Hindu Wedding Ritual


"If one would find happiness and security, one must seek for peace."

"Hinduism," means simply the religion of the people of India, and is called by Hindus the Sanatana Dharma or "eternal Dharma." Dharma can be translated as "righteousness," "law" and "duty" and refers to the right order of the world. Hinduism has no single founder and its origins go back into the earliest history of South Asia. Its first known scriptures are the Vedas or "knowledge." Hindus worship God in many forms and accept belief in reincarnation and karma, the results of good and evil actions.

Correctly intoning the sacred syllable "AUM," here written in Sanskrit, has been understood by Hindus for centuries to evoke the totality of all being.
