Pavamaan Sookt or Punyah Vachanam is nothing but blessing words by Braahman and is performed for cleansing the place, such as after the child birth on the 10th day. For this Varun Dev is invoked in a Kumbh (pitcher) filled with water and fixing mango leaves , Coconut on top with some cardamom and cloves put inside water, and the Pavamaan Sookt is recited if Ved Abhyaas has been learnt. This water is sprinkled all over the house and a little bit is swallowed too by one and all.
Similarly after the
passing away of a family member this is done on the 10th day and
repeated again on the 13th day. Some very very orthodox people get it
done from outside and bring the water to be sprinkled all over the house
even on all the clothes etc inside cuoboards.
If any Ved recital CDs are
sold by various people or traders like Giri Trading Co. look whether it
contains this Sookt.
