Dr. Lalita N. Patole and Dr. Akash Munjaba Chavan*

Abstract

In Ashtanga Ayurveda, Kaumarbhritya is one of the prime branches of Ayurveda. Children are also considered as the most vulnerable class of society as they are unable to express themselves, dependent on caretaker. Thus children need a special attention and nursing as children are in a rapid continuous process of growth and development physically and mentally. In Ayurvedic, various Acharya describe many type of Sanskar, in which 16 Sanskar or rites of passage are performed in present era from the birth to the end in a Hindu‟s nation. This Sanskar means religious purificatory rites and ceremonies for sanctifying the body, mind and intellect of an individual so that he may become a full-fledged member of the community. Sanskar is a fine discussion on the caste and class structure of India. A rite of passage or life cycle ceremony; the realizing of past perception. Praneshacharya undergoes the process of purification. He shifts from a hardcore ritualistic Brahmin to a realist. All these sanskars are performed since Vedic period. Weather we conclude logic behind it or not it has some importance in development of Baby. In Present Era, there is needing have understand its effect on scientific basis and simply its concept to adopt these in society easily and we got the ideal baby for this society. Hence word Sanskar suggests concept of growth & development and examination of developmental milestones of a growing child.
