Archana is a special short puja conducted by the priest for an individual or family. It is usually done after the main puja and is a way of asking God for something important or special, such as success in school or business. This “personal” puja can also be offered to express thanks for some good fortune. Inform the priest if you want an Archana. He will tell you when it can be done and the requested minimum donation. You should bring fruits and flowers on an offering tray. As you stand in front of the shrine, the priest will ask your name, gotra (family lineage), and birth star (or sign). During the short puja you mentally pray to God. Archana can be booked online
Samskaras are rites of passage and a central part of every person’s life. There are some principal samskaras. Namakaranam (name giving) is usually done at forty days for a child or any time for an adult entering Hinduism. Annaprasanam (giving the baby its first solid food) is celebrated at one year of age. Ear piercing is also celebrated at one year. Head shaving is performed at three years of age. Vidyarambham (starting reading and writing) is at four years of age. Marriages are also performed. Samskaras can be arranged with the temple priest. The priest will select an auspicious time, explain how to prepare for the event, and what to bring. A minimum donation is requested for these special, often elaborate ceremonies which usually include a puja and a homa (fire ceremony).
The fee is $2000 (CAD) for the use of all facilities excluding the kitchen and the services of priest Dakshina.
