Maha Chandi Homam March 2018

Attempt is made to perform one Maha Chandi Homam every month at home. This time, when attending the Maha Chandi Homam being performed at the Para Shakthi temple in Michigan on March 18, it was observed that during the Navarna Mantra oblations, the Rtvig had prefixed one by one all the Aksharas “Am Aam In IIm Um Uum Kam Kham Cham Chcham”, etc to the main mantra. Hence it would be "Om Kam Om Aim Hreem Kleem Chaamundaayai Vichche Svaha", "Om Kham Om Aim Hreem Kleem Chaamundaayai Vichche Svaha" and so on. This created a mesmerizing effect on the psyche and really wanted to incorporate this method at home.
Hence the March event was scheduled and performed on the 24th of the month which fell on a Saturday. It really came out well. A short less than three minute video clip is at the top of this post. Srimathy took the video. The clip is from Chapter 1 of Durga Sapthashathi that deals with the slaying of Asuras Madhu and Kaitabha; Maha Kaali is the Devata.

Incidentally, during the Homam, towards the last hour, a spider came and sat on a box very near the Homa Kundam. This is in the first photo below; note it gets very hot near that vicinity; didn’t want the spider to get hurt and yet didn’t want to disturb just in case He/She was a Divine Visitor; so kept going forward with the ritual, but stopped at the appropriate time and took a photo. Then when the Homam almost came to completion, the spider simply walked away !! This is shown in the second photo below.

Notice the spider.

Notice spider has gone. How did He/She know the completion of the ritual? Only He/She knows!

Hope everyone enjoys !

Om Namaschandikaayai !!
