Phera is circling around fire, where groom leads bride in first three phere and bride leads groom in last phera. Each Phera is connected with Dharma, Artha, Kama & Moksha as per hindu culture. The bride and the groom, with their garments tied, stand up and make four circles around the sacred fire, each for the four goals of human life - Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. The priest chants verses from the scriptures asking the couple to repeat them.
