Upanayan Muhurat 2021

Of all the Sanskar ceremonies which are a part of the Hindu religion and culture, Upnayana Sanskar occupies the tenth position. It is also known as Yagyopavit or Janeu Sanskar. It is quite an important and auspicious Sanskar ceremony in the life of a man.

The Upnayan Sanskar ceremony is carried out during the adolescence and childhood days of a male child. It is commemorated by following all the necessary rites and rituals after which the boy is given a genuine holy thread to wear. This basically means the child is ready to receive a formal education now and he gears up for receiving the education.

Meanwhile, if we talk about the word Yagyopavit, then it is made of two words ‘Yagya’ and ‘Pavit’ which basically means acquiring the right to conduct Yajna. It is believed that without this Sanskar ceremony, it is meaningless to acquire education, invest in trade, get involved in religious activities and many others. This Sanskar ceremony is carried out when a Brahman lad turns eight years old, a Kshatriya lad turns eleven and a Vaishya boy turns twelve.

It has been mentioned in the Shastras that the commemoration of the Janeu Sanskar frees the child from the sins committed by him in his previous birth. Hence, it is also regarded as its second birth. According to religious scriptures the child enters into the realm of religion, once the Sanskar gets completed. In the ancient times, the child was given a formal education only after the commemoration of the Janeu ceremony. It is extremely important to conduct this ceremony for the child's long life and wisdom.

Now with this article of ours on Upanayana Muhurat 2021, we will give away all the details regarding the Sanskar ceremony and its commemoration. The table given below consists of all the auspicious dates for Janeu Ceremony 2021 from where you can select an auspicious date for yourself to conduct this event.

Upanayana Muhurat 2021 : Importance

In the realm of Hindu religion and culture, there is a great significance behind organising Pujas and various other religious ceremonies. Upanayan Sanskar’s importance can be religious, scientific or astrological in nature. In the same manner there are certain other reasons behind the commemoration of Upanayan Sanskar too. Let us now take a look at what those reasons are because of which the Upanayan Sanskar has become such an important ceremony in today's world.

  • Religious Significance

The religious reason behind the commemoration of the Janeu Sanskar has a direct association with the holy trinity - Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. The three sources are considered to be the holy Trinity. Hence, Janeu is considered to be a holy thread. Any kind of Janeu as per this represents Brahma, Dharma, Adharma, lust and salvation.

  • Scientific Importance

There is also a special scientific importance of the Upanayan Sanskar. According to medical science, there is a nerve present in a person's back which moves through the right shoulder and goes until the waist. It is quite thin which works as an electricity generator. If this particular sonerve remains under control then one can also keep a tab over vices like anger and lust. The Janeu also goes through the right shoulder and stretches till one’s waist. So over and all, it can be said that a person's humanistic qualities improve when he wears a Janeu and negative thoughts do not trouble him anymore. Along with this, the Janeu also brings an improvement to a person's life expectancy, strength and intellect.

  • Astrological Importance

According to Vedic astrology, there are nine planets which are : Mercury, Mars, Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. According to astrology, all of these planets impact our life in a grave manner. There are 9 notes tied, which are found in a Janeu thread which are considered to be the representative of the Navagrahas or the nine planets. Hence, a person acquires the blessings of these nine planets when he wears a Janeu thread.

Apart from this the colour of the genuine threat is also associated with astrology. It is a thread coloured white and yellow colour is applied over it when the boy wears it for the first time. The white colour is associated with Venus and hence aspects like beauty, lust happiness and art. At the same time, the yellow colour of the Janeu is associated with Jupiter which is also the significator of aspects like knowledge, mentor and good works.

Upanayana Muhurat 2021 : Calculations and Time to Commemorate It

We have already said that the Upanayan Sanskar of a male child is commemorated in between his adolescence and childhood days. According to Sanatan Dharma customs, each and every auspicious ceremony should be commemorated in accordance with an auspicious muhurat; they not only tend to be successful then, but the aim with which it is commemorated also gets fulfilled ultimately. Like all the other 16 Sanskar ceremonies, Upnayan Sanskar is also an auspicious ceremony, which is why the act of wearing a Janeu should also be done in accordance with a Shubh muhurat. Let us now take a look at things which should be kept in mind and while selecting an auspicious Muhurat for the Janeu ceremony.

  • Beginning from Magha and the upcoming six months are considered to be quite auspicious for Upanayan Sanskar ceremony. The Janeu Sanskar of Brahmin lads are only completed during the month of Chaitra.
  • This ceremony is performed during the 2, 3, 5, 10, 11 and 12th Tithi of Shukla Paksha and only 2, 3 and 5th Tithi during Krishna Paksha. Upanayana ceremony is performed in the morning and afternoon. Yagyapavit should not be performed if the child is suffering from a disease.
  • If we talk about days, then Wednesday Thursday and Friday of all the seven days of the week are considered to be auspicious for the commemoration of the Janeu ceremony. Apart from these 3 days, Sunday is mildly favourable and Monday is very less auspicious to organise the Janeu ceremony. Meanwhile Tuesdays and Saturdays are considered to be highly inauspicious for the ceremony which is why these should be kept in mind while planning a date for the Janeu Sanskar.
  • Talking about the Nakshatras, the most auspicious Nakshatras are Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Pushya, Ghudha, Ashwini, Mrigashira, Punarvasu, Shravan and Revathi. Apart from this, if you are not able to perform Janeu ceremony in these Nakshatras, then you can perform Janeu rites in any other Nakshatras except Bharani, Kritika, Magha, Visakha, Jyestha, Shatabhisha Nakshatra during which it is forbidden to perform the Upanayana ceremony. Performing the Upanayana rites of Vipra Batukas is also prohibited in Punarvasu Nakshatra.
