Makar Sankranti Yajna 2015
Ganapati Homa, Navgraha Homa, Nine Chandika Homa
Baba Rampuri Dhuni, Assagao, Goa, India
Shri Mahant Baba Rampuri and Shri Mahant Mangalanand Puri presented a 3 day Chandika Yajna on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti,
January 14-16, 2015.
We were indeed fortunate to have the sacred rites and yajna performed by the
esteemed purohits from the Shakti Pith of Shri Mookambika Maa in Kollur, Karnataka.
During Makar Sankranti, the Sun transits into Makar Rashi & returns to its Northern Path,
bringing light back to the world. This cosmic event is brought into our individual lives
by our observances of it. The goal is to bring light, health, happiness, and prosperity
into our lives.
We concluded the yajna with a bhandara, a feast, to which all were invited.
