Nishu's Vidyarambham at Kollur Mookambika temple

Vidyarambham (Vidya means "knowledge" , arambham means "beginning') is a Hindu tradition where children between two and three years old are formally initiated into the letters of the alphabet.
Initiation into the world of alphabets usually begins with the writing of the mantra

"Om hari sri ganapataye namah". Hari refers to the Lord, sri, to prosperity.

The mantra is written in a tray of rice grains.

Then, the priest would write the mantra on the child's tongue with gold.

Writing on grains denotes the acquisition of knowledge, which leads to prosperity.
Writing on the tongue with gold invokes the grace of the Goddess of Learning, by which one attains the wealth of true knowledge.
