    On which side of her husband should the wife be while doing Namaskar?

    While performing any act the wife should stand to the right of her husband. The husband represents the ‘Moon’ channel. The wife is considered to be the other half of her husband and represents the ‘Sun’ channel. The Sun channel is symbolic of the manifest functional Divine Energy of the Adishakti, which is the provider of energy to any action. The Moon channel, indicative of the God principle, is symbolic of Lord Shiva who actually functions on the strength of the energy provided by the Adishakti. As the Divine Energy of Lord Shiva, the wife should stand to the right of her husband and support him in every action. In every ritual the wife without performing any actual act, provides him with the ‘Energy for Action’ of Goddess Durga which is required for a ritual, by placing four fingers of her right hand on his right arm. This is why the act performed by the host and his wife by virtue of being complimented by Lord Shiva and Divine Energy bear fruit in a short period.

    Q:Should a wife stand to the right or left side of her husband?



    A:QUICK ANSWER

    Traditionally, a bride stands to the left of her husband on their wedding day and at social events. However, these days it is rare for a wife to purposefully stand to the left of her husband.



    FULL ANSWER

    The reason a wife would traditionally stand to the left of her husband is because a man's right arm was considered his sword arm. Should a husband have to protect his wife, he would hold her in his left arm and fight off any danger with his right arm. It was therefore in the wife's best interests to always stand on the left of her husband.

    OMG! In brahmin culture the wife stands to the right of her husband during most of the rituals, except while the husband

    collects the akshadhai from elders, in his upper garment!

    This may be because generally brahmins don't fight with swords!!
