Some of the pre-wedding rituals in a Jain marriage are “Laghana Lekhan”, “Lagna Patrika Vachan” and “Sagai”. Other important rituals are “Phere”, “Kanyavaran”, “Havan” and “Granthi Bandhan”. After these four rituals, the wedding of the couple is said to have been fully solemnized. The newly weds are then blessed by all the guests and family members, the ceremony is called as “Ashirwaad”.
