In the month of Karthika, Lord Shiva showers his abundant grace on the sponsor for inner peace, physical and mental healing, and deep meditation.
Karthika is the most auspicious month for worshiping Lord Shiva, and Somavara (Monday) is the most auspicious day of the week for his worship. The five Mondays (Nov. 16, 23, 30 and Dec. 7, 14) in the month of Karthika are thus dedicated to the performance of puja and abhishekam to Lord Shiva.
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.
If you wish to sponsor more than one Monday's puja, please choose the appropriate sponsorship dates below and change the quantity to the number of days being sponsored
Sponsorship ends 18 hours prior to the start of the Somavara puja 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 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.
