This is the only festival for the brahmin gents. Generally it comes in tamil month Aadi. Once the new moon day of Aadi month completes and full moon day comes, yajur avani avittam will come. For Rig veda brahmins it comes in the day prior to full moon day and that day should be a chathurthi day. In some occasions, both will fall on the same day. For sama veda brahmins, avani avittam will come on the day of vinayaka chaturthi or the previous day.

மிக்க நன்றி. ஆவணி அவிட்ட (யஜுர் உபாகர்மா) மஹா ஸங்கல்பத்தில் எனது சந்தேகத்தை தீர்த்து வைக்கவும். நான் இப்போது ஆஸ்த்ரேலியாவில் பிரிஸ்பேன் நகரத்தில் எனது மகன் வீட்டிற்கு வந்திருக்கிறேன். பிரிஸ்பேன் நகரம் ஆஸ்த்ரேலியாவில் கிழக்கு கடற்கறையில் உள்ளது. வீடு பிரிஸ்பேன் ஆற்றிற்கு மேற்கு புறம் உள்ளது. இப்போது மஹாஸங்கல்பம் செய்யும்போது " ஜம்புத்வீபே, பாரத வர்ஷே, பரத கண்டே" விவரங்களுக்கு என்ன சொல்ல வேண்டும்? ரெ. ராமஸ்வாமி.

Sir

Understand there is a debate this year on when the avani avittam is - In August 17 or September 17.... Vaithigas are going with Aug 17 while the post before quotes Kanchi Madam....

The justification as quoted by the vaithiga s also appears reasonable..

Now need to have a consensus on the dates.....

Lot of controversies this year about the date of Yajur upAkarmA!

Kanchi mutt considers the lunar eclipse and postponed the date to 6th September 2017.

Kerala sAsthtigaLs say that there is no need to change the date because the eclipse occurs ONLY at night.

BTW, I got the following page, while surfing the net. Here it is:

''Since there is NO Chandra GrahaNam in America (North and South)

Yajur upAkarmA is on 7th August and Gayathri Japam on 8th August.''

The following page is very useful. Please check it out!

Hello all, Namaskaram,

I live in San Francisco & want to confirm a confusion I have. I will be in India in September and in the USA in August (2017).
1. Can someone please confirm the date of Upakarma in the US (as Aug 7th?)
2. What should I do about being in India during Avani Avittam? Should I change it again?

Sankalppam for Upaakarma in Melbourne:



"U can substitute as : Kusha dweepe, Hiranmaya varshe, Astraalaya khande (astra-aalaya)" -- Devarajan89.

No, you can't. Correct sankalppa manthram for Melbourne, Australia is:-

"jambhoo dveepe, bhaaratha varshe, bharatha khande, meroho aagneya dikh bhaage dakshina-dhruva samudra madhye asthreliya mahaa-dveeepasya aagneya dikh bhaage, jaithra-ranee deshe, melbarana-puri kshethre......"

I have received a message on July 3, from Mahaperiava group Periva kural regarding the Avani Avittam as given below along with the pdf file attached. In that the group of people gathered and discussed regarding, performing of the Upakarma for 2017 and suggested 7.8.17 is good. Our group senior members may suggest further reviewing the pdf file. Thanks
Periva Kural:
Namaskaram. We've been receiving separate mails and chats from quite a few members asking for confirmation of the Upakarma date. In this regard, we would like to share this file from Vaithikasri magazine, which was authorised for public release and circulation by Brahmasri Nannilam Rajagopala Ganapatigal. This file, which is an extract from the current month magazine is exhaustive knowledge base which concludes the issue by taking in the views of many scholars, as mentioned therein. We hope you find this useful, and we would like to thank Sri Rajagopala Ganapatigal once again for his great service to the society. Periva Saranam

Namaskaram,

I have a question.
I'm in kerala and my grandma from chennai said avani avittam is postponed to the next avittam in Lieu of the lunar eclipse.

I'm going to leave to the USA next month but I believe it's today in the US.

So how do I go about, with the practice?

Any input is highly appreciated.

Regards,
