Religious Beliefs

One of the most important rituals during a Hindu wedding in India is the Mangalsutra ritual. After promising to live and cherish each other for 7 lives, the groom ties the Mangalsutra around the bride’s neck. Mangalsutras are a symbol of ‘Suhag’ (a woman whose husband is still alive) and hence every married Indian woman wears it.

Based on astrology, the gold in the Mangalsutra is under the influence of the Guru planet. It is a symbol of gold, prosperity, wealth and knowledge in your marital life. The black beads are considered as a symbol of Saturn. The planet Saturn represents durability and integrity in the relationship. So with the combination of Guru and Saturn, the Mangalsutra acts as a symbol of your future relationship.
