Seven Vows for the bond of this life and beyond
A Hindu wedding is nothing short of a Royal affair. But underneath all the gorgeous colours, opulent celebrations and striking decorations, there are ceremonies that establish the life long bond between the bride and the Bridegroom. Some ceremonies go on to forge the bond across seven births! One such ceremony and the most important of all in a Hindu wedding is ‘Saatpheras’. This ceremony is about seven vows that every Hindu couple has to take with holy fire as witness. The couple goes around the fire seven times and each time a vow is solemnised.
So, what really is the significance of the much coveted SaatPheras?
The First phera is for plentiful food and nourishment for the couple. The second one seeks blessing for spiritual, physical and mental health. Third phera is a promise to be by each other in Happiness and Pain. Fourth Phera is for increasing love and respect for each other and between families. The fifth vow asks god for noble and obedient children in future. The sixth phera seeks to have a peaceful and long life together. In the seventh and last phera, Bride and Bridegroom promise each other their unconditional love and loyalty. They agree to become each other’s friends for life no matter what condition exists.
These beautiful vows become the crux of every marriage and bind the couple in a holy bond forever. In some cultures, the sister of the groom ties a knot between couple whereas in some the couplehold each other’s hands while taking the vows. This auspicious ceremony is performed on a pre meditated muhurut time decided by the priest.
