Sudarshana Homam

Sudarshana Homam – Cost, Benefits, and Procedure

Sudarshana Homam is a Hindu ritual involving fire. Participating in Sudarshana Homam helps a person destroy negativity, gives him victory over the enemies, and protects against the evil eye.

The homam grants purification and helps in restoring energies and health. It also promotes success and provides deep levels of purification.

Sudarshana Homam owes it’s origin to the Sudharshana Chakra which is among the major psychic weapons of Lord Vishnu who is the preserver as well as the sustainer of the Universe. Lord Vishnu has always been portrayed as holding the mighty Sudharshana Chakra which is a kind of a wheel, in one of his hands. This is his weapon and he always triumphantly flings it at the negative forces to forcefully slice them with a spinning motion.

According to Hindu scriptures, the Sudharshana Chakra originated from the extra shavings from the Sun God, Surya. Saint Vishwakarma created a few powerful golden objects from the Surya Deva including the Sudharshana Chakra. Devotees also believe that the weapon had 108 serrated edges. The Sudharshana Chakra is a mighty weapon that had the power of a million suns.

    The purpose of the homan is to get rid of all obstacles which we are facing for my sons marriage which is delayed due to one reason or
    the other. If there are obstacles within the family from relatives and friends and if there are efforts by misguided people to stall or postpone
    the marriage prospects of my son, this homan will help save clear all those obstructions which come in the way of marriage. In short, this
    puja is to get the blessings of Lord Vishu thru sudarshana homam to get rid of all kinds of obstacles created by people within and outside
    the family in the matter of marriage of our only son whose marriage prospects are getting delayed due to unknown forces which are working
    against our sons marriage prospects.
