Mariama Offering Puja with Bodhivastu, Sai Maa and Rudi Community

Join us as Bodhivastu, Sai Maa and Rudi communities come together again for our annual group Mariamma offering ceremony at Big Indian, NY.

Mariamma is known for her tangible blessing power. We will come together to perform an elaborate ceremony of multiple offering rinses of Water, Milk, Yogurt, Fruit pulps and Ghee.

The worship and practice of Marimma Lomma Gyonma, often referred to as the 20th Tara of the 21 Taras, brings great good fortune and well-being for all. She is known for controlling contagious diseases and fulfilling all wishes.
