Meaning of 7 Vows of marriage

What comes to your mind when you talk about big fat weddings in India? Maybe that royal khana, Band Baja Barat, a bunch of cocktails and of course the ‘Saat Pheras‘ how can we forget that? These pheras or vows are common in every Indian wedding without which the marriage looks incomplete. They are known as ‘Saptadi’ which are taken in front of the fire where you make promises to each other to live a happy life forever. But have you ever wondered what this Pheras means and what is their significance in Indian culture?

Let’s have a look at what each vow means in real life.

In the first Phera

तीर्थव्रतोद्यापन यज्ञकर्म मया सहैव प्रियवयं कुर्या:
वामांगमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रवीति वाक्यं प्रथमं कुमारी!।

यहां कन्या वर से कहती है कि यदि आप कभी तीर्थयात्रा को जाओ तो मुझे भी अपने संग लेकर जाना। कोई व्रत-उपवास अथवा अन्य धर्म कार्य आप करें तो आज की भांति ही मुझे अपने वाम भाग में अवश्य स्थान दें। यदि आप इसे स्वीकार करते हैं तो मैं आपके वामांग में आना स्वीकार करती हूं।

The couple prays to God and asks him to bless them with the strength to live together and to respect each other no matter whatever the situation is. They also promise each other to take care of each other’s need as well.

In the second Phera

पुज्यो यथा स्वौ पितरौ ममापि तथेशभक्तो निजकर्म कुर्या:
वामांगमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रवीति कन्या वचनं द्वितीयम!!

कन्या वर से दूसरा वचन मांगती है कि जिस प्रकार आप अपने माता-पिता का सम्मान करते हैं, उसी प्रकार मेरे माता-पिता का भी सम्मान करें तथा कुटुम्ब की मर्यादा के अनुसार धर्मानुष्ठान करते हुए ईश्वर भक्त बने रहें तो मैं आपके वामांग में आना स्वीकार करती हूँ।

The couple prays to god to give them the mental stability, spiritual strength as well as physical health so that could lead a happy life together. They also promise to each other that they are two bodies and soul from this day will always be there for each other in good as well as bad times.

 

In the third Phera

जीवनम अवस्थात्रये पालनां कुर्यात
वामांगंयामितदा त्वदीयं ब्रवीति कन्या वचनं तृतीयं!!

तीसरे वचन में कन्या कहती है कि आप मुझे ये वचन दें कि आप जीवन की तीनों अवस्थाओं (युवावस्था, प्रौढावस्था, वृद्धावस्था) में मेरा पालन करते रहेंगे, तो ही मैं आपके वामांग में आने को तैयार हूँ।

7 vows of hindu marriage

The couple pleads to god for wealth, prosperity as well as wisdom to live happily and peacefully with each other. Also, they ask God to give them enough strength and courage to share all the happiness and pain together.

In the fourth Phera

कुटुम्बसंपालनसर्वकार्य कर्तु प्रतिज्ञां यदि कातं कुर्या:
वामांगमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रवीति कन्या वचनं चतुर्थ:।।

कन्या चौथा वचन ये माँगती है कि अब तक आप घर-परिवार की चिन्ता से पूर्णत: मुक्त थे। अब जबकि आप विवाह बंधन में बँधने जा रहे हैं तो भविष्य में परिवार की समस्त आवश्यकताओं की पूर्ति का दायित्व आपके कंधों पर है। यदि आप इस भार को वहन करने की प्रतीज्ञा करें तो ही मैं आपके वामांग में आ सकती हूँ।

7 vows of hindu marriage

The bride walks before the boy and promises him that she will accept the death before him if it comes on his way. Apart from this, the couple also promises to each other to take care of and respect each other’s family as well.

In the fifth Phera

स्वसद्यकार्ये व्यहारकर्मण्ये व्यये मामापि मन्‍त्रयेथा
वामांगमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रूते वच: पंचमत्र कन्या!!

इस वचन में कन्या जो कहती है वो आज के परिपेक्ष में अत्यंत महत्व रखता है। वो कहती है कि अपने घर के कार्यों में, विवाहादि, लेन-देन अथवा अन्य किसी हेतु खर्च करते समय यदि आप मेरी भी मन्त्रणा लिया करें तो मैं आपके वामांग में आना स्वीकार करती हूँ।

7 vows of hindu marriage

The couple promise to each other to remain with each other all the time irrespective of the situation they face in their life. They promise each other to share joy and grief throughout their relationship as well. Besides this, they also pray to God to bless them with healthy kids and promises to nurture them well with good moral values.

In the sixth Phera

न मेपमानमं सविधे सखीना द्यूतं न वा दुर्व्यसनं भंजश्वेत
वामाम्गमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रवीति कन्या वचनं च षष्ठम!!

कन्या कहती है कि यदि मैं अपनी सखियों अथवा अन्य स्त्रियों के बीच बैठी हूँ तब आप वहाँ सबके सम्मुख किसी भी कारण से मेरा अपमान नहीं करेंगे। यदि आप जुआ अथवा अन्य किसी भी प्रकार के दुर्व्यसन से अपने आप को दूर रखें तो ही मैं आपके वामांग में आना स्वीकार करती हूँ।

7 vows of hindu marriage

The couple asks for a fit and healthy long-life filled with happiness, peace, contentment, and prosperity. They also exchange promises to each other that they will always stand next to them even in bad times.

In the last and final Phera

परस्त्रियं मातूसमां समीक्ष्य स्नेहं सदा चेन्मयि कान्त कूर्या।
वामांगमायामि तदा त्वदीयं ब्रूते वच: सप्तमंत्र कन्या!!

अन्तिम वचन के रूप में कन्या ये वर मांगती है कि आप पराई स्त्रियों को माता के समान समझेंगें और पति-पत्नि के आपसी प्रेम के मध्य अन्य किसी को भागीदार न बनाएंगें। यदि आप यह वचन मुझे दें तो ही मैं आपके वामांग में आना स्वीकार करती हूँ।

Meaning of 7 Vows

The couple prays to God for loyalty, togetherness, better understanding and unconditional love between their relationship. They also promise each other to do every possible thing for each other whenever required to make the holy relationship last long.

How To Dress For A Career In Law?

Expectations. We all have them. No matter the topic, our expectations are robust and unwavering – which is good news, really, because that means we’re a discerning bunch capable of spotting a fraud a mile off. We know what things should look like and if they don’t, we raise an eyebrow. Expectations are therefore necessarily great, for reasons of protecting our own interests. This is nothing new, of course. Charles Dickens knew Expectations to be great and wrote a book about it. Although, I can’t seem to remember the title (haha – no really, that was a joke, don’t lose faith in me just yet!).

Back to the point. Expectations are essential. They tell us what fits the bill, and what doesn’t. If you want to be successful in life, you have to give the people what they want – not what you think is the right way or what you think they need, but what they desire. For example, if you were to walk into a car dealership to see a poodle wearing a sash that read “salesperson of the month, ask me anything” you might try your luck elsewhere. And if you were to walk into a law firm to see your hired legal practitioner playing indoor golf while in beachwear and a cape, you might think “oops, my mistake” and seek representation elsewhere. With that in mind,

Let’s look at how to dress for a career in law (see this law firm to get more of an idea of what to expect in the law industry).

A wardrobe of options

We’ll get to the differences between expected ‘legal attire’ for men and women in a moment. First, a note on changing clothes backstage – because you may need to do it (a lot). Depending on your planned meetings for the day, and depending on whether you’re going to be in the office, in court, visiting clients, or any combination of the above, you’re going to have to change your clothes. Keep spare sets of clothes in a backroom or even in your car. You won’t regret it.

Try to gauge it – ask yourself, who am I meeting? Do I know them well, and if so, how do they normally dress? This doesn’t mean you have to mimic their style but if they are very casual it could give you a bit more leeway – the likelihood is they won’t expect you to turn up in a three-piece suit.

However, if you’re unsure, it is probably best to overdress than underdress, as dressing smartly has a whole set of positive connotations in the world of law – you mean business, and you want your clothing to reflect this. You want people to take you seriously, which they might struggle too if you rock up in an old, stained t-shirt and short-shorts.

When it comes to hair, makeup and piercings it’s best to keep it pretty simple – neutral is the way forward here, and if you think about it, how many lawyers do you know with rainbow hair and facial piercings? Unfortunately, you are quite restricted in this sense but you can always save your wackier styles for the weekend.

Let’s start with the obvious. Suits and blouses and business shoes. That’s home. Avoid halter tops and stretch pants and other casual wear. Knit tops, V-neck sweaters with a blouse, and turtlenecks or cardigans may also be acceptable as long as, again, the style is not too casual.

Men’s legal attire

For men, stick to collars. Avoid tee-shirts. Avoid denim. Avoid anything in the casual or smart-casual category, including sports shoes, shorts, and anything sporting a large logo. This pretty much means stick to suits and business shoes, but slacks and khakis paired with V-neck sweaters or cardigans work too.
