In Hinduism, a Yajñopavītam is a thin consecrated cord, composed of distinct cotton strands, worn to symbolize the permission given to him to do Sandhyavandanam and Gayatri Mantra.The sacred Yajñopavītam is known by many names (varying by region and community), such as Bratabandha, Janivaara, Jandhyam, Poita, Poonal, Janeu, Lagun, Yajnopavita, Yagyopavit, Yonya and Zunnar.
The sacred Upnayanam ceremony that invests the wearer with the sacred Yajñopavītam is often considered a socially and spiritually significant rite (or samskara). It has varying formats across Hindu communities and is also called by varying names, including Upanayana, Brahmopadesham, Munji, Munj, Janeu rasm and Bratabandha.Among Hindus, the ceremony was once associated with the higher castes.
Though far less common, it is sometimes conducted for girls. In some regions of modern North India and also among a few South Indian castes, the ceremony is often conducted as an immediate precursor to wedding ceremonies, instead of during adolescence; in other regions it is almost always associated with adolescence;with regards to this it is very important.
