HUSBAND IS 11TH CHILD – PART 2

We have looked at the salient features of Hindus’ Wedding Mantras yesterday. Here are some more interesting points in the 47 mantras Hymn RV 10-85:-

Christian church weddings copied the words from the Rig Veda and repeat them at all church weddings. Read the following mantras and you will understand them better:-

“Live you two here, be not parted,

Enjoy the full length of life,

Sporting with your sons and grandsons,

Rejoicing in your own abode”. 10-85-42

Before Wedding and After Wedding 

humour from magazines

“Here may affection increase well with children ;

In this home be watchful in ruling the household.

With this thy husband completely unite thyself;

And then both , GROWING OLD, address the assembly”. 10-85-27

***

Chariot procession

“May Pushan lead thee from by the hand

May Asvins convey thee in their chariot”t 10-85-26

***

Greetings from the crowd

“Most blissful is this bride. Come you

All together here and see her,

And wish her every good fortune

And then return to your home “.

This greeting  is in Sangam Tamil Verses Aka Nanuru 86 and 136.

Hindu brides marry Four Times!

There is a strange passage in the Rig Veda 10-85 saying

that here is your fourth bridegroom:–

“Soma (moon) took her first of all

Thereafter the Gandharva guarded her,

And thy third protector was Agni ,

And the son of man is thy fourth” 10-85-40

The first three husbands are symbols of strength, beauty and youthfulness and the fourth is this bridegroom”.

All Hindu marriages happened when the girl was a teenager. For instance. Tamil heroine Kannaki was 12 year old and the hero Gopal (Kovalan) was 16 year old when they were married according to Tamil epic Silappadikaram. Rama and Sita were also married very young.

Heart and Heart

All over the world we see two heart symbols for lovers. Valentine day cards and Greeting stamps issued by UK, US and other countries have these symbols too. It came from the Rig Veda:-

“May the universal Devas 

and Apas join our HEARTS together

so may Matarisvan, Dhaatri and

Deshtri unite us both” —RV.10-85-47

(And the English word Heart is derived from Hrud in Snaskrit).

Mysterious mantras

As I explained in the first part Griffith honestly admitted the meaning was uncertain in four places. The last Goddess Deshtri (10-85-47) is unheard of in any other Hindu scriptures.

Mantra 10-85-35 mentioned Aasdsanam ,Visasanam,

Adhivikartanam . Griffith says the meaning is uncertain. One person explains it as  three parts of sari. Another idiot explains them as carcasses of sacrificed animals. Another idiot explained previous passages as butchering, cutting, severing etc. All these idiots never had been to a Hindu wedding. Actually the red colour sari called ‘Kuuraip Pudavai’ is given to the bride from the bridegroom’s family. She goes inside her private room with family members and women and come back ready for the final part of the wedding.

Even non vegetarians don’t serve meat on the day of weddings. This hymn helps us to identify the anti hindu feelings of the half -baked jokers.

Evil eye

Hindus fear evil eye until today. This wedding hymn is one small part of a Hindu wedding. There are other interesting and important ceremonies in Hindu wedding. One of them is Swing ceremony. Newly wedded couple are seated on a temporary swing set up in the wedding Pandal/thatched shed and colour rice balls are thrown in different directions by women. Each one comes forward take the rice balls and circle the heads of both bride and bridegroom with the balls and throw them in different directions. This will make the place dirty. To ward off the evil eye they do it and separately they do it with coconut, pumpkin etc. and they are broken into pieces at the end. Even in the hymn Kritiya (mantras 28, 29, 31 of 10-85), the evil spirit, is mentioned.

This ancient belief continues until today. In the big wedding crowd one or two may have evil eyes.

Golden chariot is mentioned in the hymn. This shows the wealth of the Vedic society. And one must read this with other hymns where gold jewelleries are mentioned. And the words used for gold are also numerous. It reflects a city life and it exposed the half baked jokers of Western world who said Vedic Hindus were nomads.

According to a Sanskrit sloka wedding has five parts.  I will explain them in another article.
