Fertile Ground - Mansa Devi Laksmi Temple in Haridwar

In July 2007, we experimented with a new approach to the performance of our Laksmi yagyas. I took a group of 5 pandits to Mansa Devi Laksmi Peeth in Haridwar for the July Navaratri yagya. This temple is famous throughout northern India due to the extraordinary liveliness of Maha Laksmi's divine energy here. This aspect of Laksmi (Mansa Devi) is known as the fulfiller of desires.

As a result of this highly charged atmosphere, the effects of the yagya were extraordinary. The clients who sponsored this yagya reported outstanding benefits. The feedback was so inspiring that we have been encouraged to do a repeat performance for the Maha or Grand Navaratri Oct 12 -20. Once again, the success of this Oct program has been of the highest order.

"What a yagya. I think my whole physiology is changing... I think this must be the best yagya ever...The impacts keep on coming. I can feel the pundits coming and going. It is amazing...Can you book me a place for next year?" PR - Melbourne (more testimonials)

Due to the success of this approach
The Divali yagya program will be performed at Mansa Devi Laksmi Peeth in Haridwar
Traditionally, the divali yagya program runs for 3 days. The 2 days leading up to divali are also important: Hanuman Jayanti & Dhanvatari Jayanti.
Hanuman Jayanti (Nov 8) marks the appearance day of Lord Hanuman: hero of Ramayana, Rama's emissary, incarnation of Lord Shiva. Hanuman's life was a shining example of devotion and service to God, courage, strength, wisdom and effectiveness in action. Yagya performed on this day bestows clarity of mind, courage, perseverance, increase in the qualities of service & devotion to God, effectiveness in action and deliverance from great adversity

This is also one of the best times to perform yagyas to harmonize the influence of Saturn & Mars in our lives.
Dhanvatari Jayanti celebrates the day of Lord Dhanvantari who is said to have appeared at the churning of the Milk ocean hold the Nectar of Immortality. He is the devata of Ayur Ved - the Vedic holistic science of life.
This is the best day of the year to perform yagyas for health and overcoming disease.

In line with tradition this year's Divali yagya program will run for 3 days and will include the following program:

Nov 7 - Dhanvatari Yagya on Dhanvantari Jayanti
Nov 8 - Hanuman Yagya on Hanuman Jayanti
Nov 9 - Divali yagya - Day of Maha Laksmi

All yagyas will be performed at Mansa Devi Laksmi Temple in Haridwar
