Ugadi: Special Ganesha and Maha Lakshmi Homams - April 13, 2021

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!

Om Shreem Hreem Shreem Kamale Kamalalaye Praseeda Praseeda
Om Shreem Hreem Shreem Mahalakshmaye Namah॥

On Ugadi, two very special sacred fire ceremonies, Ganesha homam  (homam to remove any impediments on your way of success, as well as bring in luck and prosperity for you in the Vedic New Year) and Maha Lakshmi homam (homam to receive the blessings and grace of Goddess Lakshmi to bestow prosperity and wealth to you in the Vedic New Year).

Ugadi is regarded as the beginning of a new Hindu lunar calendar with a change in the moon's orbit. It is believed that the creator according to Hinduism, Lord Brahma started his work of creation on the Chaitra suddha padhyami (Ugadi). It is also considered that everyone has the right to attain Peace, Prosperity, Health, Wealth and Happiness and this can be done through the festival of Ugadi. Everyone has to change him or herself by replacing the vices with good virtues with the help of Spiritual or Godly knowledge.

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.

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 Ugadi: Special Ganesha and Maha Lakshmi Homams will take place at Amma's Penusila ashram in India on the morning of Tues. April 13 (IST).

Sponsorship ends at 7 pm on Mon. April 12 (EST)
