Shastrokt (Vedic) Importance : This prashan is made as per Kashyap Samhita on auspicious Pushya Nakshatra in pure and sterilized environment while reciting Vedic hymns and Navkara Mantra. This Jain Suvarnaprashan is made as per Jain restrictive practices and thus brahmighrut (base) is used instead of honey. The benefits of this method are mostly same as the regular Mantraushadhi Suvarnaprashan.
Relevant Mantra :
सुवर्णप्राशनं हि एतत मेधाग्निबलवर्धनम् । आयुष्यं मंगलं पुण्यं विष्यं वर्ण्यं गर्हापहम् ।।
मासात् परममेघावी व्याधिभिर्नच धृष्टकेतु । षड्भिर्मासे श्रुतधर: सुवर्णप्राशनाद् भवेत्। ।।
