Transcendental Wedding

A Krsna conscious wedding is performed according to an authorized devotional procedure thousands of years old. The marriage is sanctioned by the spiritual master, the marriage vows are taken in the temple, before the Deities of Radha and Krsna, and the couple vows that there will be no separation or divorce. In Krsna consciousness, marriage is meant for cooperation in executing spiritual life, and not for sense gratification.

Generally the association of woman is very restricted for any man who wishes to seriously make spiritual progress. According to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, however, restriction of association with woman may be slackened in Krsna conscious marriage: "If a man or woman's attachment is not to each other but to Krsna, then both of them are equally eligible to get out of the material entanglement and reach the abode of Krsna." (Bhaktivedanta Purports of the Third Canto ofSrimad-Bhagavatam)
