The Keshlochan ritual of Acharya Sukumalnandi was performed today at Adinath Bhawan, Sec-11 where numerous devotees were present to witness the ritual.
In this ritual, the hair from face and head has to be removed by pulling it using hands, not scissors. The saints have to perform the ritual at least thrice in a year, and no one can attain the position of saint without going through this process.
The event started at 7AM and continued till 9.30 AM where Sukumalnandi himself was pulling his hair, but not a hint of pain was seen on his face. The audience on the other hand had mixed emotions seeing the process.
