Sendan Children Advance in Life

Here is Bodhinatha signing the certificates for Shaila Sendan’s karnavedha samskara (ear-piercing) and Velan Sendan’s vidyarambha samskara (first learning).

The parents previously mark the spot where they want the ear pierced.

Paramacharya Ceyonswami and Siddhanathaswami pierced both ears at the same time. Shaila did not seem to feel anything other than to be delighted.

Her younger brother Velan then wrote his first letter A in a plate of rice. And then they both made offerings of grains into the homa along with Bodhinatha.
