UPANAYANA.

Upanayana is the initiation ritual by which initiates are invested with a sacred thread, to symbolize the transference of spiritual knowledge.
Son Takshak of Vani and Satish Nakshatri, had the occasion of being ordained as brahmachari. The venue was at HANDE HALL, Jayanagara. After the rituals, a sumptuous lunch was there 2/3 sweets.
upanayana, Hindu ritual of initiation, restricted to the three upper varnas, or social classes; it marks the male child’s entrance upon the life of a student (brahmacarin) and his acceptance as a full member of his religious community. The ceremony is performed between the ages of 5 and 24, the wide variance reflecting the classical notions of the different educational requirements of the three upper classesBrahmans (priests and teachers), Kshatriyas (warriors and rulers), and Vaishyas (merchants and tradesmen).
