Arya Samaj Mandir In Aligarh
Arya samaj mandir in Aligarh is established by the believers and followers of Arya Samaji Principles handed over by the founder and great sage Swami Dayanand Saraswati. All customs and practices are followed and exercised as per the norms laid over by the Great Vedas and weddings in particular is solemnized by learned Acharyas/Pandits under Vedic rules. The Arya Samaj here in Aligarh is progressive in thought and reformative in actions as we follow and support the reforms suggested by the Great Swmi. All our services including Weddings and other Hindu ceremonies and rituals are carried out in the simplest manner and we strictly denounce the show of wealth on these occasions.
Like Swami Dayanand Saraswati, we reject the worship of idols and only consider and accept the five natural elements, fire, water, wind, earth and sky as supreme powers. Our ceremonies are conducted in the presence of the above elements and are accompanied by chants of Mantras from the 4 Great Vedas. Among the many services we consider Wedding as the foremost social service as it concerns the union and future of two souls and we do our best to bond two people in matrimony in the most auspicious manner but without the glitz of the conventional weddings. This is our way of concluding marriages in the most inexpensive manner so people from lower rungs of the economical ladder are able to marry with all wedding rituals without spending money.
Besides conducting comprehensive Hindu Weddings under Arya Samaji rules, we also perform Naam Karan, Upanyayan, Mundan, Annaprashan, Grih Pravesh, Antyeshi and Havans with all religious and ceremonial fervor. All rituals and ceremonies performed by us are headed by qualified and certified Pandits under Arya Samaji rules.
