Marriage vow - Vivaha Yagna Vrata

🌾🌾🌾 Marriage vow
according to 🙏🙏🙏 Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur!🙏🙏🙏

🌿🌿“The cardinal principle of gṛhastha āśrama is that
no one may be the owner of any property or service of another.🌿🌿

🌿🌿Everyone is only a servant whose activities are ever in the service of the Lord. 🌿🌿

🌿🌿Similarly, the sole object of everyone’s service as the only master, only friend, only son and only consort is Krishna.🌿🌿

,🌿🌿Marrying and giving in marriage do not give rise to any rights of a master either to the husband or to the wife. 🌿🌿

🌿🌿Men and women are joined in wedlock for the purpose of serving each other in the performance of the joint service of Krishna.,🌿🌿

🌿🌿The wife is not an object of enjoyment of the husband,
nor vice versa.
They do not marry for gratifying their sexual appetites. 🌿🌿

🌿🌿They marry for pleasing the Lord, not for pleasing themselves.🌿🌿

🌿🌿They choose for their partners only such persons who serve God better than themselves.🌿🌿

🌿🌿They offer themselves to be accepted by their partners for the favor of being allowed to share in their superior service of Hari.🌿🌿

🌿🌿Neither the husband nor the wife should claim the services of his or her partner on their own account.🌿🌿

🌿🌿Both of them are only to offer their services if and when their partner is pleased to permit them to share their service of Hari.🌿🌿

🌿🌿None of them can force their partners to serve them.🌿🌿

🌿🌿This system of household discipline has its roots
in the joint worship of the
household🌺 deity🌺 by all members of the household.🌿🌿

🌿🌿The reason why the guru does not ordinarily ask
any person to enter the state of wedlock is that it is
very rare to find anyone in this world
who is willing to regard
his or her wife or husband
as worthy of his or her unconditional services.🌿🌿

🌿🌿This is, however,
🌿🌿the only relationship 🌿🌿
between🌹husband and wife 🌹that alone can be

✋ sanctioned ✋

by the 🙌🙌Guru🙌🙌.”
