    THEETU =UNCLEAN (IMPURITY) Unclean is of two kinds. One unclean state is when a child is born to our relatives. This is called VRIDHI in sanskrit.

    The second is when some one dies the''unclean'' state which develop on the relatives. This is called 'KSHAYAM' in sanskrit. . Generally for both it is called aasowcham in sanskrit.

    Vridhi means increase and kshayam means decrease. When consulting a priest in case of child birth one should ask ' How many days vridhi is devolved on me and my family and not asowcham is devolved on us.

    Our beliefs on the 'unclean' and 'clean 'states are based on the functioning of various microcopic organisms not visible to our eyes. This is akin to the aroma of as flower spreading to the surroundings , even though one cannot see the 'aroma' thru eyes.

    Likewise all living beings transmit their aura to their surroundings and this is also confirmed by Ayurveda system of treatment. The 'unclean' state devolving on one person also get spread to others due to body contact, breath,eating together and sleeping together. and similar reasons.

    one should not consider these things as superstitions. One should not also seek for scintific proof for all these assertions , but follow with reverance and enjoy the benefits bestowed on us by divine Beings. One must also remember that our "maharishis' are realised beings, who have transcended the physical, will only say what is beneficial to human beings.

    Our sastras indicate that the observance of theetu for the deceased will satisfy the deceased's jeevan and will enable it to get a good status in the astral plane.

    Process of erecting a stone on the ground: According to Garuda puranam the jeevan does not go to paralokha immediately after death. Till another body is made for the jeevan (10 days) the jeevan stays in this country close to the place of death. Physical body has been cremated this jeevan enter in it.

    For making the jeevan stay and remain restful a karma called 'nithya vidhi ' is done daily for ten days. one or three stone (like baby jelly -karungal 1/2 inch in size approximately) along with bllack ellu, dharbai, and sombu (must go to river side on those olden days ) Now a days if there is individual house you may havenear the coconut tree or near compound wall gate.

    If no space is there in the flat (own house) you may have it in the sit out or now a days places are available .You can go there daily for doing this for ten days or you can do all on the tenth day. which is not preferrable. Add 2 basket of sand in the sit out or in under the coconut tree you may dig a hole to put this karungal.

Then facing south and kall mutty pottu kondu put this 3 smaal karunga tied with dharbhai ( now it is called bhaashaanan sthaapanam ) and chant manthras requsting the preathem to have aavaahanam in this bhaashaanam

    Nithyavidhi karma has to be started soon after cremation and the stone is placed /held on the ground earth the same day.consequent to this jeevan stays on that place ,eats the food every day, conveys its blessings.

    Those who are unable to do so on the day of cremation, the sastras allows one to start the ceremony on odd numbers day; 3rd;5th;7th;9th.and perform all the karmas together with those, due from the first day.

    Nithya vidhi has to be done on the banks of a pond or rivercanal well within the limits of that village and/or near the house entrance. This is called thadaaga theera kundam.

    In a similar fashion at the sitout or entrance of the kartha's house a tent is erected and the kartha burries 3 small karungal stones. This is called Grahadwarakundam.

    This process of performing tharpans and pinda dhaanam at both the places is called Nithyavidhi. According to sastras , the Jeevan's heat due to cremation , hunger and thirst are lessoned.

    Duties of sons: perform the karma with absolute commitmrnt and sincereity; fasting when required and uttering the manthras with reverence.The kartha while performing the karma should recall the good deeds of the deceased , control anger against others and sacrificing your personal work; The eldest son must perform the karmas and the younger sons do benefit fully just being there with the eldest son.

    Due to circumstances if the eldest son cannot arrive there in time , the next younger son can do the karma.

    DUTIES OF THE DAUGHTER. aughters of the deceased should take part in the nithya vidhi by remaining pious and clean. They should prepare the havis (cooked rice) and make it into a ball shape-pindam to be offered daily in thr graha kundam.

    Remaining clean means the daughter should bath and with wet clothes drapped around them they should cook the havis. Gas stove should be avoided for preparing this havis. should not use eversilver utensils. use charcoal or fire wood use brass sombu; brass karandy. brass plate to cover this.

    Havis preparation should be done near the house kundam tent. Then after the pindam offering is over the aduppu/or kumutty and brass pot,brass karandy and brass plate should be cleaned and kept near the tent. the same pot should be used for ten days.

    SMIRITIS says that the jeevan accepts with pleasure only the havis prepared by daughter.. If the deceased have no daughters then the son, daughter -in-law , paternal lineage chithappa or periappa daughter can do this havis.

    Daughters will prepare idly dosa and with chutney it will be distributed to the neighbours and relatives on the 7th day. on 13n th day and on tenth day daughters used to prepare aval pori urudai and sweets and it will be distributed to all.

    Our human human has been created out by five elements water, fire,air, earth and aakaasam.in different proportions. To experiance hapiness /grief we reqiure body. by through sense organs perceive this happinee or sorrow. When person dies the body gets cremated.but the jeevan which was in the body which is called Soul or Athman or Jeevan has to go to swarga or naraka depending upon good and bad deede performed through the body.

    To traverse the jeevan to paralokha requires a body and now a new body is created and through this body the jeevan has to sent to paraloka. Our sastras and maharishis thru their meditative power have elobarated methods on how to create a new body structure for the jeevan to use after its death.

    The symbolic body structure is created thru manthras , offering of pindas , vasodhakam and thilothakam done as part of daily samskarams.Gothra of the deceased person must be mentioned. The pinda or rice ball made by the daughter is offered as vehicle to form the virtual body,

    Rushyasringa maharishi says on the 10 th day the jeevan gets urge for food and happiness.Some scientists explain Jeevan (energy) is formed with five elements combined in the body. This compared to the bright red colour that is obtained whenbetel;nuts and calcium are chewed in the mouth In similar fashion jeevan energises the five elements to form a body and makes that body to function.

    prepare the havis for pindam and add some ghee keep it in northen side . then once agin some ghee now.In the graha kundam place in the southwest place clean the place with cow dung and by having left leg mutty pottu kondu place some dhabhai on the floor facing south and pour some ellu and water with manthras take egg size or bigger than that add ellu and water on the pindam and offer it to the pretha sareeram

    Again pour some water and ellu over the pinda for morning and one for evening.Then wash the brass vessal ( used to make havis) with water and pour some ellu and keep the pindas in the brass vessal and go to a river or pond stand facing south throw away the pindam in the river by your backside and have snaanam and come back to house.

    On all the 10 days throw the pindas in water in the same place. Keep some old dhoty/saree which were used by the dead person above the tent. Keep one tender coconut daily near the graha kundam; keep water in the graha kundam in a brass vessel; decorate the trnt with coconut flowers and coconut tree leaves pachai keethu.
    Buy one mud pot make a hole at the bottom put water on it and place it in the graha kundam in the maner by which drops of water be poured on the graha kundam. on all the ten days. pour water in the mud pot daily in the morning and evening.
    THere are songs which in olden days some seventy years ago some old women paid for this to cry in the grahakundam in the evening after lighting a lamp they used to cry by telling some songs.

    one lamp in the graha kundam must be there along with oil and thiri for ten days. lamp must burn all the 24 hours on all these ten days. hurricane lamp or brd room lamp must be there,
    to be continued.
