The Sanskrit word Upanayanam is made of Upa and Nayanam. (vision through knowledge). Literally, it is identified as the second vision known as Wisdom & knowledge. Also, Dwijan as we call the boy to whom the ceremony is being performed, is known to get the second birth - first being born on the earth with physical body and second being "taking one near to wisdom". through this ceremony. Essentially it has two parts. First is the investiture of the three stranded thread called Yagjnopaveetham. The second part is the Brahmmobadesam - taking one to the Brahmman - a recitation into his right ear the Gayathri mantra. This is usually performed by his father, who becomes the Teacher known as Guru to the boy.

The Youngster is thus, made eligible to be taken near the Vedas, so that he can study them and practice what is ordained upon him, in the Vedas. Here is the simplest way I explain the ritual known as Upanayanam - Brahmmobadesam. This ritual is performed with a larger gathering of friends, family relations and others to bless the boy. And from this day, he begins his routine Sandhya Vandanam - a regular prayer done thrice a day - during Morning, Noon & in the Evening. Also, from the day of Upanayanam & Brahmmobadesam, he start to perfom the Samitha Dhanam, a holy fire sacrifice, which he is supposed to perform daily.

Choulam - Initial (ceremony to remove hair) This is a ceremony typically performed in the third year of a child's life. It is an offering of the hair of the child to the gods. If that was not performed, it is done here. The father typically scrapes a few strands of hair with religious chants. Since this is done with the Vedic Mantras, it is considered a part of the religious ceremony and does not require a bath (as is the custom following any hair removal, in the Hindu society).

Choulam – Upanayanam In preparation for the main part the invocation - the Upanayanam Homam, the young charge has his head shaved partially to indicate his status as a student (Bramhachaari) by a barber. This requires him to take a bath. The student's Maama (maternal uncle) typically carries the child on his shoulder, to the site of the Homam.

Bramhopadesam Under a shroud of silk, the young charge is given the first instruction on the Gayatri Mantra, the holiest of all chants in the Hindu religion, by his father and the guru. After the Bramhopadesam, the student will now take the vows related to the state of Bramhachaarya.

This is the Bramhachaari' s first independent pooja, or religious rite.

Bhikshacharanam As a student, the Bramhchaari is expected to live on the charity of a designated group of families. The women of the Sabha symbolically gather to give alms to the Bramhachaari as he begs for food by repeating the words " Bhavati Bhiksham Dehi" (please give me alms). This is considered a sacred duty and an honor for the women of the community. The student then offers the food collected to the Guru, who in turn will allot his share to the student. Henceforth, the Bramhachaari is expected to eat only after obtaining permission from his Guru.v
