Smartha Yagnopavita (punal). A sacred thread worn by Brahmins and Brahmacharis. 18 pcs.
Introducing our Smartha Yagnopavita (punal). This is a sacred thread worn by Hindu Brahmins. As youth, young brahmin boys are initiated as ‘brahmacharis’, in a ceremony called the ‘Upanayanam’. After the upanayanam, brahmins change their punal, or Yagnopavita, in an annual festival called ‘Avani Avittam’. The punal is made up of three threads, with immense spiritual power concentrated in the knot that ties them together. This pack contains 18 punals, ensuring enough to last multiple ceremonies.
