Only by consecration does even a traditionally sculpted idol become an altar of worship. This procedure of consecration is a series of steps of highly meaningful rituals and prayers. After the consecration, the daily worship keeps an altar alive with the presence of the Devata. Human omissions call for re-consecration every twelve years, the period that Jupiter (Guru) takes to complete a full round of the zodiac.” – Swami Dayananda Saraswati

Temples in Gurukulam

Balalayam



Mahakumbhabhishekam of Sri Medha Dakshinamurti & Sri Kalyana Subrahmanya Swami temples



 

There are two temples at the Gurukulam, one for Lord Dakshinamurti and the other for Lord Kalyana Subramanya. All traditional pujas are done with shraddha and bhakti in our temples. They include pujas on Pradosha, New Year, Shivaratri, Guru Purnima, Guru Peyarchi, Sankatahara Chaturthi, Shasthi, Krittika, Pongal, Arudra Darshanam, Skanda Shasthi, Panguni, Uttaram, Ugadi, Tamil New Year, Shankara Jayanti, Ganesa Chaturthi, Navaratri, Annabhishekham, Deepavali, Thai Poosam and Annamalai Deepam.

The Medha Dakshinamurti temple was last consecrated in July 1991 and the Kalyana Subrahmanya Swami temple was last consecrated in January 2002. With the blessings of Isvara and Pujya Swamiji, the much needed renovation and re-consecration of both the temples are being undertaken under the guidance of Sri Swami Omkarananda.

As a preparatory step in the Mahakumbhabhishekam process, it is the tradition to establish a Balalayam.  With the setting up of Balalayam on 30th November, 2017,  the renovation (Thiruppani) of Kumbhabhishekham began. Kumbhabhishekham scripturally known as Prana-Prathistha which is done according to Agamic tradition involves significant rituals like Anujna, Ankurarpanam, Kala-Akarshanam, Yagashala rituals, Ashtabandanam and Kumbhabhishekham. The Mahakumbhabhishekam is scheduled for 17th June, 2018. The estimated cost of renovation and Kumbhabishekam is about 1.7 crores.

We request you to participate in this auspicious activity and earn the grace of Sri Medha Dakshinamurti and Sri Kalyana Subrahmanya Swami and their parivara-devatas.
