Krittika Homa – July 2nd

Aum Namah Shivaya

Today the moon resides in the Krittika Nakshatra, one of 27 lunar mansions in our Vedic sky. Krittika nakshatra, also known as the "Star of Fire," is represented by a group of seven stars known as the Pleiades and spans across the zodiac sign of Aries Taurus. Symbolized by a razor or a flame, Krittika is associated with determination, courage, and transformation. This nakshatra is ruled by the Sun and is considered auspicious for activities like initiation, starting new ventures, and personal growth. Lord Siva is sometimes known as "Krittivasan," which means "the one who resides in Krittika." This name signifies His connection to the Krittika nakshatra.

This nakshatra is significant for Iraivan Temple, and thus we hold a special homa each month on this day.

"God is with us always, even when we are unaware of that holy presence. He is His creation. It is an extension of Himself; and God is never apart from it nor limited by it." - Gurudeva
