Features of the Yagnya (yajna or sacrifice). Fourthly two Smārtha Agni (Sāmbhyāgni and Āvastyāgni) will be kindled. This is the opportunity for all those who have not taken Agni as witness for marriages/education/court cases etc,. All such Prāyahchithams will be done during this karma. Only those who do the Trethagni (the above said three types of Agni) Adānam will have the opportunity to do this karma in their lives. So one should use this occasion.
