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. dAsan Govindarajan.
