Mithila Janeu is a sacred thread ceremony that is performed by the Brahmin community in the Mithila region of India. The ceremony is also known as “Upanayana” and marks the initiation of a young boy into the Brahmacharya stage of life, which is the stage of learning and studying the Vedas.
During the ceremony, the young boy is given a sacred thread (Janeu) which is usually made of cotton or silk and is worn across the body from the left shoulder to the right hip. The thread is believed to represent a bond between the boy and his teacher, as well as a connection to the divine.
The Mithila Janeu ceremony is an important rite of passage for young boys in the Brahmin community and is considered to be one of the most significant ceremonies in their lives. It is usually performed when the boy is between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and marks the beginning of his formal education in the Vedas and other religious texts.
