There is no website that give classified poems of each Mangalasasana Pasuram/sthalam is given. However, each site is giving only the number of pasurams sung by respective Azhwars. Your question is now noted down and shall try to include in the same near future, by adding it to the 108 Srivaishnava Desam articles.

Sir, After getting samashrayanam done, should we follow a strict regimen? Can we eat in hotels? Are onion and garlic prohibited?


Answer: It is advisable to adhere to the stipulated norms as far as possible. The Samasrayanam, one among the five samskaras, is done after one adopted by a Guru, the Seers; it is always better to listen to the Guru and to follow the teachings. In the modern time, where paucity of time and circumstances might force one to eat outside. Still it is suggested to avoid the food items that are not recommended by our cultural system. As for the Onion & Garlick, please read the answer given to Ms. Kavitha Kannansquestion below in this page.

Sri Ramajayam! How many times should we do namaskaram ( periayavalai sevippadhu) to elders? and How many times should we do namaskaram to God? Thank you!


Answer: In Srivlaishnavas, The Thenkalai Samparadaya persons used to do Namaskaram only once. But in Vadakalai Sampradayam, they should do the namaskaram atleast four times. This is generally for any persosn to whom they offer the namaskaram. But when doing so with any Sanyasi known as Jeers, they should do the namaskaram till the Guru says stop! In some cases it might be even for couples of time. While worshipping the Lord God at any temple one has to do minimum four times of Namaskaram and atleast four round of praddikshanam.

Sir, What is the pariharam or prayaschitham if a Brahmin ate Non Veg? Is just simply changing the holy thread is sufficient? - A Brahmin


Hello, if unknowingly or under compulsion anyone consumes Nonveg food, they just can cleanse their body by consuming Panchacavyam. This panchaCavyam is to be prepared with ritualistic way by reciting specific slokhas for each item viz. Cows urine (Gomutram or Gomiyam), Cows Milk, Curd, Ghee and holy water. Please check with your Vadhyar or Guru to make this one with a specific sankalpam. Then to perform a Gayatri Homam, i.e. after qualifying with changing the holy thread and consuming panchaCavyam, with minimum 1008 counts. Incidentally, according to old vedic scripts, a Brahmin can consume meat flesh that belong to creatures with Five Nails (Ooops - Dont include humans in this!) viz. Tortoise (Aamai - koorma), Crocodile (Mudalai), Udumpu etc. Also, during some emergency time like natural calamity, draught, war etc. a Brahmin can consume the mutton of specific animals. This is specifically said for Brahmins as it is mentioned in some of the Vedic scripts. There is always an exception for each and everything - especially for the Man made Law. So, worry not. Spread word about vegetarianism; make some habitual meat eaters to turn to veg. Try to popularize the benefits of Vegetarianizm, that itself would become a solace and prayaschitham for the offence committed, knowingly or unknowingly!

Can ladies say Vishnu sahasranamam? What other mantrams ladies can say? Can ladies say slokas daily? I do chant slokas daily but I am only 28. Can I do this daily...I say some ashtothrams...Narasimha astothram and Sudarshana ashtothram. ( I think we have restrcitions for SandyaVandhanam and Gayatri Japam only). - Kavetha Kannan


The entire Vedic scriptures are very powerful in nature as far the phonetic & aquatic vibrations concerned. Some of the Mantras like Shri Nrusimha Sthothram, Sri Sudarsana Ashtakam, Gayatri, Sudarsana Gayatri are of more stronger vibrations than other mantras. In general, any Mantras, slokhas and Gayatri related to Sri Nrusimha & Sri Sudarsana are with more stronger vibration effects. Hence it is strongly recommended to avoid reciting and chanting by women in general. However, once menopause crossed, there is no hormone disturbance likely to cause any damage, hence they too can take part in reciting these slokhas. I request concerned or affected persons, to avoid reciting these slokas at least during their inconvenient periods; thus saving your own body mechanism; otherwise, the loss by way of your daily discharge may be more than normal, in addition to exposing you to some sort of thyroid problem in the later years! Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam, Sri Venkatesa Suprapatham etc can be chanted by one and all. There is no restrictions on this. Women can chant the entire Prabandam and pasurams; also, all the related stotras of Sri Lakshmi, Sri Sthuthi and related subjects.
