The Mantras for Rig Veda Upakarma procedure 2015

Rig  Vedi Avani Avittam for the year 2015 (28 August 2015)*

                           Avani Avittam 28 August 2015 (Friday )

                            (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)

(For the past 15 years , I have been putting the   for the rig Vedis, the same collection of Manthras   like Yajur vedis.  Being a Yajur vedi  , I have seen the rig Vedis also doing   the same rituals   as Yajur Vedis.  A  learned Gentleman from Madras  viz Sri Mani Narayan wrote to me   that  the manthras , I was giving was wrong and the correct manthras   are available  in a book by  Seri L.Anantha Narayana Sastri and published by  R.S.Vadhyar, Palakkad.  Lat year I got the book, To my surprise  I found all the rituals before Mahasankalpa    were Pujas and Homas, which cannot be performed    without the help of   the learned priest.   They are

1,Vighneswara Pooja

2.Sankalpa Punyahavachanam

3.Aghni Mukham

4.Veda Vyasa Pooja

5.Pradhana AAjyaa hoothaya

6,Pradhana  Charu homa

7.Uthsarjanarthe  Veda Aarambh

8.Home sesha

       The Kanda Rishi Tharpanam of the Yajur Vedis is to be replaced by A very elaborate  Deva –Rishi –Tharpanam  , which is again  is followed by Gayathri Homa      and Veda Aramba,  Since I was trying     to give Manthras for people    who   cannot  get help of Vadhyars , I  am giving below, Yajnopavitha Dharana  Manthra,  Mahasankalpam and Deva Rishi Pithru Tharpanam , followed by Brahma  Yagna  and the Gayathri japa  manthras   for the 30 August 2015)

1.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

( Manthra for wearing  Poonal)

a.Aachamanam:Shuklaam Bharadharam……….      Santhaye

b.Om Bhoo…………..Bhoorbhavaswarom

c.Mamo patha samastha duritha kshya dwara sri paameshwara preethyartham

Sroutha smartha vihitha sadachara  nithya karmaanushtanaa yogyatha sidhyartham  brhma teja abhivrudyartham yagnopaveetha dharanam karishye.

d.Yagnopaveetha  dharana maha manthrasya

Parabrhma rishi(Touch forehead)

Trushtup chanda (touch below nose)

Paramathma devatha (touch heart)

e.Yagnopaveetha dharane viniyoga

Wear Poonal one by one by reciting(poonal should be held by both hands, the tie in the poonal being held above by the right hand facing upwards)

Yagnopaveetham paramam pavithram  praja pathe,

Yat sahajam purasthad aayushyam

Agriyam prathi muncha shubram yagnopaveetham balamasthu theja.

f.After wearing all poonals one by one  do Aachamanam

g.Remove the old poonals  and break them to pieces by reciting

Upaveetham bhinna thanthum jeernam kasmala dooshitham, visrujami jale punarbrahman varcho deergayurasthu me.

h.Do aachamanam.

 

Summary meaning: I wear the white yagnopavitha that is purifying , which was born along with brahma, which is capable of increasing life .I am sure this would give glory and strength to me.I am destroying the dirty , soiled yasgnopavita .

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.

3.Maha Samkalpam

(28 August 2015   after Madhyaanikam and Brahma yagnam@)

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.

3.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

Rig  Vedi Avani Avittam for the year 2015 (24 September 2015)*

                     (As per  the  Acharyal Madathu  Panchangam  for Manmatha year)

                           Avani Avittam 24 September 2015 (Thursday )

                            (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)

(For the past 15 years , I have been putting the   for the rig Vedis, the same collection of Manthras   like Yajur vedis.  Being a Yajur vedi  , I have seen the rig Vedis also doing   the same rituals   as Yajur Vedis.  A  learned Gentleman from Madras  viz Sri Mani Narayan wrote to me   that  the manthras , I was giving was wrong and the correct manthras   are available  in a book by  Seri L.Anantha Narayana Sastri and published by  R.S.Vadhyar, Palakkad.  Lat year I got the book, To my surprise  I found all the rituals before Mahasankalpa    were Pujas and Homas, which cannot be performed    without the help of   the learned priest.   They are

1,Vighneswara Pooja

2.Sankalpa Punyahavachanam

3.Aghni Mukham

4.Veda Vyasa Pooja

5.Pradhana AAjyaa hoothaya

6,Pradhana  Charu homa

7.Uthsarjanarthe  Veda Aarambh

8.Home sesha

       The Kanda Rishi Tharpanam of the Yajur Vedis is to be replaced by A very elaborate  Deva –Rishi –Tharpanam  , which is again  is followed by Gayathri Homa      and Veda Aramba,  Since I was trying     to give Manthras for people    who   cannot  get help of Vadhyars , I  am giving below, Yajnopavitha Dharana  Manthra,  Mahasankalpam and Deva Rishi Pithru Tharpanam , followed by Brahma  Yagna  and the Gayathri japa  manthras   for the 30-8-2015.)

1.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

( Manthra for wearing  Poonal)

a.Aachamanam:Shuklaam Bharadharam……….      Santhaye

b.Om Bhoo…………..Bhoorbhavaswarom

c.Mamo patha samastha duritha kshya dwara sri paameshwara preethyartham

Sroutha smartha vihitha sadachara  nithya karmaanushtanaa yogyatha sidhyartham  brhma teja abhivrudyartham yagnopaveetha dharanam karishye.

d.Yagnopaveetha  dharana maha manthrasya

Parabrhma rishi(Touch forehead)

Trushtup chanda (touch below nose)

Paramathma devatha (touch heart)

e.Yagnopaveetha dharane viniyoga

Wear Poonal one by one by reciting(poonal should be held by both hands, the tie in the poonal being held above by the right hand facing upwards)

Yagnopaveetham paramam pavithram  praja pathe,

Yat sahajam purasthad aayushyam

Agriyam prathi muncha shubram yagnopaveetham balamasthu theja.

f.After wearing all poonals one by one  do Aachamanam

g.Remove the old poonals  and break them to pieces by reciting

Upaveetham bhinna thanthum jeernam kasmala dooshitham, visrujami jale punarbrahman varcho deergayurasthu me.

h.Do aachamanam.

 

Summary meaning: I wear the white yagnopavitha that is purifying , which was born along with brahma, which is capable of increasing life .I am sure this would give glory and strength to me.I am destroying the dirty , soiled yasgnopavita .

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.

3.Maha Samkalpam

3.Yagnopa veetha dharana manthra

Hindupad is very thankful to Mr. Rajathatha who maintains several blogs on Hinduism, He accepted and allowed us to publish his content on Hindupad. This post is taken from his Rajathatha Blog.
