    1. Insert occasions,with Varusha,Ayana,Maasa,Thithi,Vaara and Nakshatra.Mention occasion after these and use Srikanth Narayana Preethyartham for auspicious occasions and Sri Govinda ,Bovines for inauspicious occasions.Regards


  1. Sir, do you have the sankalpam for the 96 tharpanam (excluding the common ones such as Amavasya, Sankramana and Mahalyam which are widely known)? I would appreciate if you could share.

    Also, I wanted to highlight 2 contrary thithi on the list of 96 that you have published:

    1. Yugadi – You have given the thithi for 3 only. I came across the below too
    Maasi / Magha / Kumbha – Pournami

    2. Manvadi – you have stated
    Thai / Pushya / Makara – Shukla/Sapthami
    but I have come across
    Maasi / Magha/Kumbha- Shukla/Sapthami

    Apart from these 2 above, rest are matching.

    1. As to Sankalpa, follow the general format and insert the specific Maasa, Thithi ,and the name of the Sraddha.
      As to additional in Yugadi and Manvantara, the ones you have mentioned are alos followed.May be they are sanctioned taking into consideration, the Veda Shaka, Geographical location.
      One can always do more.
      Strictly speaking Tharpana has to e performed Daily.
