Vedas have defined the way of living for each individual in a very scientific and well defined manner. Sanskars are one of the means to reach this goal. An individual right from his birth till the death has to perform these 16 Sanskars or Stages. The literal meaning of the word “Sanskar” means cleansing the bad things out from someone and preparing him for the next phase in life. The Sanskars are performed for the Mental, physical, behavioral, and spiritual balance and progress of an individual. These ceremonies are vital for a human being to change his mind and means as well as fresh challenges.

Jatakarma Sanskar is performed after 6 or 11 days from the birth of the child for the purification of the house.
