Namaste to all,

During this ganesh navratri, we will perform daily ganesha tarpanam, gakaara sahasranama archana (ganesha likes to be offered tarpanam with specific chantings that contain the moola mantra), and he also likes to be offered archana with 1,008 of his that start with “ga”.

This is an auspicious time to register for and sponsor this puja and receive the blessings of lord ganesha for you and your family. During one of these Five days, we will be offering 1,008 modaka homa as well to lord ganesha. Last but not least, lord ganesha will be decorated 3 times with a different alankaram.
