KAILASA Celebrates Panguni Uttiram, Sakala Devata Kalyanam, Holi & Lakshmi Jayanthi

March 24-25, 2024 – The auspicious day of Panguni Uttiram was celebrated by KAILASA in all its global temples and embassies worldwide. This sacred day was marked by the convergence of multiple traditional celebrations.

Panguni Uttiram is the day the divine unions of various deities are celebrated across the cosmos. On this day, heavenly bodies align in perfect harmony, and the energies of the universe are at their peak. The cosmic unions of Paramashiva and Devi Paramashivashakti, Sita and Rama, Andal and Ranganathan, as well as the union of Subrahmanya and Devasena, are all celebrated on this sacred day. The Sakala Devata Kalyanam ritual enacts these divine marriage ceremonies, allowing all individuals to look up to Gods and Goddesses to imbibe higher conscious values.

Subsequently, KAILASA celebrated Holi, the festival of colors, one of the main Hindu festivals. In Vaishnava tradition, Holi is celebrated as the day Radha and Gopikas united with Krishna in the Rasa Leela and experience the blossoming of the Sahasrara Chakra, the experience of Enlightenment. Each Gopika experienced their own Krishna, realizing Krishna in their Soul, the absolute spiritual ecstasy. This ancient festival is celebrated by millions of non-Hindus globally every year, highlighting the inclusivity of Hindu tradition.

This day was also marked by Devi Maha Lakshmi’s Jayanthi (birth anniversary), which included hundreds of rituals, offerings of gold, silver, Rajatha Arathi, Maha Lakshmi Archana, gold coin and Payal (anklets) offerings, Tulabharam, and a grand Pratyaksha Pada Puja during which hundreds of devotees expressed their gratitude at the feet of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH), BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM. 

On this occasion, with the blessings of THE SPH BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM, KAILASA Tiruvannamalai in its campuses of Sri Nithyananda Janmabhūmi and Sri Nithyananda Janmabhūmi Kshetram, held the Nithyananda Aushadha Annadhan, a large-scale offering of free medicinal food. In line with THE SPH’s vision of serving all devotees of Annamalaiar, KAILASA’s mega-kitchens run at their fullest capacity every Pournami (full moon) to provide generous sanctified nourishment to more than one lakh (100,000) people a day, at no cost. These efforts have reached more than a billion people worldwide to date.
