Mundan

The big day of the Mundan arrived.  At first the power was out and the ceremony started with just the light coming in from the skylights.  It started with a priest leading a series of mantras with the little guy and his parents.  He didn't have to sit there the whole time but I was impressed how quiet and attentive he was throughout most of it. 


Fortunately, the lights came on early in the ceremony:

Paul, as the mother's brother, had the honor of being the first one to cut off the first five locks of his hair:

Sigh--goodbye babyhood!
