Anvāhārya (अन्वाहार्य):—[tatpurusha compound] 1. m.

(-ryaḥ) Rice which is given as a present to the priests upon certain sacrificial occasions, as at the performance of the Darśapūrṇamāsa; (presents therefore of a garment or of a calf are not an anvāhārya;) the sacrificial acts must be, moreover, such as are connected with the ritual of the Yajurveda (‘anvāhāryadakṣiṇādhvaryuvede’). Comp. anvāhāryapacana. 2. n.

(-ryam) The monthly Śrāddha or funeral repast in honour of the Manes, held on the day of the new moon; it should consist of meat of an excellent quality and is so called, because it is partaken after the presentation of a piṇḍa to the Manes (comp. piṇḍānvāhāryaka); according to this definition of Manu, it would be the same as the pārvaṇa q. v.—others, as quoted by Bharatamalla on the Amarak. s. v., define it as the monthly Śrāddha at the end of the year, when the presentation of the piṇḍa has not taken place (‘akṛtasapiṇḍīkaraṇasya vatsarānte pratimāsaṃ yacchrāddhaṃ tatrānvāhāryamiti kecit’). According to the Gṛhyasūtra of Gobhila (as quoted by Rādhākāntadeva) it would be [a.]) the Śrāddha which is the preparatory act to any religious ceremony, [b.]) the second Śrāddha performed on the day of the new moon, and [c.]) the same as anvāhārya m., but in the more general sense of a present given at the end of any sacrificial act: ‘yacchrāddhaṃ karmaṇāmādau yā cānte dakṣiṇā bhavet . amāvāsyaṃ dvitīyaṃ yadanvāhāryaṃ vidurbudhāḥ . iti gobhilagṛhyam’.—See also anuhārya and the following. E. anu and āhārya, 1. scil. odana, 2. scil. śrāddha.
