Thanks for the very useful information. Just my observation :
I have presented below the Rg vedic mantras that are commonly utilized
in what is called nitya pUjA, the daily pUjA..
> what we see today in Ritvik circle, we use both yajurveda & Rigveda
maNtra-s for shOdasha upachAra pooja irrespective of the shAkha. In
yajurveda prayOga, we chant devi sUkta, pavamAna, gaNesha sUkta etc. and
Rigveda prayOga or devatArchana, we use namaka, chamaka, durgA sUkta (
yajurvedeeya) etc. During pnachAmrutAbhishekaM also as you mentioned
along with sadyOjAtAdi pancha maNtra, we recite Arambha maNtra of four
veda-s (agnimeeLe, ishetvorjetva, agna AyAhi, shannOdevi) and sheekshAm
vyAkhyAsAmaH from taitireeya. Here also no strict observation of
yebhyo mAtA (10.63.3)
evA pitre (4.50.6). Also occurs in the atharva veda (20.88.6) and
taittirIya saMhitA (184.108.40.206).
> These maNtra-s we chant during puNyAha (in yajurveda prayOga) while
offering the pAda pUja to mAtru & pitru.
KalashArchanam - gaN^gAdyAvAhana-
imaM me gaN^ge (10.75.5). Also occurs in Taittirya AraNyaka (10.1.13)
> Rigvedeeya imaM me gaNge yamune saraswati maNtra have different svara-s
when compared to taittireeya yajurAraNyaka same maNtra-s. And in
yajurveda kalashArchanaM we use maNtra apOvAidagaM sarvaM also alongwith
gangecha yamune chaive godAvari sarasvati shlOka.
> Prabhuji, shankhArchana also we do in yajurveda after kalashArchana
using again some rigvedeeya maNtra-s along with shaNkha gAyatri maNtra.
> and with regard to panchAyatana AvAhana though maNtra-s are somewhat
same, svara-s are different, for Aditya Avahana we also use adityOvA esha
etanmandalaM (aditya upAsana maNtra-s) from taitereeya AraNyaka ( or in
> in addition to panchAmruta abhishekaM we also do phala snAna (kadaLi) by
chanting apaitu mrutyu amtrutaM maNtra-s. And also maNgaLa dravyA-s like
gandhOdaka, pushpOdaka, suvarNOdaka, rudrAkshOdaka, tulasyOdaka,
bhasmOdaka, bilvOdaka, dUrvOdaka etc.
> and for vastra, upaveeta, gandha, akshata samarpaNaM also we use
yajurveda purusha sUkta maNtra-s. for example, for vastra, saptAsyAsaM
paridhayaH, for upaveeta : taM yajnaM baruhishi praukshan etc.
akShata samarpaNam -
upAsmai gAyatA (9.11.1).
> along with the pavamAna sUkta maNtra we use archata prArchata & ayenete
parAyaNe maNtra-s also.
Ayane te parAyaNe (10.142.8).
> yOpAm pushpaM veda, pushpavAN pashumAn bhavati etc.
> and we do ashtAvadhAna seva and rAshtrAshirvAda after devatArchana when
it is done at public place.
> BTW, I have seen in somany pavamANa hOma-s, ritviks skipping rishi,
devata, chandas in pavamAna sUkta, I think due to time constraints :-))
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
