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 home 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 the COVID-19 pandemic.


The special Shravana Masam Friday homas dedicated to Sri Mahalakshmi will take place at Amma's Penusila ashram in India beginning Friday July 24.

FULL Sponsorship ends on Thurs. July 23 at 7pm (EST). You may still participate after this date for the remaining pujas. Please be sure to sponsor min. 24 hours in advance of the puja date to allow for processing and time difference.
