On Sun, May 29, the Sri Vidya Temple will hold a special event to bless the ground where the new Temple will be built. We’ll be conducting a group Lalita Sahasranama Laksha Kumkumarchana and Mahalakshmi Homa, and we invite all devotees to come together and add your sincere prayers for the success of the Granite Temple with Rajagopuram Project.
The Laksha Lalita Sahasranama Kumkumarchana will start at 8am, and Lalita Sahasranama Kumkumarchana will be performed every hour on the hour. The final round will commence at 12pm. Anyone is welcome to come and join throughout the day. As the culmination of the event, Mahalakshmi Homa will be performed with the powerful and auspicious “Sri Mahalakshmi Kamala Mantra” at 1pm. This mantra is known to invoke the supreme divine blessings of Sri Mahalakshmi Devi for every kind of wealth.
All are welcome to come and chant Lalita Sahasranama and/or perform kumkumarchana during the parayanam. If you are not able to come physically, please join us virtually via livestream and chant or perform kumkumarchana from your homes. If you plan to chant Lalita Sahasranama and help us reach our count of 100 parayanas, please register to chant by clicking below.
This is a divine opportunity to receive the blessings of Sri Lalita Devi and Sri Maha Lakshmi while blessing the new Temple construction.
There is no charge to perform kumkumarchana, but for those who would like to receive blessed prasadam including energized gold or silver coins or a blessed thread, please take a look at the Kumkumarchana sponsorships. Mahalakshmi homa participation is also available. Please click below for more details. All proceeds from these sponsorships will go towards new Temple construction.
For some sponsorships, we will include your name in the sankalpam chanted before the event. The sankalpam is a Sanskrit statement recited before any major puja or homa. When your name is recited in the sankalpam, it creates a subtle energetic bond between you and the puja or homa, bringing divine blessings to you and your family.
All sponsors receive blessed and energized prasadam from the event. Blessed prasadam usually includes small packets of kumkum and/or vibhuti as well as special items like a blessed thread, yajna raksha, or other holy items. Please read the sponsorship descriptions carefully to understand whether sankalpam is included and what kind of prasadam will be given. If you are not able to attend the festival physically, the prasadam will be mailed to you.
