The sacred Vaikhanasa texts prescribe that this important festival must be performed every year on a specified day Pavitrotsavams mean “pavitra dharanaya sahakritam utsavam”, which means “the Utsavams which involve adorning pavitrams” (the sacred garlands made with pure silk thread of different colors). Another meaning “pavlbyaha vajrasamanebhyaha doshebhyah trayate iti pavitram”. The expiations which are equal to Vajrayudha (the weapon of Indra) in strength are removed by performing the Pavitrotsavams.
