The acarya should worship the graduate by washing his feet etc.

 

The graduate should approach a cart yoked with two cows. He should touch the two poles which fix the yoke to the cart and mount the car, saying the three lines of the verse:

 

om narada rishih
anushtup chandah
shri vishnuh devata
rathabhimarshane viniyogah
om vanaspate vidvango hi bhuyah
asmatsakha prataranah suvirah
gobhih sannadho’si vidayasva

 

“Oh Lord of the forest, be steady. Oh friend to us, yoked to the cows, full of strength, you lead us to the Lord. Impart strength to us.”

 

He should sit on the cart saying the last line of the verse:

 

om parameshvara rishih
gayatri chandah
shri vishnuh devata
rathabhimarshane viniyogah
om asthata te jayatu jetvani

 

“May he who has mounted you (the cart) conquer the enemies.”

 

Driving the cart to the East or North he should go some distance, then turn to the right and return towards the acarya.

 

The acarya should worship him again with footwash etc.

 

The father (of the graduate) should offer the acarya and vaishnava brahmanas dakshina. Everyone should be fed. To allay any offenses, the participants should perform Krishna Nama Japa and pay obeisances to Krishna and the Vaishnavas.

 

This is the Samavartana rite.

 

Thus ends the book “Sat Kriya Sara Dipika”.
