Good thoughts bro.
I have never attended a Hindu wedding but I did go to a Buddhist wedding once. It was real cool. But I did wonder why get married if you believe that the purpose of life is to rise above all desire. So wouldn't that mean no desire even for a wife?

I agree with your sacrad text comment. I think religion is much to divisive. I not sure God has anything to do with much of it.

Terrance the Intellectual,

You make an interesting point about Buddhism. I found quite a few differences between their understanding of marriage and the Hindu understanding. In the West we tend to throw these two belief systems together as if their the same and they aren't, so I appreciate your comment.

I think the Buddhist would reply that as important as samsara (the state of no selfish desire) is the path of service to others. This being the case, a Buddhist being marriage is the joining of two partners to the path of service together.

Damn, u got caught up with the AME's. I could only imagine!!! LMAO

That's hot you got to parallel the three experiences. Most of us usually don't get a chance to experience it all, let alone many of us usually don't have cross cultural friends to have such an experience.

Hi,

I just wanted to say that I love your blog.

As a bride-to-be on a tight budget, I recently discovered an online bridal jewelry store called GlamForLess.com.
Though their website is plain and simple, I found some great deals on jewelry sets for me and my bridesmaids.

I think other readers on a tight budget may also find GlamForLess.com to be helpful.
You may want to check them out at http://www.glamforless.com/ and inform other readers about it.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards,
Lisa Bloom
