Arya Samaj Mandir In Palwal

Arya Samaj Mandir In Palwal,

The brother of the bride places her foot on a stone, while the groom recites mantras. The significance of this ceremony is to convey the brother’s blessings to the couple, especially the bride. He expresses the wish that their marriage be as firm and steady as the rock on which he has placed his sister’s foot. By touching her foot, he conveys that the bride is now responsible for upholding the honour of her family. He offers his sister puffed rice to assure her that, after her wedding, she would always have plenty to take back following every visit to her parents’ home. Another significance of giving her the rice husk is to tell her that she has been brought up by her parents and like the rice husk must now be replanted in another home in order to blossom and mature.
