The Hindu Samsaras are a way to express the aspirations and ideals that the Hindus hold. They are concerned with the development of the performer’s personality and ensuring his welfare. They date back to an ancient past. While the Vedas, Brahmanas and the Grhyasutras and Dharmasutras describe the customs and rites in various places, they don’t give a historical overview. This work is a systematic analysis of all Samskaras that were enjoined to take place at various times in a person’s life, from conception to death. To show their universality and importance, the author has used parallels from other religions. He also demonstrated that sacramental beliefs, practices and rituals are not irrational priest crafts. They are consistent and logical. They have practical utility and intent. This book discusses the meaning, number and purpose of Samskaras. They are grouped under five headings: prenatal and natal, educational and nuptial, funeral, and burial. It is a landmark in Hindu culture and presents patterns of life that are based on high ethical spiritual and humanistic values.
