Hindu Wedding Cards

Hindu Wedding Cards

Vedic Astrology also called as Jyotish Shastra in India is basically a science which studies motions and relative positions of planets, stars, sun and moon interpreted in terms of human behavior, their characteristics and activities. It helps an individual to develop a spiritual understanding, knowing oneself more deeply and on what timing, important actions of life are to be taken.

There are misconceptions related to Vedic Literature that it promotes fatalism. But it is not at all true; it does not predict our future but recognizes a person’s behavioral pattern and how their karmas affect them. Looking at an increasing divorce rate, many couples are worried about their marriage life. This is where the need to seek the help of Vedic Astrologer is felt. It not only helps to choose a right life partner but also in case of married couple, it helps them to have a better understanding of how a relationship works. Hindus prefer to consult an astrologer or a Pundit before the marriage and it is he who suggests all the things and bring forth the best date and time of the marriage as per the compatibility between the to-be bride and the to-be groom. It is on his suggestion that Hindu wedding cards are designed and printed specially if needed and it is he who suggests various prayers or remedies if there is some problem with the compatibility.

One’s marriage life, can be affected if their planets don’t favor them. Like it is believed that if a boy or a girl has a mangal dosh, then he/ she should only marry a person having a mangal dosh. There are also other planets whose wrong placement can create chaos in one’s life. Like the sun, the moon, rahu, ketu, Saturn and mars (mangala).

Consulting about the marriage compatibility from does not mean that if you work upon the advice of the astrologer, your marriage life will not have to go through tough situations or you will get a perfect life partner. But yes!! Your astrologer will give you certain mantra’s to recite or to perform rituals or he may also give you stones or gems to wear which will surely help you deal with unfavorable situations. Some also suggest certain mantra to be printed on the Hindu wedding cards for the marriage.

Again only mantras, rituals and gems won’t help; there should always be your hard work in making marriage a successful institution. It will teach you to be adjustable and have a positive approach towards your life partner. In case if any astrologer guarantees you that all your problems will come to an end only the methods they suggest, one should immediately change the astrologer and search for someone who gives you genuine advice. Vedic Astrologers are as ordinary as we are. It’s just that they have studied the Vedic science and can provide you with guidance. If any astrologer claims to possess some magical powers, then understand that he is a fraud.

The ancient Vedic techniques which were followed in the generation where kings ruled cannot be applied in this modern generation. In the same way, even the rules of marriage changes with the change in time. And what will printing certain mantras on the hindu wedding card will do. The stars and other planets are just energies, and an astrologer can only show you some methods to make your marriage fruitful. Just like how doctor can only diagnose the problem and give medicines and other ways of curing it. It is mainly our karma which decides our fortune. As rightly said, ” As you sow, so shall you reap.”

Wedding Cards

There are innumerable reasons, why Indian marriages are more appealing than other weddings. An Indian Wedding is full of customs, rituals and traditions which are followed by people blindly without even knowing them. Every custom or ritual has its own meaning. Right from wedding invitations to the Bidai ceremony, every custom, every tradition has a meaning of its own. These meanings are derived from our ancestors and the generation today is modifying these traditions according to their own convenience.

There is lot of spice in the customs of Indian wedding. Let us have a look at some of the customs. The first is the wedding invitations. The first wedding card is sent to the Gods and Goddesses summoning them to bless the couple. Mandap which is a decorated canopy supported by four pillars under which bride and groom are made to sit, to perform all the rituals in front of sacred fire. Mandap is decorated with bright and lively colors which signifies the radiance that marriage is going to bring in their life.

Mehendi: A day prior to the wedding, the bride and other female members of the family put heena on their hands, commonly called mehendi with different designs and patterns. The bride gets the best women to put mehandi on her palm, hands and legs and it is the best design of the mehandi that is put on her. The best part about this custom is both the bride and groom write their partner’s name in their hand in hidden manner. They are asked to search their respective names on their partner’s hand and whosoever searches it first is believed to be more dominating. It has been believed since the time the custom of mehndi originated that the darker the color of mehndi in one’s hand the more is the love for you in your partner’s heart.

The baraat is all about dancing as much as you can. In baraat, the dulha or the groom rides on a white lady horse and all the baraati’s i.e all the friends and relatives dance with full energy on the sound of the drum. T Milni, the English meaning of which means merger. Once the baraat reaches at the venue, the bride’s family greets the guests with garlands, flowers and gifts. Then similar way of greeting is done by the groom’s family. There is also a Shoe Hiding Game. When the bride and Groom sit for pheras, they both remove their footwear’s before sitting in the mandap. As per the tradition, the bride’s sisters or friends will hide the shoes of groom and when the pheras are over, groom has to fulfill the demands of them in return for shoes.

All these wedding traditions have a meaning of their own and all these invite participation of both the families and their relatives and friends. With the help of wedding invitation, the bride and the groom’s family invites their guests and thus the wedding becomes a tool of social bonding. Thus, the customs are not just customs but these have an in depth meaning as well.

For centuries India is known for its diverse and rich cultural heritage. In spite of its diverse culture, one thing that is very common amongst all Hindu’s is the way they perform their marriages. Obviously leaving apart some minor differences depending on the particular caste or community, Seven Pheras or Vows are never skipped by any Hindu marriage. This is part of the traditional Hindu marriage and it is only after the seven rounds of fire that the bride and the groom are considered to be married.

There are times when parents or relatives do not accept love marriages: at that time the bride and the groom prefer neglecting other traditions and just taking seven pheras by revolving around the sacred fire in front of the holy priest who recites holy mantras in the temple, which means that the God is the only witness of their marriage.

Seven pheras symbolizes seven Vows made by both bride and groom, promising to stay together in good and bad times and making their marriage a successful institution. It is not just seven rounds, these are the rounds that signify that now on the bride and the groom need to walk together and face all the difficulties together and celebrate the happiness together. The seven rounds also signifies their bond for the next seven births. It is this eternal bon that is reflected in the wedding invitations and it is oftentimes written that the bride and the groom will be uniting for age with the marriage.

Let us have a detailed look, on what each Vow taken by the bride and groom means and how does it binds two people into one entity:

1st Vow:
Groom: I promise you and our children to provide with wealth and happiness for the entire life.
Bride: I shall take care of all the homely responsibilities.

2nd Vow:
Groom: We shall protect our marriage and children.
Bride: I shall be your backbone.

3rd Vow:
Groom: We may work hard to provide our children with education and all the happiness in the world.
Bride: You are my priority to all other men.

4th Vow:
Groom: You complete my life.
Bride: I shall conspire to satisfy u in every possible way.

5th Vow:
Groom: You enriched my life with love and happiness. Be my best friend all my life.
Bride: I have nothing, but trust and respect for you. I promise to be with u in both good as well as bad times and shower loads and loads of love on you.

6th Vow:
Groom: May you live a peaceful and contended life.
Bride: I shall be your strength all your life.

7th vow:
Groom: We are two bodies, one soul from now, forever and ever and ever.
Bride: In front of almighty, I promise to take you as my husband not only in this birth but in all other incarnations. So beautiful and serene these vows are. Every Hindu is very fortunate to be blessed with such rich culture and extreme bliss.

Lavish Weddings: How Justifiable Are These

Recently, in the June end, I attended my best friend’s wedding, who is a Marwari. As she belongs to a very wealthy family she had sent me a very precious looking wedding card. Since she is my best friend I reached her place 10 days before the wedding date to help her out with the preparations and practice for the dance of the Mahila Sangeet Function, which is held in the evening before the wedding day. They had called special choreographers for that function and paid them around 6 lakhs only for teaching dance to all the members and relatives of the family and friends.

Functions other then wedding started 5 days before the wedding date. Every day a celebrity host or a singer or a dancer or performer was called just for normal functions. From this, you can figure out, to what extent they must have gone to show off their wealth on the wedding day and on Mahila Sangeet function. Dancers and performers from abroad stay for countless number of guests in the five star hotel in Udaipur. Pick up and drop facility for all the invitees, giving away laptops and expensive mobile phones as winning gifts for the games they made us play, infinite food items, and the extra ordinary entry of the Bridegroom in the Space Shuttle on the wedding day. OH MY GOD!! That was way too much. The worst thing is yet to come. That is giving of loads and loads of dowry. The total expenditure they did on wedding including dowry was around 5-6 crore.

But the admirable part is that, there are many Marwari’s, who are becoming alert on this issue and taking positive steps against this. Like in Kolkata, 80 Marwari associations announced that they have decided to be less flashy about the weddings. Right from the wedding invitations to the Bidai they will have simple arrangements but big celebration. They have decided to boycott every marriage where dowry is accepted and have also decided to revive the traditional system called ‘four-rupee milni’. This meeting was attended by various social activists including dignitaries. This decision has been accepted and appreciated by international, national and local associations and many more. The Marwari community has also come up with an idea of seeking help of the religious gurus on this matter as they have greater influence on the society.

The aim behind this strict decision is to build a progressive Marwari Society. If one community has started this tradition others should also follow it. This seems to be just the beginning and the same can be followed by other communities in India. It is believed that a lot can be saved and this money can be channelized for some philanthropic efforts by the bride and the groom. For example choosing eco friendly wedding invitations will not only save money but it will also reflect how much you care for the environment and the nation in particular.
