Devotees of the Shri Surya Narayan Mandir in Orlando recently celebrated Maha Shivratri in grand style. Deciding that 24 hours was not enough time to celebrate the glories of Bhagvan Shiva, the members of the Mandir sponsored a four session yagna. The yagna commenced on Thursday, March 7th and concluded on Sunday, March 10th. The Vyasji for the yagna was none other than Pt. Vishnu Hardowar, Spiritual Leader of the Orlando Mandir. The audience listened each night as our Vyasji expounded upon the glories of Lord Shiva as described in the Maha Shiva Puran. On Shivratri night, all devotees were given an opportunity to offer Avishekam on the Lingam of Bhagvan Shiva. Many devotees remained at the Mandir all night where they offered Avishekam and chanted the glories of Bhagvan Shiva. The yagna was a grand success. Special thanks to all members of the Surya Mandir for their help and participation in making this yagna such a success. Special thanks as well to the families who sponsored the yagna and the devotees who worked tirelessly to prepare for the yagna. We look forward to celebrating Maha Shivratri next year, Jai Sita Ram.
