Meaning of Mundan
Mundan Sanskar is a Hindu tradition to tonsure the hair of a child for the first time after birth. A Mundan Ceremony is always performed in the most auspicious Mundan Muhurat at the age of 7, 9 or 11 months. Some people prefer to do it at a later age between 1-3 years. The Mundan Sanskar of a girl is called Chaula Karma and is performed in the even years.
Significance of Mundan Ceremony and Mundan Muhurat
As per Hindu traditions, the tonsure or Mundan Sanskar on Shubh Mundan muhurat purifies a child from its past birth sins and negativities. A soul attains a human form after passing through 84 lakh Yonis with each having a certain impact on human birth. Shaving of a baby's head purges the past sins and liberates him/her from all the obstructive influences. According to Yajurveda, Mundan ceremony or Sanskar is a very significant Karma in enhancing the wisdom, health, age, strength, and agility of the child.
Benefits of Mundan Ceremony
- Scientifically, in the womb of the mother, there are various harmful bacterias that get stuck on an infant's hair. These bacterias cannot be removed even after several washes. The shaving of the baby's head allows the removal of this hair and boosts healthy and good hair growth.
- After Mundan Sanskar, the body temperature of the baby becomes normal and thus they experience good mental and physical growth.
- The tonsure of the head allows proper absorption of Sunlight which is a source of Vitamin- D. It offers uniform blood circulation in the scalp of the child resulting in good hair growth.
- Mundan reduces the toothache that occurs when the first teeth of a child emerge.
- As per scriptures, Mundan brings auspiciousness in a child's life and endows eternal abundance and wisdom.
