Is the term for a sacred purifying ritual in Hinduism that involves a fire ceremony. It is a ritual of sacrifice made to the fire god Agni. After lighting a Havan Kund (sacrificial fire), objects such as fruits, honey, or wooden goods are put into the sacred fire. If there are any spirits that are evil around you or even inside you they get burned off in the sacred fire. It is believed that this sacrifice will bring health, happiness, luck and prosperity.
Arya Samaj marriage rituals are very simple and straight. Based on Vedic principles, all the hymns spelled during marriages are explained to the bride and groom. The marriage is just like Hindu marriage, marriage is centered around fire and is observed as the transition of wedding couple from Brahmacharya to Grihastha Ashram.
Namakarana is the naming ceremony in Hinduism and a Sanskara to name a baby. According to the Grhya Sutras, Namakarana ceremony is typically performed on the tenth or the twelfth day after birth. Some texts suggest the naming ceremony be done on the first new moon or full moon day after the 10th day of birth.
Janamdin Puja is generally conducted on the date of birth and is recommended as it is believed to increase one’s life. It is also said that when you conduct this pooja, prosperity is likely to come your way and happiness fills your life and growth in terms of career and studies is likely to happen.
GRIHA PRAVESH HAVAN
Special Puja to be done by a couple on their Marriage Anniversary to seek the blessings of the Divine for a long, happy and blissful married life. During Puja for Marriage Anniversary, Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti are worshipped. Just as Shiva is Shav (a lifeless being) without Shakti, in marriage one is incomplete without the other. Wedding anniversary is not just a milestone in the life journey of a couple but an opportunity to thank Shiva and Shakti for the blessings of partnership. The Puja helps in enhancing bonding, trust and compatibility between couples and imparts long life and health to them. The Puja is also done for seeking the blessings of peace, joy and fulfillment of wishes in a relationship and for wellbeing of entire family in general.
Pravachan, or Pravacana, is a Sanskrit term for any exposition of a doctrine or treatise, or to the recitation of a scripture or text in Jainism and Hinduism traditions.
Dharma preaches that the purpose of human birth is God-realisation. The religious scriptures therefore impart guidance on how to undertake spiritual practice so as to be able to get closer to God in every incident of life, right from birth till death. Sanskars should be performed to get closer to God in the sixteen rituals in life from conception to marriage. These sanskars later help in improving spiritual practice.
SUKH SHANTI HAVAN
Power yoga, on the other hand, is a vinyasa- or ashtanga-style, flow yoga; power yogis move quickly between poses, but the poses often focus on building strength rather than flexibility. (Any type of yoga will improve your flexibility; I’m speaking in relative terms here.)
