BRAHMOPADESHAM

Brahmin males have to undergo Brahmopadesham  when they turn around ten years old, to initiate them into Vedic studies. The key ritual during the Upanayana is that of putting a Janivaara or sacred thread across the left shoulder of the boy. The Janivaara consists of three threads made of cotton. The boy, once initiated, is called a Brahmachari or twice born and is expected to perform japa or sandhyavandana.. 


Another relation is celebrating the boy coming to age of 10 years......  celebration to initiate the boy to be BRAHMACHARI........ the family spends lots of money to express their happiness and joy with their family, relations and friends.......
The grand function was in Sri Mahalingeshwara Temple, Brahmavara..... followed by grand lunch and gift....




After lunch...... back home and nice siesta.......
Evening to Manipal, visit to Vishala Keshav Bhat....... dinner at Vijaya at Kadiyali.... and back to Birthi......
