Asmaarohana or Shilarohana (Mounting the stone)

At the end of each round of nuptial fire, both the bride and the groom step on a stone and offer a prayer for their mutual love to be firm and steadfast like the stone.

The bridegroom says the words while the bride stands up:

"Come, beautiful one."

And lets her put the  tip of the right foot on the stone, saying:

"Come, step on the stone;

be strong like a stone.

Resist the enemies;

overcome those who attack you."
