The wedding between Meenakshi and Sundereshwara is not a typical wedding but a celestial wedding. This wedding is the outer expression of the cosmic union between Paramashiva and Parashakti – the Divine Masculine Consciousness and the Divine Feminine Consciousness – the union marking the establishment of individual consciousness into Supreme Consciousness, attaining the state of Paramadvaita – Oneness with Paramashiva. This wedding symbolizes the happening of life – Srishti in the cosmos. This celebration, this event of creation and creative expansion out of completion, is celebrated by every particle of this universe. This wedding is like the Big Bang, bringing everything to life and celebrating life.

On this special cosmic happening of Meenakshi Thirukalyanam, when the planetary alignment is perfect for re-creating the energy of this mighty cosmic union between Paramashiva and Parashakti in the form of Sundareshwara and Meenakshi, we urge you not just to be spectators or passive participants but to imitate this happening in your own life. Especially if you are married, this is a powerful golden chance for you to rekindle and reignite the proper context in your marriage, realign with the real purpose of your life and your relationship with your spouse, and renew the relationship by re-declaring the wedding vows, recommitting to your partner, and infusing this powerful energy into your marriage, infuse new life created during this auspicious ritual of Meenakshi Thirukalyanam when the entire cosmos is supporting you.

This grand cosmic celebration of Meenakshi Thirukalyanam, the wedding ceremony of Devi Meenakshi and Soma Sundareshwara Swami, symbolizes the Oneness experience of Paramadvaita, the experience of Paramashivoham – I am Paramashiva that Devi Meenakshi experienced in the state of deep surrender and love towards Him. This experience of cosmic union is the fruition of intense seeking from many births. This is the very purpose of our lives. Every relationship should lead us to this final goal of enlightenment. And when Oneness becomes the context and the goal of the most intimate human relationship of marriage, that marriage becomes a celebration and a path towards our liberation.

Two beings coming together, supporting each other to get liberated from the dependence on the other body; beyond that, liberating oneself from the idea that you are a body is divine marriage, Hindu marriage. Setting the proper context into your marriage and taking Devi Meenakshi’s and Sundareshwara Paramashiva’s blessings leads to a prosperous and fulfilling married life.

This auspicious muhurta of Meenakshi Thirukalyanam is an opportunity for all of the married couples out there to recognize your marriage as that between Meenakshi and Sundareshwara, cognize yourselves as their manifestations, and cognize the goal of your marriage as to achieve this Oneness experience within us and re-declare your commitment to your partner with this upgraded context of achieving complete completion within us with the help of your partner and creating a family that upholds dharma in society, progeny that is an asset and a blessing for society, and creating a home which is nothing less than the temple where Devi Meenakshi Parashakti and Sundareshwara Paramashiva themselves reside.

Following are the seven sacred vows that form the backbone of the Hindu wedding:

  1. First Vow: “Let us take the first step to provide our household a nourishing and pure diet, avoiding those foods injurious to healthy living.”
  2. Second Vow: “Let us take the second step to develop physical, mental, and spiritual powers.”
  3. Third Vow: “Let us take the third step to increase our wealth by righteous means and proper use.”
  4. Fourth Vow: “Let us take the fourth step to acquire knowledge, happiness, and harmony by mutual love and trust.”
  5. Fifth Vow: “Let us take the fifth step to be blessed with strong, virtuous, and heroic children.”
  6. Sixth Vow: “Let us take the sixth step to cultivate self-restraint and longevity.”
  7. Seventh Vow: “Let us take the seventh step to be true companions and remain lifelong partners by this wedlock.”

It is time for you to renew your seven sacred wedding vows again to bolt this deeper context into your relationship and give the relationship an upgraded new beginning, a breakthrough.
