This is also applicable to mantras of Maha Sankalpam given below.

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 sprinkling of water on the head.

2,Shklaama baradharam

3.Om bhoo

4.Mamo patha samastha durida kshya dwara  sri parameshwata preethyartham sravanyaam  pournamaasyam  adhyoyapakrama  karmangam kanda rishi tharpanam karishye.

5.Vedarambham

Wear the Yagnopavitha over the left shoulder(Upaveethi) and do Aachamanam

Thus ends Brahma Yagna.

Brahma yagnam(sacrifice to Brahma) is the oblation offered to satisfy Devas, Rishis(sages) and Pithrus(ancestors). It is supposed to be performed daily after Madhyannikam, But nowadays it is done mainly on avani avittam days.

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.

    Please provide printing or save facilities so that we can have a copy on hand while doing the procedure. How can we perform the rituals through a net?

  2. Devarajan says:

    Very useful for people doing on their own

  3. Rohit says:

    Dear sir,

    The procedure is more of a broader sketch and not 100% convincing. It tends to get confusing some times, while the outline is mentioned, there is nothing mentioned about when to wear the DHARBA GRASS for which mantra, when to remove it and where to place/ dispose it off. These mantras are customised for every year hence the version has to reflect the current year’s date and applicability

    Pl rectify and then post it

  4. B.Vaithi subramanian Trichy says:

    A very good effort by the author.

  5. RAJ PARAM says:

    This is not organized well. I looked at different web site and all confusing and conflicting Manthras. Even procedures sending to Man to Mars won’t be this much complicated. This is frustrating.

  6. Harish Viswanathan says:

    Please make it in order to suit generation. I find there is no order

    Excellent service. Please continue to serve Hinduism.
    I did find a couple more links which I found useful. (mentioned in the above link-with illustrations!!)

  32. rajan says:

    Thanks, I donot know tamil to read even though i can speak. This was most useful to me. your work is most appreciated.
    Regards
    Rajan

  33. An Observer says:

    People like you do a HUGE disservice by publishing rotten material like this, however well intended. Your diction and pronunciation are absolutely terrible. Reciting what you have published is the same as reciting gibberish. This is not veda mantrams, it is just garbage. Before you start teaching others, please learn the subject matter from someone who is learned in such matters.

  34. n venkatesh says:

    thanks a ton for the excellant service , would have benefitted millions of brahims , also presented in a simple form ,pl continue the good effort

    N Venkatesh

  35. RAMAMOORTHY GANAPATHY says:

    The provision of formalities, mantras and other allied rituals published deserve appreciation from all who are interested to perform and follow these in spite of changing social conditions. The publisher ‘s efforts are highly commendable. It is not the language that should make any difference, but a user friendly language- ENGLISH, I feel is well received and easy to follow.

  36. Aravind says:

    Thank you for thw wonderful service. It helps people living abroad a lot. Additional Kudos for transliterating to English 🙂

  37. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    I would like to express my deepest and sincere gratitude to the Hindu Pad for coming up with this. I would’ve been lost without such guides. Thank you for helping out NRI Brahmins like myself and many others.

    • naveen.sanagala says:

      Thank you very much Shri Balaji for appreciating our efforts.. He are here to serve Hinduism more and more..

  38. Srinivasan says:

    @Govindarajah: I am not sure if realize that the mantrams are actually in Sansrit. All these years you have been reading/reciting Sanskrit mantrams written in Tamil. I don’t see how this is different from reciting Sanskrit words written in another language English. If Hinduism has to survive in the future it should make it easier for the younger generation who are spread all over the world. English is one of the great toolset to do that.

  39. b.sekar says:

    if you please send us the tamil audio for 2011 yajur upakarma to be performed on 13.08.2011, as we have been deceived that the CD purchased belongs to last year.
    sekar

  40. Krishnan says:

    Can anyone clarify on the sequence? If I remember the sequennce, it was: a) Kamo Karishit Japam, b) Mahasankapam, c) Brahma Yagyam, d) Yagyopaveetha Dharanam, e) Kaanda rishi tarpanam & pithru tarpanam. Is the order right?

  41. Krishnan says:

    Thank You very much! It is very useful for people like me in USA. Only one comment: some of the Sanskrit words are spelled by its tamil pronunciation. If you can correct it, people can pronounce the mantras corectly.

    • naveen.sanagala says:

      We would surely try to correct the Tamil pronunciation of the mantras.. Thank you very much for appreciation..

  42. naveen.sanagala says:

    @ Shri Subramaniam: Yajurveda Upakarma avani avittam mantrams are updated for 2011… Please check back once…

  43. Vinod says:

    @Govindarajah…please learn to appreciate the efforts rather than criticizing. Guess nobody has forced you to perform this in English. Dont discourage younger generation from doing their karma in a language which is comfortable to them. Thanks to the members of Hindu Pad. Keep the good work going. God Bless you all.

  44. Subramaniam Dharmarajan says:

    The mantras are correct, but the sankalpam is incorrect. They have published last years sankalpam (like tamil year name etc). Please do not follow without verifying the tamil year, nakshatra, thithi etc.

  45. Govindarajah says:

    Its in sorry state that awaniavitam upakarma to be profomed in engilsh rather than in
    mother tongue Tamil, pl upload tamil version

    thank you

    • Ravi K says:

      My dear friend,

      For Tamil version you can buy the paper from Giri Stores which has
      branches in Mumbai, Chennai , Coimbatore etc. this site is useful to those who dont know
      to read tamil

  46. chandrasekaran says:

    A very useful effort and will definitely benefit lot of brahmins who are craving for such kind of material, to recite without fault when doing the rituals and following chants of sastrigal. Let God bless you with all benefits for this kind of punya karyam.

  47. shivkumar sharma says:

    hari om,
    A good and appreciable service. looking forward for many more events of vedic Hymns.Do post more.We shall follow your guidance.

    best wishes

  48. v.srinivasan says:

    I have only one clarification reqd: the mantras say the locations as available in India, I think. Is there have to be a different wordings for the location( like surrounded by several rivers, mountains, forests etc.)? But the mantras are vedic and handed over to us by Rishis no change should be made. will it be in order even though we chant the locations as told in the vedas, though we recite them from a country like USA, for example?

  49. Subramaniam Dharmarajan says:

    Thanks a lot for the above post on the mantras. They are very useful for people like us in the USA, who do not have personal guidance available so easily. A small note on the sankalpam – instead of Jamboo dweepe, the mantra should be – “KRAUNCHA DWEEPE RAMANAKA VARSHE GO-THEERTHA KHANDE ASMIN VARTTAMAANE ” and so on, for people in the USA.

  50. chandi prasad says:

    Good information. Thanks for Yajuveda upakarma mantras and procedure. I didn’t know that upakarma is called as avani avittam in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
