An Iyengar Brahmin Hindu family from Canada invited Sri Sarma Sastrigal of Chennai, a performing Sastrigal/Brahmin Priest who is well versed in English besides Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, to perform their son's marriage with a Vietnamese girl in Vietnam. Sri Sastrigal did conduct the wedding using holy and powerful slokas (instead of Vedic mantras) giving explanation then and there to the family members. A special Puja/Archana was also performed for Lord Venkateswara.
Both the Bridegroom and the Bride were from San francisco University and highly educated.
The brief speech on Hinduism and its message to the world delivered by Sri Sarma Sastrigal during the wedding was appreciated and well received by the audience which consisted of Hindus from USA & India,and local Vietnamese.
At the end of the programme, Sri Sastrigal prayed, by chanting a Vedic Mantra, for Universal peace and wished everyone present there to lead a happy and prosperous life.
