Kumbhabhishekam for Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple Frisco Texas USA slated for July 18-23, 2015
“Whoever constructs or helps to construct a Vishnu temple will protect eight generations of fathers, grandfathers and forefathers from falling into Hell.” (Vamana Purana)
With blessings of Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple is very happy to announce that the Maha Kumbhabhishekam will be celebrated from July 18 thru 23. Very elaborate plans to conduct Kumbhabhishekam are developed as per Agamic traditions. Thousands of devotes of Sri Swamiji from different countries are eagerly planning to converge onto Frisco Texas USA with excitement, anticipation and unflinching devotion. Elaborate arrangements are being made by the Temple authorities to make sure the process will be as spiritual as uplifting with pride and honor.
Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji will perform Kumbhabhishekam which is a ritualistic process whereby divine energy is stored in Kalasas that was generated by chanting of sacred Vedic mantras at the Homas. Through Abhishekam the divine energy is ceremonially transferred to all the presiding Moorthys in the Temple as well as the Kumbhas that are placed on the outside Gopuras. This Kumbhabhishekam is believed to harmonize and unite the divine energy with the installed deities made of different stones. The stone vigrahas are transferred in the centers of energy and power. Kumbhabhishekam is performed to benefit those who attend the function, visit the temple on a regular basis, and participate in the worship services. It is also believed even those who are unable to visit the temple but by just beholding the Gopuras/ Shikhars reap spiritual energy of the presiding deities.
Program highlights include:
Kumbhabhishekam Celebrations during July 18 - July 23*
Guru Purnima on August 1
40 days Mandala Puja until August 30
Various Pujas, Homas, Cultural programs
Saptaha Lecture series by Parama Pujya Sri Swamiji

History of the Temple.
With the guidance and blessing of Sri Swamiji, ten acres of land was purchased in January 2008. While function as a Temple in a small trailer, ten thousand square feet building was planned to be used as the center activities to serve the religious, educational, spiritual, and cultural needs of the community. Sri Swamiji inaugurated the Hanuman Cultural Center (HCC) of the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in Frisco, Texas during July 2009.
In order to serve the ever expanding needs of the Hindu community across the United States, in July 2013, Sri Swamiji performed Bhumi Puja for a 34,000 square feet Temple. Over the last two years the construction is going at a very rapid, brisk pace to make sure that the new Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple is inaugurated in July, 18-23, 2015. This is the only Temple with Lord Hanuman carved in Marakata stone as the main presiding deity in the western hemisphere. Temples with a Marakata Moorthys are renowned to bring peace, protection and spiritual benefits to those who visit.
In a speech given in July 2011, Sri Swamiji emphasized the importance of the Temple. “The Marakata Hanuman Moorthys which will be consecrated here when the Temple is built, is ready… It took three years for the sculptors to prepare the Moorthys. They came and stayed with their families at the [Mysore] ashram, leaving all other business. Marakata is a very difficult stone to carve.
It will be wonderful when it is consecrated. When the Moorthys is under the light when abhisheka is performed with milk, Hanuman will look glorious. Swamiji will definitely come and stay in Frisco for 40 days then, for one mandala. When I begin to talk about this Moorthys, my mind becomes quiet and contemplative.
Presiding Deities of the Temple
The Main (moola) Murthi) in the new Temple will be Marakata (Emerald) Lord Hanuman> Ram Parivaram will be behind Hanumanji. The will have Lord Ganesha, Sri Rajarajeswari, Crystal Shiva Linga along with Lord Dattatreya, Lorr Bala Subramanyam and Navagrahas.
