Maha Ganapathi Homam

Lord Ganesha or Vinayaka is the first deity of our Hindu Dharma. He is the destroyer of all obstacles and protector of the righteous.All impediments can be overcome by lighting a Ghee lamp for Maha Ganapathi in a temple daily.

In our trust, Sri Maha Ganapathi Homam is performed as a preliminary ritual in all major pujas like Durga Shulini Homam, Maha Nava Chandi Homam, Maha Sudarshana Homam etc.

Lord Vallabha Maha Ganapathi is invoked in a kalasha as well as in the Agni. Ganapathy Atharvana Seersha Upanishad is  chanted by vedic  priests.Sri Maha Ganapathi Homam is performed by chanting the Maha Ganapathi Moola mantra along with offering of various dravyas like Modakams,Sugarcane pieces,Ghee,Panchamrutam etc.  into the vedic sacrificial fire. Maha Ganapathy Gayathri is also chanted. Sree Sukhta Maha Lakshmi  Homam is also  performed at the end and  Poornahuti is offered. Slokas like Sri Ganesa Pancharatnam are also chanted.

On each Ganesh  Chaturthi, Maha  Ganapathi Moola Mantra  Homam is performed  with chanting of Moola  mantra five thousand  times along with the  offering of one  thousand and eight  modaks in the agni.  As a financial year  commences from April , the spiritual year of our  Guru Parampara commences from  Vinayak Chaturthi. The  search for inner peace  and happiness is the  goal of a sincere  spiritual  seeker. So it is  very relevant that the  spiritual year is started with a Pooja to Lord Ganesh who is the remover of all obstacles.
