This question already has an answer here:

Can I do Sandhyavanadanam when Ladies in my home are under menstrual cycle ? Because of some unavoidable circumstances, Ladies can not sit separately during their period time.

I do 3 times Sandhyavandanam daily with lot of interest. But during Ladies period time, I am not doing that for 4 days thinking that it is not good to do Sandhyavandam during that time.

Can someone please advise on this? Is it correct that I am doing ? Somewhere I heard that we can do Sandhyavandanam during Asoucha perod also, but till Arghya Pradanam only, reciting silently. How far is it correct?

Thank you.

  • I am very happy to know that you perform Sandhyavandanam daily 3 times. The information regarding performance of Sandhyavandana in Ashoucha is correct. Regarding females in their cycle period, you must avoid any physical contact with them if you don't want to take bath. If possible you should seperate their room or restrict their access to the places like Kitchen and Temple. You should cook for her and you should give water(rembember Avoid physical contact). Do not consume food cooked by that woman. If physical contact is unavoidable you should take bath before Sandhyavandanam. – Yogi Oct 26 '16 at 18:05
  • Good to note that u r doing 3 times sandhyavandanam. How you are doing Madyahnigam? Sandhyavandhna is nithya karma anushtana which should not be left. If you have terrace or side passage in your house please perform there. Ensure the ladies undergoing period should not come there. You can do the full sandhyavandanam by reciting silently Pranayamam and gayatri japam will be told silently any day. Only upasthnam will be said in a voice which can be heard by others. recite that too silently. – Parthasarathy Raghavan Oct 27 '16 at 6:03
  • Thank you all for your valuable advises. Luckyly I have got an opportunity to work from home since past 1 yr. So I am doing Sandhyavandhana 3 times a day in a timely manner. When I go to Office I do Madyanigan in the morning itself. – Anil Oct 28 '16 at 4:32
  • @Anil--Madyanigam what time u perform when you go to office--It shld be after 8/30 am. two and half hours after the sunrise. That is why I cannot do madyanigam.How many times gayatri japam u perform during sandyavandhan? – Parthasarathy Raghavan Oct 28 '16 at 5:56
