Hindu Wedding Quotes

“As you give, so shall you receive. Every day as you have a chance to give to each other, give happiness. Sorrow brings more sorrow. Your long life ahead will surely be a success if you remember this”.

“As you each tend to your daily duties, don’t forget the importance of spending time together and expanding the love you feel today.”

“Today two people become one. It doesn’t mean she gives up everything to become you, or he gives up all for her. It means balance. If you remember this, you will always be happy.”

Katha Upanishad - Invocation
Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the fruit of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge! May what we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill feeling toward each other!
Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Prayer to Lord Vishnu
After crossing seven steps with me thus, you should become my friend. I too have become your friend now. I will never discard this friendship and you should also not do that. Let us be together always. Let us resolve to do things in life in the same manner and tread the same path. Let us lead a life by liking and loving each other, having good hearts and thoughts, and enjoying the food and our strong points together. Let us have undivided opinions. We will perform the vrithas united. Let us have the same and joint desires. I will be Sama; you will be Rig. Let me be the Heaven; you be the Earth. Let me be the Shukla and you be its wearer. Let me be the mind and you its spokesman. With these qualities, you be my follower. You the sweet-tongued, come to me to get good male children and wealth. - From Documents and Designs
