Vaikhanasa agama ( Samprokshana Vidhanam)

Jala samprokshana has to done in the following manner: Vastu homa and Punyaha should be done in the place either by using sand or bare ground to get the place purified. Also panca gavya should be used for sanctification. The image of the Lord should be given bath using kalasa reciting purusha sukta. Paddy equal to six dronas should be filled in 5 pots and they should be wrapped by a pair of cloth. The images of the Lord should be kept between them. Then the five murtis should be invited and worshipped using five suktas and a fire sacrifice. The sacrifice should be done using the 88 mantras along with panca varuna mantra and with maha vyahritis. And then the sanctified water should be sprinkled along with the necessary mantras. Sanctified thus, the image of the Lord will again retain the power of the Supreme without fail.
Laghu samprokshana has to be done in the following manner: More or less same as the above except the scale and the extra ritual. Ankurarpana should be done three or two days in advance. All the things mentioned above will be done. Lord should be given bath using 108 kalasas. 32 pots should be decorated with white threads and filled with water. Paddy equal to six bharas should be used as mentioned above. In the kumbha, nine gems should be put. (Or gold can be used). After the kalasa is worshipped with sandalwood, flowers etc 12 suktas should be recited. (Saraswata, swasti, Dik, Aushadhi etc.) After that Mula, Kushmanda, Panca Varuna, Dhata and Paramatmika homas should be done. The same 88 (Ashtasiti starting from "Eem") mantras mentioned above should be repeated 108 times or at least 28 times. Vishnu gayatri should also be used 108 times for homa( Lotuses or Bilwa leaves can be used). After that the acharya, after being decorated by fine silks and ornaments should carry the Kumbhaon his head and should do a pradakshina of the temple accompanied by sacred nadaswara and enter the sanctum and sprinkle the sacred water on the Lord's image and all the mandirams. The mantra to be used for this purpose is "Suchi vo havya...." and at the end ask for the forgiveness of the Lord. After that 1000 brahmins should be fed and then the daily worship can be carried as before. Doing laghu samprokshana guarantees reaching the abode of Lord after death for sure. It removes the defects due to impurities and then makes the country prosperous.
Maha samprokshana is much more complicated than the above two and is almost synonymous with re installation( Punah Pratishta) and hence will not be treated here. In the next post I will talk about the different kinds of Vishnu temples and their details.
