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. During the sankalpa, the names of all the sponsors are recited. 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.


  • These will take place at Amma's Penusila ashram in India starting on the morning of Wed. July 21 (IST).
  • Sponsorship for July 21 ends at 8pm on July 20 (ET).
  • Blessed and energized prasadam will be mailed to you but due to the Covid-19 restrictions, please allow several weeks for the prasadam to reach you. Thank you for your understanding.
