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.

Magic in Hindu, Sumer and Egyptian Culture

This article is about the Hindu beliefs of burying hair and bones at the place of an enemy to eliminate him/her and hanging ugly faces to ward off evil eye (Dhrsti) that were found in Egypt, Greece and Sumer.

Western “Scholars” used to project Greeks as advanced in modern thinking or philosophical thinking. It is true only after they came into contact with the Hindus.  We see it from the period of Pythagoras and Socrates, who came into the world only after the Upanishad period. Greeks, Egyptians and Sumer people had similar beliefs about magic, witchcraft and ghosts which was in the Vedas at least one thousand years before them. There are of similarities in the Atharva Veda, Sumerian and Egyptian literature. I will take only one set of beliefs for comparison in this article:


How to destroy enemies or evil spirits?

All the ancient people believed that they can eliminate their enemies or evil spirits through curses. They also believed that they can destroy the statues or dolls of their enemies and eliminate them. They thought that they can bury something like hair, magical plates or talismans at the residence of their enemies and subdue them.

Kavachams are a genre of hymns where in god is prayed to protect every part of the body. In addition to it, they pray for the elimination of their enemies and counter act the enemy’s black magic activities. The most famous kavacham of Tamils is Kantha Shasti Kavacham which prays to God Skanda, son of Shiva. It specifically refers to the enemies act of burying dolls, cat’s hair, bones, hair and nails of children etc. The devotee of Skanda prays to neutralise such things and act against all the ghosts, spirits, ghouls etc. The basis for such belief is in the Atharva Veda (10-1-18 and 19). This shows that it is an age old belief; may be several thousand years old.

This belief spread to different parts of the world when Vedic Hindus spread to different parts of the world.

To ward off the evil eye, an ugly figure was hung in all the palaces or houses of the Hindus. This is called Dhrsti (Evil Eye) doll. This is found in all other cultures.

Sumerian beliefs

Magic was used to drive away demons, to undo the bad effects of certain sinful actions, to counteract the potential effects of certain portended effects, to increase sexual potency, to secure the favours of a loved one, to quieten squalling infants and to frustrate the activity of hostile sorcerers

(All these are in Hindu mantras/incantations)

Sumer people wore ugly figures similar to ugly Dhrsti dolls of Hindus. ‘Pazuzu’ was Sumer demon. They hung it at the entrance of the houses like Hindus. Hattic and Hittites cultures were sources for all this belief. They were Kshatriyas who migrated from India.

Akkadian had ‘namburbu’ incantation rituals to ward off evil things. Some aspects of these were done during night time like Hindu black magic rituals. Hindus did this at the dead of night.

Sumerian incantations are similar to Atharva Veda incantations/mantras. (I have already shown that even the most popular Valentine day symbol of an ‘arrow piercing the heart’ is from the Atharva Veda).

Egyptian Beliefs

The magical rituals that are most easily understood involved the deflection of enemies by cursing formulae (similar to Vedas). These are accompanied by ritual destruction of wax or clay figures (Even now it is done by magicians in Kerala) Ritual devised for vanquishing cosmic enemies Apep and political enemies, also private individuals, were essentially similar in character. Some Greco-Egyptian spells invoke evil gods and demons to appear in a person’s nightmares.

Magic was used for benign purpose as well. A love potion was given to wanted man or woman with incantations (like in Athrva Veda). Talismans, amulets and Lucky charms were also used to bring fortune to the wearer. Huge quantities of amulets representing gods and goddesses, parts of the body replicas were recovered from Egyptian burial sites. Magical spells written on papyrus were also used as amulets. Hindus also did this. They put such magical spells inside the metal containers and hung on their necks.

Isis was the goddess frequently addressed. Bes was a curious dwarf whose hideous features personify the supernatural world’s mixture of frightfulness and beneficence.

Bes’ ugliness wards off evil. He appears with a large bearded and barely human face, a thick body, short arms and short bandy legs. He wears a plumed crown and often wields a short sword. He possesses a lion’s mane, usually has his mouth open and tongue protruding. He is also drawn as a dancing musician.  Bes was absorbed by Greco – Roman culture. The Greeks depicted him in strong ithyphallic (erect penis) guise.

(This can be compared with the Dhrsti doll of Hindus or Ayyanar/Sastha, village God with sword and protruding tongue at villages in South India).

Bes was a protective deity, usually portrayed as a hideous but jovial dwarf. It was revered as the god of pleasure and entertainment and as a protector of the family, especially of children and women in child birth

hecate 2

Hekate in Greece

Hekate is the corrupted form of Sakti in Sanskrit. The goddess of sorcery, who resided in the Underworld.  There she oversaw the ritual purifications as well as magical invocations. Witches, such as Medea, drew power from the goddess. Hekate would sometimes appear on earth at night time, especially at cross roads, accompanied by baying hounds.

(Hindus fear to cross junction of three roads, particularly at night time,  and they believe evil spirits occupy those places. Greeks also believed in it)

Artistic representations show her carrying torches. Where paths met, a triple figure of Hecate rose from masks placed at the junction. Offerings were left at road side shrines and at junctions. In some parts of Greece she was worshipped by occult bands and moon worshippers.

(Vedic Hindus believed in Path way god Pushan. In South Indian villages lot of road side shrines are there for village gods and goddesses.)
