Dear Devotees,

Sub: Shivaratri Puja

Shivaratri will be celebrated on Thursday, the 11th March, 2021 with whole night puja starting 8:00 pm. Devotees present can offer milk, water, etc to Lord Shiva at the end of each Prahar Puja.

The temple can seat a maximum of 80 on first come first served basis. Please note that we will provide only a thin sanitized seat for sitting in the temple.

No one will be allowed to stand in the temple if there is no place for sitting. Devotees have to do pranam and immediately leave the premises.

The programme will be webcast live on YouTube so that the devotees unable to come to the Ashrama can participate from their homes. The relevant links would be shared by email at least a day before the function.

We once again furnish below the Government guidelines: –

· Temperature checks will be done at the entrance to the Ashrama. Anyone with 99 degrees F and above temperature will be denied entry.

· Devotees with symptoms of cold and cough will be denied entry.

· Social distancing norms are to be strictly followed at all times inside the Ashrama premises.

· All visitors MUST wear face masks while inside the Ashrama.

· No offerings will be allowed inside the temple. The same may be deposited at the temple entrance and will be used after being properly disinfected. For the time being devotees may bring only fruits (not sweets) for offering.
