My father attained Parama-Padam (SriVaikuntam) in January this year and we were told not to visit any Tirtha Kshetras for one year.

But, we are very keen to visit Tirtha Kshetras and we are in a dilemma about this matter.

So, my question is, can one visit Tirtha Kshetras during the period of Asaucha?

  • The practice followed by shishtas is to avoid going to any shrine that is on a hill until the end of the year. Thus, it may be okay to visit the shrine at the base of the Sholingapuram hill but not the shrines on top of the actual hill. – hashable May 25 at 6:04

  • What is adiyen and what is panama-adam? You need to post in a language that everyone understands – Rickross May 25 at 11:29
  • @Rickross I think he meant parama-padam which means vaikuntaloka... Also, adiyen is a Tamil SriVaishnava term roughy translating to servant. It is a term used by SriVaishnava Brahmins who have undergone Pancha Samskaram to signify that they are now servants of Lord Vishnu and Swami Ramanuja. – Hayagreev Ram May 25 at 11:55
