(Cooked Rice Hydration Ceremony)

Food Feeding at Tiruvannamalai
(Shiva in the embodiment of fire at the Great Mountain Arunachala)
November 13, 2016 (IST)

Shiva as a Remover of Bad Karma

It is all in the timing and this upcoming Full Moon, November 13, 2016 IST has been identified as a prime time to remove your difficulties. By participating in the Rice-Abishekam ceremony to Shiva, it is believed that your previous birth karma can be cleansed, thereby, giving you a chance to move closer towards salvation.

During this once-a-year ceremony to Lord Shiva, the entire Shiva Lingam is covered with cooked rice. The life-sustaining energy and life-nourishing qualities of rice invoke the power of Lord Shiva to come into the Shiva Lingam, a symbol of His energy and power.

Performing the grand rice anointing ceremony to the Archetypal Being Shiva on this day can free you from problems as you express gratitude for what you have been given. By setting up a vibration of thankfulness within you will continue to attract all good things towards you. In this way, it helps to erase the negative karmas by you choosing to live in gratitude, rather than seeing and focusing on what you don’t have, and attracting more of that.


  • Anna Abishekham (cooked Rice Hydration Ceremony) on November 13, 2016
  • Food Feeding at Tiruvannamalai (Shiva in the embodiment of fire at the Great Mountain Arunachala) on November 13, 2016
  • Archana (Light and Sound Ceremony) to Annapoorni (Goddess of Nourishment)

Transform yourself with the karma-removing and life-sustaining energies of Shiva during the special power day of Anna Abishekam. The rituals will be performed on November 13, 2016. Propitiating Shiva during this special day will be very effective to access his pure, boundless energy to bring significant improvements in our lives.

What Will I Receive?

You will receive the Vibuti (sacred grey ash 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: Your Prasad will be shipped from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Please allow 2 – 4 weeks for delivery after the entire set of rituals is performed.
