Samavartana (Leaving the Gurukula):

 

This ceremony is performed when the student finishes his Vedic studies.

 

@FOOTNOTE
The Samavartana samskara is performed for those students (upakurvana brahmacaris) who, after completing their studies, have decided to eventually live as a grihastha or married man, rather than accept the vow of naishthika (permanent brahmacarya). Because the graduate student is sprinkled with water in this ceremony he is called “snataka”. A snataka is considered ready to teach and he may attend seminars given by others to further his knowledge.
END FOOTNOTE

“In this water Narayana, Ananta and others have entered. I reject the inauspicious fires which cover, which conceal, which contaminate, which cause pain, and bring destruction to the mind, body and senses.”

“Bathe me with those things which attain fame by serving you – songs of praise, your bed, seat, shoes, umbrella, fan, sacred thread and cloth.”

 

The student should sprinkle himself with water once more without mantra.
