Arya Samaj Marriage

Pratigya Mantra

Pratigya Mantra is a a ritual solemnizing the marriage. The husband makes six marital vows holding his wife's hands. These vows make the marriage strong and sacred.


The couple take four rounds of the fire one for each four ashrams in the vedic age . Rounds around fire is also an fundamental part of Hindu marriage. In fact, it is the most important feature after sindoor or mangalsutra.

Sindoor Daan

Arya Samaj incorporates the sindoor daan ceremony. It is a very common ritual wherein the groom applies sindoor or vermillion on the wife's hair parting by her husband.


Dhruv Darshan

Dhruv Darshan is an age-old custom, wherein a newly married couple have to look at the dhruv star once their marriage is completed. They do so as a means to gain direction (symbolic) from the star as they embark upon journey of newly married life.


Suryanamaskar is an indigenous rite, in which people pray to the Sun with folded hands. Sun is the source of all living creation on earth. Hence, he is also regarded as god. The newly married couple pray for good health and prosperity for their conjugal life.


Music & Dance "Ladies Sangeet" is an integral part of any Indian marriage as it incorporates the tradition of music and dance. It has the ladies of the family and the girl's friends dancing and making merry all night long.


The wedding menu could consist of the local dishes of the people involved. As Arya Samaj pertains to no particular region, it mostly depends upon the bride or groom's side whoever is throwing the party. Ideally, there are the North-Indian dishes such as the Dal Makhni, Nan, Pulao, Mixed-Vegetable and non-vegetarian dishes (if permissible among the couple involved) like Chicken and Mutton curry, etc.
