Simplified Acamana:

What follows is a presentation of a yajna (elaborate sacrifice) intended for major samskara like the marriage and the initiation. For the other samskara, which in general are performed in a more familiar atmosphere, the preparation of the sacrificial fire (homa) is simplified.

Before starting the preparation of the ceremony (decoration, etc.) all the persons involved should do the simplified acamana.

saxar[ Aacmn

Simplified Acamana:

With a panca-patra filled with water, clean both hands by sprinkling them with water; holding the acamana spoon in your left hand, pour a few drops into the right palm. While looking at the water chant the appropriate mantra and then silently sip the water from the base of the right thumb (Brahma-tirtha). Adopt a proper sitting place (asana). If there is no asana kneel with your right knee touching the floor and your left foot flat on the floor.

The sadharana acamana is the five first step of the vesesa acamana (full acamana):

` kezvay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` naray[ay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` maxvay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` gaeiv<day nm> ,

Sprinkle water on your right hand.

` iv:[ve nm> ,

Sprinkle water on your left hand.

ku{f kI tEyarI krna

(Preparing the Kunda) :

First, the place where the fire will be installed has to be cleaned and purified. A clean piece of cloth can be spread on the floor. If a ready made yajna-kunda is not available, the plywood slab and the bricks will be used for constructing the kunda. The inside dimensions of the kunda should be one asta plus one musti of the priest. The kunda can be framed by one or three stepped walls of bricks according to the importance of the yajna. For a marriage or an initiation, the walls can be covered with mud or a mixture of cowdung and clay nicely smoothened and decorated with colourful ornaments, etc.

Install the asana for the priest. Preferably, the priest should face the deities, or the east or else he should select a convenient direction, considering the direction he faces to be east, with the northen direction to his left side. The wood fuel and the ghee pot should be placed on his right side. The five colors are place in front of his asana (that is between his seat and the yajna-kunda). The small plates with the vegetables, fruits, etc. are placed around the kunda. Other kind of decoration can be employed. The arati plate will be placed on his left.

Aasn Swapna >

(Establishing a seat):

To perform the ritual one must sit on an asana, for in that atitude one can concentrate. The recommended sitting postures are padma-asana or svastika-asana, with the feet and legs covered by cloth. To sit on the bare floor is a seva-aparadha, an offense. The sastras notes that asanas made of wood, stone, earth, bamboo and grasses other than kusa may cause sickness, poverty and sorrow. Kusa grass, silk, or wool are the most suitable for vaisnava rituals.

Place the asana on the floor.

Place your right hand on the asana and recite:

` Aasn m<Sy mep&:Q\i;> sutl< DNd> kUmaeRdevta Aasnaepvezne ivinyaeg> ,

` AaxarzKtye nm> , ` AnNtay nm> , ` kUmaRy nm> ,

Demonstrate the dhenu-mudra, matsya-mudra and cakra-mudra.

While kneeling with joined palms (pranama-mudra):

p&WvI Tvaya x&ta laeka devI Tv< iv:[unax&ta ,

Tv< c xary ma< inTy< piv< c Aasn< ku .

"O Mother Earth, O godess, you support all the worlds people, and Lord Visnu sustains you; please be merciful today and support me as I sit to worship the Lord."

Now the priest can sit.

Aacmn >

(Acamana):

Take the panca-patra from the arati plate, and fill it with fresh water. Invoke the sacred rivers by showing the ankusa mudra in the panca-patra, chanting:

g<ge c jmune cEv gaedavrI srSvtI , nmRde is<xu kaverI jle=iSmn! siNnix< ku .

"May waters from the holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Sarasvati, Narmada, Sindhu and Kaveri kindly be present."

Now recite over the panca-patra the mula-mantra of your worshipable deity (ex:klim krishnaya namah) eight tiems silently, while holding the bijaksara-mudra (for those who have knowledge of the mudra).

Then perform the complete acamana (Visesa Acamana):

` kezvay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` naray[ay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` maxvay nm> ,

Sip water from the brhma-tirtha of your right hand.

` gaeiv<day nm> ,

Sprikle water on your right hand.

` iv:[ve nm> ,

Sprikle water on your left hand.

` mxusUdnay nm> ,

Touch your right cheek with the fingers of your right hand.

` iivmay nm> ,

Touch your left cheek with the fingers of your right hand.

` vamnay nm> ,

Wipe above your upper lip with the base of your right thumb.

` Ixray nm> ,

Wipe below your lower lip with the base of your right thumb.

` i;kezay nm> ,

Sprinkle water on both hands.

` pd!mna-ay nm> ,

Sprinkle water on your feet.

` damaedray nm> ,

Sprinkle water on the top of your head.

` vasudevay nm> ,

Touch your uper and lower lips with the tips of your fingers of your right hand.

` s<k;R[ay nm> ,

Touch your right nostrils with your right thumb and forefinger.

` *uMnay nm> ,

Touch your left nostril with your right thumb and forefinger.

` Ainay nm> ,

Touch your right eye with your right thumb and ring finger.

` pu;aeTtmay nm> ,

Touch your left eye with your right thumb and ring finger.

` Axae]jay nm> ,

Touch your right ear with your right thumb and forefinger.

` n&is<hay nm> ,

Touch your left ear with your right thumb and forefinger.

` ACyutay nm> ,

Touch your navel with your right thumb and little finger.

` jnadRnay nm> ,

Touch your heart with the palm of your right hand.

` %peNay nm> ,

Touch your head with all the finger tips of your right hand.

` hrye nm> ,

Touch your right upper arm with the finger tips of your left hand.

` k&:[ay nm> ,

Touch your left upper arm with the finger tips of your right hand.

Now chant the following mantra while showing the pranama-mudra (palms together in front of your heart):

` td! iv:[ae> prm< pd< sda pZyiNt sUryae> idivva c]urattm! ,

td! ivasaeivpNyvae j"&va<s> siM-Nxte iv:[aer yt! prm< pdm! .

"Just as those with ordinary vision see the suns rays in the sky, so the wise and the learned devotees always see the Supreme abode of Lord Visnu. Because those highly praiseworthy and spiritually awake brahmanas can see that abode, they can also reveal it to others"(Rg Veda, Visnu-samhita I.22.20.)

The priest should have a last check over the paraphrenlia to be used during the ceremony, if everything needed is there and placed properly.

If the priest is feeling some tension after all that much preparation, he can do some pranayama after acamana.

During a yajna, the performer should emphasize his vital air through his right nostril surya).

carae< ved >

The Four Vedas:

If desired, the four Vedas (pots with coconuts) can now be installed in the four corners.

(Using some sandalwood paste or water, with the thumb against the decond digit of the forfinger, draw a lotus shaped mandal with eight petals or a chakra mandala on the place where the vedas should be standing. Then cover it with some rice and place the pot there while reciting: om adhara-sktaye namah).

Repeat this operation for the four pots. East: Rg Veda; South: Sama Veda; West: Yajur Veda; North: Atharva Veda.

Pour some water in the pots.

preoa Swapna >

Drawing the lines:

A pattern of five lines, each of a diferent color, will be drawn on the sand surface inside the kunda. The pattern consist of one horizontal line of red color which runs parallel and close to the western wall of the kunda, with four vertical lines extending eastward from this kunda.

The priest, kneeling on his asana with his right knee on the ground, should draw a line of yellow powder on the sand.

Put inside some rice and tumeric and some grass like durva.

Place some mango leaves on the mouth of the pot (or some other leaves.)

Place a coconut with its "Sikha" on the mouth; this will hold the leaves.

On the eastern side, install the Rg Veda with the following mantra and the pranama-mudra:

` \gveday nm> , Aayaim Swapyaim .

Avahani-mudra (to invite the Veda), the sannirodhani-mudra (to ask hi to stay during the ceremony).

Perform arati with dhupa, dipa, puspa, gandha, Naivedyam.

On the south install the Sama Veda in the same manner with:

` samveday nm> Aayaim Swapyaim .

On the West Side, install Yajur Veda with:

` yjuvReday nm> Aayaim Swapyaim .

On the Northern side install Atharva Veda with:

` AwvRveday nm> Aayaim Swapyaim .

The four Vedas can be installed all together with the pranama-mudra.

` cturvede_yaenm> Aayaim Swapyaim .

` cturvede_yae nm>.

Surface, starting from the South -West corner extending eastward for a distance of two pradesas.

While meditating on the personality of earth, he should chant:

reoe Tv< p&WvI pa pItv[aRis ,

From the South - West corner, extending for a distance of three pradesas, he should draw a line of red colour.

While meditating on the sacred cow, he should chant:

` reoe Tv< gae pa laeihta v[aRis ,

A blue or black line should be drawn parallel to the yellow one at a distance of one pradesa. Starting from the red line and extending eastward, the length of this line is one pradesa.

While meditating on the Yamuna, he should chant:

` reoe Tv< kailNdI pa k&:[ v[aRis ,

Parallel to this line, at a distance of one pradesa, he should draw a golden line, beginning from the red one and extending eastward for one pradesa.

While meditating on LaksmiDevi, he should chant:

` reoe Tv< Ipa Sv[R v[aRis ,

Finally, a fifth line should be drawn with white color.

Again, parallel to the previous lines, it should extend eastward for one pradesa, starting from the end of the red line.

While meditating on goddess Sarasvati, he should chant:

` reoe Tv< srSvtI pa zuKl v[aRis ,

preoa Swapna > Simplified Alternative to the panca-rekha-sthapana.

Another alternative would be to draw a six pointed star or a lotus with eight petals, with the omkara or the bija-mantra klim in the center. Ordinary rice powder can be used for drawing the symbols. This is a tantric method, but in the eleventh canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, by Krishna to Uddhava:

vEidkaStaNIkae im=ra#it me Iivxae mo> ,

ya[a< #iPstenEv ivixna ma< smacret! .

One should carefully worship Me by selecting one of the three methods by which I receive sacrifice: Vedic, tantric,or mixed." (S.B.11.27.7.)

%tkr invasn

Expelling Impurities and Purifying the Lines>

One should take a pinch of earth from each line with the thumb and ring finger of the right hand and throw out that earth towards the north-east direction (out side the kunda), saying:

` inrSt> pravsu>

Then, taking water from the panca-patra, sprinkle it on the lines.

AiGn s<Skar

Purifying the Fire>

Light the ghee lamp or the candle. Take a small wooden stick, ignite it with the candle or ghee lamp and cast it in the south-west direction to expell the inauspicious elements of the fire, saying:

` Vyadm! AiGn< ih[aeim dUrm! , ym raJy< gCDtu ivvah>.

SviSt vacn

Invocation of Auspiciousness>

Three brahmanas should throw some aksata (rice mixed with tumeric) three times after each mantra:

` ASy kmR[a pu{yah< -vNtu uvNtu ,

` pu{yah< ` pu{yah< ` pu{yahm! ,

` ASy kmR[a SviSt -vNtu uvNtu AayuSman! SviSt ,

` SviSt ` SviSt ` SviSt.

` ASy kmR[a \i< -vNtu uvNtu ,

` \!yta< ` \!yta< ` \!ytam! ,

The priest should chant auspicious mantras such as Visnu-smaranam, mangala-santi, Brahma-samhita, sukta, santipancakam, etc.

-agvt paQ >

Lecture, from Srimad Bhagavatam:

One should select a relevant passage for the recitation from the Srima-Bhagavatam or Bhagavat-gita, read it to all those assembled and give a short lecture including an explanation of the activity. This should be done by the priest, senior devotee or by the spiritual master.

s<kLp >

The Vow:

AiGn Swapna >

Installation of the Fire:

Before the actual ignition of the sacrificial fire, as described below, the priest should recite and meditate on the following verse from the Srimad- Bhagavatam:

When it is performed for others.

"May Sanat-kumara protect me from lusty desires. As a I begin some auspicious activity, may Sri Hayagriva protect me form being an offender by neglecting to offer respectful obeisances to the Supreme Lord. My Devarsi Narad protec me from committing offenses in worshipping the deity, and may Sri Kurma, the tortoise avatara, protect me from falling to the unlimitted hellish planets." (S.B.6.8.17)

Place a piece of camphor on the top of the black line and arrange a few short pieces of wood standing around the stick of wood intended for that purpose, chanting:

` japit iv:[u \i;> b&hitDNd> ,

Iiv:[udevta AiGn Swapne ivinyaeg> ,

Daksina should be given to the priest.

Generally, a remumeration is agreed on in advance between the priest and the beneficiary (though it should be done as a matter of duty). Being employed in this way, the karma that the priest takes upon himself by performing the ceremony is diminished. The daksina is an extra reward, a donation given to the prest, like money, clothes, food, etc.-a gift to thank him.

Distribution of Visnu-prasada to Everyone.

"Any sacrifice performed without regard for the directions of scripture, without distribution of spiritual food, without chanting the Vedic hymns and renumerations to the priests, and without faith is considered to be in the mode of ignoranane." (B.G., 17.13)
