Summary meaning:Here again apart from locating oneself with reference to time , one locates himself with reference to place also.We are supposed to live in Jambu Dweepa, Bharatha Kanda which is south of the great mountain Maha meru.Then again this Bhasratha Kanda is blessed with many holy rivers and holy places.Then prayer is done to God to pardon sins committed by word, thought and deed, because this was done inspite of his great grace which made us be born as human beings after several wheels of birth.Also the sins performed during several ages in life is highlighted.Some of the sins specifically mentioned are those done while earning money without conscience, giving money to improper people, actions which did not suit the caste we are born in, sins due to non performance of actions which ought to have been done and so on. We pray God and tell him that we would take bath in holy pure water and then start the veda parayanas which is our duty as Brahmin.

4.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

After bath again change poonal by reciting manthra as given in s.No.1.Please note that now a days very rarely people take bath after mahaa sankalpam but do prokshana snanam i.e bath by sprikling of water on the head.

5.Kanda Rishi Tharpanam
1,Aachamanam
2,Shklaama baradharam
3.Om bhoo
4.Mamo partha samastha durida kshya dwara sri parameshwata preethyartham sravanyaam pournamaasyam adhyoyapakrama karmangam kanda rishi tharpanam karishye.
Wear poonal as garland and do tharpanam using water mixed with thil (black gingely) and akshatha
Each manthra has to be chanted thrice and tharpanam done.

1.Prajapathim kanda rishim tharpayami
2,Somam kanda rishim tharpayami
3.Agnim kanda rishim tharpayami
4.Viswaan devaan kanda rishim tharpayaami

Summary meaning:Tharpanam means really satisfying.By this tharpanam we satisfy the rishi(sages) of Soma(moon), Agni(fire), Viswaan devan(all gods looking after earth), etc.

5.Vedarambham

Though these are essential part of Avani avittam , I am not giving this because Vedic manthraas are very diffcult to transliterate in to English and reading them wrongly would be counter productive.

GREAT SERVICE YOU ARE RENDERING SIR. MY PRANAMS TO YOU

SUBRAMANIAN

Venkat said...

Dr. Raja

I was given this link by an uncle of mine, from Kerala. I wanted to know what is the difference between Rig and Yajur Avani Avittam. In the US, apparently both fall on the same day. In Singapore I understand they are on different days. I tried looking into the text and they appear to be similar

Kerala Brahmin said...

Dear Friend,
For Yajur Vedis Pournami is the fact that determines Avani Avittam and for Rig Vedis there should be Thiruonam star on that day. Mostly same manthras are used but I understand that the Brahma Yagna Manthras are slightly different for Rig Vedis . I could not get at them in spite of best efforts, Ramachander

Nagasubramaniam said...

Sir,

I salute you Sir, for your great social service. I would be grateful, if you could describe at what stges of upakarma, pavithram and kattapul should be used and when not to be used so that we do not make errors in using them. Also please tell me if there is a difference in the Pavithram used for Amavasia Tharpanam and Avani Avittam or they are one and the same. Hope you would clarify this point immediately before the forthcoming Upakarma. Thanks and regards

Kerala Brahmin said...

d,
When you are doing Achamanam , you should not use Pavithram . Other wise you have to wear it. Two ktta Pul are supposed to be put as Asanam , in front of your feet while sitting. Two katta pul are to be kept along with Pavithram when you are doing the Sankalpam. The pavithram for tharpanam and deivasam is made of three Durbai and that for all normal procedures made of two Durbai. With best wishes, Ramchander

nagam said...

Dear Sir

The Rig veda Avani Avittam falls on 6th Aug 09, the same day as that of Gayathri Japam.
Could you please clarify whether we should perform Jabam first or Avani Avittam first on that day . I am a Rig vedi.

Subramanian

Kerala Brahmin said...

The Rig Vedis perform Avani Avittam when Sravana (thiruonam ) star is there. On 6th this star is there up to 1.42 PM.(according to some panchangams up to 10 AM) It coyuld be preferably be performed in the morning.Ramachander

Pranaam - Today a lot of things that had meaning are being forgotten as no one has the time to sit and understand things. You are rendering a great service.

I run a retirement village called Melur Meadows. If you are in India it will be my pleasure if you stay with us for a few days. It is a calm quiet place and a great place to meditate in.

With Best Wishes
