The Amrit Ceremony
Sikh Missionary Society: Sikhism: Ceremonies: Amrit Ceremony

Amrit Ceremony

Amrit Preparation
Amrit and Anand Karaj  are the major Sikh ceremonies celebrated by the Sikhs in presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Amrit is prepared by the Panj Pyaras by reciting Bani and moving Khanda into the mixture of water and sugar plums in a Sarb Loh Bata (all steel cauldron). 
Five Beloveds Initiated Amrit
Normally the male and female Sikh children are expected to get Amrit initiation when they are old enough to understand the  obligations of their faith.
Amrit Ceremony
It is believed that new life starts after Amrit ceremony. The ceremony is traced since the times of Guru Nanak Dev but Khande Di Pahul ceremony was started by Guru Gobind Singh Ji on March 29, 1699 at the time of the creation of Khalsa at Sri Kesgarh, Anandpur Sahib in Punjab.
