Samskaras: Birth to First Learning

Cybertalk: Today Gurudeva talks about the importance of samskaras, how beginning with the name-giving sacrament at one month through first feeding, ear boring, coming of age, and marriage, these religious ceremonies help shape and reinforce the person's religious life.

We have one duty to perform, which is to pass our religion on to the next generation, the next and the next. And how do we do this? How is this done? It is done by causing the children to memorize the precepts of our scriptures.
