Upanayanam is one of the important 16 Hindu samskaras. The samskaras are essentially rituals and are outward and visible signs of inward or spiritual grace.

The word means, bringing the boy near the guru. In ncient days, the boy started his gurukula vasa then. He is invested with the sacred thread-yagnopavitha and initiated with the Gayathri mantra. This initiation makes him dvija – twice born.

The initiation into Gayathri mantra is his second birth. The thread consists of three threads knitted together. He who wears this thread should have a triple control over his Mind, speech and body Thought, word and action. From, now on, the boy has a right to utter all sacred mantras. The Gayathri mantra itself does not talk of God – it only proclaims nature as supreme. Om bhur bhuvas suvah Tat savitur vareNyam Bhargo devasya dheemahi Dhiyo yo na prachOdayat.

The bride's family brings turmeric, betel leaves, nuts and clothes for the groom. The bride's brother then honours the groom by placing a flower garland around his neck. As a symbol of happiness, sugar candy is distributed to all guests. Then, an 'Aarthi' is performed, and a coconut is broken, a ritual believed to ward off evil eyes. On the "medai" or raised platform, both families sit opposite to each other and the "lagna patrika," or marriage contract is written and read aloud by the 'priest or sastrigal'. The document includes the names of both the families, the names of the bride and groom and the agreement that the marriage is to be conducted and it is signed by both bride's and groom's parents.
