Join Us for the Varahi Navaratri!
Goddess Varahi, also known as “Dandini”, is the commander-general of Lalita’s army. She is with the head of a sow and is the shakti (feminine energy) of Varaha, the boar avatar of Lord Vishnu. Varahi destroys all negative energies and provides a powerful protection to Her devotees, keeping them on the right path in life. Associated with Sri Mahalakshmi, She also bestows the necessary material blessings for a fulfilling life.
Varahi Navaratri is celebrated for a period of nine days and nights from Ashad Padyami to Navami, which falls on June 18 to June 26 this year. Daily Homam and Abhishekam will be performed each day.
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.
