Maha kumbhabhishekam April 2017

Kumbhabhishekam is a Hindu temple ritual that is believed to homogenize, synergize and unite the mystic powers of the temple deities. The building of the Perth Hindu Temple on its completion was duly consecrated with a Maha Kumbabhishekham held on 8th September 2005. (This was followed by a Maha Kumbabhishekham for the Rajagopuram on 1st of June 2008). Since its inception, the Temple has followed the Aagamic traditions in all its rituals and ceremonies. According to the Aagamas, a “punar udhaarana” Kumbabhishekham is required every 12 years in the life of such a temple. New Vigrahas (icons) and additions to the Temple are also consecrated during this auspicious time.

Perth Hindu Temple, like all Temples has grown on the strength and dedication of its devotees. A Maha Kumbabhishekham ritual ceremony is performed once in 12 years. This auspicious occasion provides an opportunity for the devotees to take part and involve deeply with renewed dedication, in our Temple’s magnanimous religious function and also to reaffirm their faith and connection to the Lord Almighty.

The Planning Sub-Committee, the Construction Committee and other specific groups being established, will effectively execute the religious work agreed upon after numerous meetings and authorized by the HAWA AGM 2015. All these tasks will be carried out through prudent management & financial discipline in the most cost-effective way.

Main proposals would include 41 statues of Lord Ganesha on the roof, another Ganesha Statue at the grass lawn area, a proper structure for breaking coconut(s), a new sanctum for Durga Matha, a new Athma Linga statue etc.

(Detailed brochure elaborating on the Proposals will be brought out & distributed, Feb 2016)
