Dear Sir,

The following is a memory of the duties to be performed by a man, heard during one of the many upanyasams of Vaikuntha Vaasi Salakshana Ghanapaati Vedaartha Visaaradha Sri U.Ve Mukkur Lakshmi Narasimhachariyar Swamy.

Every man is born with 3 debts and the clearence of the debts is his main duty.

1. Debt to the Rishis

THis is cleared by doing Vedaadhyayanam and its preservation.

2. Debt to the Devathaas

This is cleared by doing Yagnyams in general and Soma Yaagam in particular.

3. Debt to the Pitrus

This is cleared by begetting a GOOD SON or sadputran.

All karmaas ( nithya / naimiththika ) in life in one way or the other are for the clearence of the above 3 debts only.

Ex: Sandhyaavandam involves preservation of the vedaas and fall under debt 1.Agnihotram falls under  debt 2 etc.,

Kindly correct me if my memory has failed me.

With Mukkur Nruhari Smaranams,
Daasan,
Vijayaraghavan Bashyam
