Sita Kalyanam At Chinmaya Maruti

Ranjani Saigal
04/18/2019

Shringaram Shithinandini Viharane” – Rama looking at Sita is the epitome of Shrinagara Rasa

Lord Rama and Mother Sita’s meeting and marriage is one of the most ancient romantic tales of all times. The marriage of Rama and Sita can be considered to be the most important turning point in the story of the Ramayana, the tale that has served as a guiding light for billions over thousands of years. Hindu Weddings today are based on the wedding of Sita and Rama as described in the Ramayana. The marriage of Rama and Sita is considered to be the union of the Atma and the Paramatma.
The promise of Rama that he would never look at any woman other than Sita is considered to be one of the most romantic moments of the Ramayana.

Each year during Ramanavami, temples around the world re-enact the beautiful scene of the marriage of Rama and Sita. It is particularly popular in the South where the wedding is performed on Utsava Murthies of Rama and Sita. The event is a big crowd puller at the Chinmaya Maruti temple where Sita Kalyanam was held on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

The event started with a Gauri Pooja. Sita’s blessing from mother Gauri is an important part of the Ramayana. This was followed by the Malai Mattral, Reciting of Pravaram and Mangalya Daranam.

The Utsava Moorthis were taken outside and little children (students of Deepa Srinath) performed the Malai Mattral with a little dance. Amrita Pai, the star pupil of Smt. Aparna Balaji sang several songs as the event progressed. Nritya and Sangeeta Seva was offered to Lord Rama and Mother Sita.

The attendees were treated to a feast in a south Indian style by seating them and having a Banana Leaf shaped Paper Plate. The sumptuous meal included the sumptuous Vada Payasa menu a critical part of a successful wedding ceremony.
