A Temple is a home of the Divine, meant for collective spiritual benefit and upliftment. The omnipotence of the supreme is manifested into Idols by Mantra Sakti at the time of consecration (PrathiSthapana) through a precise process ordained by the scriptures called Agamas, thereby making the Idols into Deities. After the original consecration of Shiva-Vishnu Temple in 1986, the power of mantra manifested in the Deities is to be maintained by regular worship and periodic renewal, as prescribed by the Agamas. The scriptures ordain that the renewal process should take place “once every 12-years” from the original day of consecration. This is performed through a religious process called Maha Kumbhabhishekam. Two Maha Kumbhabhishekams were previously performed in 1998 and 2010. In preparation of our 3rd Maha Kumbhabhishekam in July 2022, we must perform necessary maintenance, repairs, renovations, upgrades to existing temple structures (Sanctums, Sanctorums, Gopurams, Vimanams, Dwaja Sthambams, Deities, Nava Grahas, etc.), as well as adding new structures and installing new Deities (Kohsta Vigrahas, etc.).
The Temple has created a dedicated Maha Kumbhabhishekam organizing (APEX) committee to plan and execute the event. Nearly 100+ HCCC devotees are part of several sub-committees working together to prepare for the event. The event is a once in life-time opportunity for devotees to experience Balalayam, Deeksha, Yagashala, Homas, Maha Samprokshana, Ashtabandhana Jeernodharana and several other religious activities.
