Arya Samaj marriages are honoured and appreciated in Hindu society. Arya Samaj marriages are based on Vedic beliefs and practices. The foundation of marriage is based on simplicity over extravaganza, spirituality over materialism, and devotion over idol worshipping. The marriages are conducted keeping the entire Hindu community as a whole and not divided by castes. That is why, Arya Samaj weddings open the doors to people belonging to different castes and religions and allow couples to get married without any bias of caste, religion, or social status. Moreover, Arya Samaj marriages are legally valid as per the Arya Samaj Marriage Validation Act 1937 and Hindu Marriage Act 1955 as they are carried out as per the Vedic traditions.

  • The ceremony is relatively short and lasts for about an hour and involves chanting Vedic mantras in the presence of fire and other elements that serve as witnesses to the wedding.
  • The mantras are translated into a language understandable to the couple so that they can relate to the meaning and significance of the mantras and apply them to their married life.
  • The rituals are performed as per the Vedic culture. The marriage is conducted in an hour and the marriage certificate is issued immediately as proof of their marriage. 
  • The couple pays the Arya Samaj Mandir Bangalore fees to the priest to conclude the marriage.
