Hindu Wedding Ceremony by Babylon Toronto Weddings

The conduction of Hindu nuptials ceremonies takes place in a traditional Hindu setting where the priests use the Sanskrit language during the ceremony. Many Hindu couples hold marriages in Toronto where they hire Toronto wedding photographers or Toronto wedding videographers to cover the ceremony. Hindus attach importance to the marriage ceremonies and marriage therefore; they try as much as possible to make the ceremonies colorful. Hindus residing in Brampton and Niagara Falls believe that the foundation of a happy marriage is the establishment of warmth and love between the married couple. Both the bride and groom usually dress in traditional Hindu marriage attire, which include turbans for the groom and classic saris for the bride. The nuptials attire donned by the couple should be bright in color to display the mood of the ceremony and the groom should give the bride jewelry made of pure gold as a sign of love.

Before the actual marriage day, there are other ceremonies such as the Tilak ceremony, where the bride's male relatives place Tilaks on the groom's forehead as a sign of favor and acceptance by the bride's family. The Mehendi Lagwana ceremony involves the application of 'henna' on the bride's feet and left hand; a person should not apply henna on the right hand because of the Hathlewa ceremony, which requires the priest to tie the bride's right hand, to the groom's left hand as a sign of unity.

Hindu marriages that take place in Markham require a priest from the couple's caste to conduct the nuptials ceremony. The marriage couple should be compatible in terms of faith and caste because people from different castes should not marry according to the Hindu faith. During the nuptials ceremony, the groom stands up holding the bride's hand and thereafter walks around the Agni, which is holy fire. The groom goes round while reciting 'mantra', which are vows that the groom makes to the bride. The vows that the groom makes to the bride include daily provision of food, support, clothing and shelter and the groom makes it known to the guests of the undying love for the bride. Hindus, who wed in Mississauga, may hire Mississauga wedding videographers or Mississauga wedding photographers to cover the groom making vows so that it can serve as future evidence in case the groom does not respect the vows made.

The bride also makes vows to the groom by holding the groom's right hand and reciting the vows in the Sanskrit language. In Ontario, many Hindu marriage ceremonies take place during the summer season because the marriage ceremonies usually involve much dancing and most of the rituals performed take place in open space. The couple hires nuptials videographers to take a wedding video of the couple during the ritual performance. In Canada, many Hindu couples have spicy food served during their marriage as their tradition demands. Modern Hindu ceremonies are shorter than the traditional marriages in terms of duration and takes place in below a 'mandap', which is a canopy that has for pillars. Hindu nuptials ceremonies require a priest to make prayers to Lord Vishnu, who is the protector of all men and life.

    STRENGTHS:
    1) Hinduism is one of the VERY few religions (UU being the only other one that immediately comes to mind) that sincerely embraces other faiths as being 100% legitimate paths.
    2) Probably the oldest extant faith in the world — yet with some incredibly advanced thinking on spiritual matters.
    3) Hinduism is not dogmatic but rather provides general, comprehensive guidance for a more spiritual life. As such, one can really make the religion meaningful to themselves — and grow spiritually in a positive, supportive environment. Dogmatic religions tend to focus heavily on how you differ with the faith and make you feel shameful. Less so with Hinduism.
    4) Hinduism recognizes many paths to god… and that different people can, and prefer to, see God in different ways. So, its very inclusive.
    5) Hinduism espouses "ahimsa" — the idea that one should do minimal harm to others…. physically, spiritually, mentally — and karma, the idea of "what goes around, comes around." For those who embrace these ideas, it can profoundly affect their thinking and behavior.

    WEAKNESSES:
    1) Hinduism's dogma-minimalism and lack of central authority can possibly encourage almost too much spiritual freedom to help keep practitioners on a noble path. (This lack of dogma and authority would have to included on the "Strengths" list as well, as it allows people to make Hinduism a religion that speaks to them and works for them.)
    2) Hinduisms almost inseparable connection to Indian culture makes it a religion that is often hard too approach and integrate into for those from outside the culture.
    3) The religion's acceptance (or embracing) of the use of "idols" makes it terribly misunderstood. But, I guess that's not really the religion's shortcoming per se… hmm.
    4) Hinduism is connected to, and has tolerated, the caste system… although one could argue that this is more so an Indian cultural phenomenon more so than a Hindu occurence.

    Enough for now… : )

    Namaste!

    probably not until everyone who was alive during World War 2 AND their grandchildren die out. after that, it wont be such a personal thing to people, because of people of our generation we most likely know someone who was affected by the nazi regime. after a couple decades itll just be another thing in history and not such a proximity.

    interesting.
    I admire Hindus- their looks. I have come across a couple of very attractive ones.

    My Christian friend dated a Hindu and they were cute together. Hindus have very high morals and are usually very highly intelligent.

    I like them.

    Bharathiya is a North Indian manupilation. Their is no evidence he ruled Indian sub-continent.Dravidians are the original inhabitants chaeted by central Asian people with their cunning and crooked methods.

    All cows are sacred not just a select few.

    All living beings reincarnate, unless they attain Moksha (liberation / enlightenment.)

    As for the body of a dead cow, that varies. Some will make use of it's leather and give away the meat to non-vegetarians. Others may have a burial funeral (as opposed to cremation) but it is not considered a requirement like it is for humans to receive cremation funeral. Since a cow is an animal it doesn't have the same lingering attachment to it's body that a human does.

    Nothing in the Hindu scriptures refers to a cow as being a "divine being". In the Bhagvad Gita the Lord says "offer me a leaf or water or a pure form of your food". In the scriptures it is also said that you will be judged by the pain you cause to others including that which you consume. In effect it is a subtle message to refrain from eating any form of life. The cow is not placed on top of any divine order. Special status is also accorded to the cow by Hindus since Lord Krsna was a cowherd who was saved by a herd of cows when he was attacked by an evil king. The cow was also revered for its agricultural and transport benefits in ancient India which included its working the fields and providing milk.

    I feel sorry for you. I know a family, where a guy left them and became sanyasa under this guy. His life is ruined. I think these people are using drugs to keep their follower under their control. I think youth of this country is misguided a lot .

    Hindus are very rich in terms of their culture and tradition and they were one of the pioneers of ancient civilization in Asia. Much of their ancient traditions are carried over to the new generation, passing it onto their descendants for many generations. The rituals in their marriage signify the importance of such event in their lives, culture and tradition.

    A Hindu wedding is a religious ceremony and one of the most important of the sixteen Hindu sanskars or sacraments. It is seen, not only as the bond between two people, but also the bond between two families.Traditionally, Hindu marriage is much more than just celebration and fun. It demands sacrifice, companionship, dedication, and devotion from both the partners.

    One of the most significant rituals the bride and the groom perform is the Saptapadi or saat phere around a scared fire and light, which is symbolic to God. While the bride and the groom take the seven circles, the priest or purohit recites the mantras and speak of the real essence and significance of marriage.

    The bride and the bride groom take the vows before God, symbolized by fire and light. These seven promises taken together by the bride and groom build's the foundation of their relationship and marriage. It speaks of the loyalty, love, and commitment they would eventually share in their married life. Thereafter, post wedding ceremonies are performed, which mostly include vidaai and reception. This is the most emotional moment of the wedding, when the bride takes leave from her parents and other family members and takes her first step towards her new life in her husband's house. On reaching the new home, there are a number of ceremonies that are performed, right from welcoming the new bride to playing games and making merry.

It is also during this time that the groom fills vermillion or sindoor in the center parting of the bride and puts mangalsutra around her neck. Both sindoor and mangalsutra have strong religious implications and are sacred symbols of a married woman.
