Janaki Mangal - Written By Tulsidas - Details Wedding of Lord Rama And Sita

Janaki Mangal is a book credited to Goswami Tulsidas, the author of Ramcharitmanas. It contains important events that took place during the wedding of Sri Ram and Mata Sita in the Ramayana.

The text gives us the information that Mangal Navagraha (or Mars Planet) is the brother of the Mata Sita.

Deep brother-love relationship between Mangal and Mata Sita is found in Janaki Mangal.
The Lava Parsai Rasam requires the participation of the brother of the bride. When Rishis asked for Sita’s brother, it is said that Mangal then appeared on the spot. He then performed the Lawa Parsai Rasam.

It is said that Mangal appeared on Sita’s wedding on the orders of Mother Earth. There is also a legend which says that Sita is the daughter of Mother Earth and Mangal is the son of Mother Earth.

The tradition continues even today and the Lawa Parsai Rasam is performed by the brother of the bride.
