Ayyappa Puja

Krishnan Namboodiri

Join us as we celebrate Lord Ayyappa with a puja conducted by the ashram’s Tantric priest, Krishnan Namboodiri. Lord Ayyappa, the protector of Dharma, was born of the union of Mohini (the female form of Lord Vishnu) and Lord Siva, and is also known as Mahashastha and Dharmashastha. The Hindi word shastha means “one who controls or rules over the whole world.” Lord Ayyappa helps to destroy negative tendencies and maintains the pure sattvic nature of the seeker. Worshipping him is said to bring contentment and spiritual advancement. He protects our spiritual wealth and power by maintaining the thought of godliness, destroying impure thoughts, and bestowing clarity.

Offered as 1 satsang

Krishnan Namboodiri is a Tantric priest from South India, trained in the classical tradition of mantras (sacred sounds), pujas (prayer ceremonies), homas (fire rituals), and yantras (sacred geometric designs). He performs many daily and special rituals for the ashram.
