vEDik LIFESTYLE IS ABOUT
INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM TO
HARMONIOUSLY & MUTUALLY SUPPORTIVELY CO-EXIST
WITH ALL CREATIONS
BUT WITH
RULES AND REGULATIONS OF

DHARm

When one studies vED one realizes the entire creation is designed and created by vED which is the sNskRUt word meaning the knowledge of sciences of creations and life. pRjaapti bRH`maa-DEv who is the manifested from of rjs guAN of mHaa-maayaa shk`ti (creative power of Creator bRH`m) and who creates all creations that exists in any bRHmaaND (universe) needed vED to start and continue creating all that Creator bRH`m wished to manifest in infinite ruup (forms) and naam (names). If bRHmaa-DEv ever lost vED then he looses to power and knowledge to create. This is the reason viSHANu-DEv had to take the 1st avtaar as mts`y (fish) to retrieve vED stolen from bRHmaa-DEv by the 2 asuraao called mDHu and kEEtBH.

vivaaH = marraige is the 14th of the 15th sNskaar that a person living by the rules of  veD undergoes to live in gRUHsth-aaSRm as ordained by sv-DHARm meaning the DHARm an individual has to uphold to co-exist harmoniously and mutually supportively in a human society.

DHARm-shaasTR in sNskRUt language means SCIENCES OF DHARm. DHARm is one of the shk`ti (powers) of Creator bRH`m. This shk`ti was named DHARm by above mentioned bRH`maa-DEv because DHARm was born as a maans-pTR (mind-born son) of bRHmaa-DEv. This happened after bRH`maa-DEv had completed his initial creations at the beginning of bRH`maa-day after the expiry of bRH`maa-DEv 's night. During bRH`maa-DEv 's night all previous days creations attain ly meaning absorption in bRH`maa-DEv  and stop functioning. Each bRH`maa-day and night are of 4.32 billion years duration.

After creating the initial creation bRH`maa-DEv  thought how HE was going to feed and maintain sustenance of all HE created. And as soon as HE thought this, DHARm shk`ti was born of bRH`maa-DEv 's mind. This is whole account is very beautifully explained in vraaH puraaAN. DHARm thus is ordained by bRH`maa-DEv  to provide sustenance to all HIS creations.

And DHARm has a complete science with which he does his ordained function in the universe. DHARm has ordained this science so that all creations can live by the rules and regulations of this DHARm-shaasTR meaning SCIENCE OF DHARm.

 For those who will not live by the rules and regulations of DHARm-shaasTR, DHARm has ordained that they will suffer poverty, disharmony and non-co-existence that living is classified as paapi kARm life (sinful life) And paapi kARm has to have paapi-kARm-fl meaning one has to suffer DuKH (pain and suffering) for not living by DHARm-shaasTR....

 

In current life understanding, DHARm SCIENCE is like Micro-Soft operating system for computers. Without this operating system no computers made for this operating system will work. Also all the software has to be made to work in this operating system. Similarly, DHARm is the operating system of life of all creations. And life will not operate properly or will operate with errors and faults if the life is not ruled by DHARm's SCIENCE.

veDik vivaaH = MARRAIGE
FOLLOWS vivaaH sNskaar
WHICH FOLLOWS ALL
RULES AND REGULATIONS OF
DHARm
PRESCRIBED IN vED

So when a vivaaH is not lived by DHARm-shaasTR, vivaaH will falter. And in vED, the entire science of vivaaH is stipulated in great detail by bRH`maa-DEv and passed on for implementation in life by rushio and munio who are sages who are fully versed in vED and living by veD and DHARm and whose ordained function is to serve all creations by teaching vED.

vivaaH in vED is also stipulated as 15th of 16th sNskaar a human being has to undergo from birth to death in any life-journey in sNsaar. And this sNskaar has been prescribed in great detail. Furthermore, vivaaH is the primary institution that supports and sustains gRUHsth-aaSRm. And all the 3 other aaSRm of a life-journey are sustained and supported by gRUHsth-aaSRm.

On this PVAF website many articles have been published about vivaaH as knowledge sharing TO MAKE YOUR MARRIED LIFE GROW HAPPIER EVERY DAY..... 

And vED and its DHARm are eternal and ever functional as both are shkti of Creator bRH`m....even in the present time era that we live in called kli-yug....In kli-yug upholding and living by DHARm is at its lowest level in the 4-yug time cycle of 4.32 years duration. There are 1000 4-yug cylce in a bRH`maa-day of 4.32 billion year duration mentioned above....

And the example of above eternal and ever functional status of vED and DHARm in this creation has been recently noted among the citizens of USA who live veDik lifestyle....This current generation of these people living veDik lifestyle in USA is favouring the practice of vivaaH sNskaar in finding and getting married in USA.....

Please enlighten yourself about what is happening in USA to prove that vED and DHARm has to prevail in life for creation to live in harmony and supporting mutually...

While you click on the next line to read the news item of how youths in USA living veDik lifestyle are preferring to get marraige through vivaaH sNskaar, please remember the vivaaH sNskaar is described on vED page along with a lot of information on vED and DHARm.....please do visit and with that knowledge MAKE YOUR TOMORROW HAPPIER THAN TODAY....



 

MARRIAGE AMONG CURRENT GENERATIONS OF USA INDIANS ADHERE TO
 RULES AND REGULATIONS
vivaaH sNskaar ...

New York Times, USA: Hinduism Today:  August 23, 2005:

One Saturday in July, a few weeks after he finished his medical residency at Brown University, Ronak Shah married Kunal Patel, another doctor, in a union that embraced every ritual of the Hindu nuptial script. However, the venerable South Asian tradition of arranged marriages has taken on an American reinvention.

Dr. Patel's mother and father had a hand in their daughter's selection. They were in touch with friends and cousins for suggestions about whom she should marry. But Dr. Patel was free to reject them all.

Less than a decade ago, the decision about whom a South Asian woman here might marry was still often left to her parents.


 

But recently, purely arranged marriage has evolved into a new culture of what might be called "assisted" marriage, in which parents are free to arrange all they like--allowing their sons and daughters choice among nominees.

Some of the impetus for assisted marriage is coming from young people themselves--men and women who have delayed marriage into their late 20's and early 30's, said Ayesha Hakki, the editor of Bibi, a South Asian bridal and fashion magazine.

As Madhulika Khandelwal, a historian who has studied Indians here, said, "Young people don't want to make individual decisions alone."

In large part, Ms. Khandelwal said, the transition from formally arranged marriage reflects social changes in India itself, where assisted marriage is now common among the educated, urban middle class.

That is because, she said, there are fewer extended-family living arrangements and more women pursuing higher education. The purpose of assisted marriage here is not simply to preserve Indian cultural identity, but more pointedly to maintain class, religious and regional identities in a place where they might easily be diffused, those who have studied the Indian diaspora say.

Arranged and assisted marriage have left Indians with the lowest rate of intermarriage of any major immigrant group in the United States. Among South Asian men and women here in their 20's and 30's, the vast majority of whom are foreign born, fewer than 10 percent marry outside their ethnic group, according to an analysis of the Census Bureau's 2003 American Community Survey conducted for this article.
