Arya samaj wedding rituals

Satkaar.com is pleased to provide an insight to these traditions...

Arya samaj or the aryan community follows the teachings of Swami Dayanand Saraswati, founder of the community in the weddings. The wedding ceremony is organized in accordance with the ancient Vedas. A typical Arya samaj wedding is quite a modest one and is not characterized by extravagant ceremonies. In this type of a marriage, no particular diety is worshipped but rather there is the Pooja of Panchtatvas, the basic five elements earth, fire, water, air and ether.

An Arya Samaj wedding is in accordance with the Arya Marriage Validation Act XIX of 1937. The priests complete the ritual and interpret the meanings of the Vaidic chants to the couple so that they are enlightened with the importance of wedding and also about living together for the lifetime.

Rituals and Customs
Some unique rituals are performed in the India Arya samaj weddings. Rituals like Madhuparka, Shilarohan, Parikrama, Pani Grahan, and others are to be observed in the Arya Samaj Weddings in India. In the Madhuparka ritual, the bride offers the groom water three times and then the groom takes the Madhuparka, which is made of curds, cream, and honey. After offering the mixture to the almighty, the groom eats prasadam. I
n the Panigrahan ritual, the groom holds the hands of his bride and recites mantras and promises to stay by her side in all circumstances.

Highlights
The most important highlight is the simplicity followed in this wedding. Unlike other types of weddings, this wedding is not lavish with regards to the decoration and other ceremonies. The viewing of the Polestar or the Dhruvnakshatra by the couple instills in them the ability to always stay together like the star.
