The month of Karthika falls under the Dakshinayana period and is regarded as highly auspicious for performing Sadhana. This period is significant in Hindu culture since it is the time when the year moves into the ‘Kaivalya Pada’. The Sadhanas pada is the period associated with reaping the rewards of your actions, i.e. what you sow, you shall reap. Performing Sadhana offers an incredible opportunity to delve into your inner consciousness and benefit from the good actions you have committed. Karthika month is also called the ‘Damodar’ month and considered as a great time for the welfare of mankind, since it glorifies both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu.
This sponsorship is for a full day seva of all the pujas with emphasis on the nakshatra for the day for one primary sponsor during Karthika Masam - Nov. 16 to Dec. 14. Please read Amma's Karthika Masam guidelines at www,mandweepa.org to determine the special day for your nakshatra.
NOTE: This sponsorship does NOT include the special Somvara pujas and abhishekams on Nov 16, 23, 30 and Dec 7, 14.
These sacred ceremonies bring mental and physical health, karmic purification, long life, and protection from accidents and untimely death. They also bring Lord Shiva's blessing for pure, deep meditation.
Sponsorship ends 18 hours prior to the start of the nakshatra seva date
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 and nakshatra of the primary person for whom the puja is being sponsored. This name will be recited during the sankalpa. If you don't know the gotra it's fine to leave this blank.
ONLY If the prasadam shipping address is different from the billing address, please complete the field below. Please be aware that it may take several weeks to receive your prasadam, since it is being mailed from India during Covid-19 restrictions.
