Maha Sasthru Sahasranama Maha Yagnam 15-06-2018

The Karunyam of the Almighty, Sri Maha Sastha is immeasurable. Puja and Homa is the best way of worshiping the Lord. Sahasranamam denotes reciting the thousand divine names of Lord Maha Sastha. Mere telling of His name once gives all that is needed for a human life, then imagine what thousands can bring upon !

The Maha Yagnam begins with Laksha Archana with ten different flowers. Then Homa is performed by chanting every Nama of the Maha Sasthru Sahasranama Mantra. For Each Nama Ten different items as suggested by the Sahasranama text, is offered. Some of them are Ghee, Gudannam(Sakkarai Pongal), Gruthannam(Ven Pongal), Payasam, Mashaaboopam(Ulundhu vadai), Tilaaboopam(Ellurundai), Maduparkam etc. Poornahuti is offered finally in a grand manner.

Maha Sasthru Sahsranama calls the Lord as "Homa Santhushta Maanasaya Nama:" - One who gets pleased with Homa. Worshipping Lord Maha Sastha with homa will grant Wealth, Health, Happiness and long life. All Prosperity will be with them forever.

Kovai-yil Sabarimalai 16-06-2018

The constant ringing of the Sharana Gosham ,the Aroma of the Sandal Paste and the nector like aravana payasam,devotees eyes focussing the Holy 18 steps, Ever mesmerising Harivarasanam. Tingling all our Sensories to the most merciful Lord.

Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa !

This time, people in Coimbatore are immensely blessed to witness, the replica of Sabarimala being created for Sastha Preethi Mahothsavam of Shri Maha Sasthru Seva Sangam as Kovai-yil Sabarimalai.

All Poojas are conducted by Ezhikkode Mana Brahmashri Sashi Namboothiri, Former  Melshanthi of Sabarimalai and Guruvayur.

Right from Nada Opening, Ganapathi Homam in the morning to Padipuja and Harivarasanam in the Night all Pujas done at Sabarimala can be witnessed at Coimbatore with the same fervor and Pristine Sanctity.

It will be a  soul-stirring experience for all those who have witnessed and who are yet to witness the pujas at Sabarimala Sannidhanam.

SASTHA PREETHI 17-06-2018 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 Dharma Sastha and His Parivara Devathas on lamps decorated tastefully.  After the detailed puja, 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 Puja of this significance and magnitude can be witnessed and the opportunity for the people to actually participate in the worship. 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.
