Astrology plays an important role in the life of Buddhists, so their wedding must be first examined by the monks and their astrological maps to be interpreted together or separately.
Therefore, when there is astrological matching, the couple asks for the blessings of Buddha, though the monk. The couple, for respect, sits in “wai” position while the monk blesses them, simultaneously singing some hymns.
After the completion of the mystery, the couple must offer Buddha and the monks some rice. This is the way of gratitude of the newly-weds to their God that blessed them. With their turn, the monks offer the couple blessed water and pollen, sealing this way the good fortune that will accompany them in their married life.
