#Upakarma is the day a student of the Vedas renews their commitment to learning. The actual day of the Upakarma differs for the four branches of the Veda.
Yajurveda #upakarma - Is done on Dhanishta nakshatra (avittam) in Shravana month.
Sama Veda - Shravana Nakshatra in the Shravana month
Rig Veda - Hasta Nakshatra/Shukla Tritiya in Bhadrapada. This will invariably fall a day before #GaneshChaturthi
This is the day Vishnu assumed the #Hayagriva (horse head) form to recover the Vedas that were stolen by Madhu and Kaitabha. They were stolen by Madhu and Kaitabha on the bidding of Vishnu, in order to teach Brahma the Creator, a lesson in humility. #Upakarma
