Dhanur Masam - Davanothsavam (Jan. 7, 2021)

Amma's Sri Srinivasa Saligrama Temple - Bangalore, India
Davana is a sacred aromatic herb used since ancient times in the worship of Vedic deities. Offerings of Davana are said to remove inauspiciousness, obstacles, and prevent untoward incidents. In the ritual of Davanothsavam, Sri Bhu Sametha Sri Srinivasa is worshiped with this sacred davana leaf through archana with an intention of universal well-being and prosperity. This seva is a rare offering and witnessing it itself has the ability to remove all obstacles. We invite you to take part in this seva, and start this year obstacle free, with the grace of Sri Bhu Sametha Sri Srinivasa.

Sponsorship ends 6pm EST on Jan. 6


Special Instructions for Sponsorship Orders

Before each homam or puja is performed in Amma's Srinivas Saligrama 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 four 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 COVID-19 restrictions.


First Name and Last Name only. Please DO NOT add extra names.
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.
Add up to THREE additional sankalpa names in 'First name, Last name - Nakashtra format'. It is not necessary to add middle names, aliases etc. NOTE: If you do NOT follow this format, your sankalpa will be not be read by the priest.
Add alternate shipping address for prasadam if different from credit card billing address. Please note we cannot guarantee shipping to alternate addresses especially if overseas. Additional shipping charges may apply.
