Normally the section beginning with 'caraNam pavitram vitatam
purANam' is recited for householders or brahmacharins. Perhaps
sometimes the Taittiriya Anandavalli is recited as
well, as Rajeev writes above.

>From what I have been taught, 'na karmaNa, na prajayA ...'
should be recited only for sannyasis and not for acharyas
such as Nammalvar or Swami Desika. The reason is that 
strictly speaking that sentence applies to a renunciate
and not others.
