SHRI LAKSHMI SASTHA MAHA YAGNAM 16-06-2017: Morning
The Karunyam of the Almighty, Sri Maha Sastha is immeasurable. Our gratitude to the Great Lord can be expressed in many ways. Lord Sastha has taken eight different incarntions in the world for the welfare of mankind.
Manikanda at Sabarimala, Poorna Pushkala Samedhan at Achankovil - each of his manifestations grant different aishwaryams to the devotees. One such form is Shri Lakshmi Sastha. It is a Tantric and Agamic form described in ancient texts and held as a secretive worship all these years.
This puja to Lakshmi Sastha is to be conducted at Coimbatore by our Sangam.
This form has the ability to destroy the hurdles of the devotees and also grant them Wealth, Prosperity and All pleasures of Life.
The very form is to grant all Aishwaryas to devotees. He has appointed the Nava Nidhis namely, Shanka Nidhi, Padma Nidhi, Mahapadma Nidhi,Sugachapa Nidhi,Makara Nidhi, Mukundha Nidhi,Neela Nidhi, Kundha Nidhi and Karva Nidhi to shower all the Aishwaryas to the devotees.
All these Navanidhis are worshipped first and then Karpaka Vruksha, Kamadhenu, Bilva and Tulasi Vrukshas are Worshipped. Karpaka Vruksham will give Lakshmi Kataksha, Kamadhenu grants all the prayers. Tulasi annihilates poverty and Bilva Vruksha pooja gives Ashta Aishwarya,
One who worships Lakshmi Sastha with gain Wealth, Health and long life, Happiness And a respectable position in the society. All Prosperity will be with them forever.
LAKSHARCHANA 16-06-2017 Evening
Bagawan Sastha is is worshipped with different kind of Flowers and in turn the Lord grants different boons for each flower offered to him. Offering of flowers at His feet is called Archana. Among the nine forms of devotion, Archanam is placed on the sixth position.
- Doing Archana with 108 Namas is Ashtothara Shatam
- Doing Archana with 300 Namas is Trishathi
- Doing Archana with 1008 Namas is Sahasranamam
- Doing Archana with One Lakh Namas is Laksharchana
Laksharchana pleases the Bagawan and at he same time gives a sense of Satisfaction to the devotee who does it. Its also a boon to a devotee who witnesses it.
This puja is done as a very special offering to earn the grace and Blessings of the Lord and each devotee is bestowed with all that is good.
SASTHA PREETHI 17-06-2017 Morning
Sasthapreethi is a time tested mode of worshipping Lord Dharmasastha in a very religious way by various samoohams and organizations in and around Kerala, and now in all parts of the country and abroad. The religious pooja is given more importance followed by Annadhanam.
The priest invokes Lord Ganapathi, Ambal and Dharma Sastha and His attendants (Parivara Devathas) on tall brass lamps decorated tastefully.
After the detailed puja, neivedyam and deeparadhana followed by mantrapushpam a detailed Veda Parayanam is made. After appeasing the Lord with Vedha gosham, the traditional Sastha paattu (Varavu Paattu – inviting Songs) songs are sung.
While singing, the traditional upasakas or Sthanakaras of the respective deities gets into a trance and gets the supreme power invoked within them. In General Sastha, Chellapillai, Yakshi and Boothathan are the deities who are invited. These Sthanikas are offered respect by the devotees and upacharas are done to them. They are seated on the wooden plank and are decorated with garland and sandal paste.
They bless the devotees with prasadam and convey the deity's satisfaction in the conduct of the Sasthapreethi. People prostrate before him, get blessed and receive Vibhoothi as prasadam.
Very rarely a Yajna of this significance and magnitude can be witnessed and the opportunity for the people to actually participate in the worship. It is also done particularly for the sake of washing away ones sins and afflictions, for bringing peace, prosperity and family happiness.
So, the Bhakthas who are taking part in this magnificent event can be assured of obtaining the limitless blessings of Sri MahaSastha and getting all their prayers fulfilled.
May Lord Hariharaputra be with you always, giving you the best of everything.
