This is a holy karma performed for seeking the blessings of sri rudhra or parameshwara.vrishabam means bull or bull calf. uthsarjanam means leaving something out. A bull coloured blue,red,or black along with calf or calf alone is subjected to a pooja and left out for roaming independently. After the karma it is the custom to donate the bull or calf to a temple nearby.

Dharma sastras says that by performing the karma of vrishaba uthsarjanam the deceased will get relief from the sins on account of actions in their life like go hathi and brahma hathi. In addition they will get a better and higher status in the celestial world.

vrishaba uthsarjanam is of two kinds. 'neimithikam' and 'kamyam' . neimithikam is done on the 11th day. This is done between 8-24 am to 10-48 am in sanghra kala. this 11th day is based on cremation day as the first day. and not by treating the day of death.

Kamya vrishaba uthsarjanam is done during one's own life time for seeking the blessings of parameshwara and to get swarga loka for himself. This is done on kaarthigai full moon day; or aipasi or vaikasi full moon day. during midday between 10-48 to 1-12 pm after having finished naandhi sratham in the morning on that day.

Dharmasastras say that this kamya vrishaba uthsarjanam will get one the blessings of devas, maharishis and fore fathers. A bull calf with a red body, white on the face,tail,leg,heels,and horns is called a blue calf. It should be one or two years old. By doing aavaahanam of sri rudhran on this bull conducting a pooja on it, and allow it to wander freely is called kamya vrishba uthsarjanam. on the eleventh day after vrishaba uthsarjanam first month massikam should be done. this is also called aadhya masikam. Masikams are the karmas done every month for one full year on the ''thithi'' of the day of death. when this first masikam is performed, as the deceased has still not reached the stage of pithruthwam he is still considered as a prethasswaroopi.

As the person (brahmin) who takes part and eats food in this masyam will get more dosham to a large extent and it is difficult to find a person for this. As per vedha vaakyam all devas and pithrus remain a part 'agni' the agni bagavan himself is treated as a brahmin for eating the food, of the aadhya masikam. 32 handfull of rice should be put on homam for this purpose, The sastras indicate that one should take only 32 handfull of cooked rice per day.

Here only the dead person is called for aavaahanam without viswedevar and other pithrus this is called ekodhistam or eka homam.

Further to this aadhya masika sratha is again done on the same day with another brahmin . This is called aavrutha aadhya masikam. ( repeat first masikam). Since this is the first sratha done for the deceased with homam it should be done with devotion and sincereity.

further the food items must be prepared by the blood relatives only. rather than others. For the guest in the kartha's house food can be prepared by others and served. In the ekothita sratham prepare two agnis. homa agni in north. to the right side of this pinda prathaana medai. to the right side brahmin sthanathil prathista agni.. think that this is pitha facing west. to the west of this aasanam, paadhyam, argyam,aachamanam; thilothagam etc. should be given there.
