MA Center Chicago (MACC)

LAKSHMI PUJA

Oct 14, 2018 5:00pm-7:00pm (ended)

Pūja is ritualistic worship of the Divine performed to keep us in harmony with cosmic forces, thereby removing and overcoming the sorrows of life and bringing spiritual upliftment. By doing pūja, thoughts and vibrations of spiritual forces are created around us. These spiritual forces work to eliminate the negative influences in our life and help surround us with positive energy which can bring us peace of mind, material prosperity, and enable us to more clearly touch the Divine, our true nature.

Br. Shantamrita Chaitanya will perform a Lakshmi Pūja on Sunday, October 14, 2018 in the Satsang Hall at MA Center Chicago (MACC) from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This pūja is recommended for augmenting material and spiritual prosperity besides ensuring overall physical and mental wellbeing.

Sponsorship is $190 per person.

Payment may be made through PayPal or by check made payable to MA CENTER with “Lakshmi Puja” in the Memo. Check may be mailed to MACC PUJA, c/o MA Center Chicago, 41W501 Keslinger Road, Elburn, IL 60119.

Deadline to register through PayPal is Friday, October 12, 2018. Please note that you may use your debit/credit card to make a payment through PayPal and do not need an account.
