Maharashtra wedding tradition rituals #7
What really Vivah homa and Satapadi means?
In Vivah homa, a stone is kept near the west of fire (Homekund) and a pot containing water is kept to the northeast. A pot full of ghee is also kept nearby. The pandit then asks the bridal couple to take an oath of the marriage. The groom then prays to the fire and asks to make them pure and away from evil. They also ask for children and their long lives.
Now in Satapadi, the bride touches seven beetle nuts by her right foot for holy blessings. Beetle nuts are usually placed on top of the rice. So on the last part, the bride then puts her right foot on a grindstone. The groom holds her hand and supports her in this. This basically symbolizes that in future she needs to be strong like stone and her husband will always support her.
