physical and spiritual union with each other.

    TALAMBRALU

    This is the most fun part of the wedding. The pandit chants mantras and the bride and the groom shower each other’s heads with talambralu (pearls, thermocol balls, or rice colored by turmeric paste).

    PRADHANAM

    In a pot full of milk and rose petals, a gold ring is dropped and brought to the mandap. The bride and the groom put their arms into it to see who picks the ring first. It is a very exciting game for the ones watching the bride and the groom struggle and fight for the ring humorously.

    KANYADAAN AKSHATA

    After Talambralu, the bride and groom exchange garlands which signify the bride and groom accepting each other as partners. Here the couple exchanges flower garlands as their friends and relatives shower flowers and turmeric-colored rice on the couple.

    SAPTAPADI AND STHAALIPAAKAM

    In this ritual, the couple takes seven rounds around the holy fire while taking their marriage vows. One end of the groom’s dhoti is tied in a knot to one end of the bride’s saree, and they walk together around the Homam (fire) seven times. The couple takes promises of togetherness with every round around the homam.

    After this, the groom puts a silver toe ring on the bride’s toe.

    ARUNDHATI NAKSHATRAM

    In this ritual, the couple is taken out of the Mandapam by the priest to spot the Arundhati and Vasistha nakshatram (star) in the sky. The groom points out the stars to his bride. Arundhati and Vasistha represent an ideal couple hence they are shown the couple as an example.

  • Weddings in the state of Karnataka are mostly simple affairs, focused mainly on traditional rituals and less pomp and show. Kannadigas prefer to adhere to age-old traditions when it comes to weddings. The rituals vary slightly in different regions and among various communities of Karnataka, but the basic structure of the entire event remains the same. Kannada weddings are relatively short and share many rituals with neighboring states like Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. Kannada weddings generally take place during the daytime and are comparatively short 1-2 days events. Given below are the wedding rituals of a Kannada wedding.

    Pre-Wedding Rituals:

    Nischitartha

     Parents of the groom visit the bride’s place and offer her a saree, blouse piece, coconut and sweets. The bride’s parents also visit the groom’s house to gift him dhoti, coconut, fruits and sweets. The date of the marriage is generally decided by the priest during this event.

    Naandi

     A few days before the wedding, the Naandi ceremony is performed in both the bride and groom’s places. It is a puja performed by the family priest to ensure that the wedding ceremony goes without any hitches or problems. A traditional copper pot or Kalash filled with holy water is placed with a coconut on top, and this marks the beginning of the wedding celebrations. 

     Kaashi Yaatre 

    This is a fun-filled ritual when the groom pretends to get angry that no one is searching for a suitable bride for him. He threatens his family that he will set out for a pilgrimage to Kashi carrying a walking stick, a dhoti, an umbrella, a fan, and edibles like a coconut along with some rice. As he is about to leave the house, the groom’s maternal uncle stops him and convinces him not to leave and puts forward the girl that had been chosen for him.  The groom relents hearing this and decides to come back home to get married to his bride. The groom dresses up in a white veshti or dhoti worn in typical south Indian style around the waist. The wedding attire of the bride is highly ornamental. She wears a traditional 9 yards long Naavari Saree. They wear green glass bangles along with the saree and are similar to Maharashtrian brides in this respect.  

    Var Puja 

    In Hindu traditions, the groom is considered to be the reincarnation of Lord Vishnu. In that respect, he is worshipped by the bride’s party. He is accompanied to the wedding mandap by his future father-in-law and is asked to a seat of prominence. His feet are then washed by the bride’s father and a puja is performed in his honor. He is also presented with a set of silk dhoti and scarf known as pitambar. He is to take part in the wedding rituals wearing the clothes presented to him by the bride’s parents. 

    Dhara Muhurtha 

    The bride’s right hand is placed on the groom’s right hand and coconut along with a betel leaf is placed on top of the joined hands. The bride’s parents shower their blessings and approval of this union by pouring holy water, preferably from the River Ganges known as dhara on top of the couple’s joined hands.

    Saptapadi 

    A nuptial knot is tied between the ends of the bride and groom’s attires signifying an unfailing bond established between two souls. The couple then circumambulates the sacred fire seven times; this ritual is termed Saptapadi. Through these circumambulations, the bride follows the groom and together they utter the seven sacred vows of marriage. After the Saptapadi the couple sits down, with the bride sitting on the groom’s left, and the groom ties the mangalasutra around the bride’s neck assisted by five Sumangalis or married women. This officially concludes the wedding, and the couple gets up and goes over to seek blessings from the elders of both families.

  • An inviting food jugalbandhi with pristine and polished banana leaves, the crackling Dolby effect of the very pompous nagaswarams, festoons overhead of mango leaves that never fade, Mamas and Maamis clad in Panchakachams and Madisars scurrying around like beautiful Gandharvas... VANTHANAM. The bride’s parents wait outside the marriage hall with coconuts, flowers, and Thamboola with two conical structures called ‘Paruppu Thengai Urundai” (made of Dhal, jaggery, coconut) to receive the groom and his family for the wedding.VIRATHAM

    The main part of the wedding starts with ‘Viratham’.

    This ceremony is performed by both families to invoke their family deities and ancestors. A ‘Kappu’ is tied around the wrists of both the bride and the groom, and the yellow thread should not be untied until the wedding is over. The Kaapu is supposed to ward off evil spirits by acting as protective armor for both the bride and the groom.

    From hereon, the groom prepares himself for his new phase of life as a ‘Grihastha’.

    JAANAVASAM

    Or the ‘Maapilai Azhaippu’. A pooja ceremony happens at a temple nearby, and then the groom is taken on a procession to the mantapa to accept the bride. The procession these days is in a car, but in the olden days, the procession used to be (sometimes) on elephants (gasp). The Januvasam is to ‘show’ the groom to the public, and allow them to voice their objections if any, to the marriage.

    NICHAYATHARTHAM

    Or the engagement ceremony. Once the groom reaches the venue, a formal engagement ceremony takes place. A Ganapathi Pooja is performed, and a final formal agreement is made between the bride’s and the groom’s family.

    KASI YATRA

    After the recitation of Vedic verses, the groom, all well clad in Panchakancham, starts his journey towards Kasi (Varanasi) to expand his knowledge of Brahman. The groom sets off towards the gate, with his slippers, a bamboo fan, and an umbrella. The bride’s father stops him on the way, convinces him of the importance of being a ‘Grihastha’, and also promises to give him his daughter as his companion to face the trials and tribulations in life.

    EXCHANGE OF GARLANDS / MAALAI MATRUTHAL

    The Maternal uncles lift the Bride and the Groom respectively to their shoulder levels enabling for easy exchange of garlands. While thrice they exchange, fun is also added making garlanding one another difficult. The couple is then made to sit in an oonjal (swing), lots of songs are sung, and the bride and the groom are served with paalikai (a mixture of banana, milk and sugar) by women from both families. The women also prepare rice balls with turmeric, and circle them around the couple. The rice balls are thrown in all four directions to ward off evil spirits. The groom is then asked to hold the right hand of the bride and lead her to the marriage dais.KANYATHANAM The bride is made to wear the Madisar or the ‘Koorai Pudavai’ and is made to sit on her father’s lap facing eastward. The groom faces westward and ties the mangalyam around the neck of the bride. “Getti melam”, the bride’s uncle would say and this signals the nagaswaram and thavil artists to speed their tempo up. A total of 3 knots are tied around the bride’s neck. The first knot tied by the husband formalizes their union, and the second and the third knots are tied by the groom’s sister to symbolize the welcoming of the bride into her family. Sapthapadhi The bride and the groom now hold hands and pray for their eternal happiness. The groom also helps the bride to take seven steps around the sacred fire, and this ritual is called the ‘sapthapathi’. This is the most important part of the marriage ceremony, and only after the sapthapathi are the bride and groom ‘officially’ married.

  • A typical Lingayat community wedding starts with an engagement ceremony and ends with a reception and the in-betweens are all about meaningful ceremonies.

    The traditional engagement ceremony for this community sees the bride partaking in coconuts, sweets and a traditional wedding ceremony saree from the groom’s family.

    More conservative Veer Shaivites or Lingayats are strict about the matching of horoscopes. If the horoscopes predict a fateful union — a mere formality — the exchange of gifts proceeds. Horoscope matches, as done with the Lingayat community, are also seen in many other traditional wedding ceremonies - from the Marathi wedding ceremonies to the Tamil wedding rituals.

    The groom doesn’t leave empty-handed, having accepted sweets and a wedding dhoti from the bride’s side of the family and the wedding date is fixed. No Lingayat community wedding ceremony is complete without a Pooja to have a smooth celebration. The Nandi Pooja, as it is called, is an event for the bride and groom to show their devotion to each other and Lord Shiva, the Lingayat community’s deity. The Kashi Yatra is a time for relatives and friends of the couple to regale themselves. It's role-playing time for the Lingayat community groom — he pretends that he has not found a suitable bride and will take a pilgrimage to Kashi. The bride’s uncle then shows a photograph of her to the groom, convincing him to stay back. Filled with jokes, the ceremony is nevertheless marked by traditional South Indian food and is a kick-off for the actual marriage ceremony. His attire is usually silk — a saree for the bride and a Veshti and kurta for the groom and adorned with traditional jewelry. The groom awaits the bride at the mandap and after the bride, escorted by her uncle arrives - the actual wedding takes place. Separated by a white cloth, the couple is anxious to take a peek at each other. The couple exchange holy ritual marriage vows and the groom’s Angavastram is tied to the bride’s saree. The couple circles the holy ritual fire seven times reciting the seven special sacred mantras. The groom then holds a Lingayat Mangalsutra around the bride’s neck, which is tied by five married women themselves adorned with Mangalsutra. Imagine the feeling of happiness and anticipation while both the bride and groom wait to lay their eyes on each other! The guests feast after a tiresome and eventful wedding ceremony, and it’s time for the bride to take leave. This is called the Kanyadaan; it is marked by the father of the bride, who places the bride’s right hand in the groom’s right hand. Shedding tears, it’s time for the emotional bride to take flight from her parent’s abode.

  • Like most Indian weddings, the Coorg wedding, or Mangala as it is called in the Kodava language, is a fun-filled, colorful affair. It is a joyous celebration with much feasting and dancing, eagerly awaited by relatives and friends. It is also an occasion to meet, exchange news and gossip and look for matches for prospective brides and grooms; an occasion that allows women an opportunity to show off their saris and jewelry. Prayers are offered to ancestors at the sacred lamp and the wedding ceremony is guided by elders whose blessings are sought. These simple but meaningful acts and some unusual rituals make the Coorg wedding rather unique.

    The traditional Coorg wedding these days is a two-day affair that sometimes spills over to the early hours of the third morning (if the dancers at the Ganga puja dance through the night!). The day preceding the wedding is called the Uur kuuduva or Karik muripa day when preparations are made for the wedding day. The important ceremonies on the wedding day are the Muurtha - when the bride and groom are blessed by all those assembled, the Sammanda kodupa - when the bride is given rights in her husband’s house and the Ganga puja - when the bride is welcomed and accepted as a member of the groom’s family. In the past, the Karik muripa and Muurtha ceremonies were celebrated separately and concurrently for the bride and the groom in their respective ainmanes (ancestral houses of okkas or patrilineal clans) where they were blessed by their relatives and friends. Such a muurtha that is held separately for the bride or the groom is colloquially called a ‘single’ muurtha. The groom would then go to his bride’s house in a procession with a small group of his relatives and friends for the dampathi muurtha (common or ‘double’ muurtha for the bride and groom together) after which the bride was given the Sammanda rights. After that, the groom would bring his bride to his home in a procession, and the Ganga puja would be held there. This practice is followed occasionally even today.

  • Rituals Before the Wedding

    DEVARA SAMARADHANE: The marriage rituals are initiated through “ Punyaha Vachana” which includes pujas conducted to seek the blessings of various deities like Ganapathi, Varuna, Navagraha, and the family deity (Kula Devata). The “Naandi” deity who represents the family’s ancestors, is worshipped to seek their blessings. 

    HOOVILYA: The Mother Goddess is invoked through girls and women and her blessings are sought by propitiating them with food, gifts, and other accessories. 

    VARAPOOJE: Varapooje is usually performed a day before the wedding ceremony to welcome the bridegroom and his family As the Bridegroom arrives at the venue of the wedding with his family, friends, and the priest, they are welcomed by sumangalis by the Vedic rituals.  Wedding invitations are exchanged; the details of the auspicious Lagna and muhurtham in which the bride will be given away are read out. Then, clothes, silverware, and other gifts are exchanged.

    RITUALS CONDUCTED ON THE WEDDING DAY

    SAMAVARTANE: The bridegroom performs the samavartane fire ritual (homa)to mark his entry into grihastha ashrama from brahmacharya. He seeks the blessings of Prajapati, Pavana, Agni, and Surya. Henceforth he is called a snathaka and will perform his duties to devas, Pitris, and society along with his wife.

    GAURI POOJE: While the Bridegroom performs the Samavartana Homa and is taken for Kashi Yatra, the Bride performs “Gowri Pooja” under the guidance of elderly women according to tradition. Parvati, Shiva’s consort, obtained Shiva after long and arduous Tapas. The bride prays to the Divine Mother in her avatar as Gauri so that she may remain devoted to her husband and undaunted by trials and tribulations. 

    KASHI YATRE: In the meantime, the groom sets off to Kashi for higher studies. So the bride’s parents entreat him to stay back and pursue a righteous life, earn wealth and fulfill his material desires within the confines of wedlock and in conjunction with an able partner. The groom agrees and accepts madhuparka from the girl’s parents and returns to the venue. 

    ANTRAPATA: The groom awaits the bride's arrival at the flower-bedecked mantapa, a sanctified space. The two priests hold up a white cloth as a barrier so that he may not see his approaching bride. The bride is escorted to the mantapa by her maternal uncle amidst Mangala vaadya, chanting of Lakshmi Stotra, and stands facing the East. At the designated auspicious moment, the curtain is lowered, and the bride and groom cast their eyes on each other and put cumin seeds and jaggery on each other. 

    KANKANA BANDHANA: Brahmins well versed in the Vedas chant certain mantras as they pass a ball of holy thread four to five times among themselves to create a sacred circle around the bride and groom. The essence of the mantras permeates the thread. This is then tied around the bride and groom's wrists to protect them and they are now considered the embodiment of Lakshmi and Narayana.

    AKSHATAROPANA: The bride and groom sit facing each other, reciting mantras, and pouring handfuls of sanctified rice (moistened with a little ghee and milk) on each other’s heads. Rice symbolizes prosperity so that their married life has an abundance of yagna- dharma, and Keerthi (fame).

    MANGALYA DHARANE: Maangalya is a gold pendant, representing Mahalakshmi, tied in a yellow thread. It is an auspicious symbol for a married woman. The maangalya is duly blessed by all the elders present and at the designated auspicious muhurtham, the groom ties it around the bride's neck.

    AKSHATAROPANA: The bride and groom sit facing each other, reciting mantras, and pouring handfuls of sanctified rice (moistened with a little ghee and milk) on each other’s heads. Rice symbolizes prosperity so that their married life has an abundance of yagna- dharma, and Keerthi (fame). 

    PANIGRAHANA: The groom now holds the bride’s hand for the first time and assumes responsibility for her welfare. The groom's upper garment and the girl's saree are knotted together to indicate an eternity together.

    SAPTHAPADI: The groom holds his bride's hand and they walk around the sacred fire seven times making seven promises to each other with Agni as the witness. (Good health, strengthen physical, mental and spiritual powers, prosperity, happiness and harmony, good children, longevity in relationship, true and loyal to each other.) 

    GRUHA PRAVESHA: Finally, the bride leaves for her husband’s house to become part of a new family. Her new home is decorated with flowers and lights. Upon the threshold stands a container filled with rice and jaggery. The bride represents Mahalakshmi bringing joy, peace, and plenty with her to her new home.

  • Reddy's are a community located and rooted in the Andhra Pradesh state of India. The traditional Reddy marriage represents the South Indian culture and some important ceremonies. The reddy marriage signifies spirituality, peace, and love and the ceremonies are quite interestingly different from other weddings. The first step is to match the horoscopes and fix the wedding date if the couple is identified as a perfect match for each other. 

    Patrik :

    This is the very first ceremony or ritual which is performed at the Reddy wedding.  This is the ceremony that takes place when two families finalize the marriage after the horoscopes and stars of the couple match. The marriage date and the contact are written on the Patrika and are placed on a yellow piece of cloth. Betel nuts, turmeric, and betel leaves are also placed keeping in mind the tradition. Priests chant mantras to complete this ceremony when the parents of the couple exchange the Patrika.

    Nisachaitharthum :

    The engagement ceremony in Reddy weddings is known as Nisachaitharthum. This is the first bond or relation between the bride and groom where they legally get engaged while exchanging rings. The beautiful brass lamp also known as ‘Nila villaku is lit and the rings are exchanged. The elders of both families shower blessings on the bride and the groom.

    Vara puja :

    Vara puja is the welcome of the groom and his family to the wedding venue. This is a custom in which, the groom and his family are welcomed with gifts, new clothes, and different food dishes. The bridegrooms are honored in this ceremony in which the bride’s father washes the groom’s feet with pious milk and wipes them off.

    Paindlipilla or haldi paspu :

    Popularly known as Haldi in different wedding ceremonies, this is a colorful and fun-filled ceremony of Reddy's wedding. This ceremony has amazing importance in making the bride shine! During this ceremony, the family members of the bride apply turmeric paste on the bride’s body. Soon after the ceremony, the bride goes for a purification bath. This ceremony and application of multi-benefit turmeric will make the bride glow throughout the wedding ceremonies!

    Vivaaham :

    This ceremony is the welcome and entry of the groom and the commencement of the wedding. It is such an eye catchy and melodious feel when the bride and groom enter the Kalyana mandapa (wedding hall). The venue is decorated with beautiful flowers and decor items and while the melodious tunes of nadaswarams and thayli are played, the bridegroom and family enter the venue. The bride’s family welcomes the groom’s family while washing his feet and performing aarti.
    At the entrance of the mandapa, young girls stand with flowers, oil lamps, turmeric, and rice. The groom sits on the right side of the mandapa and the bride settles on the left side. When the bride and groom enter the mandap, the wedding starts. The priest chants mantras and people settle down to witness this beautiful ceremony.

    Muhurtham :

    This is a beautiful ritual when the groom ties a thali to the bride’s neck. Thali is a traditional necklace of yellow thread decorated with a golden pendant. The bride and groom stand facing each other and perform this ritual. This ritual is performed on the correct muhurtham or time decided by the astrologer or priest. ‘Muhurtham’ means the correct time to perform a ritual which has great significance during weddings. When the groom ties the thali, the loud noise of dhol (drums) and cheers of people are heard.

    Kanyaadaanam :

    Kanyaadaanam means daan or donation of the daughter. This is a very emotional and beautiful ritual in which, the bride’s father gives away her daughter to the groom. This is an exciting ceremony in which, the bride’s uncle brings the bride in a bamboo basket to the mandap. The bride and groom are not allowed to see each other and thus, are separated by a curtain in between. The groom thrice assures the father of the bride that he will take care of his daughter and will consider her the better half. In any situation, he will be by her side, and with this promise; the bride’s father gives his daughter to the groom.

    Sapthapadi :

    This ritual leads to the 7 pheras or rounds, the bride and groom take a round of fire to complete the marriage. The 7 rounds have high importance in Reddy marriages where the groom and bride hold hands and move around the fire while making seven rounds. This ceremony signifies that the bride and groom will live forever and will hold hands forever in health and sickness.

    Sthalipaakam :

    In this ceremony, the feet and fingers of the bride are loaded with silver toe rings. When the groom bends down and puts the toe rings, it is signified that he accepts the bride as her wife forever. For preventing evil eyes, the bride also wears a black thread in hand. This is when the wedding ceremony gets completed.
