    Skanda shashti celebrations

    Skanda Shashti an important festival for devotees of Lord Muruga, begins the day after Diwali. It is observed for 6 days, ending on Shashti. Skanda Shashti is observed to celebrate the victory of good over evil. Lord Subramanya was conceived from the fiery seed of Lord Shiva, and was brought up as six babies by kanyas belonging to the Karthika star. Devi Parvati gathered the six babies into one as ‘Shanmukha’ – ‘the Six faced God’. Shanmukha, as the commander of the Devas, waged a deadly war with the asuras tormenting humankind for 6 days and annihilated Soorapadman on Shashti.

    To participate in this Celebrations  – SKANDA SHASTI – Navagraha Building
    To Participate in Sri Subramanya Swamy Kalyanam – KALYANAM 6:30 pm – Sri Venkateswara Temple
    At the temple, special abishekam, archana and bhajans will be performed every day. Kanda Shashti Kavacham, a very powerful hymn will be recited all days. The word ‘Kavacham’ means ‘ armour’. The hymn serves as an armour to the devotees against all negativities that ail humankind. It is stated in the Hymn itself and believed that any devotee who faithfully recites this hymn 36 times in a day, will get the blessings of all devas residing in the eight directions, have the favor of all near and dear, and the nine planets.

  • Ashtothara Sata Sahasranama Tulasi Archana to Lord Venkateswara – Oct 31
    All day
    10/31/2017


    Performing puja with Tulasi leaves is very auspicious during Karhtika Masa. Sahasranama Archana will be done by offering Tulasi leaves to Lord Venkateshwara on Thursday during this holy month.
    The Tulasi plant or tree is very sacred to Lord Vishnu and His devotees. The leaves are offered to The Lord as garlands and in archana. His devotees wear beads made from tulasi plant around their neck an also use it as Japa Mala. In Srimad Bagavatham it is stated thus, ‘ The fragrant Mandara, Kunda, Kurabaka, Utpala, Campaka, Arna, Punnaga, Nagakesara, Bakula, Lily, and Parijata, all agree that the Tulsi plant (the basil plant, the lord adorns Himself with and ) which in the form of a garland is appreciated (by Him) for her smell, best of them all honors the good spirit of renunciation out there. [ Quoted from Srimad Bhagavatam.org]. Tulasi always stays with the Lord in Her form as either a garland, or at His feet, as leaves.
    In the Skanda Purana it is stated that The Tulasi plant can heal all our sinful activities and by merely seeing, touching the Tulasi plant, we can be relieved from our diseases.
    Just as the water form the ganges is sacred, water with Tulasi leaves in it is Holy for all devotees of Lord Balaji.
