Sri gurubhyO namaha
With the grace of our Guru and Goddess Chandika Mahalakshmi, we are poised to successfully complete the first ever sahasrachandi yagna mahOtsava in the western United States.
We are pleased to recognize the efforts of our disciples across North America and Canada who have helped us complete 1000+ parayanams of Devi Mahatmyam, 1,000,000 Navakshari mula mantra japam, and 100 + homams.
The event started off with a full set of Purvanga pujas followed by Ghatasthapanam, Chandi Avarana Puja, Gurupaduka Abhishekam and Chaturavarthi Tarpanam.
This was followed by Ganapathi Homam, Navagraha Homam, Vaastu Homam, Shanti Homam, Nakshatra Homam, Raashi Homam, Sri Rudra Homam and Sundari Garbhita Purusha Suktham and Sri Suktham Homam, and 100,000 Navakshari Mula Mantra homam on first two days of this event.
Through out this span of 9 days, Chandi Avarana puja, Devi Mahatmyam Parayanam, Lalitha Sahasranama and Trishati parayanam were performed on a daily basis. On Tuesday July 30, a special Rajopacharam was performed to Devi with Ashtaavadhana Sevas.
