Hinduism - What Is Mangalam?

 (meaning "lucky" in Sanskrit) Term with the root "to mean” may refer to something that is thought to bring good luck, such as a benedictory formula, a pleasant omen or portent, or an auspicious occasion like marriage.

It might refer to a piece of jewelry, such as the mangal sutra, a necklace worn by married women in southern India as an indication that their husbands are still alive.
