Vivah Pooja

Hindu marriage joins two individuals for life, where a man and a woman take pledge for a lifetime of commitment and trust, so that they can pursue dharma (duty), artha (possessions), kama (physical desires), and moksha (ultimate spiritualrelease) together. Hindus attach a great deal of importance to marriages.

The ceremonies are very colourful, and celebrations may extend for several days. In India, by law and tradition, no Hindu marriage is binding or complete unless the ritual of seven steps and vows in presence of fire (Saptapadi) is completed by the bride and the groom together.

7 Commitments of Marriage:- Always remember the divine. Always treat each other with sympathy, love and compassion. Help each other in all good deeds. Keep in mind pure and virtuous. Be strong and righteous. Show goodwill and affection to parents, brothers, sisters and other family members. Bring up the children in such a manner that they are strong in mind and body. Always welcome and respect guests.
