Sama Vedi Avani Avitta Manthras 17-9-2012


Sama Veda Upakarma Prayoga for the year 2012
                         (17-9-2012)
                   (Compiled by P.R.Ramachander)
   (There is some difference of opinion on the correct date  of Sama Upakarma.  While 17th September  is mentioned in Drik Panchangas , it is 24th july  in Vakya panchangams. I have  followed  the Madathu Panchangam)

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.

*Up to 7.04 Am  it is Prathama  and after wards Dwitheeya   and   ** up to 6.22 Am  and up to  11.22  Pm of   17-9-2012  it  is Hastha Nakshathra .SAma Vedis should perform the ritual only in Hastha Nakshatra..This would be for example applicable in many parts of USA

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.

  2. Sir

    this is a great service. However I have a suggestion. Sanskrit mantras written in Roman script will lead to murder of mantras. It will only lead to attracting sins for wrong mantra pronounciation.

    Please use the popular ITRANS notation to properly specify the variations in pronounciations. The scheme is available at:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devanagari_transliteration#ITRANS_scheme

  3. I am catering to the ordinary people who may find it difficult to read ITRANS as they do not know Sanskrit . I agree with you that it would be better. I request other knowledgeable people to post these manthras in SAnskrit as well ITRANS, Ramachander
