Hindu Marriage 7 Sacred Steps

Hindu Marriage 7 Sacred Steps
Seven Steps Around the Sacred Fire

The central ritual of a Hindu wedding isthe sapta-pad, the seven steps taken by the
couple together around the sacred fire.

The rituals begins when the priest starts chanting and the bride and groom approach each
other in an area purified with piles of rice.

Holding right hands-the bride has to reach across her body to grab the groom’s right hand—the couple take seven steps together
around the holy fire (or more precisely circle the fire seven times), place garlands of rose
pedals and marigolds around each other’s neck and daub sandalwood paste on each
other’s foreheads. These acts are the equivalent of exchanging rings in a Christian wedding ceremony.

The seven steps symbolize eternal friendship and the
couple’s journey through life together.
