Teaching of the first letters to a child.


Teaching of the first letters is an important event in a child's life as it happens only once in the life time. The reading of the first letters were done between 3 - 5 years of age. Before somebody unintentionally starts teaching the child his first letters.  A small ceremony is organised at home for the occasion. Usually at a auspicious time called "Saraswathi yoga" and the father of the child, a priest or a person with good educational background and a social standing will teach the child his/her first letters.

Auspicious Dates in 2003 are the following but  you need to consult a good astrologer to check which days are the best suited according to the time of the birth of the child and find out the auspicious moment in regard to the current place of residence. If you can not find a suitable astrologer locally, then you can  consult this site. For more information about  what is an auspicious day and what is an auspicious time please click here.
