Dating meaning in telugu
At a glance, the intricate rituals of an Indian wedding may appear like a lot of chaos and unnecessary fuss to the unfamiliar eye, but on delving deeper, it becomes obvious that these rituals are symbols of the holy vows of matrimony, which include not just the bride and groom, but their families as well!
And one fine example of such a wedding is the Telugu Hindu wedding.
Early Brahmins had an organized system where boys were first given their sacred threads, and then sent away to learn scriptures from sages or wise men.
On their return, they were made to perform the Snatakam, which meant that their education was complete and they were now ready for greater responsibilities like starting a family.
Today, this ritual signifies the readiness of the groom for marriage and is concluded by the wearing of a silver thread. Kashi Yatra As mentioned earlier in the Snatakam, the groom is now ready for more responsibilities where he has the option of choosing between getting married or going to places like Kashi (in Uttar Pradesh) for further learning.
The Kashi yatra ceremony is a playful take on this where the groom pretends to leave for Kashi, renouncing worldly pleasures like marriage.
The mixture of flavors indicates that the bride and groom will stick together through both the bitter and sweet phases of life.
This is the point at which the couple is now officially man and wife and the curtain separating them is now removed. Madhuparkam The priests chant and pray for a prosperous and successful marriage, and ask the Gods to remove any deficiencies in the couple.
Sometimes, a sweet dish and gifts are presented to the groom by his in-laws; a substitute for offering a cow as was the practice in olden days. Jeelakarra-Bellamu This is the main event of the wedding.
The bath is followed by family members anointing the bride and groom with oil and performing an aarti to keep them safe from evil eyes, and to seek God’s blessings through all the wedding proceedings. Gauri Pooja This is a pooja performed by the bride to the Goddess Gauri.
One reason for this is because she represents fertility, and the other is because her bond with her husband Lord Shiva is considered an ideal that married couples should strive for.
To begin, the free end of the bride’s pallu is tied with one end of the groom’s shawl.
The fire is meant to destroy all evils and to act as a witness to the holy ceremony.Jeelakarra refers to cumin and Bellamu refers to jaggery; this ritual involves placing a paste of cumin and jaggery on the hands of the couple.
