I found out the answer to the upAkarma question asked earlier. The dosha is only for prathama (first-time) upAkarmins of Rg and Yajur Veda. Others can perform the upAkarma on their regular date, viz., August 25 for Rg, August 26 for Yajur, and September 12 for Sama. This topic was discussed by Sri Sadagopan in a previous year: http://www.ramanuja.org/sv/bhakti/archives/aug98/0055.html Mani P.S. Why is it no panchAngam lists atharvaNa upAkarma?
