Hinduism - What Is Vidyarambha Or Vidyarambha Samskara?

 


Vidyarambha translates as "beginning of learning")in Sanskrit.

The tenth of the life-cycle rituals (samskaras) at which the child starts formal education, often by learning the alphabet.

Although individuals in contemporary India may not follow the specified form of this process (which involves making offerings to a sacrificial fire and giving presents to brahmins), families that value education have a ritualized start to study, frequently when the child is as young as three years old.
