8 yrs is indicated for brahmOpadesam.
This has nothing to do with the prArabdA that decides the life span.

I have heard that when upanayana was performed when there was no Gurubala, untoward things such s death, etc have occurred to the boy or close family members. What have our Shankaracharyas or dharma shastras said in this matter ?
