Karnavedha or ear piercing for child is one of the sixteen major sanskaras (Solah sanskar or Shodasha Samskara) in Hinduism.
Especially, for Brahmins it is an essential ritual in their life. Generally, ear piercing ceremony is performed during Mundan or Chudakarana of a child (baby’s first haircut) or at Aksharabhyasam (Vidhyarambham or initiation of child into education).
Apart from these common Panchanga shuddi checks, the general astrological quality based on the horoscope for the moment is also analysed. Also, the factors such as Solar and Lunar eclipses, Sankranti and Sandhyakalam are considered during the Muhurtha search.
There are variations in regional practices for selecting Muhurtha for Karnavedha. You are advised to take these factors also into consideration while selecting a Muhurta from the list of time slots provided by Hindupad.
