How should the Kanyadaan rite be carried out?


  • In order to ensure that the Kanyadaan, which is a ceremony that is both spiritual and virtuous, is carried out in an appropriate manner, there are numerous considerations that need to be taken into account, including the following:

  • Fasting or not eating before Kanyadaan is an important and important part of the ceremony. Either the mother or someone in the family who is like a mother doesn't drink or eat until Kanyadaan. People have made a few changes to the ceremony, though. People now drink water till the Kanyadaan is finished.

  • Hasta Milap, sometimes called Kanyadaan, is the ceremony that takes place. The right hand of the bride is taken by her father and given to the groom. The groom's right hand is placed over hers, as is more customary. This is to implore him to consent wholeheartedly to his daughter becoming his spouse and accept her as his partner. Additionally, the father obtains a vow from the husband that he will treat his girl as an equal partner in his lifetime and all of his ambitions, and that he will take care of her.

  • After this, the mother of the bride pours holy water into their hands. The way the water flows makes it go through their daughter and into the groom's hand. In the end, the Kanyadaan ritual moves forward when prayers are said to the holy deities. After the sacred water, things like flower petals, fruits, betel nuts, etc. are placed on the palm of the pair. With it, Pundits chant the mantra, which marks the end of the ritual.
