Mukkoti Vaikunta Ekadashi (Dec. 25, 2020) - Sahasra Deepalankara Seva

Mukkoti Vaikunta Ekadashi – a once-in-a-year powertime event when Lord Vishnu opens 'Vaikunta Dwaram' (Gates of Heaven) enabling you to receive material and spiritual blessings.

Sahasra Deepalankara Seva

Sahasra Deepalankara Seva is performed with the lighting of 1000 lamps. The idols of the Lord and His consorts are taken out in a procession. The idols are placed on a swing in the mandapam of the temple. Before the seva begins, the mandapam is lit up with a thousand lamps. The Lord and His consorts are rocked gently amidst the Vedic chanting by the priests and the singing of sankirtanas.

Sponsorship ends 6pm EST on Dec. 24.

 

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.
