CHICAGO: Hindu Mandir of Lake County, Grayslake, a Chicago suburb, hosted three-day-long annual celebration of the anniversary program last weekend from 24 to 26 June 2022.  Hundreds of devotees attended and participated in the program and made it a grand success.

The First day evening, temple priests, Pt. Anil Joshi Ji, Pt. Radar Krishna Ji, and Pt. BaliGoal Ji performed Prabhavali (प्रभावलि) Prarambhik Vaasam (purification and Sthapana/ installation) Puja with sacred jal, nava dhanya, fruits, and flowers after the grand sponsor sankalpam. The Prabhāvali is an ornamental gold plated archframe with intricate etching and installed around the deities, which mimics the aura of the presiding deity it shadows and gives it a powerful posture and a vision of supreme divinity.

The second day’s morning program started with the Prabhavali Parikaram Yatra followed by the sankalpam of sponsors of Lord Ganesh, Sarva Devata, and Kalash Sthapana Pujan. Later Sarva Devi-Devata Homams were performed with all the Vedic rituals and by reciting the Moolamantras for living a healthy, wealthy, and prosperous life or all the living creatures on this earth. A sumptuous Maha Prasadam was served to all the devotees after the Maha Mangalarati. In the evening, Pradosham Pujan was performed to receive the grace and benevolence of Lord Shiva.
