Those interested can also write directly to me.The Upakarma is on 13-9-2007, With best wishes, Ramachander
    P.S. I really do not know why there is a population difference among followers of different vedas.Among Yajur Vedins, there are two groups-Shukla Yajur Vedin and Krishna Yajur Vedin. The population of followers Atharva Veda among Tamil Brahmins , according to my info is nil. It is also interesting to see that there are followers of two vedas(Dwivedi), three Vedas(Trivedi) and four Vedas(Chathurvedi) among North Indian Brahmins.Though there are known experts in more than one veda in south, they all followed only one Veda.
    Dwivedi, Trivedi, and Chathurvedi are the caste names of Brahmins who are descendants of Brahmins who were conferred the title for proficiency in more than one Veda. All Brahmins follow only one Veda.

    Most of the Tamil Brahmins follow Krishna Yajur Veda, Taittiriya Sakha. Krishna Yajurveda includes the Brahmana prose commentary within the Samhita, while the Shukla Yajurveda considers the Brahmanas as separate texts. Apastamba Sutra, the oldest Smiriti text, is the most common among Tamil Brahmins.

    ShriRudramChamakam and Tryambakam (MahamrityunjayaMantra ) occur in this Samhita and also Bhur Bhuvah Suvah prefixed to Rigvedic Gayatri Mantra.

    There are no Vedic schools teaching Atharva Veda. There are no Brahmins following this Veda by birth. They have to learn it later as this requires special initiation. Ganapati Atharvashirsha and Devyatharvashirsha are from AtharvaVeda.

    Avani Avittam mantras

    Sir;

    I agree that there are very few vidyarthis who have done adhyayanam
    in Atharvana Veda. We see them during the month of Karthigai at
    Tiruvannamalai and during the month of margazhi at Chidambaram. There
    are about ten reciting atharvana vedam. Prithvi suktam describing the
    shristi is in this Vedam only. Of the famous ten principal upanishads,
    Prasna, Mundaka and Mandukya upanishads are in this Vedam only.

    We find some Brahmins belonging to this Vedam in Orissa, Gujarat and
    Sourashtra.

    We can at least derive some satisfaction from the fact that our Indian
    Governement has the motto " SATHYAMEVA JAYATHE ", taken from
    Mundaka upanishad.
