Prepare for Upakarma

Wherever you be in the world, use the early morning time (Brahma Muhurtham) to wakeup on all days. Especially on this Upakarma day wake up early in the morning and take a full bath.
As per shastra the brahmacharis and gruhastas should have sarvaanga kshavaram on this day before taking bath.
Do sandhya vandhanam. If you have the pavithram which is made up of two dharbhams, keep them ready to use. A pair of 'Yajgnopaveetam' also called Poonal is required for each gruhasta.
And a Single poonal is required for each brahmachari.
Usually the yajgnopaveetam will be worn only at the time of kandarushi tarpanam and not before kamokarsheet japam. Do as per your family custom.
A palasa (purasai or arasu) dhandam, a piece of deer skin and minji kayaru made up of dharbam is required for brahmacharis.
A place to be selected for Kaandarushi Tarpanam, where we can pour lot of water. Terrace or Garden or Well bank will be suitable for this.
In the middle of the hall, 'Padi Kolam' to be drawn in the floor for each and a 'Manai Palagai' to be palced on it. The kolam also to be drawan on the palagai.
Keep the manjal neer haarathi ready which is to be done at the end of the function.

If everything ready
  • Do snanam
  • Wear Panchakatcham Veshti
  • Wear Thiruman or Thilakam
  • Do Sandhya Vandhanam

Don't forget to update your this Upakarma App before using for this year. We are often updating this application to make it easy and with latest feature and technology. So, it is a must to update it.

Upakarma Instructions

There are four main steps to complete upakarma.

  1. Nithya karma
  2. Kamokarsheeth Japam
  3. Kandarushi Tharpanam
  4. Vedharambam

1. Nithya Karma :-

Nithya karma is nothing but doing the daily routines like, taking bath, sandhya vandhanam. for grahasthas. Dhanda dharanam, Mounji, Mekala, Ajina dharanam and samidhadhanam are additional for brahmachary.

2. Kamokaarsheeth Japam :-

Kaamokaarsheeth or Gayathri Japam should be done after the Surya udhayam as per sastram. This step is not required for freshers who is going to do the upakarma first time. All others should do it as a 'prayachiththam' for not doing the 'Uthsarchana Karma' in the month of 'thai'. Upakarma is the starting step of adhyayanam and the Uthsarchanam is the ending step. We are skipping the ending step every year and hence we are doing the prayachiththam. We pray God to remove the 'Kama', 'Krotha' feeling from us, which lead us to do the 'adharma karmas'. If you have plenty of time do more count of this japam do as much as you can. Do not use dharbha pieces to count. Counting should be done only by using the lines in your fingers. If you have 3 sets of poonal use one before Kamokarshith one at Kandarushi tharpanam and one at Gayathri Japam. If you have only two sets of poonals, skip the first one. After completion of the Kamokarsheeth Japam, if possible, go to a river or pond to take a real snanam . Because using taps or even well water to take bath is not permitted as per sastram. Because the whole body should be drown in the water.

3. Brahama Yajgnam, Devarushi Tharpanam :-

This step should be further divided into three : a) Brahma Yajgnam b)Devarushi Tharpanam b) Pithru tharpanam. Usually the second step is skipped by persons who are having father alive. But really there is no meaning of skipping this. This tharpanam is not meant for our direct pithrus of immediate three generations. Because the vasu, rudhra, aadhithya words are not used here, but usually these terms are used every where to represent the direct pithrus. The manthram used in this tharpanam is saying "pithru ganaas", "pithru ganapathnees" etc. Wear a new poonal before doing kaandarushi tharpanam. It will be in the sankalpam.

4. Vedharambam :-

This is the final step. Every year we are starting to chant the vedham on this day and forgetting it that day itself. So, again and again every year we are chanting only the four vaakyams. We should use this day to get asirvadham of our elders. Everyday youngers doing namaskarams to elders twice (or atleast once a day) is a good virtue practice. You should do namaskaram to your elders atleast on this auspicious day.

Do not hesitate to get my help on any matter related to vaideekam and rituals.

Kaandarushi tharpanam over! Next Vedha Aarambham. If you are doing it in your house, keep the pavithram in your right ear and do achamanam. If you are doing it in the bank of a river or a lake remove and untie the pavithram and do achamanam twice.

Vedha - Aarambham

Sit in a clean place towards east. Chant the below manthrams. Simple form of Vedhaarambam only given here, you could find the full manthram in last two video in instructions section. "Hari: Om - Agnimeele purohitham - yagnasya - dhevamruvijammm- hothaaaram - rathnadhathamam - hari: Om" "Hari: Om - Yishethvaaa - oorjethvaaa- vayavastha - upayavastha - dhevovaha - prarpayathu - sreshtathamaya - karmane - hari: Om" "Hari: Om - Agnaaayhi - veedhayeaaa- grunana:(ha) - havyadhathayeaa - nihotha - sathsi bharhishi - hari: Om" "Hari: Om - Sannodhevi: - abhishtayeaa - aapobhavanthu - peethayeaaa - saymyo:(ho) - abhisravanthuna: (ha) - hari: Om"

If anybody still wearing the pavithram, remove and untie it and throw it. All should do achamanam twice.
Vadakalai only should say :- "Bhagavaneva swasesha bhoothamidham upakarmakyam karma swasmai swapreethaye bhagavan swayameva kaarithavaan" All should tell : - "Kaayena vaacha - manase - indhriyarvaa - bhudhya - athmanaava - prahrudhe:(he) - swabhavaadh - karomi - yathyadh - sakalam - parasmai - sriman naarayanayethi - samarpayami" "Sarvam Sri Krishnarpanam asthu. Achydha preeyatham".

Ending procedures :-

Wherever you be in the world, there will be some elders and well wishers with you or in the next appartment or in next house. Call them and do sashtanga namsakaram to get their asirvadham. If you did the upakarma in a common place and returnin to house, ask the ladies to take harathi. First you go to the perumal (pooja) room and do namaskaram to permal and then do namaskaram to periyavals (elders). If possible call relatives and friends to your house and take food with them. Enjoy this day.

Do not forget to do Gayathri Japam mostly next day to Upakarma.
