About Hindi Matrimony

Hindi matrimonials are the marriage ceremonies of Hindi speaking persons of almost all the parts of India. Marriages are a very auspicious affair in Hindu mythology and they are thought to be pre-decided in heaven. Marriage marks an important transformation in man's life from Brahmacharya to Grihasthashram where he is laid with responsibilities of family. Thus, this occasion is celebrated with great pomp and show. Hindi matrimonial ceremony consists of a large set of rituals each having deep mythological as well as spiritual significance.

Hindi is the native language of most people living in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan. In 1950, it was declared that Hindi shall be written in the Devanagari script. It is the official language of the Federal Government of India.

Let's have an elaborated look at all the rituals of a typical Hindi wedding.

Pre-Wedding Rituals

In Hindi culture, arranged marriages are still most preferable socially. Once the elders have there consent for the alliance the horoscope of boy and girl is matched. If horoscope matches then the auspicious dates for various rituals have been finalized. Then comes a large number of momentous rituals.

Engagement - This ceremony is known by many names in different regions of India, for example, Sagai in Haryana, Roka in Punjab, Sakhar Puda in Maharashtra, Kasamdry among Kashmiri Pandits, Tilak among Marwaris, Nishchayam or Nishchaya Thamboolam in South India and Ghor Dana among Gujaratis. The couple may exchange rings during this ceremony along with an exchange of gifts between both the families to signify their acceptance of the alliance. The announcement of wedding date and signing of wedding agreement (Lgna Patrika) takes place on this day. This is followed by a grand feast.

Mehndi Ceremony - Mehndi is considered as one of the most important ornaments of the bride. The red color of the Mehndi stands for the prosperity that the bride is expected to bring to her new family. The family members gather for this ritual during which the hands, wrists, palms, and feet of the bride is decorated with the artistic red shade of the Mehendi. Even the groom's hand, especially in Rajasthani weddings, is decorated with Mehendi patterns.

Sangeet - This is a fun-filled ceremony during which the auspicious alliance of the couple is celebrated by the family members. Previously, this ritual is performed separately in both the houses especially by the ladies of the family where they sing and dance on traditional and regional songs. But nowadays it had become an elaborate affair where both the family came together and have a bash of musical night.

Haldi - Turmeric paste is regarded as very propitious and thus this ceremony is practiced in almost all the parts of the country. Married women of both the family apply the turmeric paste to both the bride and the groom. This takes place separately at bride and groom's houses.

Ganesh Pooja - It may be performed a day before or on the dawn of marriage day. Lord Ganesh who is considered as a savior from all the obstacles is worshipped so as to seek his blessings for an obstacle-free married life of the couple.

Wedding Day Rituals

In spite of slight variations among different regions of the country a typical wedding of Hindi people have following 13 steps:

Vara Satkaarah - It literally means welcoming of the groom and his party at the entrance gate of the wedding hall. The bride's mother blesses the groom with rice and trefoil before applying tilak of vermilion and turmeric powder. The bride's brother then escorts him to the wedding platform, known as the mandap.

Madhuparka Ceremony - It refers to the arrival of the groom at the mandap. The bride's mother offers him milk and honey while bride's father washes his feet and bestows presents to him.

Kanya Dan - This is the most important ceremony where the father of the bride gives away his daughter to the groom as a responsibility and the groom promises him to take care of her.

Vivah-Homa - During this ritual, a sacred fire is lit so as to ascertain that all auspicious undertakings are begun in an atmosphere of purity and spirituality.

Pani-Grahan - The groom takes the right hand of the bride in his left hand and accepts her as his lawfully wedded wife. Also, the couple promises to each other that while pursuing a life of Dharma, Artha, and Karma, they will remain faithful to each other.

Pratigna-Karan - The couple offers ghee to the sacred fire and takes solemn vows of loyalty, steadfast love and life-long fidelity to each other.

Shila Arohan - The mother of the bride helps the bride to step onto a stone slab and this represents that she is directing her to prepare herself for a new life.

Laja-Homah - Puffed rice known as Laja is offered into the sacred fire by the bride while she keeps the palms of her hands over those of the groom.

Parikrama or Pradakshina or Mangal Fera - The couple moves around the sacred fire seven times while uttering promises to complement each other's journey of life. This aspect of the ceremony legalizes the marriage according to the Hindu Marriage Act as well as custom. Following this, the groom applies vermilion on the center parting of the bride and ties Mangalsutra around his neck.

Saptapadi - Marriage knot is tied on one end of the groom's scarf with the bride's dress. Then they take seven steps representing nourishment, strength, prosperity, happiness, progeny, long life, and harmony and understanding, respectively.

Abhishek - It signifies the sprinkling of water and seeking blessings of the sun and the pole star.

Anna Praashan - The couple makes food offerings into the fire then feed a morsel of food to each other, expressing mutual love and affection.

Aashirvadah - During this ritual, the couple takes the blessings of the elders.

Post-Wedding Rituals

It primarily comprises of Vidaai (farewell of the bride), Grihapravesha (welcoming of the bride at her new home), and finally a reception party thrown by groom's family.

Vidai - Also known as doli, this is an emotional send-off of the bride. During this, the bride throws back three handfuls of rice and coins over her shoulders to signify an end of her debt to her parents for nurturing her and wishing prosperity upon them.

Grihapravesha - On arrival at groom's place, the couple is welcomed by performing traditional aarti. The bride enters the house by displacing rice filled pot with her right feet as a symbol of bringing prosperity. Various wedding games are played to make bride comfortable.

Reception - A party is organized in the form of a grand feast by the groom's family for their friend and relatives. The bride is introduced to all during this party.
