Customs and Traditions:Brother´ s Upanayanam
2013-06-02
Name: Anjaly Krishnamoorthy Hi we are form a orthodox Brahman family.My father has decided to do my brother' s Upanayanam very soon(15 years old).He is planning to do it traditionally.I have read that it involves shaving and piercing a hole in the boy' s ear.Is it like that?I will be very interested if it is in such a way.....:P(because he used pull my rings while fighting...:LOL!!!! NOW I CAN RETURN IT!!!:P just joking) My mother and I asked him to come in female dress many times.But he hates it.He is my twin brother(he is elder). He never loves to wear such the female dress? He is even afraid of needles, so he even doesn' t go to hospitals hehe for medicines...:D. But when it is done in the traditional manner shouldn' t we make holes in the ear?Is the nose piercing necessary?? Will the piercing hurt him a lot? I don' t remember mine. All i know is that nose piercing is of terrible pain.It was unfordable for me. What all ornaments should he wear? Is it necessary that he should lengthen his hair?He is not having any facial hairs.But he already have hair up to the shoulder.Because my father did not allow him to cut since last 1 year.Is it necessary that he should wear girls dress? I asked my father secretly because now he is having vacation.At least at home.He said OK...:D.My mother also loves it.How can i make him agree to pierce his ear' s before the ceremony.????
I don' t know which type of ear ring will be good for him?? I don' t think he will put on the larger jimmikka and the rest.I am sure he will throw away those things.I have many sets of heavy rings.I would like him to put those stuffs.But how??How to make him put on my dress?. This is the best time that i can play around him..:P
So i have a few doubts: how long should he wear the rings.For how much time should he keep the bald hair??Is there any role for me, being the younger one? Is it necessary to get a hole in the nose also??Will it hurt him much??How long will he have the pain??
