  3. Thanks to Mrs Akhila Sundarram for simply explaining the fact that the Hindu Dharma can be practiced anywhere in the world

  4. Sir,
    we all happy if you could arrange to the full mantras of yajur vedam avani vitam IN TAMIL

  5. avani month have the two no moon.so that, Have any problem for fix, celebrate function and also any thing have differently happen in the world?

  6. To the best of my knowledge, (some one correct me if I am wrong ) there is no rule anywhere that stipulates that Hindu dharma can only be practiced in India. The sankalpa can be suitably amended. For eg. we say dhakshiney parsway, meaning, I am offering this puja, sitting in the south of India, which would not hold good, if I did this puja in Delhi.

    Rigidity and absoluteness is the hallmark of all religions excepting Sanatana Dharma.

  7. Thank you for helpng us to follow our tradition thro’ your deeds.
    This owes every one’s appreciation and gratitude!!

  8. I have checked the SAnkalpa dates etc and they are correct and are for year 2011. Hindu rituals were meant to be performed in India only and so wherever we are the sanklpa mentions only India.

  9. send avani avittam 2011 mantras yajurvedam sankalpam,kandarishi tarpanam etc., in tamil by mail or suggest tamil version of mantras web site/ yaou can also call me 9445377243
