Dear Sir, VIRAJA HOMAM: Some Preceptor's/Guru's Keep the Viraja Homa as a secret final fire oblation although sishya sweekra ceremony can be made publically. As I mentioned in my previous mail that durung the Sanyasa deeksha ceremony, previous materilistic life is physically cut, even death rites were performed to start a new life of Monastic sanyasa deeksha with absolute self surrender. It will be toughest of toughest life and can be easy for a committed person with Guru's Guidance in the Initial years (Must & required).
Yesterday subbramanyan sir sent a beautiful LINK , In which purvasaram parent of the Uttaradhikari of sringeripeetham i.e Jagadguru sir vidhusrkhara bharathi mahaswamiji and the nice explantion of his parents in his previous life is wonderfull, worth listening ans great to know that how mahaswami sannidhaanam was nurtured the uttaradhikar since last 20 yrs at sringeri mahasamsthanam.
His purvasrama father Brahmma sri sri Kuppa subrahamanya avadhani garu mentioning that he performed the janev samskara at the 5th yrs although sastra's prescribed to perform the janev samskara in the astamagarbha i.e one should do in the 7th year by counting one yrs in the mothers woomb and he also expamined with reference that janev samskara's presciribed in 5th, 6th yr also if some one is inclined.
His mother mentions in telugu that opting the sanyasa deeksha and turning to ascetic life is mahaswami's wish and he seeks her permission to do so just like adishankara and which benedicted by her.
Although sanyasa asrama deeksha rules were so tough in the early years ans even asi ashankara himself performing her mothers final rites by invoking, touching the fire (which is not prescribed for sanyasi).
Adishankara teaches all of us that Mother is mother, above all for any one. All rules & regulations can be relaxed for the mother. As we exsist today by the oportunity of the mother and she is heavier than the earth as told by yudhistara during yakhsa-prasna samvada.
I saw in that video his parents mentioning their 2nd son as Jagadguru Vidhushekara bharathi mahaswami and they acknowledged that it is the grace of Mahasannidhanam jagadguru H.H.Sri Bharathi Teertha Mahaswami , who not only nurtured the uttaradhikari for 20 yrs in sastra adhayana and finally accepting him as his dearest disciple and appointing him as Uttaradhikari.
It is nothing but Guru's Grace.
Here is a conversation with the Purvashrama parents of the Sringeri
Jagadguru Sannidhanam. A number of Shastra points are discussed and
clarified. A very useful discourse indeed.

Dasanami Sampradaya: Dasanami sannyasin, a Shavite, Ascetic, who belongs to one of the 10 orders (dashnami, “ten names”) established by the Adi Shankara in the 8th century CE and still flourishing even today.
The 10 orders are Aranya, Ashrama, Bharati, Giri, Parvata, Puri, Sarasvati, Sagara, Tirtha, and Vana.
Each order is attached to one of four monasteries (mathas), also established by Shankara, in the north, south, east, and west parts of India. They are Jyoti (Joshi) Matha (at Badrinath, near Haridwar), Shringeri Matha (Sringeri, Karnataka), Govardhana Matha (Puri, Orissa) and Sharada Matha (Dwaraka, Gujarat). The heads of the monasteries are called mahants (Peethadipathis) (the head of the Shringeri Matha is called jagadguru, “teacher of the world”); they continue to be consulted on points of doctrine and to be accorded the highest respect by Hindu laymen as well as by the ascetics who follow them.
Dashnami sannyasins typically wear ochre-coloured robes and, if they can obtain one, carry on their shoulders a tiger or leopard skin to sit on. They wear a mark (tilaka), ideally made with ash from a cremation fire, consisting of three horizontal bands across the forehead and on other parts of their body, and a necklace-rosary consisting of 108 rudraksha seeds. They allow their beards to grow and wear their hair loose about their shoulders or else tied in a topknot.

Some extreme dashnamis go about naked. They are called naga (“naked”) sannyasins and are the most militant among the ascetics. In the past the naga sannyasins on occasion engaged in battles with Islamic militants and with the naked ascetics of other Hindu sects.
