We are conducting a "Saamoohika Satya Narayana Vratam" on May 7, 2011 (Vaisakha Sukla Panchami).
We will make all the arrangements for 50 couples (or individuals) to perform the vratam. We will set the peetham and we will supply all the pooja materials. The only things participants will need to bring are - idols of Lakshmi and Narayana (or any idol), a kalasam (metal pot - see picture below), panchapatraa (or a metal glass and spoon - see picture below) and 45 coins (any coins). The Pooja will take approximately 4 hours. Prasadam will be served for lunch at the end.
Partcipation is FREE just like last year.

The Venue is Swaminarayan Temple, Lowell just like in March 2009. Also, just like in 2009, mantras will be chanted and instructions will be given by P.V.R. Narasimha Rao, while Swami Sathasivom, head priest of Kalikambal temple in Chennai, will lead the participants by offering pooja in the main peetham.
