Mahalaya 2021

Mahalaya Shraaddha at Hariharananda Gurukulam, Sri Jagannatha Puri

Posted On : September 14th, 2021   To : Upcoming Events


Jai Guru, Jai Jagannath,

With the blessings of God and Gurus, we are planning to organize Mahalaya Shraaddha ceremony at Hariharananda Gurukulam, Sri Jagannatha Puri. Shraaddha is an act of expressing deep respect and gratitude towards our departed ancestors. It also aids the departed soul in its onward journey. Shraaddha performed on Mahalaya Amavasya invokes special blessings to all deceased. If performed in holy places like Sri Jagannatha Puri and in Sadhguru Peetha like Hariharananda Gurukulam (Sri Guru Govinda Go peetha), it helps the departed soul move towards attaining liberation.

After observance of Mahalaya last year, disciples have been approaching us with shraaddha request for some time for the coming Mahalaya paksha (fortnight). Shraaddha shall be held on  Mahalaya Amavasya, 6th Oct 2021.
