Maha Lakshmi Homa
The Mahalakshmi Homaa is performed to invoke the energy signified by Lakshmi. Lakshmi symbolizes the energy of abundance, and all the different types of Wealth that we experience in our life (not just material or monetary). Traditionally there are eight types of wealth mentioned in the vedic tradition: Adi Lakshmi (the original Lakshmi), Dhana Lakshmi (abundance of money and gold), Dhanya Lakshmi (agricultural abundance), Gaja Lakshmi (abundance of power and royalty), Santana Lakshmi (abundance of offspring), Vira Lakshmi (abundance of strenght and valour), Vijaya Lakshmi (abundance of all types of victory) and Vidya Lakshmi (abundance of knowledge and wisdom). This Homa invokes and enhances these different types of wealth in our daily life and brings abundance. This Homa is also usually performed at the start of any business venture or undertaking, for abundance of wealth.
Importance of Sankalpa
Sankalpa is derived from two words ‘SAT’ (which means Guna) and ‘KALPANA’ (which means imagination). So Sankalpa means a good intention. So how does a sankalpa work?? It’s a simple two step process:
Identifying our intention.
Surrendering it to the Divine
During the pujas we bring the mind from the vastness of time and space to HERE NOW. With mind in present moment we identifying our intention and then we take flower and rice in our hand and drop it with water; thus surrendering it to the divine. The Vedic Mantras which are chanted are also very important part of the process. As every sound has a effect on our being; the ancient Rishis figured out which sound created what impact on brain and that is how the Mantras were created. The mantras chanted during the puja is the process of making the sankalpa manifest.
Just as Sunlight is present everywhere, but when we keep it under a magnifying glass it creates fire.
Sankalpa is like a magnifying glass. Attending the puja’s is definitely very beneficial, but taking a sankalpa makes it more powerful. The Choice is yours.
Taking sankalpa during this Diwali will help in manifestation of good intentions.
