Sushmaanda homam for Purattaasi Ammavasai
A special Sushmaanda homam (Poosanikaai homam) will be held at Sri Danvantri Arogya Peedam, Walajapet, on September 23, 2014, on account of Purattaasi Ammavasai, Peedam founder Kayilai Gnanaguru Dr Sri Muralidhara Swamigal has announced.
The homam will be performed at 10 a.m., on September 23.
The performance of homam has not been directly specified in the Vedas, except in the case of Sushmaanda homam. The Yajur vedam specifies Sushmaanda homam. The conduct of homam and the message regarding the other homams had merely been passed on to the devotees by saints from time to time. Sushmaanda homam alone has a specific reference.
The conduct of Sushmaanda homam will rid one of various doshas including big sins, says Sri Muralidhara Swamigal. Sengalipuram
Anantharaman Diskshitar had pointed out that performing Sushmaanda homam a day before upanayam or marriage and other such functions would confer benefits. Also, the homam could be done any time a person feels he or she has committed a big sin.
This homam can be done in a simple way without spending much money. For instance, one or two priests would suffice. The wealthy can spend more money on dhiravyams and other necessities.
Performance of this homam would rid one of evil effects, enable blessings of parents, prevent indulgence in sinful acts again, and bring about mental peace. In the case of other homams, priests can carry out the functions on behalf of the devotee. In this homam, one has to carry out the homam directly as per the directive of the priest.
Sri Muralidhara Swamigal has urged devotees to take part in the homam in large numbers on September 23 and derive benefits
