Special Importance of Naming Ceremony
Of all the sixteen Sanskars mentioned in Hindu religion, Naamkaran or Naming Ceremony is quite significant. The name plays an important role in a person’s life as it determines his/her existence in the society. This is the reason why Naming ceremony is important in its own way. The concerned parents and relatives of a child start calling him by a certain name after he/she is born. But, according to the customs of Hindu religion, the naming ceremony of a child should be conducted when the child is eleven or twelve days old by observing the necessary rites and rituals. During this Sanskar ceremony, an astrologer takes note of the child’s birth chart and names him/her after analyzing the Nakshatras. The successful commemoration of this ceremony blesses the child internally as well as externally. It should be conducted as the child’s mental and physical development happens in a better manner after the naming ceremony’s successful commemoration. This ceremony also increases the life expectancy of the child. This ceremony specifically gives a different identity to the child which is quite important for his/her future.
Precautionary Measures To Be Undertaken During Naming Ceremony
1. The ceremony should be organized at a clean place. Home is an ideal place to do so but incase of any emergency, the ceremony should be solemnized at a religious place or temple.
2. Select the child’s name according to his/her zodiac sign. Do not put the child’s future at stake by selecting any random name. The muhurat can also be retrieved by studying the child’s planetary positions and his/her future.
3. The naming ceremony should be solemnized according to a proper Muhurat only. Seek the help of an astrologer or internet to arrive into a conclusion.
4. The family should stay away from non-vegetarian diet and alcohol on that particular day.
5. If possible, feed bread (roti) to a cow (Gow Mata) on the naming ceremony day.
