MSJS Centre/Jinalay Bhoomi Poojan Khanan Vidhi

Bhoomi Poojan:

Bhoomi Poojan is performed before the construction to seek the blessing of the holy gods and goddesses and to consecrate the place with positive energy. Bhoomi puja is dedicated to Goddess Bhoomi, Vastu Purush, Khestrapal (Protector of Land) and the deity of direction.

Bhoomi Poojan gets the land rid of any evil or bad powers, enabling a fresh and auspicious start.

Khanan Vidhi:

Khanan vidhi also known as ground breaking is a symbolic and auspicious tradition. We will be digging the land reserved for a MSJS Centre and MSJS Jinalay using the Pickaxes.

During the process Labharthi families will be given a chance to perform initial ground breaking ceremony using pickaxes and start foundation building for the future MSJS Centre/Jinalay.

This tradition also shows our commitment towards successfully completing our endeavour to build grand Jinalay  and MSJS Centre.
