Sri Chakra Yagams
As per the rituals when a temple is built a Sri Chakra Yanthra is placed under the idol which is to be installed in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. The construction of the Golden Temple for Sri Mahalakshmi in Sripuram in Thirumalaikdodi is almost complete. The Sri Chakra Yagam which started on April 5th in the Ghosala was conducted everyday until July 10th, 2006.
The Sri Chakra Yagams were performed by 15 Sivacharias from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Offerings of a silk saree, a gold coin and 108 kinds of articles were offered in the Yagam fire. Large gatherings of devotees attended the Yagams for a chance to take part in the offerings to the Yagam fire. There was also Vedaparayanam (chanting of the Vedas) every evening.
On the final day of the Sri Chakra Yagam, the entrance of the Ghosala was decorated with fragrant flowers and archanas were performed. The Sivacharias did Abishekam on the Sri Chakra and Kalasa Puja Abishekam was conducted on Sri Sakthi Amma. Amidst the chanting of the Sri Lalitha Sahasranamam and Vedaparayanam the Sri Chakra Yagam was solemnly blessed by the Divine hands of Sri Sakthi Amma.
