Vivaha Karma (marriage)

 

Vishnu Stuti (praise of Vishnu):

 

With folded hands he should say the names of Vishnu:

 

@ translations

 

om krishnananta mukunda madhava hare govinda vamsimukha
shri gopijanavallabha vrajasuhrit bhakta priyedyacyuta
bhakta premavasha kriya phala rasanandaika dinarti hrit
radha kanta duranta samshriti haretyakhyahi jihve sada
om tad vishnoh paramam padam
sada pashyanti surayah
diviva cakshur atatam

 

“Just as those with ordinary vision see the sun’s rays in the sky, so the wise and learned devotees always see the supreme abode of Lord Vishnu.”

 

om krishno vai saccidananda ghanah
krishnah adi purushah krishnah purusottamah
krishno ha u karmadi mulam
krishnah sa ha sarvaikaryah
krishnah kasham krit adisha mukha prabhu pujyah
krishno ‘nadis tasmin ajandantar bahye
yan mangalam tal labhate kriti

 

“Lord Krishna is the color of a new rain-cloud, therefore He is compared to a transcendental cloud full of eternity, bliss and cognizance. He is the original and Supreme Person. He is the origin of all activities and the one and only Lord of all. He is the worshipful Lord of the best of demigods, the controller of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Krishna is without any beginning. Whatever auspiciousness is found within or beyond this universe the devotee obtains in Krishna alone.”

 

om agnim duram purodadhe
havyavaham upabruve
deva ashadayad iha

 

“The fire from afar I place in front of me. I call near the bearer (the fire) of the oblations. May the Lord show compassion here”.

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih
trishtup chandah
shri vishnuh devata
agni-sthapane viniyogah
om ihaivayam itaro
jataveda devebhyo
havyam vahatu prajanan

 

“May the remaining fire here, omniscient Jatavedas, carry the oblations to the gods”.

 

Brahma Sthapana (installing and worshipping the brahma ):

 

He may receive a Vaishnava brahmana conversant with the rituals, alternatively he can make a doll of kusha (kushamaya brahmana) and establish it as the brahma.

 

@footnote: In the case of receiving the kushamaya brahmana, the hotri (in this case the groom) should recite all the mantras.

 

He addresses the brahma thus:

 

“om sadhu bhavan astam”

 

“May you be comfortable.”

 

The brahma replies:

 

“om sadhu aham ase”

 

“I am comfortable.”

 

The groom says:

 

“om arcayishyamo bhavantam”

 

“I will worship you.”

 

The brahma replies:

 

“om arcaya”

 

“You may honor me.”

 

Touching the brahma’s knee with gandha, flowers, tulasi, cloth etc the groom should say:

 

om govinda govinda govinda
om tat sat
adya …
_______mase (month)
_______pakshe (lunar fortnight)
_______tithau (lunar day)
asya______karmano (function)
homa karmani kritakritavekshana rupa brahma tvena bhavantam aham vrine

 

“On this day of ______, in the month of ______, in the lunar fortnight of ______, on the lunar day of ______, on the occasion of ______, I choose you as brahma for supervising the proper execution of the rituals.”

 

The brahma replies:

 

“om vrito ‘smi”

 

“I have been selected”

 

The groom says:

 

“om yatha yatham brahma kama kuru”

 

“Please perform your activities in a befitting way”

 

The brahma should reply:

 

“om yatha jnanam karavam”

 

“May I perform to the best of my abilities”

 

The groom, taking the water vessel, should proceed to the South side of the fire and at a distance of one aratni (distance from elbow to tip of little finger) from the fire, sprinkle water towards the East, and over that he should place kusha grass with tips facing East.

 

Then facing West with the strewn kusha in front of him, he should take one blade of that strewn kusha in the thumb and ring finger of the left hand and throw it in the Southwest direction, saying:

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih
gayatri chandah
shri vishnuh devata
trinanirasane viniyogah
om nirasthah paravasuh

 

“The depleter of fortune has been thrown away.”

 

Facing North with the right foot pressing the left foot, the groom should sprinkle water on the strewn kusha and then seat the brahma on the kusha, facing him towards the North (in the case of a kushamaya brahma, he should face the East). Touching water, he should say to the brahma :

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih
trishtup chandah
shri vishnuh devata
vaishnava-brahmo-pareshane viniyogah
om a vasoh sadane sida

 

“Sit on this seat of wealth.”

 

The brahma replies:

 

sidami

 

“I sit.”

 

The groom should offer the Brahma some mahaprasada, candana, kum-kum, fruit, sweets, etc. to honor him. Retracing his steps to the East side of the fire he should sit.

 

To nullify any mistakes during the sacrifice, the brahma says:

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih
gayatri chandah
shri vishnuh devata
ayanjiya vag-vacanimita jape viniyogah
om idam vishnuh vicakrame
tredha nidadhe padam
samudham asya pagmshule

 

“Vishnu has stridden here. He has placed three pure steps on this earth.”

 

Caru Sthapana (Placing the caru or cooked grains):

 

Caru, having been prepared before the function, should be placed on the North side of the fire at this time.

 

Bhumi Japa (prayers to the earth):

 

Kneeling, and placing both his hands on the earth, palms down, the groom should say:

 

om parameshti vishnu rishih
anushtup chandah
shri vishnuh devata
bhumi jape viniyogah
om idam bhumeh bhajamahe
idam bhadram sumangalam
para sapatnan vadhasva
anyesham vindate dhanam

 

(NB: At night replace the word “dhanam” with “vasum”).

 

“We receive this auspicious offering from the earth. Repel the enemies, who take the wealth of others”.
