nitya and naimittika karmas

From: Kasturi Varadarajan (

Hello everybody. I have been on this list for more than a month now. I
have thoroughly enjoyed the experience so far. 

I have a question regarding the vedic nitya and naimittika karmas for
a srivaishnava brahmin.

1. Are there any that involve animal sacrifices? Example?

2. How do srivaishnava brahmins perform these karmas?

I wish to clarify that I am *not* asking for arguements for or against
animal sacrifices. I simply want to know what the practice is. I
did search the archives and find related discussions but did not
hit upon the facts that I am looking for.
