More than 40 local Hindus clapped, rang bells and chanted in unison on a recent Sunday morning in a private home while sitting cross-legged around a latticed shrine covered with roses, golden figures of Hindu deities and lit candles. More than 15 families gathered together in this Huntington Beach home--as they have every other week for the last 15 years--to study Hinduism together and then share a meal.

The new couple show no outward response--they are a pair of miniature deities--and the wedding is symbolic.
