    Detailed Sandhya Vandanam with Full Instructions




    Thanks for the Author of this blog:



    This post is actually on Sandhya Vandan which brahmins usually do after they have got done their upanayanam. When my upanayanam was done I also had to do sandhyavandam daily but there was hardly any text on the internet which had the complete sandhyavandam in it with instructions. In this post I have tried to capture the most detailed Sandhyavandam which is the Yajurveda Sandhyavandam. The text which I had was in telugu and I sat together with two others to translate that entirely into english and ensured that we get the right pronounciation by listening to the audio as well.
    In this endeavour I would like to thank the following people who made the Knowledge Transformation and Document Management (KTDM) possible.
    First in the list is Mr. Tirumala Rao. He was my teacher for Sandhyavandam and taught extremely well all the aspects of Sandhyavandan and very clearly also.
    The next in the list is Mr. K Gautham Kumar. He is my cousin and is currently pursuing his graduation in Electronics and Communications Engineering. He did close to 12 pages of translation of the text in telugu and did entire typing work in Microsoft Word.
    Finally it was Miss. Rashmika, another cousin of mine, currently employed with WIPRO Technologies in their WASE Program. She started the intial translation work but was later carried over by Gautam.
    Here is the entire text:
