SAma Vedi Avani Avitta Manthras 2014 (29-8-2014)

Sama Veda Upakarma Prayoga for the year 2014
                         (29-8-2014)
                   (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)


In the case of Sama Veda, The upa Karma prayogam is very extensive and differs very much from the Upakarma prayoga of Rig and Yajur Vedis.They always do it in Hastha Nakshtra of  the Kanya Masa. It essentially consists of ten steps in the following order

1.Panchagavya sammelanam
2.Snana Mahasankalpam
3.Brahmayagnam
4.Punyaham
5.Rishipooja(Uthsarjan Karma)
6.Deva,rishi, Pithru Tharpanam (264+12)
7.Ghata Poojai
8.Yagnopaveethadhaaranam
9.Vedarambam
10.Kankanadharanam
           Naturally these have to be done with the instruction of a Guru but in modern times when people are scattered all over the world and also because well learned Sama Vedi Purohithas are very scarce, many people are forced to do it in their home depending on some handouts. Since most of the above steps are lengthy and involve proper chanting of Sama Veda Mantras,they do only three steps of the above 10. They are

1.Snana maha Sankalpam,
2,Brahma Yagnam
3.Yagnopaveetha dharanam
   
         English is a very inadequate language to type out Sanskrit manthras. But I have made an effort to present the needed mantras for the above steps for the year 2087 because I feel that  our youngsters are more at home in English rather than in their mother toungue or Sanskrit. Since I am not a Sama Vedin I depend for the mantras on Book published by  C.Sankara TRama Sastri(1956) Sama Veda Upakrama prayoga published by Sri Balamanorama press, Madras. I have also got my typing read through and to certain extent edited by Sri.P.A.Anantharaman.I am grateful to him,

After bath (Nowadays people only take Sankala Snanam by sprinkling water)

take Pancha Gavyam chanting

Yathavagasthi gatham papam dehe thishtathi maamake,
Praasanam pancha gavyasya dahathwagni rivendanam.

Take bath again, wear dry cloths, put on caste marks, do regular daily duties and then do Brahma Yagna.

*Chathurthi is up to 3.44  Am of  30—8-2014   afterwards  Panchami
Hastha Nakshatra is up to 1.52 PM   on  30-8-2014  , afterwards CHithra Nakshatra. Change according to your local time after comparing it to IST.

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, cutting of tree, spoiling a lake , trading of several banned commodities such as  salt , blanket, meat, root , fruit etc, 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 a Brahmin.

Rig Vedi Avani Avitta Manthras 2014 (7-9-2014)

 

 Rig  Vedi Avani Avittam for the year 2014-II-(7-9-2014)*

     (This year  Avani avittam  for Rig vedis comes is  on 10-8-2014 according   to most Panchangas.  But on   10/8/2014, it is Kadaka Masa , Sravana Nakshatra    but according to Sastras   a Rig Vedi has to  perform   Upakarma o in the month of Sravana    in the sravana Nakshatra . This    comes on 7/9/2014. So some acharyas are saying   that Rig Vedis    should perform   Upakarma   on 7/9/2014 I have given the monthras   separately     as  “Rig Vedi  Avani avittam  for the year 2014-II.  Without exception all Acharyas are saying we have to    follow our family practice  . So please consult  Your Guru as to when you should   perform Avani avittam  and then do it.)

                           Avani Avittam 20-8-2013(Tueesday )
                            (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)
(For the past 14 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

       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 next day.  I am an ignoramus   and so  if I have committed any errors, please   pardon me. My thanks  for several of my friends   who responded for my request for clarification  on Rig Vedi Upakarmam)
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.

Rig Vedi Avani Avitta Manthras (10-8-2014)

 

 Rig  Vedi Avani Avittam for the year 2014-I (10-8-2014)*

     (This year  Avani avittam  for Rig vedis comes is  on 10-8-2014 according   to most Panchangas.  But on   10/8/2014, it is Kadaka Masa , Sravana Nakshatra    but according to Sastras   a Rig Vedi has to  perform   Upakarma o in the month of Sravana    in the sravana Nakshatra . This    comes on 7/9/2014. So some acharyas are saying   that Rig Vedis    should perform   Upakarma   on 7/9/2014 I have given the monthras   separately     as  “Rig Vedi  Avani avittam  for the year 2014-II.  Without exception all Acharyas are saying we have to    follow our family practice  . So please consult  Your Guru as to when you should   perform Avani avittam  and then do it.)

                           Avani Avittam 20-8-2013(Tueesday )
                            (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)
(For the past 14 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 next day.  I am an ignoramus   and so  if I have committed any errors, please   pardon me. My thanks  for several of my friends   who responded for my request for clarification  on Rig Vedi Upakarmam)
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.
