1. A good source of reference for this topic and
related  Vaideek samskarams is "Hindu Dharma" is a
book published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan which
contains English translation of two volumes of the
Tamil Book "Deivatthin Kural" by Sri
Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal.

The book is available online - 
http://www.kamakoti.org

2. On the topic of yagnopaveetam, while most grhastas
wear 2 sets, I have seen many Srivaishnava elders
wearing 3 or 4 sets of yagnopaveetam.

Does anyone know the significance of wearing more than
two sets?

Thanks,
-Shreyas
