In this puja, Shiva Lingam is bathed with various aromatic liquids and sacred items such as milk, gangajal, honey, curd, sugarcane juice, bilva leaves etc. All the eleven forms of Rudra are worshiped by using 11 types of abhishekam, Rudra Vilva Archana, Shiva Astotra and 11 types of Namaskarams are performed.

 Special Instructions for Sponsorship Orders

Before each homam or puja is performed in Amma's Lalita Temple, a "sankalpa" is recited in Sanskrit, a divinely powerful language. Sankalpa is a special process involving Vedic incantations that energetically connect you and your family directly to any ritual. Amma assures us that when we are included in a sankalpa, we become spiritually connected to the power of the divine ceremony and receive its full benefits immediately, just as if we were physically present. 

In the section before below, please enter the name of the primary person for whom the puja is being sponsored. This name will be recited during the sankalpa. If you know the primary sponsor's nakshatra (Vedic birthstar), you may enter it below. If you don't know the gotra or nakshatra, it's fine to leave this blank.

  • These special homas and pujas will be performed early morning at Amma’s Penusila ashram in India. Please allow minimum 24 hours prior to date of sponsorship.
  • Prasadam will not be available from this puja due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.

A gotra is a lineage, akin to a family name, but the given name of a family is often different from its gotra, and may reflect the traditional occupation, place of residence or other important family characteristic rather than the lineage.
