Arya Samaj has a secular heart which is vast and is filled with love and compassion for humanity. We at Arya Samaj Mandir In Agra practice equality among people and accordingly serve the community in the Vedic ways. Arya Samaj was founded by Swami Dayanand Saraswati way back on 10 April 1875 and since then the Samaj has spread over Indian and the world extensively and is in the forefront of social reforms especially in the sphere of Indian Hindu wedding. Like Swami Dayanand Saraswati preached, we reject the practice of idol worship while promoting the belief in natural elements and the One God concept.
In a world where hatred for other communities reign supreme in the mind of society members, Arya Samaj shines as a beacon of equality and oneness and accordingly encourage the union of couples from inter cast or inter religion via Arya Samaj wedding. Arya Samaji weddings are conducted in the most simplistic manner and are done with the chanting of mantras from the 4 Vedas and in the presence of 5 natural elements water, fire, earth, sky and wind.
