Due to various reasons, the upanayanam of our son could not be conducted earlier. He is now 28 years old and likely to get married during Sept 2012. It is an arranged marriage. We intend to conduct the upanayanam sometime earlier to that on a suitable muhurtham. Is there any rule that the father should not perform brahmopadesam and receive kanyaadaanam during the same year. I would be glad if someone could throw some light on this.
