The Art of Living Matrimony

Ashok Basutkar & Priyanka Khaire

Ashok said, “I had been searching for a life partner for a long time. I met many girls through other websites, but they weren’t on the spiritual path and failed to understand me and my lifestyle! After that I got to know about the Matrimony website of Art of Living, where I felt I could find a spiritual soulmate. There I registered for free. I first completely examined the website (there was no app back then when I registered, otherwise it would have made things a lot easier). Then I started liking and shortlisting profiles and took membership. This helped me a lot in my search. And then atlast I found her! That was the most exciting moment!! I spoke to my parents, the horoscope matching was also done and marriage was fixed i.e. on 26th February 2020. It was decided that the wedding would be in the AOL ashram, so that we could also receive Guruji's blessings. Everything was set and now we started talking to each other but there was a problem, she was in Maharashtra and I was in Karnataka. I went to Maharashtra on a weekend to see her we exchanged our feelings for each other, had lunch outside and at night I returned to Bangalore. The talk which we both had made me realise she was so simple and humble, and we were like-minded on many matters. There were 15 more days to our marriage, we all went shopping together and soon everything was done, and ready for the marriage. With the blessings of God and Guruji the marriage was a completely joyful affair! The family members and dear ones on both sides made the day more memorable. I thank Art of Living Matrimony for finding me a perfect match!!
