About Sashtiaapdapoorthi

From: sripu sri (

dear fellow bhakthas,

i would like request the learned members of the list
to clarify a few things for me.

i have my fathers sashtiaapdapoorthi fast
approaching. I would like to know about it before
getting involved in it.

what is the main reason behind making this a grand
occassion with all vaideeha karyams being done?
what are the vaideeka kramams that preceed and follow
the main ritual?
also, what is the inner meaning of the rituals being
why is the thirumangalya dhaaranam repeated?

i would like to learn more about such things
just to be sure that they are not simply done for the
sake of doing them.

please pardon any offensive lines.

Sincerely yours,
Sripriya Srinivasan
