139 Couples tied the knot on Monday, the mass wedding was held at the venue of the 46th annual Nirankari Sant Samagam in Airoli.

While most of the couples belonged from Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, some brides and bridegrooms came from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat.

The ceremony began with the traditional Jaymala, followed by Nirankari Lavan. Each couple was given a common garland, a special feature of a Nirankari wedding.

Baba Ji said "Every social relation based on the teachings of the saints is bound to grow stronger and stronger. As a matter of fact, most of the families who opt for this simple ceremony are spiritually enlightened and attend holy congregations. It is here that they learn human values of love, humility, cooperation and tolerance." He called upon the newly-weds to seek the company of saints regularly.
