Prayers to the seven stars symbolizing sages And the pole star 
Priest and the groom :

There are the seven sages who helped Arundhati, the foremost among the seven Krittikas (stars), to reach permanent position When I see her, I feel that my wife is the eighth krittika

O pole star, you are called Dhruva because you are ever stable in this position. You are stability incarnate, steadiness itself. By your stability it seems as if you arrest the movements of other starts. In the circular constellations of stars, you stand out with your triangular neighborhood. O Dhruva, please protect me from my enemies.

Benedictions

Priest and the parents of the bride : (To the bride-)
My dear daughter, by your love and good conduct earn the love of your father-in-law, mother-in-law, and brothers-and sisters-in-law. Lead a happy life in this house.

O dear ones, stay together with abiding love. Let not even a trace of dissent appear between you. Lead a full life of joy with children and grandchildren.
