Kansar Bhakshan – hindu wedding tradition- bride & groom’s first meal as married couple
As per Hindu Wedding Tradition, on the day of the wedding, bride and groom both required to have fasting during their indian wedding ceremony.
During wedding ceremony in india, the fasting is essentially done in honor of this puja and Agni Devata – Fire, indelible bond between the bride and groom being bound in the holy matrimony. Also, in order to prevent the bride and groom from facing any kind of stomach infections, they are made to fast.
Kansar – traditional indian sweet made from wheat flour, sugar and ghee is made by mother of bride. During some of the other hindu religious wedding tradition, the bride and groom must mix all the elements together with their hands in order to make it even sweeter.
In today’s indian wedding tradition, most people replace Kansar with appropriate other indian sweets of bride and groom’s taste.
Bride’s mother holds the Kansar – Sweet Thali (plate) and then Bride and Groom feed each other one by one for four times. Hindu priest asks them to feed the last round – fifth round to feed each other simultaneously. This concludes the Kansar Bhakshan ceremony. Sometimes, to make this ceremony little more fun, bride’s sister/s add some salt into one piece of sweet or one portion of Kansar and bride feeds that portion to the groom.
Towards the end of kansar bhakshan ceremony, groom holds bride’s mother’s Saree and demands for gift. It is customary for bride’s mother to give some valuable to gift to groom in order for him to release her saree. Bride’s mother blesses for bride and groom for their happy married life.
After that, all the elderly married couple, comes on wedding mandap to bless the married couple.
