buddhist divorce ceremony

buddhist divorce ceremony

In the sutras and shastras there is no mention of marriage ceremony for instance. This is why buddhist dont have marriage ceremony, I tell you. This is true. Many many traditional buddhist like in Korea and Japan are becoming christian now because they dont have a good marriage ceremony. It is nice to wear wedding gown. Brocade. The music. All of those are important but buddhist dont have. And I always say this: if I make one, a buddhist marriage, which actually I am trying to, kind of, gather some ideas, something related to buddhist marriage. But if I really do it authentically it is not going to work. It will be something like, the couple in front of me and I say: oh well you know things are impermanent. It might not work like after a few days. More likely buddhist would have a divorce ceremony.
