The birthday of Hanuman is celebrated as Hanuman Jayanthi. The day falls on the Purnima Tithi (Full Moon day) of Chaitra month. Depicted as a monkey-god, Hanuman is regarded as an avatar (incarnation) of Shiva and an ardent devotee of Rama, the 7th incarnation of Vishnu. Hanuman is known by several names like Anjaneya, Maruti, Kesari Nandan, Bajrang Bali, etc. According to mythology, Hanuman is considered as ‘Chiranjeevi’ - an immortal, the one who lives forever.
Hanuman Jayanthi or the birthday of Hanuman is considered as the best day for worshiping Hanuman, as his energy is abundantly available. Performing homam and puja and chanting of mantras on Hanuman Jayanthi will appease the powerful God on his birthday and help you seek his protection and ensure safety from negativities.
Worshiping Hanuman especially on his birthday will instill courage, strength, confidence, and reduce the malefic effects of planet Saturn in your birth chart.
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.
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.
