Here, I think, “darśa” is the new moon day — in the common expression darśa-pūrṇamāsa. So a vyutkrama MAY be the performance of a new moon rite on the full moon day, and vice versa.

Dear list members,
In the 'Maṅgalavāda' by Varāhārya (probably, a XVII century Navyanyāya work) I came across a sentence:
rātri-śrāddhādau vyutkrama-kṛta-darśādau ca śiṣtācāra-darśanena tena maṅgalasya saphalatva-kalpanānupapatteḥ.
I'm puzzled about what "vyutkrama-kṛta-darśa' might mean. A Moon rite performed in an inverted order?
I'll be glad to learn your suggestions.
