The Hindu religion has 16 sanctifying rituals known as sanskaras/samskaras. Each sanskar has its specific relevance. These sankars are performed from birth to death and Vidyarambh is one of them. It’s a Sanskrit word that is formed by combining ‘Vidya’ means studies and ‘Arambh’ means beginning. It is performed to mark the beginning of a child’s primary education.Vidyarambh sanskar is conducted after the child crosses five years of age. During the ritual, the importance of education and knowledge is taught to the child.
Vidyarambh Sanskar is quite significant in the Hindu religion and hence, it should be conducted at the auspicious muhurat. It is believed that performing Vidyarambh sanskar at auspicious muhurat will mark the beginning of a bright future for the child.
