Homa Sacred Fire Ceremony – (Free Public Program)

Hindu Temple Cultural Center
Thursday, July 4, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Homa is the most ancient and sacred ceremony in the Vedic tradition of Sanatana Dharma. It is a fire in which forms of the Divine are invoked through the power of mantra and profound spiritual intention. Special offerings are cast into the fire while Sanskrit mantras are chanted, and the combined energy of the fire, offerings, and mantras generates powerful spiritual vibrations that bless and purify everyone present, spreading peace and healing through the world.

  • Please turn all beepers and cell phones off or to blink/vibrate mode so that others are not disturbed.
