Gayatri Pariwar Houston
We are a part of Global Gayatri Pariwar. Our Headquarter is at Shantikunj, Haridwar, India.
All World Gayatri Pariwar is devoted to cultural, ethical, moral and spiritual awakening of the masses. Development of divinity in mankind is its foremost goal and avowed objective. To accomplish this goal it is working on the following seven programs.
According to very first vedic granths, Sanskar is said to be helping for achieving spiritual nourishment, peace of mind and ultimately moksha. Sanskar give a spiritual touch to the important events at different stages of life—right from pre-birth to post-death.
We also make house calls to help people celebrate special family ceremonies (Sanskars), ranging from prenatal rites to wedding ceremonies. While conducting these several millennium old continuously living traditions of Sanatan Dharma, we also explain the logic, rationale, nuances and philosophy behind all the rituals. Our volunteers have received traditional training in performance of the Gayatri Yagya / Puja / Sanskars at the world HQ of Gayatri Parivar in India.
The sixteen sanskars are:
1. Grabhaadhan: Conception
2. Punsavana: Fetus protection
3. Simanta: Satisfying wishes of the pregnant Mother
4. Jaat-Karmaa: Child Birth
5. Naamkarma: Naming Child
6. Nishkramana: Taking the child outdoors
7. Annaprashana: Giving the child solid food.
8. Mundan or Choula: Hair cutting.
9. Karnavedh: Ear piercing
10. Yagyopaveet: Sacred thread
11. Vedarambh: Study of Vedas and Scriptures
12. Samaavartana: Completing education
13. Vivaah: Marriage
14. Sarvasanskaar: Preparing for Renouncing
15. Sanyas (Awasthadhyan): Renouncing
16. Antyeshti: Last rite, or funeral rites
