I was invited to celebrate the wedding celebration for South Indian gods: Andal Kalyana Mahotsavams at then Ashta Lakshmi temple, North Hollywood.

At the beginning the godess was carried around the temple and brought in, as would be with a human Indian wedding when wife leaves her family home and arrives to the grooms native place.

Once the procession returned to the front door the footprint of the cross above could be clearly seen.

With Indian that's just fine, the building transformed into another prayer place but god is god and the essence is above symbols.

-------

In Hindu itself god is one with many faces (avatar ) . Here, in this celebration, the specific avatars of male and female are getting married.
