1. each son must do gaya sratham independately after varushaapteekam.

2. you are not eligible to do masikam. only eldest son must do maasikam and oona maasikam and sodhakumpam every month. if it is not posible he may do the left out masikams before varushaapteekam day. oona masikam must be done only on the prescribed date.

krishna paksham chathurthasi days: 2-11-13; 1-12-13; 31-12-13; 29-01-14; 28-02-14; 29-03-14; for this year. onky after purchasing new year panchankam we can tell dates for the next tamil year. sodakumpam must be done on the previous day of masdikam every month.

asper sastras sodhakumpam must be done on all the 365 days from 13th october which is impossible now a days. onna maasikam falls on 31-10-13 and 14-11-13 this year.

as per sastras you should not go to temples for onr year for any reason.
