Nowadays, most of us live in apartments where it may not be built according to our wishes. We adjust to the way it is built. In many flats, we have to pass by (or pass through) the kitchen / Pooja place to reach other places. When we used to live in independent houses or agraharam concept and when we have ladies in the house who are in menstrual cycle, they used to stay at isolated location with their own set of eating vessels, clothes, etc. But this is not practically workable in apartments. Ladies can stay away from kitchen area and move around the house and somehow manage. But in today’s nuclear family scenario, when we don’t have anyone else in the house, it is just not possible to avoid coming inside the kitchen. During these days, should we perform Aradanam and open the sannithi and perform religious practices (decorate with flowers, light the lamp, recite slokas) or keep the sannithi door shut till the time is over. What practice to be followed during these periods in a month? I came across similar question earlier, but it didnt seem to contain my specific doubt. In case, I had overlooked, please direct me to those answers

Answer: Since the other part of the answers to your question is already given under the Srivaishnavam Practices FAQ, (Question & Answer # 77) I give the answer only concerning daily thiruvarathanam. In such circumstances, one can close the Sannidhi and perform the manaseeka aradhanam (recitals by heart and bhavana). This is the only possible way under such circumstances, if one does not want to skip the daily routines and prayers! This kind of thiruvaradhanam is permitted under different kind of circumstances – war, natural calamity, while travelling long distances etc. Now we have to add this exception to the dormitary residing persons family conditions too. If one can do the Graha suddhi puNyahvachanam, after the end of course period, it is still better.
