Chandi Homa is no ordinary ritual. As she is the fierce form of the Supreme Primordial Goddess, expert priests with years of experience in handling such a complex and powerful homa must perform it with utmost reverence.
The scriptures note the following benefits that the powerful Chandi Homa can bestow:
Dr. Pillai Selects Desire-Fulfilling Powerspot for Chandi Homa
For our special December Grand 2-Day, 10-Priest Chandi ceremonies, Dr. Pillai has selected a special Goddess energy Vortex where the presiding deity of the temple manifested as three different Goddesses named Iccha Shakti (Goddess who fulfills your desires), Jnana Shakti (Goddess who grants knowledge) and Kriya Shakti (Goddess who the power to act).
Each of these three goddesses holds an Akshaya Patra (inexhaustible vessel which symbolizes non-depleting wealth), and they can fulfill your desires. These goddesses can also remove obstacles that are blocking the manifestation of your desires.
What will I receive?
You will receive the sacred grey ash powder from the homa and kum-kum (Red Vermillion Powder), which will be blessed in the rituals. Keep this on your meditation altar and wear it on your forehead during meditation or at other times to expand the Divine blessings into your life.
Dr. Pillai explains this:
The ritual is the carbonization of thoughts. Carbon is our information bearing atoms. The carbon residue (ash) given out as Prasad is to be placed on the third eye area of the participants and carries the blessings of the archetypes invoked.
Please Note: The shipment of your prasad starts from Chennai, Tamil Nadu a week after the entire set of rituals is performed. For international shipping, please allow 2 – 4 weeks for delivery.
A Chandi Homa is not an ordinary fire ritual and has to be performed by expert priests with years of experience in handling such a complex and powerful homa. Chandi homa will help one become free from evil eyes, curses, obstacles and also be blessed with long-lasting good health, wealth and prosperity.
Goddess Durga, the chief deity of this Homa, will gift you with the power to balance your passion & dispassion and indulgence & denial. You will be able to manifest your true divine self that unites selfishness and selflessness. Devotees who worship Goddess Durga will find themselves overflowing with desires.
Individual Homa will be performed at AstroVed Fire Lab and Remedy Center.
