Sri Gurubhyo Namaha!
Dear Devotees and BPA family members,
With our Gurunathas blessings and all of your support and best wishes, we had a very active and blessed Summer programs this year with Sahasrachandi Maha Yagna in San Jose, California and Shata Chandi Homam in Toronto, Chicago and New Jersey. It was overwhelming to see all the disciples from different locations come together and involve themselves in these homams with great affection and enthusiasm. We offer our sincere pranams to Sri Gnanananda Teertha Swamiji for his blessings and Sri Yegnarathna Deekshidar for being with us and guiding us during these events. We thank all the volunteers and supporters from the bottom of our hearts for their support and active participation, may blessings of our Gurus and Maha Tripura Sundari be always with you.

2) Lalita Sahasranama Koti Archana - Texts and Audio with Puja Vidhi and Namavali now available
With the blessings of our Gurus Sri Vimarshananda Nathendra Saraswati Swamiji, Sri Gnanananda Teertha Swamiji, Sri Yegnarathnam Deekshitar and Sri Ramakrishna Deekshitar, we have commenced the Lalita Sahasranama Koti Archana to invoke the blessings of the joyful Lalita Maha Tripura Sundari to bestow every enjoyment one can get in this world.
Each Lalitha Sahasranamam Archana consists of 1000 names of Goddess Lalita Maha Tripura Sundari and when this one set of 1000 names is chanted 10,000 times we can complete the Koti Archana.
Our Guru Sri Vimarshananda Swamiji always insisted on performing Lalitha Sahasranama Parayanam on a frequent basis and toured all over India to teach devotees to chant Lalitha Sahasranamam for more than 50 years. As our humble offering to our Guru, we wish that devotees from all parts of the world join us by performing the Lalitha Sahasranamam Archana.
To facilitate everyone to perform this Archana on a daily basis, we have published the Lalitha Sahasranamam Namavali book in Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and English. Please click on the languages to be directed to respective texts.
This book also contains simple method for performing the Puja before starting the Archana and the concluding steps.
Also, audio resources for performing the Puja is published to enable devotees to chant along with the audio recording. Please click here to find the audio.
We sincerely pray that we can complete this divine endeavour by June 2020 so that we can have the conclusion of this Koti Archana in various cities of USA and Canada during Summer 2020.
To enable us to plan better, we invite devotees across the globe to pledge a number of Archanas they would like to perform towards the Koti Archana. Please click on the link if you would like to pledge: http://bit.ly/KotiArchanaPledge
To facilitate this divine event and to encourage many devotees to participate, group chanting sessions are planned in various places in USA and Canada. Individuals can also perform at their houses and log the Archana counts using this link http://bit.ly/KotiArchanaLog
