Sri Yantra Puja

By Bill Levacy

Sri Yantra Puja July 27 to July 29 2012With Pandit Sharma C.S. Samavedula, Komilla Sutton and Swami Sitaramananda

Puja is a worship ritual or ceremony. This year, we have the special opportunity of inviting a Vedic priest to perform a very special and elaborate, beautiful puja.

Donations, flowers and fruits are gratefully accepted. Please contact Swami Omkarananda at losangeles@sivananda.org or 310-822-9642 about contributing to the priest for the puja.

About Sri Yantra Puja:

Chakra pooja or Yantra pooja is the worship of a deity in a diagrammatic form. This type of worship exists in a lot of the other parts of the world also.

The worship of Devi in Shreechakra is regarded as the highest form of the Devi worship. Originally Lord Shiva gave 64 Chakras and their Mantras to the world, to attain various spiritual and material benefits. For his consort Devi he gave the Shreechakra and the highly coveted and the most powerful Shodashakshari mantra, which is the equivalent of all the other 64 put together.

The inner meaning and significance of the Puja will be explained in detail by Pandit Sharma C.S. Samavedula and the teachers. Please attend the Friday evening session with Swami Sitarmananda for the background and foundational information to understand the context.
