The Manusmriti says that a child's first birth is from thewomb of the mother and the second birth is when the yagyopavit is wornfor the first time.The yagyopavit sanskar isolates the fruits of the karmas of one'sprevious births and to start afresh with new account of good deeds.Manusmriti says that nobody is entitled to perform any other sanskarwithout having gone through the yagyopavit sanskar.After undergoing this sanskar, a boy becomes entitled to otherreligious rites.
