Clarification on date for Yajur Upakarma

Sabha has received requests from members for a clarification on the performance for Yajur Upakarma (Avani Avittam) on 7th August 2017 on account of the lunar eclipse occurring late that night. This has given rise to another view that it should be performed subsequently on 6th September 2017.
 
Sabha had earlier discussed this with the Sabha Purohits in detail and will organise the mass conduct of Yajur Upakarma on 7th August 2017 at PGP hall as announced earlier.
 
In Singapore, the lunar eclipse commences past midnight at 1:23 am (on 8th August 2017). Thus restrictions on food and pooja will be applicable only from the afternoon of 7th August.  This will leave sufficient time for the conduct of Upakarma in the morning hours.
 
Further more, based on Singapore timings, the nakshatram on 6th September is not considered very appropriate for Yajur Upakarma. 
 
Incidentally 6th September is also the first day of Mahalaya Paksham. Though not a factor in considering the dates of Upakarma, given the fact that Sabha has only three Purohiths, logistically this is bound to have an effect on Purohit's availability that morning.
 
Notwithstanding, if members still desire to perform Yajur Upakarma on 6th September, Sabha will consider organising a single session on that morning at a suitable venue. For this purpose, a link for registration will be set up soon with a closing date to get a suitable venue in time. Thereafter the details will be informed (to the registrants directly).
