Dr. Kinjal B Panchal and Dr. Himangi Baldaniya
The Samskara are a series of sacraments, sacrifices and rituals that serve as rites of passage and mark the various stages of the human life and to signify entry to a particular Ashrama (i.e. stage of life). Basically all these rituals are of the nature of purification and give good qualities. In other word, Sanskara means “Gunantaradhanam” which is used for transform the qualities. The number of Sanskara varies in different Hindu religious texts; it is about 16-40. But at present 16 Sanskara are as in practice which should be performed from conception to after death. These Sanskara are related to proper growth and development of fetus and child.
