Dhoomavati Mala Mantram Homam

Shri Ashutosh Jani, a visitor to this blog had graciously provided the Dhoomavati Mala Mantram. The audio for this as well as the lyrics in Sanskrit are posted at the following link: Dhoomavati Mala Mantram Audio .

The heart felt so happy after the development of the audio, that it was felt that a homam should be performed with a mandalam of this mantram. A mandalam comprises of 48 repetitions; with the addition of "Svaahaa" at the end to synchronize with the offering to Agni. The picture at the top of this post is a still photograph from the Homam. One might be able to visualize Sri Dhoomavati Devi in the Agni facing right ! In addition to this mantram, the Dhoomavati Gayatri Mantram was also included in the Homam. The Homam was performed in the backyard on a windy cold 5th of February 2018.

Two short video clips are presented below for the benefit of all !

In the following 1 minute 43 second clip, the Dhoomavati Mala Mantram is being chanted.

In the following 35 second clip, the Dhoomavati Gayatri Mantra is being chanted.

Thanks again to Shri Ashutosh Jani for this opportunity !

Om Sri Dhoomavati Devi Namo Namaha !
