In this session we discussed The Hindu Samskaras or Rite of passage . We discussed why they were necessary and how they bind us to our social groups. We discussed the most commonly practised  Four samskaras. It was a great discussion as everybody shared the samskara they were personally involved with.We talked about these main samskaras :
• Jatakarma – birth ceremonies (plus others in childhood)
• Upanayana – initiation (the sacred-thread ceremony)
• Vivaha – marriage
• Antyeshti – funeral and rites for the deceased
