Proper way of saying Dhurmuki Year


Got this from Periyava Gruham, Salem.

Dhurmukhi.jpg

 

The following page in a krishna yajur veda book published 120 years back during the same year, it says “Dhurmukha samvatsara:” and not “Dhurmukhi samvatsara:”. This matters only when we do sankalpam in our puja/vedic events etc.

இந்த ஆண்டின் பெயரை துர்முகி என சொல்லக்கூடாது. துர்முக என்றுதான் சொல்ல வேண்டும். அதற்கு உதாரணமாக120 ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு இதே ஆண்டில் இந்த மாசத்தில் அச்சிடப்பட்ட 1896ஆம் ஆண்டில் வெளியிடப்பட்ட க்ருஷ்ண யஜுர்வேத ஸம்ஹிதா பத புஸ்தகத்தில் “துர்முக ஸம்வத்ஸர: ஆச்வயுஜ மாஸ:” என குறிப்பிட்டுள்ளது.

  1. Recently I saw a sankalpam done in Kashmir (for a veda pArAyaNa and homA) prescribed by Pujya Sri BAlaperiyavA.

    It also says “durmukha nAmani samvatsare”. I have changed to saying this way.

  2. Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara.Very useful information and authentic too, I have to change in sankalpa. Janakiraman, Nagapattinam

  3. Got corrected as Dhurmukha Nama Samvatsaram! May be Panchaangams from coming year onwards, can make the correction in the list of 60 Tamil years which they carry! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

  4. Thank so much Sir. We have arranged marriage for our daughter, this is a extremely useful information.
