Marriage

Marriage is an experience of unity in diversity. A process of realization of the Oneness. Marriage is based on friendship.


Beginning of an eternal journey:

  • Sakha saptipadi bhava – be my friend who walks these seven steps together.   
  • Sakhyam te gameyam – may I aspire to your friendship.   
  • Sakhyam temayoshah; sakhyam me ma yoshtyas – your friends are mine, my friends are yours

The journey begins with seven steps around the fire, each step is symbolic to the seven chakras in human body, these chakras are the seven centers to connect with the cosmos.

1. Together we will share the responsibilities of home and children

2. Together we will develop mental, physical and spiritual strength

4. Together we will fill over hearts with great joy, peace and happiness

3. Together we will prosper and share our worldly goods

5. Together we will raise strong and virtuous children

6. Together we will remain faithful, lifelong partners.

7. Together we will cherish each other and our families in sorrow and happiness.

Action

Vision is the ability to see the future with imagination and wisdom, it is a mental image we create for our self.

A vision is born from our collective thoughts and everything around us is a manifestation of our collective thoughts. A clear vision helps us remain focused on our journey and helps us choose the most sustainable path how does this vision operate?

Take up one idea.

Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.

Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.

A thought is The Source of Everything that is!

Thoughts from our Head become words in our Mouth, these words translate into actions through our Hands.

Repeated actions become habits, these habits build our character through which our Personality is defined.

We are all masters of our destiny, We just don’t accept the reality that we are exactly where our thoughts directed us. We must act responsible and our character will decide our destiny.

Understanding Sustainable Development Goals!

Society

Who am I? A conformist or a non-conformist?
Where do you see yourself?

Fact : There is no different society than the neighbors around me, the four people I see around me are the society, how I treat them and look at them will be REFLECTED back to me. Society is just a reflection of my inner thoughts, what I sow in my heart will ripe back to me from the society.

I must be the change I want to see.
