    • 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.
