Fiji Hindi Wedding Ceremony



Wednesday, November 30, 2016

According to The Fiji Islands Magazine just over 38% of the population of Fiji are Hindus. The Hindu marriage ceremony begins months in advance. According the Islands Magazine, the most important rite on the wedding day is the Agni parinaya. This takes place when the couple walk around the fire seven times. They also take seven steps guided by seven white lines drawn on the ground. 


At each step they make the following seven promises to each other:

 

The first step to nourish one another;
The second step to grow in strength as one;
The third step to preserve our wealth;
The fourth step to share our joys and sorrows;
The fifth step to care for our children;
The sixth step to be together forever; and
The seventh step to remain lifelong friends, the perfect halves to make a perfect whole.
The union is now unbreakable.
