Sri Sudharshana Homam and Pooja - performed by Sri Ramaswamy Bhattar in Cincinnati, OH. We setup the table and the kalashas and other arrangements were made previous day. It was nice to have elders (devotee parents) to be present for the event. Entire family supported well for the pooja with full devotion - even the kids were productive for the pooja. May the Lord bless the family and others who witnessed the pooja with wealth, prosperity, peace and much more. Please take a look at the pictures from the event.
After performing Sri Bhagavathi Seva in Tampa, FL - I had a chance to perform this pooja here in Indy. The devotees were enjoyed the pooja with full devotion and bhakthi - may the GOD bless this family and the devotees who atended this pooja.
In Bhagavathi Seva, one can see the principles of Thanthra in a simplified form. The ‘Padmam’ which is used as a seat for the Devi is a symbolic representation of the Brahmanda (Universe). Five colors, which are the symbols of ‘Panchabhootas’ (Five elements), are used to make the Padmam. Avahana of the Devi (Invocation) is the simplified version of the Pratishta (Installation).
