The mother, holding the child covered in clean cloth, should be situated on the husband’s right side.

 

She should sit facing East on kusha grass with tips facing North.

The father should touch the mouth, nostrils, eyes, and ears of the child with his right hand and say:

 

om prajapatih vishnu rishih

om ko ‘si katamo ‘si esho ‘si amrito ‘si’ ahaspatyam masam pravisha shri (name of son) dasa

 

“You are immortal like the Lord. Oh……..(name of son) enter in this solar month.”

“May the Lord consign you to the day. May the day consign you to the night. May the night consign you to the day and night. May day and night consign you to half months. May the half month consign you to the full months. May the months consign you to the seasons. May the sasons consign you to the year. May the years consign you to long life, oh………….(name of child).”

 

The husband should whisper the name in the left ear of his wife saying:

 

shri (name of child) deva sharma ayam te putra “………..is your son.”

 

He should give the child back to his wife’s hands.

 

He should offer wood silently into the fire.

He should perform Shatyayana Homa, Vamadevya Ganam and the other rites of Udicya Karma. He should give dakshina to the initiated Vaishnavas and brahmanas.

 

This is the Nama Karana rite according to the followers of the Sama Veda.

This ceremony should be performed every month on the tithi and paksha (waxing or waning phase of the moon corresponding to the tithi and paksha on which the child was born.3

 

The father should take his morning bath, perform worship of Lord Vishnu and recite Svasti Vacana (om svasti no govinda etc). He should chant “om tad vishnoh” etc and “om krishno vai saccidanada ghana etc.

 

He should perform Kushandika ending with Virupaksha Japa, calling the fire named “Balada.”

 

Then he should offer ghee-soaked wood of pradesha length into the fire silently and perform Vyasta Samasta Mahavyahriti Homa:

 

He should then offer oblations with the following three mantras:

 

om acyutanantabhyam svaha –
acyutanantabhyam idam na mama

damodara purushottamabhyam idam na mama
om vasudeva vamana vishnu vaikunthadibhyah svaha –

The father should offer as many oblations as he can using the mantras “om tad vishnoh -” and “om krishno vai saccidananda-.”
