Grahapravesha - Entering the Home

The couple depart from the girl’s house after the vidai , for the groom’s house.

They carry behind the couple the sacred fire in a vessel. They should keep the re constantly alight.

When they reach his house, he says:

"Enter with your right foot. Do not remain outside."

The bride enters the home placing the right foot - considered auspicious, first.

When the bride and the groom enter the groom's house, the mother of the groom welcomes the bride by doing an aarati.

They sit in silence until the stars are visible.
