During Deepawali (Diwali) the "Festival of Lights," Mother Lakshmi rushes to bless her children with peace, joy, loving harmony, and every kind of auspicious wealth.
Special Deepawali Maha Lakshmi Homas and Pujas will be performed for three days (Nov.12-14) in Amma's divine presence at Her Penusila Ashram in India. These powerful ceremonies will bring light into one's heart, create harmony in the home, and increase every kind of wealth, like financial wealth, wealth of health, wealth of positive thinking, or the wealth of peace and contentment. When these homas are performed on these day sacred to the Goddess of Divine Light - Sri Dhana Lakshmi Devi, the benefits we receive are multiplied many times over.
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 festival is being sponsored. This name will be recited during the sankalpa. Please list up to five additional names and nakshatras only. It is not necessary to list all family members' names, as they will automatically receive blessings through the primary sponsor. 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.
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 restrictive mailing periods.
