Ayush Homam & Mottai

Not open for further replies.

My daughter will turn one year old on July28, I want to perform Ayush homam, I want to know whether this is performed based on the completion of 1year according to english calender or according to the day when the birth nakshatram falls. Please clarify

Also I want to know whether can I perform head shave rituals(mottai) on the same day, please advice on the suitable day for this ritual. I got suggestions from friends that it has to be performed before the completion of 11months.
