Gold Mangalsutra – The symbol of sacredness and eternal bond

Mangalsutra or Mangalyam is an essential constituent of most Indian weddings. The center of attention during the momentous occasion of marriage is the event of groom tying the sacred knuptial knots of mangalyam around the brides neck.

The mangalyam chain may be decked with jasmine flowers and kumkum may be applied.The marriage rituals may vary from religion to religion, community to community, state to state. But just as the confluence of rivers into ocean, each tradition upholds the institution of marriage as the sanctified union between a man and women in which the couple take vows for a new and everlasting relationship.

Indian Matrimony - Reach and Penetration of Mangalyam

While mangalyam is popularly referred to as 'thaali' or 'thali' in the context of tamil matrimony it is famous as 'Mangalsutra' in North India. It is also known by the names 'Maangalyamu', 'Pustelu' and 'Mangalasutramu'.

Mangalsutras are a striking reflection of our rich culture which is renowned worldwide. The tradition of making the marriage holy with a mangalsutra penetrated to the far-flung nations of the world from India.

As well known, Hindu, Christian and Muslim weddings feature Mangalyam as an intrinsic ingredient of it. With modernisation, globalisation and empowerment of women, the demand for premium class of Mangalsutras with exquisite and eye catching designs is on the rise.

Significance of Mangalyam

Gold Mangalsutras annexed to the chains also stand for the golden moments and milestones in the relationship of the couple that they are about to witness in the long run. The events include, but not limited to, marriage anniversaries, birth of little prince or princess, naming ceremonies of their kids etc. The moment thirumangalyam is tied the groom and the bride become husband and wife.

Some people may prefer to skip conducting Homa and the recitation of vedic hyms. Few may opt for conducting the event of tying of knuptial knot in a temple, taking the advice of astrologers. Even in those cases,they cannot do away with thirumangalyam.

The eyes of the elderly people witnessing the ceremony will be focused on the stage while the orchestra comprising flute, thavil, mridangam, nadaswaram is at its high pitch or note. That’s the time signaling the audience that all is set for the groom to tie the mangalyam around the neck of his bride.

In some communities the groom ties three knots in the mangalyam chain whereas in others the groom just places it(already tied) around the neck. In few communities, the practice of adding a gold coin in the thali or thirumangalyam of the Indian bride on the auspicious day of Aadi Perukku prevails.

Sentiments associated

Some are very sentimental about the Thirumangalyam that they will never remove it from their neck , regardless of the situation.

The black bead on the gold string is believed to set ablaze the negative energy in the women’s body. This is the thread that provides a reminder to strangers that the women is married and the bond between the women and her husband is a very private one and bypassers should honour it and behave in a dignified manner.

Evolution of Mangalsutra & Safety:

In oldern days a yellow thread immersed in turmeric paste served the purpose. With advancement in civilization mangalsutras made in precious metals such as gold, silver etc. took the place of the yellow thread.
