Abhishekam is done every day to the deities of Srinivasa Temple. On the full moon, our regular morning prayer service is extended to include a special Maha Abhishekam on the large deities on the main altar followed by a Yagna. The whole event lasts about three hours. While the curtains are closed, and the deities are being dressed, you will hear satsangs on divine scriptures, enjoy singing and dancing to kirtans and feel the spirit of the community.
Abhishekam is a beautiful bathing ritual where five different substances are poured onto the deity. These substances symbolise the five elements of our physical nature and our lower nature emotional qualities. Through the Grace of the deities, these elements, our five senses and the mind are purified and transformed in a positive way.
