The divine cosmic energy is invoked in the homa fire through prayer and visualization. The fire is energized by the chanting of mantras, allowing the energy to spiral upward and outward into the surrounding environment. Performing a homa cleanses and rejuvenates the environment by allowing an abundant inflow of prana (life-force) into the atmosphere.
Participating in this ritual brings tremendous harmony amongst people and natural environment. This very kalasha will be kept along with 108 others to be energized in the Rudra Homa at the Kumbh Mela.
Through visualization or meditation we connect to the sacred ‘akasha shakti’ or ether or space. From ether, through verbalization of mantras the air around us is sanctified, through the fire ritual of the homa we awaken the inner fire within us and by worshipping the water in the kalasha or pot, we make a sacred connection to the water element. Finally the cosmic energy is worshipped in the bhimba or the deity which presides over the Homa ritual.
Sponsor a Kalasha (pot) for your family, and participate in the grand procession carrying the kalasha on the day of Kumbh Mela. Personally experience the phenomenal energy that the Rudra Homa will be heralding in on Saturday, 24th of Oct 2015, starting at 2PM.
Sponsorship is $108 per family.
Maha Aarti is a vedic ritual done to worship Goddess Ganga in which light of 51 or 101 wicks soaked in oil or ghee and camphor is offered to Goddess Godavari. Witnessing the Maha Aarti gives peace of mind, brings prosperity and happiness to the family. River Godavari is personified as the goddess giving moksha and washing away all sins of the devotees.
