Last week, our esteemed colleage Ashish Halageri, Indian Subcontinent Sales Manager at E&M Combustion, celebrated the Upanayana Sanskar ceremony of his son, in the company of his family and the guru (teacher), who accepted the entrance of the student in the Hinduism school. The Upanayanam, or sacred cord ceremony, is one of the most important sanskaras or sacraments of Hinduism. In this ceremony the diksha mantra is recited or the initiation to the recitation and meditation of the mantras.
Upanayana Sanskar ceremony is a rite of passage of great transcendence. It represents the formal entry of the child into the Hindu society, considering him from that moment as a dvija, or twice born. The first, physical, at the moment of its earthly birth; the second, that of his spiritual birth through the knowledge imparted by his teacher.
The vatu or child received in the ceremony the yagyopavita (sacred thread formed by three threads of cotton), which allows him to recite the mantras and study the sacred texts. The ritual began with the achamana or rite of purification, with water and mantras. Then he received the sacred cord that hangs from his left shoulder and goes down to the right side. Then, behind a cloth, the purohit (guru) recited in the right ear the gayatri mantra, word by word, which the boy repeated.
May he follow the path of dharma and be a good Hindu, that is, a good person!
