I have read in some answers that the Gayatri Mantra is taken as the Mother,and the Guru is the father,in Upanayana.


1)Why the Gayatri Mantra,and not another Mantra?

2)Why is the Gayatri Mantra taken as the mother,the guru as father and and not the opposite?

3)Can someone list out the general proceedings of Upanayana,as it happened in Vedic times?

4)Does Upanayana take place today?If so for whom?Is it in the same way as was in Vedic times?
