Navagraha Abhishekam

It is with immense joy and reverence that we extend a warm invitation to you and your family to participate in the auspicious Navagraha Abhishekam, a sacred ceremony dedicated to the celestial forces governing our lives.

  • Navagraha Abhishekam: Engage in the ritualistic pouring of sacred substances on the Navagraha idols, seeking the divine blessings and benevolence of the nine celestial bodies.
  • Individual Graha Puja: Special pujas will be conducted for each of the Navagrahas, invoking their positive energies and mitigating any planetary influences.
  • Vedic Chants and Mantras: Immerse yourself in the divine vibrations created by the chanting of Vedic mantras, harmonizing the cosmic energies.
  • Prasadam Distribution: Conclude the ceremony with the distribution of blessed prasadam, symbolizing the divine grace received.

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 htcscipooja@gmail.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.
