Ceremonial rites and rituals occupy a place of utmost importance in the life of a devout Hindu. Among the innumerable castes and communities in India, only the trivargas-Brahmanas, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas perform their rites strictly in accordance with the injuctions ordained by the Vedas. These rites aggregate into sixteen sanskaras. One, who performs a sanskara attains glory, admiration and honour in society and like a physically unattractive person who looks attractive when adorned with ornaments, attains beauty as well.
The mantras used in the nuptial rites being in Sanskrit are beyond the comprehension of only the average Hindu, but even the common priests entrusted with the duty of conducting the rituals. To overcome this difficulty, the present book provides simple and adequate knowledge of different sanskaras of Hindu tradition in a nut-shell.
