Sahasranama Archanai

To achieve prosperity and wisdom and to attain the eternal bliss from God, we perform Archanai (prayer/pooja) in the temple. The Archanai is chanting the names and glory of God with devotion. When the Archanai contains 108 respected names of God, it is called the ASHTOTHRA SATHAM. When it contains 1008 names, the Archanai is called the SAHASRANANAM. As our resources (time and material) permit, when we do Archanai with love, devotion and concentration, we can fulfill our wishes and obtain the God's grace and bliss.

The above mentioned Jebam is performed with Lord Vinayagar’s special “Moola-Manthira Ganapathy Yekashura Manthiram”. When the Jebam is performed with dedication and thiraviyangal (sacred waters) that is liked by Lord Vinayagar, we are blessed by him with good health, peace and prosperity.
