Paanigrahana or Hasta Milap (Holding the hand)

The bridegroom stands facing west and the bride sits in front of him facing east. 

He seizes her hand and recites Vedic hymns for happiness, long life, and a lifelong relationship

When the bridegroom takes the bride's hand he says :

"O Sarasvati, gracious one,

rich in off spring,

you whom we hymm first of all the Gods,

may you prosper this marriage."

"I seize your hand."
