“Akshatani, Suvarnani, Kramukai: Phala Samyutamu, Dampatyom Deerghmaayushymu, Brahma Grandhim Vidheeyathe”
Following ‘Thalambaralu,” “Brahma Knots’ (Brahma Gandhi) would be performed, in which a variety of items would be blended and tied to the upper section of the bride’s saree’s loose end. Yam, Turmeric Twig, Dates, Betel, and some change are among the things. This saree’s loose end would be fastened to the groom’s upper garment (Uthareeyamu). This is known as the Brahma Gandhi nerve, which connects the mother’s uterus to the baby’s navel. This link would last until the baby’s navel was cut after delivery. The elders prefer that the marriage be as strong as Brahma Grandhi, symbolising this nerve. Thus, “Brahma Knots.”
Yam: Because yam has the ability to grow indefinitely, it represents growth. If a small bit of this vegetable is sown, it will grow indefinitely. As a result, Yam is used in the expectation that the family will develop in terms of money, success, children, and so on.
Turmeric Twig: Turmeric symbolises fortune, health, and radiance. It is used in the hope of having handsome, upright, and wise offspring.
Dates: Because dates are a fruit that never degrades, it is anticipated that a marriage relationship will last forever.
Betel Leaves: Betel is a mixture of leaves, nuts, and a trace of white cement, all of which have distinct properties. However, the mix is wonderful.
Both the bride and the groom should maintain excellent connections with either of their families, and two different sets (both the bride and groom’s) are tied together for the same reason. After spending 7 hours together, they start to feel different things, like love, affection, fondness, closeness, friendship, and so on.
