Adiyen, Swamy, I had few doubts regarding the practices which are followed during Shraadham and also during the 1st year of a person’s death in the family:
- Why people say that the kartha shouldn’t go to temple for a period of 1 year?
- Why shouldn’t kartha go to the temple on the day of Sharaadham or masikam?
- Why some people don’t do Sandhyavandanam (precisely japam) during Sutakam? Isn’t it our Nityakarma?
- Should Garudapuranam be studied only during these 10 days of the person’s death? Shouldn’t be read inside the house?
