Sahasra Linga Archana Pooja








The month of Karthika is very auspicious for worshiping Lord Shiva. To bestow blessings upon everyone in the community, Shri Sai Samadhi Mandir (Shri Dwarkamai Inc.) is organizing Sahasra Linga Archana Pooja in New England area on 04 November on the auspicious Karthika purnima day.

For the first time in New England region, a pooja will be performed on 1,116 Shiva linga. Shri Dwarkamai cordially invites all the devotees to join this Grand event and take blessings from Lord Shiva Parvati. 

Performing of Rudra Abhishekam

Most of the Lord Shiva temples perform the Ekadasa Rudra Abhishekam on Kartika Purnima while chanting the Rudra Chamakam and Rudra Namakam Eleven times. A cleansing ritual by reciting the Mahanyasam is performed before the Ekadasa Rudra Abhishekam.

As per the vedas and Vedic knowledge passed on through centuries, performing the Ekadasa Rudra Abhishekam on Karthika Purnima, will lead peace, happiness and prosperity in the community.

All are welcome to be part of chanting the Rudra Chamakam and Rudra Namakam.

As per the Hindu mythology, it was on Karthika Purnima that Lord Shiva killed the demon Tripurasura and hence the name Tripura Purnima or Tipurari Purnima.

Vaikuntha Chaturdashi is a sacred day which is observed a day before Kartik poornima. This day has a special significance as devotees get an opportunity to offer their prayers to both Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva together. While Lord Vishnu is worshipped at midnight (nishitha), Lord Shiva is worshipped at dawn (arunodaya). It is a belief that on this day both the deities had paid homage to each other; Lord Vishnu had offered tulsi leaves to Lord Shiva while Lord Shiva had offered Bael leaves to Lord Vishnu.

The prayers offered to the God, fasts done (only if health permits) and contributions made to charities, temples, during Kartik Purnima gives a devotee the same benefits as that of performing Ashwamedha Yagya. Below is the link for registration,
