People Eligible to make Yagnobhaveetham (Yagnobhaveetham = Poonul)

A Married Woman (Sumangali) OR
A Kannika (UnMarried Girl) OR
A Widow
These three are eligible for making Yagnobhaveetham
Yagnobhaveetham should be done using Paruthi (Cotton)







Method to make Yagnobhaveetham (Poonol/Sacred Thread)




Sitting in a pure place, the lady should keep four fingers of her right palm and wrap the cotton into three threads around her palm.
Wrapping these three threads around the palm for 96 times we get One Poonol (One Yagnobhaveetham)
This Poonol (Sacred Thread, Yagnobhaveetham) is also called as "Shanvadhi"
This Poonol should be cleansed with water
Once cleansed, it should be folded into three layers and twisted and turned
After this, the Poonol obtained will have nine Dhantus due to the folding
This Poonol should be decorated to have Knot (Often this Knot is called as Bhrama Knot)
This Yagnobhaveetham should not be exceeding the belly of the boy
If the length of Yagnobhaveetham is too short it impacts the life of the Boy and too long makes all of the Karma performed by the boy as meaningless.
