Upanayanam

Puja Description

The ceremony was typically performed at age eight among the Brahmins, at age 11 among
the Kshatriyas, and age 12 among Vaishyas.[3][18] Apastamba Gryha Sutra, in verse
1.1.1.27, places a maximum age limit of 24 for the Upanayana ceremony and start of formal
education. However, Gautama Gryha Sutra and other ancient texts state that there is no age
restriction and anyone of any age can undertake Upanayanam when they feel they initiate
their formal studies of the Vedas.

When the male child attains the age of 8 years this ceremony is performed by fixing a
Muhurth based on the birth nakshatra of the boy.
