Sanskars

It is important to note that each of the Sanskar is performed with Gayatri Yagya and the oblations are offered to the sacred fire (agni devta) with specific mantras. The vibrations of Gayatri Mantra and other mantras purify the child’s subtle and astral bodies. Inhalation of the vapors of herbs soothingly condition their brain as well as their body. This is an excellent pre-schooling training. This procedure for cultivation of ideal tendencies in the children provides refined characters to the society.
The team of scientists at Brahmvarchas research center – established by Acharya Sharma at Shantikunj, Haridwar in India – has conducted research experiments in its yagyopathy, hematology, biochemistry and psychometric laboratories on the effects of different Sanskaras.

Punsavan (Baby Shower)

Performed during the period of pregnancy, invoking blesssings for Divine protection for his/her bright future. This sanskar is performed when the child is in the form of a fetus – three months old in the mother’s womb, to achieve maximum benefit. However, there is no harm in performing it after three months. A specific herbal preparation energized in the sacrificial fire of yagya is given to the mother to reach the fetus. This special ‘treatment’ performed with chanting of mantras during a yagya strengthens healthy development of the gross (physical), subtle (mental) and astral (conscious) body of the child.
The experiments on the Punsavan sanskar have revealed startling results: the mothers, who were prone to abortion or whose earlier issues were subjected to metabolic system’s deficiencies or to some genetic disorders since birth, have delivered healthy babies after this sanskar. It has now been accepted by the researchers that the charu or purodash (herbal preparation) processed under the vitally charged vapors of yagya affects the cellular and molecular (including genetic) systems.

Namkaran (Naming Ceremony)

The ceremony of naming the child – Baptism – A sacrament for imposing of divinity in newly-bron human child. The naming ceremony of the child. Generally it is performed on the tenth day after birth, but can be performed within a month. It is also a sacrament for imposition of divinity in a newly born child. During this ceremony, the importance and education is given to parent and other family members that the child should be given the atmosphere where his/her inherent qualities can be awakened and undesirable traces of previous birth can be uprooted. The child should be named in a manner that is meaningful and reflects a noble quality.

Annaprashan (Rice-eating ceremony)

Administering food to the child for the first time – Sowing the seed of purity in Annamaya-Kosh of the child. Performed at the age of 6 months or when a child starts eating solid food for the first time. The food is offered to Yagya Bhagvan first and then given to the child. The education for eating leftovers of yagya means sacrifice for the animal kingdom and the poor in our society, as mentioned in Geeta. The aim of this sanskara is sowing the seeds of purity in Annamaya Kosh of the child and is performed for healthy growth and strength of the body. It teaches the importance of piousness of Anna. Scriptures say, “Aahar shudhou satvashudhihi” meaning if you eat pious food your mind will be pious. Food is not for the taste but for healthy growth of the mind.

Mundan (Tonsure ceremony)

The tonsure ceremony of children – Eradication of beastly tendencies & sowing seeds. It is performed at the age between 1 and 3 years regardless of gender. Nowhere in our scriptures are mentioned the differences between a girl and a boy. In fact, the Vedas say, “Dash putra sama yasya shilvati soota”, meaning a moral girl is equivalent of ten boys. It aims at eradication of beastly tendencies and sowing seeds of cultural consciousness in the child. It is also performed for harmonious titillation of the nerves and proper development of the brain. It is said that birth hair carries undesirable ideas and traits from past birth. So they need to be removed and new ideas full of eminence should be grown in its place. Parents are given education that the success of life is in using our talents, capabilities, and intelligence to benefit the world. Please speak to one of us for the arrangement of a Barber.

Vidyarambh (First day of learning)

The Vidhyarambha sanskar is indeed the righteous initiation of knowledge. It is performed to initiate development of mind and to instill intellectual competence in a child. School and College teaching may make a child ‘learned’ and help attain material prosperity, but true knowledge comes through the arousal and training of the sentimental core, righteous orientation of thoughts and appraisal and aspiration of the divine purpose of life. Attainment of Vidhya meets these objectives in a natural way.

The Yagyopaveet sanskar is performed to channelize this development. The initiation of the Gayatri Mantra and experiments of spiritual elevation is associated with this sanskar.

Acharya Sharma eliminated all misconceptions and illusions associated with Yagyopaveet and Gayatri. He revived the methods of performing this sanskar and propagated the universality of Yagyopaveet and Gayatri and made that knowledge available and attainable for all humans, without any discrimination of sex, caste, religion, creed, or social status. He also invoked the discipline of maintaining shikha (hair knot) on head. This shikha is placed at a point, which is very important for positive impact of yoga and meditation.
