Jai Guru Hanuman Karya Siddhi Hanuman-ji,  

 

Last month the Hanuman Temple celebrated Maha Shivaratri by remaining open through the night.  The program included 
Mahanyasa Purvaka Ekadasha Rudrabhisheka, a special Bilva archana to Lord Shiva followed by continuous bhajans and songs in praise of Lord Shiva until 5am in the morning.  All the devotees present were able to personally perform abhisheka to Lord Shiva - an opportunity available only on Maha Shivaratri.

 

The Temple's  Bala Datta kids also participated by singing the Shiva Manasa puja and Lingastikam before the Lord.  While the children were singing, some of the fruits decorating Lord Hanuman rolled off the altar and stopped before the performing kids.  Moved by their devotion, Lord Hanuman seemed to be showering His blessings upon the young performers.  Om Namah Shivaya!

Holi Celebrations 
Festival of Long ago
 

The festival of Holi is mentioned in the Vedas and Puranas such as Narad Purana and Bhavishya Purana.  It is also referenced in the sculptures on walls of old temples. A 16th century panel sculpted in a temple at Hampi, capital of Vijayanagar, shows a joyous scene of Holi. 

  

The literal meaning of the word 'Holi' is 'burning'. There are various legends to explain the meaning of this word, most prominent of all is the legend associated with demon king Hiranyakashyapa.

 

Hiranyakashyapa wanted everybody in his kingdom to worship only him. To his great disappointment, his  son, Prahalada became an ardent devotee of Lord Narayana.

 

Hiranyakashyapa told his sister, Holika to enter a blazing fire with Prahlad in her lap. Holika had a boon that fire would not harm her. However, she was not aware that the boon worked only if she entered the fire alone. While Holika perished in the fire, Prahalada emerged unharmed due to his devout faith in God.

 

The Holi festival, therefore, celebrates the victory of good over evil and also the triumph of devotion. 


Sri Rama Navami Celebrations
Sita Rama Kalyana Mahotsav

 

 

Please join the 
Kayra Siddhi Hanuman Temple 
on the special occasion of 
Sri Rama Namavi &
Sita Rama Kalyana Mahotsav
on March 31 at 5:30pm 
 
Sri Rama Navami is the sacred birthday of Lord Rama. Sita Rama Kalyana  represents the marriage of Manas (mind) and Buddhi (intellect).  When Manas and Buddhi marry, the result will be bliss and Brahma Loka according to Sri Swamiji.  Our body too has an inner Ramayana.  Witnessing this marriage today is symbolic of our own inner battle of good over bad. 
 
Be sure to visit the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple on the sacred occasion of Sri Rama Navami to gain the blessing of Lord Ram, Devi Sita and Lord Hanuman.

Sri Swamiji Says 
 Divine Guidance for Devotees

One should feel the presence of the Lord in all creatures. Purity of heart and wisdom cannot be achieved as long as a man does not see the Lord in every one. Universal love develops in a man who sees the Lord in all and serves them. That is the only way to attain soul-progress. By viewing the fellow beings as Divine and serving them with humility a man grows in divinity.

So, be what you are. Do not ponder over limitations and bad experiences of yesterday. Be engaged while experiencing both happiness and distress, in prayers to God. Awaken the God who is right within you through constant prayers and meditation instead of brooding over your weakness. You are a child of God who is Great, therefore you should also feel and become Great.
