Mundan Samskāra (Leicester) – Hindu head shaving ceremony

The mundana samskāra, is the eighth of the sixteen Hindu samskāras (sacraments), in which a child receives their first haircut. The hair from birth is considered to be associated with past karma from previous lives. Thus at the time of the mundana, the child is freshly shaven to signify freedom from the past and moving into the future. The rite is performed as a special ceremony in most Hindu family homes, for young girls and boys.
