BRAHMOPADESHAM (UPANAYANA)


When the boy child reaches the age of 9-10 years, parents will have an urge for celebrations, calling friends abd relations for a social get-together...... and a ceremony is performed, for him to learn veda, shastra and mould him to perform all ceremonies, pooja etc...... called BRAHMOPADESHAM..... such was an occasion for Praveen Bhat, a distant relation. The ceremony took place in a large hall, called kalyana mantap.... where large number of people can gather..... the ceremony was over before 9 am...... later there was a bhajan group with a lady on a lead voice..... who entertained people gathered with devotional songs till 12 noon......
Afterwards...  grand lunch on banana leaf for more than 600 people with so many items served very orderly....
On the way back visit to Jayalakshmi Bhat;s house in Mayagundi....... rest, coffee.....
Back to Birthi House......
