Sattar-Bhedi Pooja

Sunday, 9th October 2022 (09:30 AM to 12:30 PM at MSJS Centre)

Sattar-Bhedi Pooja is usually performed to do Prayaschit for any Ashaatna done in Sangh Derasar or Sangh events throughout the year (Example: Sneezing during Samvatsari Pratikraman). MSJS has organised this Pooja to bring peace, happiness, prosperity, and good health to all.
MSJS will provide all required items for the Pooja. However, as we know, it provides immense satisfaction to do Pooja with personal items (Sva-Dravya). If you wish to use Sva-Dravya, Sangh will be happy to provide you required guidance. We request all Sadharmik to come in Pooja clothes to participate in Sattar-Bhedi Pooja.

 

Regardless of if you do Aayambil or not, PLEASE try to do the following's: 
1. Do not eat roots in these 9 days. 
2. Do Chauvihar as many days as possible - at least do over the weekend 
3. Do Loggasa Khamasana and Navkarvalis as many days as possible - at least do over the weekend.

  The ritual of the Navpad Oli is done in the following way:
