Sankata Hara Chaturthi Pooja: Thursday, September 11th 2014 at 06:00 PM (Sahasra Muthu Archanai)

The upcoming Sankata Hara Chaturthi is right after Vinaya Chaturthi. With Her Holiness, Pujyasri Mathioli Saraswathy’s (Pujyasri Akka’s) belssings, 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 (pearls) to the lord (you can do the archanai yourselves). Any Additional pearls you’d like to sponsor are available in units of 10 and sponsorship for 10 pearls would be $25.

These pearls were carefully made under Sri Akka’s guidance. Either wear it as a pendant or string it and make jewelry. The beauty is, it will remain with you forever as a blessing from Pujya Sri Amma herself.

If you would like to sponsor pearls (muthu), please confirm by letting us know the number of pearls, the sankalpam details (name, gothram, and nakshatram), and your mailing address by responding to
