regarding chandi homam

Not open for further replies.
Chandi Homam is normally done to remove any obstacles or troubles. Goddess Durga
is invoked and puja is offered to seek HER blessings. Chandi is a very powerful Deity.
Performance of Chandi Homam relieves one from all bad evils, curses, obstacles,
sickness, if any, besides it brings peace, lasting health, wealth and prosperity.
Goddess Shakthi i.e. Chandi is the embodiment of all the Divine Forces and She
is called the Mother of the Universe. Normally, when this homam is performed
different types of materials are purchased to offer in the Homam.
Sastrigals will be able to give a list of requirements for doing this Homam. Durga
Saptashati is chanted. Around 9 Sastrigals gather for this to chant the Mantras. The
homam is commenced with Anugyai Sankalpam, Ganapathi Puja, Punyakavachanam with
Kalasa Sthapanam followed by Bairava Puja (Lord Shiva's incarnation) and at the end

Gud Morning Bala Sir, Your reply to the thread is detailed and very clearly stated.Thank u for the efforts you have taken for it ,as it gives a proper idea about the homam.
Regarding Chandi Homam

I have never heard Chandi Homam being performed at Residential Houses.

I do NOT know whether "Norms" have changed in recent years.

Almost every year during Navarathri this is performed in Temples--Ashrams----Matams--Or in the Camps where Sringeri Jagadguru or Kanchi Jagadguru performs Navarathri Pooja.

It is to please Nava Chandi --or Nava Kaali--or Nava Durga'

The entire 700 verses of Duga Saptha Sathi or what is called Devi Mahahmiyam with Poorvaangam and Uttaraangam are used as Mantras for offering Oblations to Sakthi.

Most part of 700 verses describe how Devi Duga--Devi Lakshmi and Devi Sarasvathi "Neutralise" the demons and devils like Mahisha(buffalo head)--Sumbha--Nisumbha(Both Idio syncracies and Morons)--Madhu(Intoxicants)--Kaitabaha--Raktha Bheeja(vicious seeds of blood--something like modern Blood Malignancy--as more and more blood cells are destroyed more and more will proliferate)--Dhoomra Lochana (an asura with smoke filled Eyes ) etc.This is performed for the Welfare of County-Society--Community--Country--World etc.Perhaps NOT performed at Homes/Residences.

I do not think this is described in "Grahya Sutras".I may be wrong and stand for correction--

In my opinion, Kanchi Sankara Acharya Swamy or Sringeri Sankara Acharya Swamy would be the most appropriate "authorities" to advice.

Thank you very much Madam. As I was out, just now only, saw your message. Sorry for
