Re: [SriParakalaMatham] yagyopavitam length

Dear Rajeev:

Short of undoing the Brahma mudicchu (knot ) 
and reknotting it at a convenient length after
cutting off the excess thread  and reconsecrecating 
it , there are no short cuts like making another 
knot for convenience .This is not recommended .

The easier thing is to acquire another YajnOpaveedham
from the Pomona Temple priests (by mail) or from local
temple priests and replacing the current long one with
the proper sankalpam .
