Sri Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal, the junior pontiff of the Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt highlighted the importance of Samithadhaanam, a ritual of agni, for every brahmachari. He was speaking at the launch of the book ‘Samithadhaanam’ in Tamil by Sri Sarma Sastrigal recently.

“Samithadhaanam is a ritual of agni, which should be mandatorily performed by every brahmachari whose Upanayanam has been conducted. In recent times youngsters have ignored this ritual, and this trend needs to be reversed. Parents have the all-important role of getting the brahmacharis to regularly perform sandhyavandanam and samithadhaanam,” he said.

He also added that Sarma Sastrigal had explained the importance of the ritual with great clarity in his book. Sri Jayendra Saraswati, the senior pontiff of the Kanchi Mutt, praised the efforts of the author.

Sri Sarma Sastrigal can be contacted at 9444380973.
