vikacchOnuttarIyascha nagnascha avastrascha; shrauta smArtE naiva kuryAt
Without uttarIyaM, the dvija is considered to be digaMbara (nagnascha & avastrascha).
Such a person is not eligible for shrauta & smArta karmAs.
However, if accidentally, one forgets to have uttarIyaM, the *truteeya yajnOpaveeta* saves
the modesty. Hence, during yajnOpaveeta dhAraNa, the sankalpa made is
*uttareeyArthaM truteeya yajnOpaveeta dhAraNaM kariSyE*.
The prathama yajnOpavita is for brahmachAri as a part of upanayana samskAra
to get the adhikAra for agni kArya. The dviteeya yajnOpavita is during *samAvartana*
ie, snAtaka mahOtsava. The truteeya yajnOpavita is for uttareeya.
So, one should don the uttareeya always without which one is unfit for shrauta & smArta karmAs.
