But there are variations from region to region and the sampradhayas (tradition/school) which the Purohit belongs to.

When my father died I bought a book on Dharmasasthras. It is in Tamil printed by Sanskrit College, Madras. But not for general circulation. But when I took the book to my Vadhyar ( he had suggested it when I asked him about the basis of the procedure) he went back saying that the practice is different from what is given in the book.

Get a good Sasthirigal and he will do the needful.

Readers !
Let us talk of something
to save some people under the poverty line from Yama
I mean to help them in this janma
rather than whiling away time to discuss issues relating to DEATH and after DEATH !
Just a suggestion!
