The Arya Samaj was founded by Swami Dayananda Saraswati in 1875 to rid the Hindu religion of the extensive ritualization that had crept in. The Arya Samaj holds the status of a religious denomination and any person who is not a Muslim, Parsi or a Christian can marry in an Arya Samaj mandir. A shaadi conducted in accordance with Arya Samaj customs focuses more on legalistic aspects of matrimony instead of the rituals and inane customs. The only requirements for an Arya Samaj matrimony are proper documentations and the presence of two witnesses.
Instead of the parents, the bride and the groom must be the willing participants to the matrimony and must be of legal age. A marriage ceremony begins with the registration followed by the Jaimala and the ‘Madhuparka’ ceremony where the bride feeds honey and sweets to the groom. This is followed by the Pratigya Mantra where the groom promises to take care of his life partner for all eternity. Then comes Kesh mochan where the groom unties the braids of the bride in a tender loving manner. Finally comes the Hriday Sparsh where the newlyweds touch each other's hearts to signify warmth and tenderness in their everyday affairs. A remarkable feature is that the entire Arya Samaj shaadi can be completed within the span of a couple of hours.
