Hinduism - What Is Rajabhiseka?

 

"Rajabhiseka" means "royal anointing" in Sanskrit.

The raja suya ritual was superseded with a royal consecration ceremony.

The Rajabhiseka involves anointing rituals that were thought to have transformational power but were less elaborate than the Rajasuya and did not include animal sacrifice.
