  • Difference between Hiranya Shradham and sankalpa shradham

    Dear vasu� vadhyar swamin
    Srinivasan pranaams
    Thank you for the information on the above.
    My doubt is whether shradha thaligai when we do not offer to swamigal.
    Which one better between sankalpa shradham and hiranya shradham?
    Srinivasa dasan

    When Thaligai is not offered to swamins then that can not be called as "Sankalpa Shradham"
    Threre ar two types of shradham without thaligai :1. Aama Shradham 2. Hiranya Shradham

    1-Aama Shradham : All the things or some important things like rice, vegetables etc. to one or two swamins and a Tarpanam at the end.
    2- Hiranya Shradham : Giving double the time of the expenses equal to actual expense if it is done as Paarvana shradham (homam).

    I come to know that there are many ways to perform a sraddham. When its difficult to find swamy for nimantaranam, I was told to offer food to one person and offer sambhavana at the end. (no tarpanam here)
    Another one is to give vegetables, sambhavana to vadhyar and perform tarpanam. Sometimes we offer sraddha taligai to 3 to 5 brahmins. I think this is a compromise.

      Narayanan Pranaam.

      In Aama Sratham or Hiranya Sratham, how many Brahmins will come? In Sankalpa or Paarvan sratham (Homam), we invite one Chief Sastrigal (who wont eat the Pithru Preparations at all) and two other Brahmanals as our Pithru. How about the other two types of Srathams?
