Starting the very first mantra as Sree Matre Namah – worshiping the mother, the thousand hymns end with Sree Lalithambikaye namah – respecting all aspects of Devi in between.
Ashram will be conducting 100 rounds of Lalitha Sahasranama homam (havan) on second Sunday of each month across 2022. Homam is the highest form of ritualistic worship as prescribed in Hindu traditions. Fourth round of Havans will be conducted on 10 April, 2022 starting at 9:00 AM at Ashram site – 17119 McLean Rd, Pearland, TX 77584, right across Meenakshi Temple in Pearland, TX (Houston).
All devotees desiring to participate in the homam will be provided appropriate training by the volunteers and be able to make the offerings directly after necessary familiarization of the rituals.
Each round of Homam (Havan) will take more than an hour. There will be small breaks after each round. Yajniks (those who are doing the Homam) are not allowed to leave in between the Homam. Once a round of Homam is started, one is expected to participate for that round which will take about an hour.
