I hear many people say that King Janak organized a "swayamvar" for Sitaji's marriage. But this is a very wrong description, and always leaves me clueless, because the term "swayamvar" in this case is inappropriate, because nothing like a "swayamvar" was ever organized by King Janak for Sitaji's marriage. What he organized was a "Dhanush-Yagya."

What is a "Swayamvar"?? It's where an unmarried girl is shown a lot many prospective grooms, & the girl is free to choose one of them as her husband & marry him. This is a swayamvar. 

Now it may be organized in several ways. The most common way was that the father of the girl used to send invitation to all those men he thought fit to attend his daughter swayamvar, & then on the day of the swayamvar, the girl used to chose one of them as her husband, followed by the Vivaah ceremony. 

Another way was that which the father of Devi Savitri employed. He sent his daughter, princess Savitri, along with a large retinue of companions, & ministers & army, on a trip, where devi Savitri was free to go to any kingdom she wished to & was free to enquire about the young princes of that kingdom, & then she was to return to her home & tell her father which prince has she chosen as her husband. it was during this trip, when the party was passing through a forest, that Savitri saw Saytavaan, who was living with his parents in the forest at that time, and it was a case of love-at-first-sight, from devi Savitri's side that is, and she returned to her home & told her dad that she wished to marry a young man living in the forest. That was another way of organizing a "swayamvar" for one's daughter.

However, no matter how we look at it, King Videh never organized any "swayamvar" for Sitaji's marriage, as I said, it was a "dhanush-yagya" he organized.

Many people have this confusion, well, the world is full of confused people no doubt, that when you are using the world yagya for any event, it should necessarily involve worshipping God through Vedic chants & fire-rituals. I'm not saying that during King Janak's dhanush-yagya, priests were not chanting vedic mantras or that they were not worshipping God through fire rituals. What I'm saying is that to be called "yagya", the presence of these aspects is not mandatory. For "yagya" is a very broad term. 

For details, see the fourth chapter of Sri BhagvadGita where Parmatma Shri Bhagwaan Krishna is telling Arjun about various forms of yagya, & at the end of that discussion, Lord has not said that he has given an exhaustive list.

Anyways, back to topic, it is very clear that this dhanush yagya that King Videh organized for Sitaji's marriage, it had a very clear mandate for anyone willing to participate in this yagya - be the first one to lift Lord Shiv's Pinaak bow. 


And this mandate was because when sage Parshuram saw a very young Sitaji lifting the super heavy Pinaak like child's play, he understood that Sita is a special girl, & told King Janak that the man who can lift this Pinaak just like Sita has done, will be the worthy bridegroom for her.

So as we all know, only Lord Ram was capable of lifting Pinaak, & thus this eternal couple got married in leela-kshetra too. Big smile Big smile

But in all this, one thing which has always been very clear to me at least, is that there was never any swayamvar organised by King Videh for Sitaji. Why so many people still use this term in relation to Shri SitaRam marriage, I've no idea.    Smile
