Guru recites the mantra and says that from today onwards you have become a Brahmin, that is, one who believes in Brahma (only one who believes in God). After this, wearing deerskin, they tie a bracelet of Munj and give punishment in hand. That child begs for alms from the people present.

After wearing Janeu, a person has to follow the rules in his life. He has to do the tasks of his daily life keeping Janeu in mind. Yagyopaveet Sanskar can be performed when the child is 8 years old, but due to the changed lifestyle in today’s time, Yagyopaveet Sanskar is not performed in childhood.
