Join Us for a Children’s Saraswati Homa!
Every year, a special homam in honor of Sri Matangi is held at the Sri Vidya Temple. Matangi is a form of Sarasvati Devi, and like Sarasvati, she blesses her devotees with knowledge and the 64 different art forms.
The uniqueness of this homam is that it is the kids who get the chance to organize, run and participate in the puja and homam.
Please note: While only children and youth between the ages of 6 – 21 can participate in the homam, devotees of any age can be in the sankalpam.
Sponsorships and Blessed Prasadam
If you would like to help sponsor the homa, 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.
Please note that while only children from the ages of 7 – 21 can participate in the homam, devotees of any age can be in the sankalpam.
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.
