The Arya Samaj South Africa scored a first when one of its Panditas, Pta. T. D. Sirkisson performed a Vivah Sanskar (Marriage Ceremony) in India in November 2009.  Orthodox Hinduism in India still frowns upon women priests and this marriage ceremony performed with a
Puranic priest in attendance, displays the reformist and progressive nature of the Arya Samaj movement. The priest commended Pandita on her performance of the ceremony which had been conducted with decorum and recital of the appropriate mantras.
