This puja takes place on December 26th
On Purnima, a very special Chandi Homa will be performed at Manidweepa in India. Chandi Homa is a sacred fire prayer performed to invoke the blessings of Goddess Chandi – the fierce and powerful form of Goddess Shakti. She is the primeval energy and is responsible for the creation, sustenance, and destruction of this entire universe. She is hailed as the sum total of the energies of all lives in this universe. According to the sacred text, Devi Mahatmyam, she is portrayed with eighteen arms, each holding a different weapon to ward off all the negativities and guard her beloved devotees.
Goddess Chandi is an embodiment of power and all the divine forces, who safeguards you from evil forces and perfects your mind and body. By worshiping the Universal Mother through this sacred fire prayer, you can remove negative forces such as evil eye, curses, and obstacles and be bestowed with lasting health, wealth and prosperity.

Special Instructions for Sponsorship Orders
Before each homam or puja is performed,, a “sankalpa” is recited in Sanskrit, a divinely powerful language. Sankalpa is a special process involving Vedic incantations that energetically connect you and your family directly to any ritual. When names 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 THREE 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. Use ‘Saha Kutumbasya’ if you have more than three sankalpa names.
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 during COVID-19 restrictions.
