Aanand’s Vidhyarambam (Aksharabyasam)
We performed our dear son’s vidhayarambham ceremony at our home. Priest from Shri rama temple at Lemont, Chicago had graced the occasion and blessed the LO.
“Vidhya” means Education. “Aarambham” means to start. Before starting formal education (at school/at home), we pray the almighty to bless the child with good knowledge and intelligence. It is also called “Aksharabyasam”, which means learning to read/write.
Skandhu’s paternal grandparents, viewed the ceremony over “face-time” chat (Thanks to the technology!) and his cousins gifted him a beautiful card
