What is the procedure to perform Chandi Homam?

Here’s how to perform chandi homam:

  1. The first few rituals are common for all rituals dedicated to God. Chandi Homam begins with Anujnaa (Permission from the Goddess), Acamanah (self-purification), Pranayama (to increase the spirituality inside the body), and Sankalp (take a vow to complete the ritual).
  2. The Ganapathi Pooja or Homam is conducted first to appease Lord Ganapathi without whose blessings, nothing is accomplished.
  3. The Kalasa Shuddhi process occurs next followed by the Agni Prathishthapana. This procedure involves the starting up of the fire inside the Homa Kundam with Camphor, dried coconut, and the Darbha grass. The Digpalaka Pooja is performed next to honour the rulers of the four directions.
  4. In an elaborate form of this Havan, the Panchopachara Pooja or the Shodasopachara Pooja are also performed.
  5. The Go-Pooja, Parivaara Pooja, Suhasini Pooja, Dampathi Pooja, and Brahmachari Pooja are performed before the Yagna.
  6. The Saptashati Parayanam is the main part of the Pooja. The thirteen chapters of the Saptashati have 3 parts dedicated to Mahakali, Mahalakshmi, and Mahasaraswati. These 13 chapters collectively contain 700 Shlokas that must be recited to complete the Homam.
  7. The last section of the Homam involves Uttarangam (Vote of Thanks) and the Poornahuti (Last offering).

There is two types of chandi homam. 1) if performed in home for the purpose of a particular cause it is called Chandi homam 2) if performed for the sake of public at large and it shall be performed in Temple and is called Chandi yagam. There is no restrictions one should a strong will and wish can perform with the help of priests.

    Any video of the Homam to watch in advance and for getting acquaintance ?

  33. before doing chandi Homam we have to follow any procedure like we have not to eat non veg like that is there any specification is there kindly let me know .

    1. The Chandi Homam is an extremely elaborate Homam and is usually performed by several priests together in front of a large Homa Kunda. The Homam can be performed in all major Temples dedicated to Goddess Durga or Parvati.

  34. Which Day (thithi) is auspicious to perform Navachandi Homam and Navachandi Parayanam?
    Are. April 7 and 8 dates suitable for this?
    Can we perform this Homam in Sharadamata temple instead of Durgamata temple?
    How many priests are needed for nava chandi Paarayanam(samputi)?
    What is the approximate expenditure incurred?

    1. Nav Chandi Homam is a very elaborate and expensive procedure. It requires very experienced priests. The price varies based on location but it is usually around 50-70 thousand. You can perform it in Sharadamba Temple.

  35. Hi..
    I am a brahmin, planning to perform Chandi Homam at my home on April 22nd 2018, on occassion of 5 yrs completion on my home ghruhapresevam…. and DOB is 5th May 1984.

  36. Pranam Sasidhar ji ????

    What CARE should be taken while performing Shata Chandi homam ?
    I have heard it is very difficult to perform and one should not commit even a smallest mistake.
    Could you please explain what kind of mistakes should be avoided here ??

    Thanking you SO much in advance,
    Harsha Kulkarni.

    1. Dear Harsha, We do not recommend performing Chandi Homam by yourself or at home. It’s a very powerful ritual and must be performed only at a Durga Temple in the presence of several priests.

      1. Thank you for your reply Sasidhar ji.

        Yes we are getting it performed in a durga temple by 50 priests. But still what CARE should we take on our part ?

        Harsha Kulkarni

        1. The priests will know all the procedures. Just make sure that some of the priests are experienced and have done the ritual before. It is preferred to perform the Homam during daytime and finish the rituals before sunset.

  37. 1.Can Chandi Homam be performed at home

    2.Whether after performing the Chandi Homam, can we visit on same day other’s home? Will it affect others, when we visit other’s home after conducting Chandi Homam.

    1. Chandi Homam is a very powerful ritual. We do not recommend it to be performed at home. Please visit a Durga Temple and arrange to perform the homam there. You can visit other’s home without any problem after the homam. It will not effect them.

  38. For information, Cost of Shatha Chandi Yagam is ₹5116 which is happening in my hometown​ at SriBhaktanjaneya​ Swamy temple Bellampalli….

    This cost looks less because many other things are donated by other devotees… Homa Gundam, Anna dhaanam, Tea supply, so many Tents, Chandi Ammavari idols, many other things etc…

    Eg: Ghee cost is more, imagine for 3 days for Shatha Chandi Homam..

    Around 30 renowned high knowledged priests/ Pujaris are participating from different parts of the country…
    3 days they really have to recite many Vedic Slokas, Amma Slokas is not an easy task that too with so much devotion and dedication..

    Cost depends on where the Yagna/Homam happens, type of Homam and many other miscellaneous costs.

    Jai Chandi Matha Amma ki Jai..
    Relieve from all our problems maa….

  39. I am so lucky to be part of Shatha Chandi Yagam currently happening today at SriBhaktanjaneya Temple, Bellampalli, Mancherial district, Telangana state… This ritual is for 3 days… Thanks Sasidar for giving good insight. Thanks to all the Priests for performing this ritual which is happening first time in my District..
    Thanks to my parents for making me part of this….

  46. Sir. Some people tell that Chandi homa should not perform in home, it should be in temple only. Is it right or wrong.

  47. Can I do at in my house chandi yagam
    If any problem s for this Pooja. Or

    Any good things
    I suffer before Chand yagam some problem.

    1. It’s not a good idea to perform chandi homam at home. It’s an elaborate ritual which requires a group of pandits and a lot of chanting. It’s better to do it at a temple. Also, its better to perform chandi homam during the 9 days of Navratri rather than on dasami day.

  48. Hi sir ,
    Namaste! ????

    I have one doubt. Who can perform this Chandi Homam? Means married person only should perform or unmarried (brahmachari)person also can perform.

      1. You can perform Ganapathi Homam at home regularly but please do not perform Chandi Homam at home. It is too powerful and must be performed only in temple premises.

    1. It is not recommended to perform Chandi Homam at home. It is a very elaborate ritual and only learned priests can perform it and that too in the temple premises.
