Dhvajārohaṇa (ध्वजारोहण) refers to a certain ceremony as described in the Śaivāgamas.—The utsava should also be performed properly and with due care to all the composite rituals. If during the dhvajārohaṇa, the flag is hoisted without worshipping the vṛṣabha, it will cause destruction to the cows of the kingdom. The vṛṣayāga has to be performed at the base of the dhvajadaṇḍa. Mantranyāsa should be done on the top part of the dhvajadaṇḍa. [...] If the bherī (large drum) isn’t sounded at the time of dhvajārohaṇa, men will be born dumb. [...] Śantihoma should be performed and the bherī sounded again. If while performing at the dhvajārohaṇa or bali, the drummer falls down, the kingdom will fall into a bad state. Śāntihoma should be performed.
