I recently had a death in the family. My paternal grandmother (father's side) died at the ripe old age of 87 after a short battle with cancer. We are Hindu/Iyengaars. I am supposed to marry my fiance (who is American and non-hindu) in June but this untimely and unfortunate death of my grandmother will probably postpone our wedding by a year as per some people.
I have been looking around for official texts or something close to an official text that would tell me if and when a marriage would need to be postponed post a death in the family and what "kriyas" or acts may be performed to circumvent this.
Would anyone know something about this, perhaps pertinent to the iyengar belief system?
