Can a woman take the deeksha for Thaptha mudra after menopause?

  • You mean diksha? So this diksha is not available for women of all ages? – Rickross Aug 31 '17 at 15:47
  • I am not sure, few people say that -above 40+ women take diksha – Geethanjali Vittal Sep 12 '17 at 11:15
  • Just curious, what are all the symbols added in this rituals besides the conch and discus? Where are they added? Do you know? For the ritual of the Sri Vaishnavas, there is no age or gender restriction. – Sarvabhouma Sep 14 '17 at 7:47
  • If Madhavas follow Pancharatra then I don't think there are any of such restrictions because pancharatra allows everyone and anyone to be initiated (if he/she is not in ashoucha includes masika ashucha for women). – Yogi Sep 14 '17 at 10:51
  • If that is the case, I don't see all madhwa women applying it. There must be some restriction or rules to follow – Geethanjali Vittal Sep 20 '17 at 9:34
