The mother and father start the ritual with pranayamam, prayers and chanting manthiram in presence of the family priest and family members. Rice grains are spread on a plate and the father writes the chosen name while chanting the mantra. Then he whispers the name into the child's right ear, followed by the blessings of the elders and ends with a feast with family and friends.
