A Mundan is an important ceremony for Hindus. Mundan ceremony is
performed due to a belief that the newborn baby’s hair has the undesired traits of the past life.
Hence, the hair of the newborn baby is considered impure as it may have the negative effects of
the past life on the future life. So, head shaving is done to purify the soul of the baby and ensure
the prosperous life of the baby.As per the Griha Sutras, this sanskar should take place at the
end of first year or before the expiry of the third year.
In this puja a havan is organised and the mother sits with the child in her lap facing the west
side of the havan. The pandit shaves of a tuft of hair of the baby while chanting hymns. The
barber is honoured by a puja. After that the barber shaves the child's hair completely.
