Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Vratam and Kartika Purnima Rudrabhisekham, on Sunday, Nov 13th , 2016

Maine Hindu Temple (MHT) is hosting one of the most commonly performed ritualistic prayers by Hindu are the Satyanarayan Vratam which is a worship of the Lord Satyanarayan and the embodiment of eternal truth. Poojari Pradeep Sharma from Boston will be performing Sri Satyanarayana Swamy Vratam and Kartika Purnima Rudrabhisekham, on Sunday, Nov 13th , 2016

The Spiritual Significance of Satyarayan Vratam : Satya means Truth and Narayan mean the one that abides in everything and everybody. The vratam and worship of Satyanarayan who is a form of the Lord Vishnu, suggests that to overcome problems and difficulties in life caused either due to deeds of previous birth or similar factors can be overcome by worshipping the Lord of Truth. Devoting time to the Truth and worshipping is a way of being truthful to oneself and being truthful to others. The more honest and truthful, we come, the better we can worship Lord Narayan in ourselves as well as others.

Kartika Purnima Rudrabhisekham is an excellent Pooja for all round Shanti and success in all undertakings. Lord Shiva has eleven forms of Rudra and during the Rudrabhisekham all the eleven Rudras are worshiped. The Pooja is performed with the prescribed ingredients, Japas repeated and ends with Poornahuti and Shanti paath.
