Episode 7

Poonool, technically known as “Yajnopaveetham” is worn by the Brahmin and certain other communities, around the trunk of their body over the left shoulder and under the right arm, and represents clothing.
In early times, clothing was of two kinds, “Anthareeyam”, a piece of covering cloth, and “Uthareeyam”, a cloth or hide to cover the chest to keep the lungs warm and strong during Veda recital.
Poonool got the name Yajnopaveetham as it is to be specially worn during sacred rituals such as yajnam. Yajnam means Vishnu, while Upaveetham connotes a covering, and thus, together the word could mean a cover for the God that dwells in the heart.
Poonool is made of cotton thread or cloth or of Kusa grass wound around three times with the ends formed into a knot.
Wearers of Yajnopaveetham shall have control over their mind, word and body. It is worn to make one eligible to perform sacred rituals, for improving Brahma-Thejas, to receive God’s blessings through destruction of all troubles, and to enable one to perform all the daily rites and rituals prescribed in the Sruthi and Smrthi texts.
It is to be worn while serving teachers, the elderly and guests, and while performing Homam, Japam, consumption of food, Aachamanam, Veda-learning, etc. which have led to wearing it all the time.
