"Those who worship Divine Mother with great devotion during Navaratri will definitely obtain her complete grace. Mother is ageless, and she has been receiving worship during countless Navaratris, for many ages, through her myriad names and forms. As she is the supreme energy, those who worship that great divine energy throughout Navaratri will become filled with an abundance of radiant energy. They will attain every kind of wealth, including the wealth of peace, wisdom and salvation."  ~  Amma

There is no seva more dear Amma to than providing Her Holiness’s children with hot, fresh, nourishing meals. Amma has said that so many of the merits that we gain can slowly be depleted over time, like water dripping out of a cracked vessel. But the benefits that we receive from Annadanam will never diminish. By supporting this noble cause, sponsors will be helping feed the tens of thousands Divine Mother devotees that will attend the Navaratri Celebrations at the ashram. Sponsors will also receive energized prasadam from the Navaratri Homas and Pujas.

 * This sponsorship must be received by 6:00pm Eastern Time on October 16

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. The primary sponsor’s 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, leave the field blank or ‘unknown’. DO NOT add extra information in any fields as it will not be processed for this sponsorship.       

ONLY If the prasadam shipping address is different from the billing address, please complete the field below. Please note that additional shipping charges may apply for alternate shipping addresses and that it may take several weeks to receive your prasadam.

First Name and Last Name only. Please DO NOT add extra names.
According to Vedic Astrology, Nakshatra refers to the stars/constellations. The 360⁰ zodiac system is divided into 12 zodiac signs. There is a total of 27 Nakshatras in astrology, and hence the value of each star is 13⁰ 20’. In ancient times, Nakshatras are considered as a means of worshipping the divine. These 27 constellations are based on the movement of the Moon, which travels approximately 27.3 days around its orbit. Hence, the birth star of an individual is calculated based on the position of the Moon in any of these stars.
Add up to four additional sankalpa names in first name, last name format. It is not necessary to add middle names, aliases etc.
Please note only the primary sponsor's name and 'Saha Kutumbasya' will be recited 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.
