Janeu Sanskar Muhurat 2020

The Janeu Sanskar 2020 is primarily about fastening the yagyopavit, an auspicious thread on a boy once he is old enough. The Janeu or yagyopavit is made with a particular ritual and is tied from one’s left shoulder and under his right arm. This ceremony, always done under an auspicious Upanayana Muhurat 2020, occurs after attaining Guru Deeksha. It is necessary to have the Janeu Sanskar 2020 before getting married. The three segments of the janeu symbolize the Trideva of Hinduism - Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh.

During the Yagyopavit Sanskar 2020, the priest chants the following mantra while the boy acquires the Janeu like he would, any other knowledge:

यज्ञोपवीतं परमं पवित्रं प्रजापतेर्यत्सहजं पुरस्तात्।
आयुष्यमग्रं प्रतिमुंच शुभ्रं यज्ञोपवीतं बलमस्तु तेजः।।

yajñopavītaṃ paramaṃ pavitraṃ prajāpateryatsahajaṃ purastāt।
āyuṣyamagraṃ pratimuṃca śubhraṃ yajñopavītaṃ balamastu tejaḥ।।

The age for the ceremony differs as per the caste of the child. Thus, a Brahaman child will have his Janeu Sanskar Muhurat 2020 at eight years of age. On the other hand, a Kashtriya’s Upanayana Muhurat 2020 will be when he is 12 years old. Similarly, a Vaishya boy will sit for the Janeu Sanskar 2020 at 16 years old. In olden times, the Sanskar always fell before one left for Gurukul. The ceremony has several rituals and do’s and don’ts that you can read here; Janeu Ceremony: Upanayana Sanskar & Rituals To Follow.
