In Hindu Marriages The Bride and Groom pledge and declare to all present that they have accepted one another voluntarily. The bride and groom walk to seven sacred steps around ‘AGNI’ (FIRE).
For each step they take a vow :-
The first step for health, the second step for stability, the third step for wealth, the fourth step for happiness in life, the fifth step for progeny, the sixth step for long wedding life, And the seventh , thus my life, my love, half my mortal soul, thus may we have each other’s companionship forever.
These seven steps called ‘SAPTAPADI’ in hindu religion. This is called wishful prayers for someone with fondling love and wish them be auspicious on this spiritual union.The rich and meaningful ceremony of the Hindu marriage (Kalyâṇa Mahotsavam of the temples) is thus carried out in concert with sacred Veda Mantras. The bride and bridegroom should enunciate clearly the Veda mantras and reflect on their meanings during the different stages of the marriage ceremony. This way, they can be sure of a long, happy and prosperous married life and play their appropriate role in society to the fullest extent.
"Mangalam Bhagavan Vishnum
All auspiciousness to God Vishnu
All auspiciousness to One who has Garuda as His flag
All auspiciousness to One who has eyes like the lotus flowers
And auspeciousness to Hari"
