More on chanting of Prabandam

From: T R Govindarajan (

I have some information about chanting during anadyayanam and after.
One version is that starting from Dec 3, 1998 chanting of entire prabandam
is suspended including Thiruppallandu and Thiruppavai pasurams (last two).
Between Dec 3 to Dec 18, 1998, tamil prabandams of Sri. Desikar (Adaikkalapthu,
Adhikara sangraham, Prabandasaram, Pillai Anthathi & others) and of 
Sri. ManavALa MAmunigaL (Upadhesa Rathhina mAlai) are recited. 

During Dhanur masam (Dec 16, 1998 to Jan 14, 1999), Thiruppalliyezhuchi and 
Thiruppavai are only chanted. (In Sattumurai, thiruppallandu is
not recited; last two verses from Adaikkalapathu or Upadesa rathina mAlai can 
also be chanted). The tamil prabandams of Sri. Desikar and Sri. ManavALa
MAmunugal can be still recited during this period.

>From Dec 19, '98 to Jan 7'99, the entire Prabanda pasurams are
chanted including Thiruppallandu (being the first verse) in the nalayiram.
On Jan 8, 1999 Iyarpa is chanted. Between Jan 9 thru Feb 4, 1999, the recitation
of prabandam is suspended. During the above period, again tamil prabandams of
Sri. Desikar and Sri. ManavALa mAmunigaL are recited.  From Feb 5, 1999  (Thai-
Hastam) the recitation of NAlAyira Prabandam is resumed.
