The word upanayanam samakaram in Sanskrit is composed of two parts – upa, meaning near and nayanam means eye and samskaram means  to make perfect or to polish. The ceremony is one of 16 major rites of karma. The upanayanam ceremony that invests the wearer with the sacred thread is often considered a socially and spiritually significant rite (or samskara)and then only he becomes Brammachari. so, it is called Brahmmopadesam.  After the upanayanam, the boy is initiated into the study of the Vedas. The first birth is physical. Upanayanam is the second birth, birth into the spirituality. (Hence the name dwija, twice-born) the age at which upanayanam is performed is 7 years
