Sri Durga Lakshmi Saraswathi Devi Vishesha Laksha Kumkumarchana Pooja
August 20 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
On the auspicious occasion of Sravana Maasa, the Hindu Temple (HTCSCI) will hold a special event for prosperity of devotees and the temple. We’ll be conducting a group Sri Durga Lakshmi Saraswathi Lalitha Sahasranama Laksha Kumkumarchana, and we invite all devotees to come together and offer your sincere prayers for the pooja.
The Sahasranama Laksha Kumkumarchana will start at 11:30 AM and continue until 1:30 PM.
All are welcome to come and chant Sahasranama and/or perform kumkumarchana during the parayanam. If you plan to chant Sahasranama, please reach out to either Sharma Ji (630-247-0173) or Jyothi Ji (217-597-1665) to reserve your spot. All the volunteers need to be at the temple by 10:50 am on the day of the event.
This is a divine opportunity to receive the blessings of Sri Devi’s — a uniquely auspicious day full of golden vibrations.
There is no charge to perform kumkumarchana, but for those who would like to do a special Kumkumarchana sponsorship, please reach out to one of the temple trustee. All proceeds from these sponsorships will go towards the Temple development.

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 email@example.com.
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.
