Innersearch Asian Odyssey 2008 Retrospective
January 30th: We bring the last few photos of the homa ceremony in Tiruchendur during the 2008 Asian Odyssey.
Bodhinatha makes an offering.
Now an offering of honey.
After the homa Bodhinatha sprinkles blessed water on all of the kumbhas.
The priests and Bodhinatha chant together in preparation of carrying the kumbhas to the temple for the abhishegam to Lord Muruga.
Bodhinatha is handed the main kumbha.
Off to the temple we go!
Each Innersearcher has a kumbha in their hands, to be carried to Muruga’s feet.
A lively parade…
…filled with traditional music.
The grand abhishegam to Soorasamkara Moorthi, a form of Lord Muruga begins. Here milk is offered to Muruga.
You will see towards the middle of the photo a collection of 6 different types of flowers that will be offered during the puja.
