Pancha Samskaaram

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.
