Havan ritual I will be talking about.
havan in hindusim, a scared
fireplace around which ritual fire ceremonies are conducted. It is sometimes
called a “sacrifice ritual” because the fire destroys the offering. The fir is
the agent and the offering is those that are material and symbolic such as
grains, fruits, milk, seeds. The fire is suppose to
purify the environment and those who participate in the
havan.The havan is also
suppose to bring the person good fortune and health.
The havan is a ritual that be used in life and death.

use fire the to purify the
environment and to bring a person good luck.I could why the
havan is used in wedding, because a couple
entering a phase of their life and could use all the
good fortune and blessings they can get.
