I would like to have a general clarification from any learned members of the community.
Recently my father(late)'s cousin brother's wife has passed away. Normally people tell that for a period one year there should not be any festival celebrations at home and also one should not visit temples located on hills.
I regularly go to Tirupathi twice in a year and also started going to Sabarimala once in a year after observing vritham. Can I do these visits in the current year?
The functions that are celebrated inside the house like avani
avittam, Vishu Deepavali etc. should be celebrated in a simple manner inside the house. No decoration.
We should avoid going to temples during one year. If any temple ultsavam comes in our way, we can worship.
One of the reasons:
The celebrations or worshiping God by going to temples etc
may make the soul to feel neglected by us and hence
we may not receive good blessings from it.
Let us observer what our elders said. There are lot of meanings in it.
hi ss sir.
Varatti (cow-dung cake) can be taken for all homams but since we do not know what exactly passes for varatti (sometimes any dung-like thing found on the road is used since the cowsheds etc., of olden days are very rare to find), these days some vadhyars avoid using it in subha karyams and instead manage with chips and slices of wood (we call "Sraay" here in TVPM).
Shri Arun,... Hence, these celebrations are observed. This is as per the Garuda Purana and Smrithi. The shodasa danam, nitya masikams, etc are the daily requirements of pitrus for the period of 1 year.
