Upanayana for girls – Some references

In my earlier post on Upanayana Samskara for girls, I had indicated that it was not a deviation from Hindu tradition. Here are some references to this practice –

1. 20 girls complete Upanayan Samskara

2. College girls prepare to don sacred thread

3. `Upanayana’ performed for girls

I don’t see such initiation as a “feminist angle” at all. It’s quite the contrary. An traditional, knowing and educated woman is great for a family’s health and balance.

More power to this practice!

– Namaste
