Special Puja: Participate in a soul-soothing puja dedicated to Lord Ayyappa for blessings of strength, wisdom, and spiritual growth.
Bhajans and Devotional Music: Immerse yourself in the blissful vibrations of devotional songs that resonate with the divine energy of Lord Ayyappa.
Sponsorships, Participation, and Blessed Prasadam
If you would like to help sponsor the festival or participate in the puja yourself, please do consider from the available sponsorships. Sponsorships help to cover the cost of fruits, milk, ghee, flowers and garlands offered during the puja and abhishekam. In gratitude for your kind offering, we will give you blessed and energized prasadam from the event.
For sponsorship of Abhisekham or Archana, please reach out to our Temple Priest Sharma Ji at 630-247-0173 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For some sponsorships, we will include your name in the sankalpam chanted before the event. The sankalpam is a Sanskrit statement recited before any major puja or homam. When your name is recited in the sankalpam, it creates a subtle energetic bond between you and the puja or homam, bringing divine blessings to you and your family.
All sponsors receive blessed and energized prasadam from the event. Blessed prasadam usually includes small packets of kumkum and/or vibhuti as well as special items like a blessed thread, yajna raksha, or other holy items.
