$12.99 $9.74

Quantity:

Upanayana is one of the sixteen samskaras or purify rites in which a boy is invested with the sacred thread and thus endowed with second or spiritual birth and qualified to learn the Veda by heart. In this ceremony the boy goes to an Acarya well-versed in the Vedas with a view to be initiated into Vedic studies or a Guru draws a boy towards himself and initiates him into one of the three twice-born classes. From the day the initiation ceremony takes place the young celibate commits him to a life of austerity and abstinence; he chooses to lead a life rigorously disciplined by vows and disciplinary rules.

TESTIMONIALS

Thank you for completing my order for "Beyond Freedom" by Nisargadatta. It took a while to receive the book (paid for on January 20, 2009), but it did arrive at my home today in excellent condition. It was beautifully wrapped. Thank you for reliable service. I'll look forward to doing business with you again at some point in the future....
