Yagnopaveeda Dharana Mantra Poonal

Brahmapureeswara Temple Thirukkarukavur.image.

Upanayana is an important Samskara, duty of a Hindu.

The three Varnas, Brahmana, Kshatriya and Vaisya must have this ceremony performed for them.

Read my posts on Samskaras.

The wearing of the sacred thread opens the inner eye.

One becomes a Dwija, born for the second time.

The Upaveeda must remain clean.

It has to be changed periodically.

It is also changed for special occasions like Marriages,Homas,Poojas,Apara Kriyas.

Following is the mantra for changing the Upaveeda.

The removed Upaveeda msu no be deposited in a Garbage bag or thrown out.

It may be deposited ,if you have a Garden,in a small pit.

Otherwise drop it in a pit, close it in any clan place.

Wear Poonal one by one by reciting(poonal should be held by both hands, the tie in the poonal being held above by the right hand facing upwards)

Yagnopaveetham paramam pavithram  praja pathe,

Yat sahajam purasthad aayushyam

    1. Thank you. Can these instructions be followed for Samaveda? Also could you please provide some more details on the placement of Yagnnopaveedha before the puja? I had some trouble finding the right setup before starting the process. Do we need to use the Panchapathram? Thank you


      • The rules for changing the Upaveedha are the same.
        Before the Pooja and during the Pooja the Upaveedha must be across the left shoulder.
        For inauspicious occasions, across the right shoulder, Pracheena Veedhi)
        ( Technically the Upaveedha must be Nivedha, as a Garland around the neck when we are not performing Pooja, thus practice has gone out)


    2. for putting poonool should we see horai or any time other than yemakandam, raghukalam is acceptable


    3. Thank you very much. Did not realize you were living so close by. Am in GarudacharPalya 🙂
      Please pardon my naive question. If my old poonal got broken and I no longer have it on my person, then is the Upaveeda mantra and prakriya applicable?
