Dear Sir, I have noticed a priest reusing the Dharbai (Pavithram) at our Temple in Wellington, New Zealand. I have always believed that you cannot do this, as we are normally asked to undo the knot and discard the Dharbai after a ceremony. Can you please offer your advice on this? Thanks Raghu

Answer: Yes, one can reuse the Same dharbam again and again for 7 times! But there is some conditions for this re-usage; when there is no fresh dharbam available, the used ones are from some auspicious function and it is certainly not used for any other inauspicous function. Your priest is right in doing so, if he followed the given guidelines for reusage. The same is clarified in the article about Dharbam in the page URL: https://www.trsiyengar.com/id65.shtml .
