Mass Marriages

Mass Marriages

To fight the evil of dowry and march towards gender parity, Sai Dham organizes 4 batches of Mass Marriages in a year where about 100 couples get married every year. 955 marriages have been solemnized by the end of 2019. The couples belong to the underprivileged sections of the society and are provided with all the necessary items of a household like utensils, gas stove, cycle, clothes, suitcases, ration etc to begin their new journey. This reduces the burden of arranging funds for the marriage of the poor girls from the shoulders of their parents of the poor girl who otherwise have to take loans, sell of their valuables and work for many shifts in a day. The volunteers of Sai Dham have taken up the mission of convincing the families of the slum and rural areas to adopt Mass Marriage through which the evil of dowry is mitigated and encourage the parents to educate their daughters and instead.

After the girl’s parents have fixed the groom, they are supposed to approach Sai Dham to register their request for the marriage in the upcoming batch of the Mass Marriage function. On the scheduled day, the bride and the groom, along with their families, relatives and friends reach Sai Dham in the morning and have breakfast. Thereafter the brides are dressed and made ready for the big day at the Sai Dham Beauty Culture Training Center. Then the Jai Mala ritual is performed at 12 noon, which is followed by Pheras conducted with hymns (Mantras) recited by the priests or the qazi. Lunch is then served to more than 3000 guests attending the Mass Marriage.
