Annaprāśanaṁ

Ṣaṇmāsaścainaṃ annaṃ prāśayēt laghu hitaśca[1]

Even though the Indian traditional knowledge system is very vast in volume and variety, we find extraordinary instances of interdisciplinary relation and coordination. Here Annaprāśanaṁ is the saṁskāraḥ in which the child is fed solid food for the first time. Both in Āyurvēdaḥ[2] and dharma śāstraṃ stated annaprāśanaṁ. It is instructed to perform the saṁskāraḥ on the sixth or eight-month from the child's birth. Or whichever time felt to be auspicious by the elders of the family. The saṁskāraḥ is to be performed after the child gets his/her tooth. A sweet dish made by milk, jaggery and rice, called pāyasaṁ, is fed with a golden spoon or ring by the elders.

tatōnnaprāśanaṃ māsi ṣaṣṭhe kāryaṃ yathāvidhiǀ aṣṭamē vāpi kartavyaṃ yacceṣṭaṃ mañgalaṃ kulēǁ[3]
ṣaṣṭhe māse annaprāśanaṃ jāteṣu daṃteṣu vāǀ[4]

After annaprāśanaṁ, on the same day, a small display of different objects is arranged. The child is placed in front of the objects and the elders observe which object does the child touch. The objects placed normally are - pen & book, gold, knife, cloth, utensils. It is believed that whichever the object the child touches, he makes a living related to that object. For example, if the child touches a pen and book he is believed to become well read and makes a living out of teaching. This occasion is called as jīvikāparīkṣā.
