This is how we celebrated Janmashtami 2014 this year.
Wish you all a happy Dassara.The Goddess Durga Devi kept during last year Dassara festival in the Bengali Temple,Goregaon, Mumbai is attached h/w.Centre is Durga Devi.Both the side Goddess Lakshmi and Saraswathi.Extreme both side r God Ganesh and Karthikeyan(Murugan).
This is the finished kalam and the centre one is called as Ashta dalam(eight petals of Lotus).The square portion is the main kalam and the outer portions are decorated like a feather or like a peedam.
This shows the making of the Padmam or Kalam in which the lamp is placed and the pooja is performed.
Hi friends ....Last week we had our annual Bhagavathy sevai at our home on friday...I am sharing with with you all some important pictures...Please have a view.
This Pooja is very famous and done on a daily basis in temples in the month of Aadi or Karkadakam(Malayalam month). It can be done on other days also. By the grace of Bhagavathy I am performing this pooja in aadi maasam for the last six years and I have the privilege to get it done on Fridays(as they are special to Devi). The first photo to start with displays some of the flowers which I had bought for the pooja.
This photo was taken during vinayagar chaturti and gowri pooja in my home.
On first. we have carried out Satyanarayana pooja at my residence. Downloading the picture so that Satyanayana god will bless all my ikolam members(friends) and their family members.
HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL THE MEMBERS.
This is the snap of the laxmi pooja I had done for Diwali evening!
