Join Us for Kedara Gauri Vratam!
During this 21-day vratam, we worship Lord Siva as Sri Ardhanariswara, in honor of Sri Parvati’s attaining the boon of becoming half of Lord Siva’s body. On each night of the vratam, worship is performed and auspicious items are gifted to ladies. By observing this vratam, we can attain the divine grace of Lord Siva and Divine Mother for spiritual upliftment and oneness with divine consciousness.
Sponsorships and Blessed Prasadam
If you would like to help sponsor the festival, please click on the button below to view available sponsorships. Sponsorships help to cover the cost of fruits, milk, ghee, flowers and garlands offered during the puja and abhishekam. In gratitude for your kind offering, we will give you blessed and energized prasadam from the event.
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.
