Svagṛha (स्वगृह) refers to “one’s own home”, according to the Ambāmatasaṃhitā verse 18-119-12.—Accordingly, “Washing first (his) food with water, he should eat it with the left hand. Maintaining the vow of purity and silence, (he should remains) concentrated and content. All the food he has earned is the sacrificial pap (caruka) he eats. The pervasion (vyāpti) (of the deity) and success in the repetition of mantra (japasiddhi) arise due to that. This should be done in one’s own home [i.e., svagṛha] or in a secluded place where there are no other people. Otherwise, the householder should not do it”.
