What does it mean?
The first birthday of a child is special for many reasons.
Scriptures (Shastras) mention that the beginning of this special day should be dedicated to a practice which has lots of significance to it. Since science has been accepted as the dictating factor for proof and validation, a lot of scientific researches have proved the amount of positive impact that these practices consist of.
For example, Mundan is a practice of shaving child's head and recent studies have implied that this should be followed by everyone as it removes the hair soaked in blood and secretion inside the womb and also enriches the scalp.
Ayushya Homa is one such practice which initiates and prepares the child to face the world with divine blessings. Ayushya Homa is a Vedic ritual dedicated to increase longevity. This ritual is based on a Vedic chant called 'Ayushya Suktam' which contains prayers to various deities.
Unique : While majority of the rituals are performed to a specific deity, this is one amongst rare rituals performed mainly for the benefit of participant and includes mantras for many deities.
