Sacred Thread Ceremony
Gayatri Japa means let my Intellect be inspired by the Divine.
It is our intellect which blocks the vast Divinity from expressing itself fully in life. So, the prayer is, May the Divine inspire my intellect.
May the Supreme Energy manifest in my life and in my intellect."
– GURUDEV SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR
Upanayanam is one of the most important Samskārās in a person’s life. “Upa” means ‘close’ and “Nayana” means ‘to bring’. Upanayana means to bring closer to the Guru or Divine.Upanayana also called the ‘sacred thread ceremony’ is a ceremony performed to mark the point at which children began their formal education in the Vedic tradition.
What Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar says :
Gayatri Japa means – Let my intellect be inspired by the Divine. It is our intellect which blocks the vast Divinity from expressing itself fully in life. [pullquote]So, the prayer is,‘May the Divine inspire my intellect. May the Supreme Energy manifest in my life and in my intellect.’ [/pullquote] And in Upanayanam, they usually put a thread on you and the thread is to signify that you have a responsibility towards the knowledge, towards your parents and towards society. So it signifies carrying our responsibilities.
