Vivaha Karma (marriage)

 

Dhriti Homa:

 

Entering his house, the groom should perform Kushandika rites, establishing the fire named “dhriti”, perform silent homa with ghee-soaked wood, and then Vyasta Samasta Mahavyahriti Homa.

 

He will then offer eight oblations of ghee saying:

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih brihati chandah
shri vishnuh devata
dhriti home viniyogah
om iha dhritih svaha

 

“May constancy reign in this house”

 

om iha svadhritih svaha

 

“May self control reign in this house.”

 

om iha ratih svaha

 

“May there be delight here.”

 

om iha ramasva svaha

 

“Please enjoy this house.”

 

om mayi dhritih svaha

 

“May constancy reign within me.”

 

om mayi svadhritih svaha

 

“May self control prevail within me.”

 

om mayi ramah svaha

 

“May there be delight for me. “

 

om mayi ramasva svaha

 

“May you find pleasure in me.”

 

He should perform Vyasta Samasta Mahavyahriti Homa, and offer ghee-soaked wood into the fire silently.

 

The bride should give salutations to his family, stating her father’s gotra:

 

(father’s gotra) gotrasya shri (her own name) aham bho bhavatah abhivadaye

 

“I, named……, of……..gotra, pay my respects to you.”

 

He should perform Shatyayana Homa, recite the Vamadevya Ganam prayers, perform the other rites of Udicya Karma and give gifts to the priests and Vaishnavas.

 

Caturthi Homa:

 

After the Dhriti Homa, on the fourth day after the marriage, the husband should perform Kushandika rites and call the fire named “Shikhi” After silently offering ghee soaked wood into the fire and performing Vyasta Samasta Mahavyahrti Homa the husband should place his wife on his right side and place a pot of water mixed with tulasi, candana, flowers and kusha on the South side of the fire. The husband should offer twenty oblations of ghee into the fire with the following mantras (as prayashcitta to remove any elements in his wife that oppose faith in Lord Vishnu). After each oblation the remaining drops of ghee in the sruva should be put in the waterpot.
