    Upanayanam in Kalady

    Dear Members,

    We are a US based couple wishing to perform the poonal ceremony for our son in Adi Sankara Nilayam in Kalady. Since we are so far away, we seek this community's help in knowing if there are any Vaadhyaars that could perform this ceremony for us on a subcontract basis in Kalady. We are able to get a big hall and accommodations with the Chinmaya Mission there. However, the mission does not arrange for any priests or other things like cooking, flowers etc.

    We are Tamil Iyers and would require the services of an Iyer priest. If anybody has any information that could help us in this regard, we would be most grateful for the same.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Ravi K.

    Dear Ravi :

    Pasting the reply received from my friend who had performed his son's upanayam at Kalady in Apr'10 this year.

    This information may be useful.


    Regarding the Upanayanam...
    It is done at the Mutt in Kalady.. There are two halls which can be booked. It will be a 2day function.
    For Nandi they do not conduct the homam being a mutt.
    The vadiars are all so good, and at the end of the function the group of children from the veda pata shala come over to chant as well.
    These vadiars do not go else where and are dedicated to the functions in the mutt.
    Those who are interested in doing the Upanayanam in a Vaideha way... THIS IS THE BEST PLACE....
    They provide rooms, breakfast,lunch and dinner as well. All without onion at a very reasonable price.
    The Mutt phone no is 0484- 2462350.

    Regards

    Sanki

    Dear Sanki,

    Thank you for your post. This is really encouraging. We did call up the number you have mentioned and were asked to call back on Nov 23, as the Manager and Asst Mgr were out of town.

    You did mention that they do not conduct the homam for Naandi, as they are a mutt. I am interested in knowing if and how your friend conducted that ceremony.

    You may write to me directly at ravi_krishna@rocketmail.com, if that is convenient for you, so that we may not crowd up this thread. I can then post a summary here.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Dear members,

    We did call up the mutt in Kalady. Their numbers are 9846749473/4842462350. You may speak with the manager Mr. Subramaniam or Mr. Surya. He was very cordial. They would do all the arrangements including the Vaadhyaar, food, and bakshanam. They also have a Veda paathashaalaa, and the children from there will come over and recite the Vedas after the Poonal ceremony. I would suggest that interested members call up the Mutt and ask them about the availability for the dates that you have in mind, as also any other questions that they may have. We plan to visit them on our next trip to India in March. Maybe we will have more information by then.

    Regards,

    Ravi
