The use of the word 'sanskar' is not found in the vedic literature. the description of the sacraments is mainly found in the grihmasutras, but in these also the word sanskar has been used in the sense of sanctification of the sacrificial material. in the vaikhanas smriti sutra (200 to 500 ad), the first clear distinction is found between the sacraments and sacrifices related to the body.
In this book named sanskar prakash, 16 sacraments have been described in detail.
