avani avittamYajur Upakarma – Avani Avittam which is performed in the month of Sravana, on the full moon day. This year, it  falls on 06th September, 2017

It is very important that all of us perform this ritual without fail and do prayshchita for removal of all the sins and secure the divine blessings.

PDF and Audio Downloads

The complete Upakarma vidhi is available in Tamil and Sanskrit as downloadable pdf files for the help of all devotees. The Audio recording for the same has also been provided for the benefit of devotees. The Mantras have been rendered by Sri V.Sriram Ghanapatigal

NOTE: While the below PDF and Audio Files will be helpful for the devotees to perform Avani Avittam at the comfort of their home by following these, it is for those who are hard pressed for time and are  in remote places where there are not many Vadhyars and also community members to get together and perform this at a common place.  Atleast on this day, it would be better if the members and devotees of our community come together at a place like a Temple, Community Halls, River banks, Veda Patasala etc and perform Avani Avittam, and attain the blessings of the Almighty. This would also serve our community to get together and stronger and save our ancient traditions and culture and do Dharma Karyams.

In case of difficulty or break ups in audio streaming, please download the entire mp3 to your local drive and play.

    Thank you for the service. I just now came across this web-page.

    1. Can I use the resources (PDF and audio) for Avani Avittam in 2018?

    2. When you already have the 2015 version online why did you publish 2017 version? Are there any changes between these versions?

      Mr Gopal as per our vedam all the part of world the Bhumi is Bharath kantam, Bharatha varsham. This sangalpam is opt for whole earth place. If you can go to other logam like Bhuvar logam, Suvar logam, sathya logam the vedam can change. The sangapam is not writen by any individual so you can not change like Christian Bible. This sangalpam is come out from Vedam. Vedam is given from God and compile by Vyasarishi. If one can change it is laughable one

    Wonderful piece of work provided in mp3 and pdf for all Brahmins to perform Upakarma. Nicely recited and was able to perform all the Nithya Karma. Namaskarams to Sriram Ganapatigal


    அடியேன் ஜெர்மனி பவேரியாவில் ,யஜுர் உபாகர்மா எவ்விதம் செய்வதென வழிதெரியாமல் தவித்து ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீ மஹாபெரியவாளை துதிக்க அவர் தந்தருளிய வரப்ரஸாதமாய் வாய்த்தது தங்களின் இந்த இன்டர்நெட் ஆடியோ .🙏
    நல்ல பொறுமையுடன் பக்தி சிரத்தையாக நிதானமாக அப்படியே நேரில் தத்ரூபமாக நடத்தித்தருவதுபோல் எனக்கு உபாகர்மா செய்து அருளுநீர்கள் .
    அநேக கோடி நமஸ்காரங்கள் 🙏

    Namaskarangal. Thank you very much for uploading the documents and mp3 files for our benefit. I could share this treasure with my friends and relatives by sending the link of the page and I heard from many of them living in UK, Dubai, Goa in India and other places that they could really get useful service of the document and audio by carrying out today’s Yajur Upakarma seamlessly. I have been sharing for couple of years now through email and now through WhatsApp. Really helping for those people who are really in needs of such treasure when they have to complete very early in the morning to rush to work and may not be able to spend time to go to places where Upakarma is conducted collectively. Even some of the elders in our family too are helped by these documents and audio.

    If possible you can upload Mahalaya Paksha Tharpana Sankalpam for the benefit of these friends and relatives of mine.

  18. Muthukrishnan Narayanan Reply

    Namaskaram. Very useful. This year in so many places, they are not performing Yajur Upakarma with Homam on 6th September 2017. So the pdf and Audio are very very useful. Again Namaskaram and Thanks from inner heart.

  19. Harihara krishnan Reply

    This would definitely help everyone. Vadyar has addressed one issue of our isolation from community that impedes carrying out this rites properly. I felt even in India felt local vadyar has not measured upto our expectation. For such people too this audio has been a boon. Much obliged.

  20. Rajesh CP Reply

    The MP3 files and the PDF text files were very useful. The mantram was rendered in a slow pace with perfect pronunciation/diction which we were able to easily follow. Thanks a lot. Jaya jaya Sankara.

    In sankalpam for Kamokarishit Japam the name of the year, day etc are prounced as Durmukhi mama samvatsare etc instead of Hemalamba mama samvatsare.
    Naksthram is prounced as sravishta instead of satabhishak and day is prounced instead of Sowmya Vasara. Request to correct suitably.

    The Yajur upakarma is on 6-Sep-2017. While this is Shravana mase, the sankalpam in the published states Bhadrapada mase. Kindly clarify.

    Veda Bhavan Hyderabad is doing a great service to the community. Thanks very much for the timely publication of pooja vidanam etc.,
    My special appreciation and compliments to Sreeram Ganapatigal, I have been seeing him from the stage of a young vedapatashala vidyarthi, and now as a full grown vedic scholar , under the able guidance of his father and guru Sri Venkatrama Ganapatigal.
    I feel extremely happy to see this young scholar (Sreeram Ganapatigal) achieving great heights in the field of Vedas.
    God bless him with all fortunes and strength spread his knowledge for the benefit of all.
