Sri Vidya Maha Ganapati Puja & Homa - Ganesha Navaratri Festival (Day 5 - Sept. 14, 2021)

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!

Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular of Hindu festivals. This is the birthday of Sri Ganesha. It is the day most sacred to Lord Ganesha .

There is no day more powerful to pay homage to the remover of obstacles, the majestic Lord Ganesha, than this day. On the auspicious 4th day after the new moon in the lunar month of Bhadrapada, Ganesha was born from the body of Parvati Devi Herself. When we worship Lord Ganesha on this day known as Ganesha Chaturthi, His blessings pour into our life, removing obstacles, protecting us and gracing us in so many ways

On this fifth Ganesha Chaturthi Navaratri day, the following very powerful pujas (ritual worship) and homas (sacred fire ceremonies) will be performed at Amma’s Forest Ashram to help with memory power, intellect, purity of mind, focus and concentration. The Shanti homa will remove undesired astrological effects on your nakshatra.

  • Abhishekas with panchamrtam
  • Decoration with flowers
  • 108 Names Archana with flowers
  • Harati
  • Naivedya Samarpanam
  • Sri Navagraha Shanti Homam
  • Sri Vidya Ganapati Homan with 1001 modukas
  • Evening: Pradosha puja, naivedya and special Maha Mangala Harati.

Amma has directed her temple priests to perform these special pujas and homas during this Ganesh Chaturthi Navaratri, as these sacred and authentic ceremonies will become even more powerful due to them being performed on these very sacred days.

Sri Ganesha will protect you from any bad luck and will remove all obstructions from your path, such that you will enjoy renewed hope, abundant energy, and an inspired enthusiasm for life.

Those who sponsor will have these ceremonies performed on their behalf (as well as on the behalf of their family members) and will be sent energized prasadam.

Jai Sri Ganesha!

"Nakshatra" means "birth star," and this term refers to the constellation of stars that most strongly influences your mind, your basic nature, and your life patterns. There are twenty-seven nakshatras, and each person falls under one nakshatra, according to the time and place of birth. Each nakshatra grants certain positive tendencies as well as negative tendencies.


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.

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.


The Sri Vidya Maha Ganapati Puja & Homa will take place at Amma's Penusila ashram in India on Tues. Sept. 14 (IST).

Sponsorship ends at 7 pm  (ET) on Mon. Sept. 13

A gotra is a lineage, akin to a family name, but the given name of a family is often different from its gotra, and may reflect the traditional occupation, place of residence or other important family characteristic rather than the lineage.
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 THREE (3) additional sankalpa names in 'First name, Last name - Nakashtra format'. It is not necessary to add middle names, aliases etc. NOTE: If you do NOT follow this format, your sankalpa will be not be read by the priest.
Add a different shipping address for prasadam delivery. Please note we cannot guarantee shipping to alternate addresses especially if overseas. Additional shipping charges may apply especially if overseas.
