    I have a vow to tonsure. Can I tonsure at Pamban Swamigal’s samadhi. I
    ve been coming to his Samadhi since last year and I was surprised to see a provision on the office board “mudi kanikai”.When asked they said I’ll have to take a barber with me and another person who’s been associated with the temple for 5 years now said that He has not seen anyone tonsuring there.Also because its a Samadhi I’m absolutely perplexed about it. I’m also scared about it as I didn’t go to the temple on the pournami day in the month of May and on the pournami day of June My Mother was admitted in the ICU. With His grace My Mother is fine now. Please let me know about this.
