Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

After the Acharya undertakes the chAturmAsya sankalpam with the above words, the sishyas gathered will tell the AcharyA the following verse

“Nivasanthu sukhenAthra gamishyAmaha kruthArthathAm !
YathAsakthi cha sisrooshAm karishyAmO vayam mudha !!”

meaning “You (the AchArya) please kindly stay in this place with all happiness and bless us for an opportunity to serve you. We vow to serve you to the best of our abilities”

The significance of starting the sankalpam on Aashada Pournami is that it is celebrated as the avathAram day of the great sage VyAsa who organized the Apourusheya Vedas into 4 major sections.(Rig: 1131 Sakhas or Recensions divided into Rig (21 sakhas), Yajur: 101 sakhas, Sama: 1000 sakhas and Atharvana Veda: 9 sakhas); wrote the Brahma Sutras (555 Sutras); wrote 18 Maha Puranas which includes Srimath BhAgavatham (Brahma Purana, Padma Purana, Bhagavata Purana, Siva Purana, Skanda Purana, Garuda Purana, Brahmanda Purana etc. Of these 18, Vishnu Purana was wrote by Vysacharya's father Parasaracharya, but was edited and presented by Vyasa). He is also celebrated as “VyAsAya vishnu rupAya vyAsa rupAya vishnave” in Vishnu Sahasranam and by our Swami Desikan as “mey alladhu viLambhadha vyAsan kAttum vilakillA nan neRiyE viRaindhu selveer”. Such is the great significance of this chAturmAsya sankalpam day.

Shaka vruta will end with samarpana mantra:

           Upaayanamidham Dheva Vrutha sampoorthiHethaVe
           Shakam thu Dhvijavaryaaya sahiranyam dhadhamyaham.

As you have mentioned in dhadhi vruta curds(yoghurt ) is not allowed for consumption but buttermilk is permitted. Here there is an important aspect which should be noticed is even though we can use buttermilk the butter from the curds should be removed by churning it thoroughly before using it.  Then it will fulfil the purpose of dhadhi vruta. Dhadhi vruta sankalpa mantra:

            Dhadhi Bhadhrapada Maasi varjayishyE sadha harE
            Imam karishyE niyamam nirvignam kuru keshava.

In Kshira vruta milk and food prepared using milk like khova etc... are not permitted.  Kshiravruta sankalpa mantra:

            Kshiravrutamidham DhEva GruhItham purathasthava
            Nirvignam sidhdhiMaayathu prasaadhaththe ramaapathE.
