ॐ नमः शिवाय

Om Namah Shivāya

We are celebrating the Annual Sri Rudra Ekadasini Pooja & Homam/Havan
at the Hindu Temple of Ottawa on Saturday 06 May 2017.

Sri Rudra
Sri Rudra-ekadasini is an auspicious event performed for the well-being, peace, prosperity and Loka Kalyan of the Community in Ottawa. As per the Great Saint Yagnavalkya, the very vibrations from the Sri Rudram also known as 'Satha Rudreeyam' - as the Lord manifests in thousands of forms - will create a great inner peace and harmony that aligns and elevates the inner senses to attain the noble wishes.

The Pooja will start at 6:00AM in the morning and will conclude with the auspicious 'Vasordhara Homam/Havan' after chanting Sri Rudram 121 times (11 ritwiks chanting 11 times). We plan to conclude with Arathi and Lunch Prasad at 1 PM.
