Blessings prior to a Hindu Wedding

Several visitors from New York, Nevada, and California enjoyed the enchantment of the Aadheenam spiritual paradise.

Shivakummar and Shanta Dandappanavara, Sarojini and Natraj Narayanswami, and Aruna and Vikas Pabpat in front of the entrance to the Iraivan Temple.

Vena Chitturi and Ashwin Cattamanchi arrived with their families and friends for a special blessing prior to their wedding which will take place tomorrow on a beautiful property in Kilauea on Kauai. Following a wonderfully uplifting puja in the Kadavul Temple, they and their large wedding party toured the very beautiful Iraivan Temple.

Vena and Ashwin pose in front of the granite pillar depicting the Tirukalyanum or Hindu wedding. Immortalized in stone, one can see the groom leading his bride by the hand taking those seven steps around the homa fire -- symbolizing those seven sacred vows.

Families and guests pose with Vena and Ashwin in front of the entrance to the temple. A special invitation into the Guru Temple later awaited them where Ashwin and Vena received the special blessings of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
