Rasi Mandala Kubera Padi: Ashtalakshmi Coin and Akshatas

The "Dosha Nivarana Rasi Mandala Puja" is a rare, powerful and elaborate puja in which all the navagrahas (planets) and nakshatras (stars and constellations) are invoked and worshipped, along with other powerful divine forces and the supreme Lord Siva and Divine Mother. This puja aids in removing doshas and blockages related to one's birth chart, helping us to attain health, peace, true prosperity, and spiritual progress.

All are welcome to attend and receive the divine blessings. For those who would like to be included in the sankalpam and receive blessed prasadam, sponsorships are available. All sponsors will be included in the sankalpam and will receive kumkum, vibhuti and blessed thread. Please read below for additional details.

Rasi Mandala Puja Ashtalakshmi Coin and Akshatas Sponsorship
Sponsors will also receive a blessed and energized gold-plated Ashtalakshmi coin, as well as akshatas in a brass measuring cup (padi). The cup measures 2 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide.

The Sanskrit word “akshata” means “unbroken” or “whole” and symbolizes the fullness and auspiciousness of Mahalakshmi Devi. Made by combining uncooked whole rice grains with turmeric and a pinch of ghee, akshatas attract and retain the vibrations of the deity worshipped when placed or used in puja.  Following the puja, the padi may be placed in the home altar to energize the entire home. Alternatively the akshatas may be cooked and consumed. Recipes will also be provided with this sponsorship.
