11th Bhagyanagar Veda SabhaSankara Matham, Nallakunta, Hyderabad20th Sept. 2015, Sunday. 7:30 am to 7:30 pm
The Nori Narasimha Sastry Charitable Trust is pleased to announce that the 11th Bhagyanagar Veda Sabha would be conducted at Sankara Matham, Nallakunta, Hyderabad on 20th September 2015, Sunday, from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. All those who believe in Vedapramanya are welcome.
The parīkṣa method is followed wherein in each round, the President and Vice-President of the sabha start reciting a panasa (roughly fifty words) from a random point in each kāṇḍa; the next pair of scholars continues from where the President and Vice-President stop; thereafter the third pair continues from where the second pair stops; and so on till all the scholars present complete chanting one panasa each in pairs. There would be seven rounds to cover the seven kāṇḍas of the samhitā part of the Krishna Yajurveda and three rounds to cover the Brāhmaṇa, and one each to cover the Āraṇyaka and Upaniṣat portions. Apart from Krishnayajurveda, scholars of Rigveda, Suklayajurveda, Samaveda and Atharvaveda are also participating this year, who would recite at the beginning or end of each round from the relevant portions of the particular branch.
Ghanapāṭhis would recite the ghanapāṭha of the panasas in the samhita; Kramapāṭhis would recite the kramapāṭha. Only the mūlam is recited in the four rounds of Brāhmaṇa and Āraṇyaka.
At the beginning, there would be puja (10 minutes or less) to the Vedamātā, and at the end Āśīrvacana (30 minutes), followed by felicitation of Vedic scholars (30 minutes) and distribution of prasādam. Lunch break is between 12:30pm and 2:30pm.
