prepared so many shastra granthas, vyaakhyaa, Teeka granthas
has helped us a lot in learning ancient granthas. So, we have
Runa to them – yathi runa. That is why we have to Yati
Mahalaya.
This shradha to be done by Yathiputras only. Who are
yathiputraas? - Those who have Grantha/Shastra Runa from
the yathigalu are termed as “Yathiputraas.” Yathi Shraddha
