Respected sir, It is common practice that during menses, a woman stays away from religious duties, and on the 4th day, after taking head bath, the woman can resume religious duties. I have however heard that even the 3rd day is approved for a woman to participate in relegious activities. I have invited many ladies for vethalai paaku on Saturday – that will be my 3rd day. Is it ok to take a head/manjal bath and host this event or is it better to reschedule ? Thank you very much..

Answer: For all the religious & spiritual rituals (known as Vaideeka Karma) that concern Homam/Aaradhanam etc., it is strongly advised to avoid the first four days, as only eligible from the fifth day. This is as per Sasthra quote. For other non-ritual functions (known as Loukeekam – not concerning any Homam etc. such as visit to some others home, exchange of Vethilai/Pakku etc. which are considered as non ritualistic customs) one can do it on the 4th day.
