5. Introduction to Vedic Samskāra - Concepts of Vedic Samskāra (Samskāra Prakaraṇam). This is the fourth session of Vedic learning (Introduction Session). In this session, we tried to provide a bird eye view of Core Vedic Samskāra Concepts. The Key concepts which we covered are - Dharma Shastra, Samskārās (16 Samskāras - Garbhadāna, Pumsavana, Simantonaya, Jātakarma, Nāmakaraṇa, Nishkramaṇa, Annaprasana, Karnavedha, Chudākaraṇa, Upanayana, Samavarthana, Vivāha, Vānaprasta, Sanyāsa, Antyeshti), Dharma, karma, Yajña and some associated topics. As the Concepts are very complex and vast in nature, we tried to address the key concepts and in a over simplified way.
