|| Shubha Vivah - Marriage ||




|| Shubha Mangal Savadhan || Back to Services


In Hindu Philosophy Vivah (Marriage) is one of the 16 Sanskara  (teachings) on an Individual.  It is performed in order to repay the debt of God & Fore fathers. 

Marriage brings two families together. It is a serious commitment of a man & a woman towards each others towards the well being of their own selves and family.  Husband & wife form the wheels of the Chariot of their life, which need to move in the same direction & at the same speed.

Well known writer V. S. Khandekar says "Life is nothing but the compromise between Birth & Death" and so is Marriage between Man and Woman.  It runs on give and take.
