Dear Lotus1 ji,
It will give you amazing experiences, peace of mind and confident....
During my previous year visit to Chennai on my vacation, I planed to perform Pitru Saabam homam/karyam at Rameswaram as advised by one our devine astrologer as he could find such Pitru dosham in my brother's horoscope in 2007.
He gave us a lead to perform this in Rameswaram. He gave us the contact details of a leading and famous person in Rameswaram who performs all the dosha nivarthi Karyams in Rameswaram in a very systematic way.
We had to camp their for 3 days. Rights from the day of arrival the step by step procedures started and got completed in a very detailed manner on third day.
Right from the start we were offered to have tea/coffee, breakfast (generally Oats kanji), lunch and dinner organized in their home. We are not supposed to eat or drink anything from outside.
On the day of departure back to Chennai after completing the third day rituals we were offered food parcels for our dinner to have in the train.
We just had to handover the cash to this leader who got organized everything from A to Z. We didn't have to mind for any arrangements.
This three days rituals that includes Annadhanam to brahmins/vathiyaars, Dakshinas and every step by step procedures cost us total of RS.20000 as a fee for the whole package with a set of 9 Kalashams. The rate varies depending on the specific numbers of Kalashams. Our package was the basic one. Neither too less nor too much.
Apart from that we have to spend some money for Darshan and Puniya Theertha Snanam in RamanathaSwamy temple, archanas, dakshinas to the temple priests etc. As well the transportation/Auto cost from one theertham to another, to go to the sea to perform some rituals etc...would cost another Rs.2000 or so.
There is no dearth of hotel accommodation in Rameswaram. We were four and we could get a very good hotel accommodation (1 big room with 3 king size beds and very spacious) at the cost of Rs.750/Night. Now it might have slightly increased.
The head Vathiyar (organizer) helped us in hotel booking as well.
It was a wonderful experience and gave immense pleasure to all of us
We all would expect you to share your experiences in Rameswaram after performing the Yagnam as prescribed to you.
Wish you all the best in advance.
