WEDDING CEREMONY.
 
AN ENGEMENT CEREMONY

 

An Engagement is a formal announcement of a probationary period for the couple and both the family,to get to know each other at the same time they announce to the society of their intentions to fix the marriage at a future date .As always the ceremony starts with the Ganpati poojan then the rituals of each family is observed,such as, for the Lohana Community "Sawa Panchana","Chandlo Matli" for the Charotari Patel,for the Sowrastra Kathiyawadi "Narriyad Paddo", "Chundadi" for the Kutchi Community.A formal announcement of each Family name,formal place of residence in India ,Africa, and now at present is made so that guest at the ceremony get to know each other's family background.

GRAHASHANTI

Graha Shanti is to apace the "NAVAGRAHADEVTAS" The nine planets,including our earth;where we live now; around the Sun "THE SURIYANARAAYANA".SHREE SHAKTI KEEPS THEM IN ORDER by the gravitational force,so we start by worshiping the sixteen "MANDAP MATRUKAS",followed by the "NANDI SHARDHA" .Nandi is the vehicle of "MAHA DEV",the poothiyoo,of "SANKER BHGAWAN".Dynasty is produced through maraige ,so the departed "POORAWAJOOS",of the dynasty are worshiped,in the GRAHASHANTI .The maternal uncle "MAMA" BRINGS ,the "MOSADDO" for the Surtis "MAMEROO" for the" KATHIYAWADIS",while the "FAIBA" dose the gotrej gotedoo and the "MAI MATALA"mostly for Suratis.

 
MANDAPA ROOPAN

Four Man of the dynasty erect the "MANEK STHAMBH" .In an electric cable there is the live, the neutral and the "EARTH" .MANEK STHAMBH is the Earthing, just as the earthing in the electric cable directs the electric power into the earth should there be a short circuit ,the Manek Sthambh diffuses any tensions amongst the guest.

 
SAMAYOO OR MILLINI

Bride Groom arrives to the fore court to get married along with his associates the "JAAN", where he his greeted by the host the bride's parents and their associate "SAMAN AYOO",with the Varbeddoo,carried on the head by the little sister or a friend of the bride, groom is then ushered to the venue.Hindu Punjabis call this Millni they get gifts from the brides family and sweets are fead to Jaanayas.

 
POOKHNOO

Either at the entrance of the hall or inside the hall at a designated ,usually an isle made by the mandap arrangers,Pokhnoo is performed.This cast away the evil and has a Vedic meaning to it as well  I will explain at the ceremony if you wish.

 

 

 

 

 
WEDDING CEREMONY. IN THE MANDAP

The groom is in the mandap my self and his in laws to be make him comfortable and ask for his permission to worship him as LORD VISHNU.The sankalpa is performed "VISHNU ROOPAY VARAHAY" "LAKSHMI ROOPAYA KANIKA"

 
KANIYADAN SANKALP

The daughter who ended up in our arms as a baby ,is now going to be your wife, In front of all our relatives and yours ,the MARAJ, the DEVATAS ,solemnly give our peace of heart to you with the blessing of the DEVTAS, THE MAHRAJ,THE AGNI DEVTAS ,HAND OVER THE RESPONSEBILITY TO YOU,FROM THIS MOMENT you are responsible for feeding her cherishing her .This act will give us the highest "POONN" OF THE "KANIYADAN"..

 
MADHOO PARKHA

The groom is worshiped as Lord Vishnu ,he is offered Vister, Achmani,Padhium then the Mdhupark,his senses are purified by the niase and then a vale is drawn in front of him to prevent him from looking at the bride when she walks into the mandap.

 
ARRIVAL OF THE BRIDE

The bride is waiting for me to announce "Kanya padhrawo savadhan", accompanied by her mamas or friends she walks down the aisle into the mandap the vale is lifted off and she puts a garland around the grooms neck and get her garland from the groom .They sit facing each other ,she is now worshiped as the Goddess Mahalakshmi and groom as Lord Vishnu their toes of the right feet are washed by the parents ,they are then united by the Varmala and a knot is tied called the Chedda Cheddi.Four married ladies from each side comes to give their blessings. Then as  per each individual family traditions the rituals are performed ,for the Mistry family there is the Addloo Paddloo, for Kutchie family there is the kanyadan,Chabb for the Brahmans and so on. Although having performed numerous ceremonies I do confess that I will not know all the rities and rivages of every family.

 
MANGAL FERRA

Now the groom and the bride are united in marriage and have entered into their Grihastashram ,so the yagna or havan is performed by them offering Ahuties to the Grahadi Devtas ,four brothers of the bride come to give jawtal at each mangal ferras of Dharma,Arth,Kama and Moksh.All this is explained in greater details at the wedding.

Four married ladies from each side comes with moong in their hands and whispers Akhand Saubhagyavati into the right ear of the bride this will conclude the wedding ceremony.This is a very brief outline to the ceremony ,each ceremony is individually different .It is always better to spend sometime with me to discuss your wedding.Finally again as per family customs  both the families are united by this marriage, for the Surties they have "Satpedhi no Sambandh",for the Kathiyawadi mostly sweets are Fed to each other and both respective parents hug each other.Most family traditions I will be familiar with ,however I confess that I can not know everything that is why I spend time with you in preparation of your wedding.

 
RANDALMATA POOJAN

  Randal Mata is the wife of the Sun God Shree Suryanarayan, She is the ultimate energy,as the sun is the ultimate source of energy the Shakti.Vishavakarma is the Father of Shree Randal Mata ,I believe Vishvakarma is the assisstant ,the acctual form of Lord Brahma,One day Randal mata got very tired of all the radiance flowing from the Suryanarayan; the heat was too much for her to bear ,She went to the parents house and said "My Father I need salvation" as the heat from my husband is over whelming .Father due to his vow to Suryanarayan in the lagana mandap was embezzled, but being a creator he came with a solution and created a duplicate Randal Mata . The duplicate Randal Mata went back to Suryanarayan, he produce more children with her ,but one day he noticed that she was being biased  towards the children of the original Randal Mata and eventually discovered the fraud !!! Since that day the Randal Mata  comes to your home in pair as Lotas ,From two to eight Lotas ,IF MORE THEN EIGHT THEN THEY BECOME A JAAG. One as the original the other as the duplicate.The JAAG has to be performed for seven days continously for each lota you have to invite seven goinies, for two: fourteen goinies,for four: twenty eight goinies,for more then EIGHT ????then that becomes a JAAG.You have to do the pooja for seven days inviting  alternatIve goinies for each day, So 56 alternate goinies a day.Now a days in london there are so called Bhuvas and Mandirs ,who perform Randalmata pooja 108 Randalmata Lotas in one day !!!!!!! only RANDAL MATA KNOWS OF WHAT AND HOW AND WHY OF THEIR MOTIVES.BUT if more then eight lotas that is definatly a JAAG.

 

 
SATYANARAYAN POOJA AND KATHA

The Katha is from the Puranic coming from the Skhandh Puran where the Lord Vishnu has given the benediction that who ever performs this Satay vrat pooja  he have his wishes full filled. The pooja includes Ganpati pooja Mahalakshmi, Maha Kali,Maha Saraswati and Kuldevi .Vishnu Sahastra Namavali ,then Five Chapters are read and interprated as per adhiatmik meaning.

Life is a cycle of defining moments which see us evolve at every stage. From births, marriages, to the passing of loved ones, each event has its own festivities and ceremony leaving us with fond and precious memories. Sanskaras are purification rites from the Vedic tradition used for protection of the body,mind,intelligence and soul .Space the vast sky has a minute dimension within the brain . The Soul is a function of Brain the intelligence and the mind are the products of deeds ,as  each and every actions has an equal and the opposite reaction,transmigrating from one life to next, just as the time and the space are bounded into eventuality,the earth,the space, the cosmos, the atmosphere, the water and the distance Sunlight are bounded by gravity similarly the Human is bonded by love, greed ,Maya and selfish motivating forces.


TIMELESS :::::::::
These timeless rituals serve to invoke blessings and auspiciousness at every stage of one`s life- inviting good karma from birth to death. It is unfortunate that in the 21st century, most genuine Vedic ceremonies have been replaced by concocted rituals, due to lack of understanding of the Vedas, hearsay and housewives tales and even worse by the present day gurus and some what sophisticated appearing disipline such as BHARMA KUMARIS THE B.K. who while clinging to the Sanatan dharma to extract the essence such as: "THE RAJ YOG FROM THE BHAGWAT GEETA FROM SHREEMAD BHAGWAT PURAN" while pursueding the innocent in ignoring the 16 sanskar even at a death of a person they do funeral services and advocate feed every one without even doing the last rights of the diseased; no one should eat anything till the pindd sanyojan and visarjan that is what Yaggnavalk said in the BHITAKSHA a sort version an important part of the 16 sanskar as per all the SANATANI SCRIPTURES including Naymitik karmprakash,till then the diseased family are in SUTAK.  the SANATAN DHARMA IS A WIDE UMBRELA for every one  the" KARMA KAND "is the essence of the SANATAN DHARMA,even The Gods do the  pindd visarjan after there departed, just as Lord Ram did after his father Dasrath .
 
IN YOUR SERVICE :::::::::


We at SHREE SHAKTI MANDIR Wembley London Middlesex U.K.
believe everybody should have the opportunity to have pure and authentic Pooja,Havan,& Sanskar ceremonies even living in the Western countries. We provide genuine rituals from the ancient scriptures for all Hindu families. The ceremonies are conducted in Sanskrit, and translated in English, and other Indian languages, making the tradition accessible and appealing to all, while re-igniting the flame of Vedic civilization.London is a capital of English speaking world adopting vast culture from all over the world and translating complex knowledge into understandable medium .
To achieve Knowledge, Wealth, Health and Peace, Vedas inform us to follow certain principles and perform certain Pujas, Vratas and Sankar depending on the occasion. We perform various Home and Community Hindu Religious Services for all the occasions(from birth till death), including but not limited to Marriages, Satyanarayana Vratham(Pooja), Gruhapravesham[House Warming],Starting new office, Business, etc..The word Hindu Priest has many meanings , Hindu has some roots with the Indus valley civilisation in that ,the people who lived there where called Hindus .The word Sanatan or Sanatani is the proper name of the Hindu as this means the one boundless by time and the three phase of existence.Sanatan means pertaining to the universe.Hindu Priest has to understand the knowledge and impart that understanding to create a peace full and blissful atmosphere bringing Yajaman closer to the Almighty during the ceremony .Shree Shakti Mandir in Wembley Middlesex is close to London When you visit the Temple you may feel this atmosphere.You will be absorbed into the peace full presence of the Almighty ,this is a purpose of any ceremony you want a Hindu Priest to conduct.Hindu Priest is there  for guidance through out your life .Any one who approach a Hindu Priest  should know that  the Hindu Priest is not a GURU or self made GOD , THAT is what a common man has adopted to now a days as Knowledge is  there: in the  books and over the Internet,any one can study the mantras by heart , and claim to be a self made GURU .A Hindu Priest has to be born A Brahman has to have a sacred thread , must know the Purushukt, Bhagwat Geeta , Bhdrashukt, both the VEDIC AND THE PURANIC MANTRA BY HEART. Now a days any Brahman boy  regardless of lack of knowledge becomes a HINDU PRIEST .HINDU PRIEST is not a means of living BUT a way of teaching a living.Hindu Priest is a guide through 16 sanskar of the three phase existence.Hindu Priest is a practical person is part of your family ,bad times good times  HINDU PRIEST  IS YOUR LIFE.London is the centre of all the religious activities to that extent that it is viewed as qualification even by the Indian Hindu Priest to come to London for few months go back to India and tell every one that he is LONDON RETURNED!!!!!!!!!!  London is a tirath in that respect.Hindu Priest  serve the community by guiding at the individual level by involving him self at the day to day existence illusions level magnifying the finer details. Hindu Priest warmly embrace the details analysing the beyond till merging into the mirage to extract the essence of existence while not being deluded into believing that any of the mirage is the essence.Hindu priest is a guide on this temporary holiday .Hindu Priest  will tell you through his own Knowledge  speaking in the words of the Vedas with Puranic counter part  to bring you out of the illusion.Hindu Priest want deny any of your enjoyment but Hindu Priest will consolidate  all OF your ENJOYMENT .Enjoy with the reassurance that by paying the Hindu Priest a small Gratuity a magnitude of abundance is for you to exploit if you want .Hindu Priest NEVER PUTS A PRICE ON ANY OF HIS SERVICES. We never  put any price on any of our services  BUT at the same time we distance our selves from time wasters.We are not the items of your window shopping . Hindu Priest has to be approached with humblest attitude, .We never say that you pay us £50.00 any time you come to us BUT at the same time, just as I  understand  your need to meet me,and I do love meeting people coming to me, and love spending time discussing your event with you; you have to appreciate that when you go to a Hindu Priest  you must not go empty handed that is a Norm.Hindu priest is also known as in GUJARATI as GUJARATI MAHARAJ ,BHRAMAN MARAJ; and in hindi as PUNDITJI.
