Celestial Hindu Wedding
 
 
Sri Meenakshi Kalyanam symbolises the Celestial Marriage of Sri Siva as Sri Sundareswarã and Sri Sakthi as Sri Meenakshi. Sri Vishnu as the brother of Sakthi comes to "give away the bride" and Sri Brahmã performs the Smãrtha form of Vedic Marriage rituals. This is a representation of the unity of the four popular forms of Hindu faith, Saivam, Vaishnavam, Sãktham and the Vedic Smãrtha Sampradhãya. The same principle is seen in all stories in Hindu Purãnas to show that the several forms of practice of Hindu faith, though externally look different from each other in their philosophy, are united together and related to each other.
