In preparation for the Gayathri Yagna to be conducted on October 21st and 22nd at the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago, it is proposed that Gayathri Japam be performed for 3024 times by each devotee prior to the start of the Yagna. On the eve of the Yagna(October 21st), a japam of an additional 1008 can be performed. A subsequent japam of 1008 will then be performed during the Yagna.
Pls find below the Sankalpam instructions.
We specially encourage participation of brahmacharis, youth and children who have had upanayanam and kindly inform in the registration the ages of children who will be attending the Yagna. Please pass the word on to have the auspicious opportunity for the young children to participate in the Yagna.
Additional regulatory procedures to be followed: Please observe Brahmacharya Vratam for at least 5 -days prior to the Japa. Austerity and vegetarianism are recommended as well during these days.
You may chant the Sankalpam as seen below or contact Sri. Dikshitar over phone (630-290-0913) or whenever you arrange to meet him in person to have the Gayathri Maha Japa Sankalpam done through him prior to starting your Japam for the Yagna.
We look forward to your active participation,
Gayathri Yagna Committee
