The following pictures are from last months celebrations of Hanuman Jayanti at our ashram in Chennai. In South India Hanuman Jayanti usually occurs in the month of December, whereas North India celebrates it around the month of April. On the auspicious occasion, thousands of people came to our temple for darshana of Lord Panchamukha Hanuman.
There was a special abhishekam done with milk, honey, curds, coconut water, sugar water, turmeric and other auspicious ingredients. In the evening all of the devotees participated in Harinama Sankirtanam, chanting of the maha mantra “hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare, hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare” for the pleasure and happiness of Lord Hanuman. Following the evening arati and kirtan there was distribution of prasadam to all of the devotees.
If you live in Chennai, we invite you to visit our temple located in Taramani, near to the back gate of IIT. Every evening there is kirtan, and there are classes on the Bhagavad Gita every Saturday and Thursday night. The temple is located at: Sri Panchamukha Anjaneyar Siddhar Peetham, No. 28 Yerikarai Street, Taramani, Chennai.
