So that anyone willing to do a Vedic ritual like a Puja or a Homam will have a standard and the same procedure to follow.

Right now, every region, every sampradaya have their own way of doing things which should not be the case in my opinion.

Is any such procedure mentioned in any of the 4 Vedas?

PS-Achamanam is the purification ritual which usually consists of sipping water three times associated with mantras in an effort to aptly purify oneself before doing a ritual like Puja etc.

  • Sandhyavandanam Achman is same for everybody, so as far as vedic achman is considered it is same for everyone(regardless of sect and philosophy). – Yogi Feb 19 '17 at 11:02
  • @Yogi How can the Sandhya achamana be the same given that there are N number of Sandhya vidhis followed by different Veda Shaka followers?..FOr ex-the Paipladin Shaka of Atharva Veda uses "Om Pranaya Swaha,Apanaya swaha ,Vyanaya Swaha "as their achamana mantra..and there r several others too.. – Rickross Feb 20 '17 at 5:18
  • Okay I think achyutaya namaha...etc is the standard vedic achman. I need to find out more about this because rigvedi and yajurvedi achman are same afaik. – Yogi Feb 20 '17 at 5:43
  • I don't know which Shaka I belong to. But I am a Krishna Yajurvedi. Should I learn entire Krishna Yajur Veda? – user9554 Dec 29 '17 at 13:51
