Hi. Can someone please explain the different types of eduppus and also explain how to end a thaniavarthanam with a korvai on a particular eduppu?

Let it be any eduppu in any tala. First we must find out if the eduppu itself is divisible by three so that we make a korvai from samam to graham. If the eduppu is not divisible by 3 then keep adding tala cycles until the eduppu becomes divisible by 3. for example adi tala 1 kaLai 1/2 aksharam (Devi neeye thunai charanam - alaimagal Kalaimagal) is not divisible by three. add one avartanam and make it 2+32 = 34 still not divisible by 3. Add one more avartanam 34+32 = 66 which is divisible by 3 and the result is 22. So any korvai that is made (irrespective of number of avartana it spans) should fall after 22/32 for the first time and that repeated for 3 times gets us to the graha of the kriti. Same rule applies to all talas all grahas.

For Rupaka Tala 2/12 eduppu kOrvais cant be achieved through arithmetic progression. With kArvais in geometric progression of 1,2 and 4 this could be achieved.
