Tapah: pundra: tatha nama: mantro yagas cha pancamah:
In our life time, we must undergo 40 Samskaras as prescribed in our sastras
for purification. Apart from these samskaras, pancha samskaram is respected
as the most important and superior samskaram, which gives real birth to
a jeevathmaa irrespective of N number of previous births which was spent
in complete ignorance. Panchasamskaram(Five Purification) is a process
by which one becomes a Sri Vaishnava. Swami ramanjar had appointed 74 dearest
disciplies as simmaasanaathipathis or acharya purushas and entrusted the
right of performing panchasamskaaram to the individual irrespective of
caste, creed, Gender etc.

In this process, an acharya explains on how to wear the dhvaadasa(12 Thiruman Kappugal) Urtha pundram in one’s body. We must wear these 12 Thiruman Kaapu every day by chanting 12 DivyaNaamam of Sriyappathi and Thiruththaayaar.
In this process, sishya would be named with a new name with suffix daasan(Dhaasya Naamam)
In this process, an Acharya will do Rahasyathraya(Three Secrets – Continuous chanting with full faith and complete devotion would liberate us from the bondage of this samsara)Manthra Upadesam to a sishyaa. One who receives this manthra upadesam is really blessed.
