Opportunities to sponsor the saris that will be offered, at $108 USD each, are available to everyone. Once the archana is complete, these saris will be prasadam for those who have sponsored. This is our first archana of this kind and a very unique opportunity for devotees to participate in and sponsor!
The Significance of Lalitha Sahasranamam
Unlike many other forms of mantras and prayers that are chanted, Lalita Sahasranamam is truly special and one-of-a-kind.
It is of apauruseya origin, meaning it was not created by any human. At the command of Lalita, the eight vagdevatas, goddesses of speech, composed the Lalita Sahasranamam.
Of all the different sahasranamams, the one for Lalita is said to be the most auspicious. There are no filler words found within it and it has no punarukti dosham, meaning no duplication of names. It is also what you would call a maala mantra, meaning that each individual name (all 1000) is itself a mantra.
Sharada Navaratri and the Power of a Vastra Archana
During Sharada Navaratri, our mantras, acts of worship, and prayer are all amplified a thousand times over. This form of worship, an archana where Lalita Sahasranamavali is recited in a group setting, is far more powerful now than any other time of the year. For those experiencing any challenges, undergoing a period of change and uncertainty, starting a business, or dealing with personal difficulties, such blessings can provide the support, guidance, and stability you seek!
