The same rituals and traditions are followed for Tonsure or shaving of a child’s head. In simple Hindi language, the act of Mundan also is a auspicious occasion that is only performed at a specific time or Shubh Muhurat. A Muhurat is that time when you can receive the maximum benefits of performing your deeds.
This ceremony performed on the hair of a child for the first time since its birth is called Mundan Sanskar for boys, while for girls, the same tradition is called Chaula Karma. The Mundan Sanskar is generally performed in odd years i.e. when the boy is 3 years or 5 years or 7 years. The Chaula Karma, on the other hand, is performed in even years i.e. when the girl child is 2 years, 4 years or 6 years. The most beneficial Mundan Sanskar is performed when the child is 1 year old.

Everything practiced in Indian rituals is performed in accordance with a particular format or a belief or scientific reasons. For Mundan Sanskar according to the Vedas, it is considered to be highly important in order to release the child from the karmas of his/her previous birth. By shaving off the hairs of a child, we actually disengage a child from his/her previous birth activities and any ill fate if any.
However, there is also a scientific theory attached to it. Considering the medical point of view, Mundan Sanskar or Chaula Karma is performed because the unborn child lives in a watery-environment which is home to bacteria of many kinds. These can’t be washed off either since they populate in the very roots of the hair. The tonsure or the Mundan of a child must be performed before the child turns 1 year in age so these bacterias don’t grow.
There are a number of scientific reasons that support the act of Mundan Sanskar or Chaula Karma.
It is generally said that after the Chaula Karma or the Mundan Sanskar is performed, the temperature of the child returns to normal pacing a better mental growth and overall good health. It is also said that after the Muhurat is performed the child does not suffer from any health-related problems.
The problem of a toothache or the beginning of oral teeth formation proceeds with a great deal of pain which is however subsided after the Mundan is performed.
After the shaving of the hair, the child gets enough Vitamin D which not only enhances the blood circulation in the scalp of the child leading to better hair growth in the future.
According to the Yajur Veda, it is said that the completion of mundan is a very important sacrament for the health, age, strength, and agility of the child.
Months: Mundan should be performed in the month of Jyeshtha for the eldest born, Asadha for the younger one or in Magha or Phalguna.
Dates: Best dates to perform the ceremony are 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, and 13th .
Days: Best days for conducting the Mundan ceremony are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Friday is specially considered to be highly auspicious for the Mundan of a girl child.
