Hello everyone. My parents decided to have thread ceremony (Upanayanam) for my brother. He is 22 years old boy. He is feeling shy to get headshave and sit naked for oil bath. He is afraid to get ear piercing also. How should I convince him?
It is very interesting actually. The boy's head is shaved but hair is left at 5 places on the head called pancha sikhalu. If beard and moustache are present they are also clean shaved. Then armpits of the boy are shaved. Then he should remove the clothes and sit for oil bath. All the women in the function apply turmeric paste and oil on the body. And then he is given bath with water.
Yes shreya ..that feeling lots of shame feeling not all boys some boys shame feeling shreya..yes shreya he body frst headshave and bread moustache shave..after oil bath and turmeric full body apply..abbha my opinion that feeling very happy
