Deepa Lamp Lighting Ritual
Friday 24 June, 2011

No Puja is observed without the initial lighting of a lamp. The lamp is symbolic of Gnana (knowledge), thus Sastra explains the light as both Guru (the dispeller of the darkness of ignorance), as well as Goddess Lakshmi (the embodiment of prosperity). By fostering the spiritual needs of the Hindu community, we offer you the opportunity of participating in the 1st Deepa Puja for the Opening.


Sri Ayyappa Seva Sungam affords you, the devotee the opportunity to sponsor a Kalasam or Sanku for Abisheka to our Swaami Ayyappa during our Shrine Sanctification rituals.

A total of 108 Kalasams & 108 Conches will be energised through 3 days of mantras, chanting, havan & other rituals.During Puja, the presiding deity is invoked in the Kalaasa through mantras. The water becomes charged with spiritual energy, & this energy is transferred when the water is poured on an image/person.

Consecration water will be poured over Ayyappas’ murthi, the balance of the water with Kalasam Pot or Conch will be given to the donors to be sprinkled at their homes. Should you be willing to be a part of this spiritually energising Pooja, please contact our members for more details. As the Kalaasa Pooja is restricted to 108, place your order soon.

We humbly ask you to benefit from this opportunity to both please the Lord as well as take home some of his blessings from participating in either/both of the Pujas’.
