Join Us for Saturday Homa & Abhishekam!
Our Saturday Abhishekam and Homam program starts at 9:00 AM with Kamadhenu Puja and ends with lunch, which is usually between 2 and 3 PM. Everyone who comes will have the opportunity to offer milk to Ganapati, Devi and Siva with their own hands. Whenever possible, newcomers will also have the chance to perform abhishekam to Devi with the energized sanka tirtham from the Kalasa Puja.
Please be advised that we have a dress code in our Temple. The sequence of events for our Saturday program is as follows.
- Kamadhenu Puja
- Puja to Outside Ganapati (Weather Permitting)

For more information, you can view our FAQs, get directions to our location, or learn more about our dress code. As mentioned above, we encourage everyone to perform milk abhishekam with their own hands during the program. It’s hard to predict when the abhishekam will be done, but it usually takes place some time between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM.
Lunch is usually served between 2 and 3 PM, and like every meal, it is served for free to all who come. If you are interested in sponsoring the program by participating in the Kalasa Puja and Homam, please call the Temple to learn more and schedule your participation.
Sponsorships and Blessed Prasadam
If you would like to help sponsor the Saturday puja and abhishekam, 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.
