Marriage is a social as well as a spiritual institution. It is a union of two people in which they take a pledge to be with one another for the rest of their lives. Though the concept of marriage is more or less the same across cultures, the rituals are different for every culture throughout the world. A Hindu marriage especially has a whole lot of rituals which have to be followed closely for the marriage to be deemed complete. Not just the bride and the bridegroom participate in it, the entire families of both of them are involved in the ceremony and have significant roles to play. Every member of the family has to become a significant part of one or the other ritual.
Among the popular rituals of a Hindu marriage are the sindoor daan, wearing of the mangalsutra by the bride and the most important of all, the Saat Phere. Saat Phere is the most significant ritual of Hindu marriage. In this ritual, the couple walks seven rounds around the sacred fire and takes seven most sacred vows which both the bride and groom must follow for the entire life.
A Hindu marriage is not considered solemnised without following this ritual of Saat Phere. Like the seven notes of music, seven colours of the rainbow, seven seas and seven islands, etc. the couple seeks to be together for the next seven births by taking these seven rounds, the 'Saat Phere'. Here is what is the significance of 'saat phere' or the seven vows in a marriage. Read on about the elaborate meaning with mantras of saat phere.
