The sixteen sanskārs are a medium offered by God to generate Chaitanya (Divine consciousness) in our day-to-day life. Dharma (Righteousness) preaches that the purpose of human birth is God realisation. The religious scriptures, therefore, impart guidance on how to perform spiritual practice so as to get closer to God in every incident of life, right from birth till death. The life span, from birth till marriage completes one cycle. The focus of this Holy text is to explain the spiritual reason why a particular action should be performed in a particular manner, instead of merely discussing at length, every action in the performance of sanskārs. This will help us understand the science underlying the sanskārs.
This Holy text imparts knowledge on what sanskārs should be performed to get closer to God in the sixteen rituals in life from conception to marriage. These sanskārs later help in improving spiritual practice.
