Purpose is to open a small Hindu Temple with installation of one Deity/Hindu God – Lord Ganesha and Maha Meru to represent Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati. All Deities (other than Lord Ganesha) to be installed in a phased manner.
All traditional Religious Ceremonies will be conducted regularly from 7am - 1pm and 4pm - 9pm daily on weekdays and full day on the weekends and festivals by qualified Hindu Pujaris or Priests. All are welcome!
Includes a small Community Center for those interested in Hindu Religion, Indian Culture and Traditions. All are welcome!
Sri Maha Sudharshana Homam or Sacred Fire Ceremony is being planned. All are welcome, irrespective of caste, creed, gender or religion!
The Sudharshana Chakra is the powerful weapon of Lord Vishnu, the preserver of the Universe. Lord Vishnu holding the mighty Sudarshana Chakra has always been portrayed as fighting and destroying negative forces. It also brings immediate relief from unexplainable sufferings or worries leading to immense success, deep levels of purification with restoration of energy, rejuvenation of health and prosperity.
Homam duration will be six hours, from 7am to 1pm, on a highly auspicious day for new beginnings - Vasant Panchami. 64 Gods and Goddesses will be invoked!
Followed by distribution of Prasad or Blessed Food.
More details to follow.
Venue is TBD (planning for in and around Washington Heights or Harlem, Downtown Manhattan etc)
Cost is TBD (put away anywhere between $31.00 to $51.00 to $108.00 to $151.00 which is incredibly low intentionally). Ideally, it will be great if attendees can attend this for free but it's not possible to do that unfortunately.
Please join us with your family, friends and relatives for this auspicious Homam and take the blessings of Lord Sudharshana and Narasimha Swamy.
Please RSVP and also spread the word which will help in determining final venue location and costs.
Thank you very much,
