THARPANA MANTHRAM

We do tharpanam regularly on :
* All Amavasya days
* Four samkramanams (month beginnings)-
a. mesha samkramanam,
b. karkidaga samkramanam,
c. thula samkramanam and
d. makara samkramanam and
* Lunar and Solar eclipses.

Some rules regarding tharpanam are given below:

1.On the day of Tharpanam, till tharpanam is completed we are not supposed to drink/eat anything.
2.On the day of tharpanam, the daily rituals like Sandhya vandhana have to be first performed. Then before tharpanam, Madhyanikam have to be performed. If you are working and need to go to office very early, do Madhyanikam immediately after Prathasandhya and then perform Tharpanam.
3.Wet cloth should not be worn during tharpanam. Do not wear single veshti. Tie uthareeyam or thorthu around waist above veshti.
4.Except the tharpanam during eclipse all other tharpanams are to be done after
12 noon. In cities many people go to office very early and Kanchi Sankaracharya once answered to a query that a person can do tharpanam after 6.00 AM .
5.Tharpanam should be done with hand full of water and not drops or spoon full of water.
The water should be poured out using the space between the thumb and the four fingers of right hand by tilting the hand to right side. (For pithru tharpanam, the water should fall on the koorcham through right hand thump).
6.Every time a pinch of black til has to be taken. Care should be taken not to take it using the thumb and the index finger.
7.Pithru tharpanam should always be done with poonal hanging from the right shoulder to the left side(
Edam) of the body.
8. While doing tharpanam put two durbhas on the place we are going to sit - underneath folded legs. (Durbheshwaseenaha) .
9.Silver, copper or brass vessels have to be used for tharpanam. Under no circumstance should steel or other metal vessels are to be used.
11.Tharpanam should be done facing east. It is believed that it either
should be done in our homes, in public places or holy places like sea-shore or river side.
12.If Amavasya and the first of the month in which tharpanam has to be performed comes on the same day, then tharpanam for the samkramanam (first of the month) should be done.
