kanyaa daanam

Here, the brahmachari meets his prospective father-in-law. The latter
seats him facing the eastern direction and washes the feet of the future
son-in-law, considering him as Lord Vishnu Himself. All honors are given
including the ceremonial washing of the feet of the groom by the
father-in-law and offer of madhu parka (a mixture of yogurt, honey and ghee)
to the accompaniment of selected Veda mantras.
