UpavAsa vrathAnushtAnams, pAraNam, naimiththika ArAdhanams, pAdukA ArAdhanams

Dear SrI VaishNavas,

I have written detailed articles on the following subjects
after writing on IgyA (laghu-tiruvArAdhana kramam) &
Urdva-puNdra dhAraNa vidhi

1. UpavAsa vrathAnushtAnams (EkAdaSi, SravaNa-dwAdaSI, 
SrI Jayanthi, SrI rAma navami, SrI nrusimha jayanthi etc)
2. pAraNam (dwAdaSI, trayOdaSi(after SravaNa dwAdaSI) etc)
and theertha-pAraNam
3. naimiththika ArAdhanams
(on SrI Jayanthi, SrI rAma navami, SrI nrusimha jayanthi etc)
4. AchArya SrI pAdukA ArAdhanams 

All these things must be done as per SAstra's prescriptions.
Mere "not-eating food" is not upavAsa vrathAnushTAnam. 
Its anushTAnam has been clearly specified in dharma-SAstras, Aahnika 
granthams with sankalpam, mantrams etc. Similarly pAraNam. 

I request people interested in these subjects 
to write to me mshari@usa.net so that I can email the 
articles to them.

I state that these Vaidika anushTAnams (indeed all Vaidika anushTAnams)
must be learnt only from SrI VaishNava vidwAns in
Aahnika granta kAlakshEpams. Then you may ask "why are you
writing these articles?". The aim of these articles is just
to stress the importance of Vaidika anushTAnams and try to
explain the meaning of pramANa vachanams, mantrams and kriyA
with an aim to increase the interest and spread them. Similarly,
sidhdAntham has to be learnt only from SrI VaishNava vidwAns in
VEdAntha granta kAlakshEpams. The same nyAya applies here also
for articles on sidhdAntham.

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI rAmAnuja dAsan (mshari@usa.net)
