The bride is made to step on a grinding stone
which signifies that the bride’s mind should be rock-like,
unperturbed by the trials and tribulations of life.
The Tamil Brahmin wedding rituals are based on
the four Vedas - Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva.
Some prefer to give a modern touch to the rituals to
make them more relatable. Unlike other weddings, for Tamilians,
the spiritual symbolism of each ritual remains
the most important. It may not be all pomp and circumstance,
but it surely is personal.
