Spiritual Events and Satsang

Vedic Homas for Health and well-being: 6 am - 8 am

Ganapati Homa - 3rd January 2024

At the commencement of any sacred undertaking, it is imperative to invoke the divine presence of Lord Ganapati, the remover of obstacles. By performing Ganapati Homa on the 3rd of January 2024, we seek the blessings of Vighna Vinashaka, the dispeller of hindrances, to pave the way for a smooth and successful spiritual journey. May his divine energy guide us through challenges and grant us the strength to overcome all obstacles on our path.

Dhanvantari Homa - 4th January 2024

On the 4th of January 2024, we engage in the sacred practice of Dhanvantari Homa to invoke the benevolent presence of Lord Dhanvantari, the divine physician. By seeking his blessings, we aspire to cultivate and maintain good health as an essential foundation for our spiritual endeavors. The positive vibrations generated during this Homa are believed to usher in a state of well-being, aligning our physical health with our spiritual aspirations.

Sudarshana Homa - 5th January 2024

As the sun's brilliance lights up the world, so too shall our inner radiance be kindled through the performance of Sudarshana Homa on the 5th of January 2024. By chanting the sacred mantras and igniting the divine fire, we aim to absorb the powerful Tejas (radiance) from Lord Sudarshana, akin to the brilliance of Aditya (the sun). This Homa serves as a transformative ritual, enhancing our spiritual glow and dispelling darkness from our lives.

Ayushya Homa - 6th January 2024

On the 6th of January 2024, we conclude our spiritual journey by invoking the blessings of Ayushya Devata through Ayushya Homa. This sacred ritual is designed to attract divine energies that promote longevity and overall well-being. By dedicating ourselves to the pursuit of good health, we ensure that our physical well-being harmonizes with our spiritual goals. May the divine vibrations from Ayushya Homa resonate within us, fostering a life of enduring vitality and spiritual fulfilment.
