Upanayanam - "Sacred thread ceremony” is performed to mark the point at which an individual begin their formal education in the Vedic tradition. It is traditionally seen as getting a new birth in the spiritual world towards the higher knowledge of the Self and is also an initiation process to learn the sacred chants and mantras according to the Vedic tradition. The ceremony is complete with wearing of the Yajñopavītam (Sacred Thread) on the body.
With Guruji’s grace, we have the opportunity of participating in this ceremony and getting initiated into the Vedic culture. Upananayam is also a pre requisite for learning the Vedas and is rightly called the Brahmopadesam – the teaching of the highest knowledge. Participants will be initiated into the Gayatri and will be taught the Sandhyavandana and Nityahoma. During the course, the participants will also get to know the meaning behind the ceremonies through Guruji’s discourses on the significance of the various steps.
