Sankata Hara Chaturthi Pooja – Thursday, 9/11
Upcoming Sankata Hara Chaturthi is right after Vinaya Chaturthi. With the blessings of Her Holiness, Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy (Pujyasri Akka), we will have a Sahasra Muthu (pearls) Archanai (1008) to Lord Ganesha (the Ganesha was given to all of us by Pujyasri Akka). Performing the Sankata Hara Chaturthi Pooja is auspicious.

You can sponsor any number of pearls beginning from $31.00 (10 pearls). Pujyasri Akka has given us the unique opportunity to offer the muthus to the lord ourselves (you can do the archanai yourselves).You can sponsor any number of pearls; any additional pearls are available in units of 10 and sponsorship for 10 pearls are $25.

These pearls were carefully made under Sri Akka’s guidance. You can either wear them as a pendant or string them together and make jewelry. The beauty will remain with you forever as a blessing from Pujya Sri Amma herself.

If you would like to sponsor the mutha, please confirm by letting us know the number of pearls by responding to The sankalpam details (name, gothram, and nakshatram) can be sent to .
