Sri Sudarsana Jayanthi is scheduled to be celebrated at Sri Balaji Mandir, Dombivli, on July 6, 2014 (Sunday), with the paripoorna anugraham of Srimath Sri Srimushnam Andavan. As part of the utsavam, Japam, Maha Sudarshana Homam and Thirumanjanam will be performed to Utsavar Sri Sudarshanar.
The Sudarshana Chakram is the mighty weapon of Lord Sriman Narayana and has many auspicious attributes associated with it. Swami Desikan most eloquently summarizes the characteristics of the mighty Chakram in both the Sudarshana Ashtakam as well as the Shodasayudha Stotram. The mighty Jwala is the aspect of Jwala Nrisimhar who destroyed Hiranyakashipu and therefore, is resident in the Sudarshana Chakram. The Sudarshana Chakram has healing characteristics. Legend has it that Swami Desikan composed the Sudarshana Astakam to help the people of a village stricken by the plague epidemic. As soon as Swami Desikan finished his composition, the epidemic got eradicated. Every month on the day of Chitra Nakshatram, Sri Sudarshana Homam and Thirumanjanam to Sri Sudharshana Chakrathazhwar are being performed at our Mandir.
In this mundane life of Mumbai where devotees are not able to perform any spiritual activities at their dwellings, this will be a great opportunity to participate and take the blessings of Sri Sudarshanar on His Jayanthi day. The charges for the same are:
Sri Sudharshana Homam Rs.3000/-
Thirumanjanam / Abhishekam Rs.1500/-
Sankalpam Rs. 250/-
Astikas in and around the area may make it convenient to participate in the utsavam.For details, kindly contact the temple office.
