Sri Somesvara Temple Received Hanuman Bell Gift

At the Kumbhabhishekam of the Sri Somesvara Siva Temple in the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, Kulapati Easan Katir presents a gift from Satguru Bodhinatha to the temple’s founder, Dr. Michael Mamas. It is a heavy brass Hanuman bell, handcrafted in Hardwar, India. The pujari spontaneously chants a prayer to Hanuman Ji and says they will use it every day during the temple pujas.

The sanctum of the temple was carved in India. The five-day Kumbhabhishekam was conducted by 9 priests. The Siva temple is the centerpiece of a 300-acre Vastu-planned community.
