Luxmi Ceremony in Hyde Park for Abundance & Love (Navarathri event)

Dear all,
This year, Navarathree (Nine nights of the Goddess) takes place between 13th -21st October, with Vijayathasami (Victory Day) on 22nd Oct.

We’ll be getting together in October, to participate in our own Luxmi  ceremony..  for wealth, love and abundance).

he many Hindu Temples in London will have 10 days of celebrations, rituals, Abishekams, Poojas and prayers. I thought it would be lovely to hold our own Ceremony in the park in a natural setting.

It will be lovely for all of us to post ideas and co-create this special event. (Many years ago I facilitated a very simple Luxmi chant / event in Trent Park).

About Goddess Luxmi – she is the Hindu deity born of the Sea, married to Lord Vishnu, and symbolises Love, wealth, material foundations..  Usually seen as seated on a red lotus flower. She has similarities to Venus.

What we will be doing / ceremony:

Once we have gathered everyone at the Fountain area, we’ll all walk up to a nearby quiet area…along the Serpentine lake.

–For most part we’ll be seated on the ground..  so bring cushion/ ground sheet/ blanket etc..

• –Altar set-up:    A Luxmi altar will be set up on the ground..  Feel free to bring your own deities/ritual/ ceremonial items to place on altar..  Flowers welcome.  we’ll have holly ash (thirnoor), sandal wood paste and kungumam for annointing our selves (on forehead).  Incense sticks will be well as candles in lanterns.

• –ceremony begins with bell ringing 3 times.

• –Chanting of Luxmi name 108 times (`Om Luxmi Namaha’).  During this time (may take 10-15 minutes), we shall all still our minds, attune and connect to Goddess Luxmi.

• – Arti / flame offering & consecration:

• Arti is the ritual waving of a flame (camphor block burning on a censor) over the deity and ritual offerings and tools.  This flame is then said to carry the energy of the deity..and it is offered to all participants..for consecrating themselves (touch flame and place hands to eyes or forehead).

• All attendees may also do the arti to the deity (careful: the metal censor will be hot).

•  -Various Luxmi chants/ other chants.  (15-20mins)

• -Flowers will be offered to Luxmi.. during chants.

• Bell rung 3 times – ceremony ends.

•  -picnic & social

venue: (confirmed).- Hyde Park, Italian Gardens.

We’ll meet by the Italian Gardens..  near the central fountain on the edge of Serpentine River .  Then we’ll move to a more secluded spot (to be decided on the day for the ceremony).

Time:  ** Please be at meeting point  between 2pm- 2.15pm.    Some of us have evening we will start this Luxmi Pooja promptly at a chosen location at 2.30pm.  Best come join us from the start…

The date – now confirmed   – saturday 17th October’15

Bright Blessings

Woodland Wiccan Samhain / Halloween 2015- Seasonal Open ritual in London

Join us for the evening to mark SAMHAIN – the night for honoring our ancestral spirits! Outdoor Samhain is particularly intense because of the real dark (wet, windy) environment among trees and bushes that are already bare …! As evening falls, there is an eeriness that also becomes apparent.. Once at the ritual space, you will be immediately involved in the ritual – of the calling of the DarkLord, and communing with ancestors. Some divination work will commence before feasting

“Samhain is a festival for the dead and ancestors. Death is seen as a transition from one phase of life to another (The Death Card in Tarot has similar meaning), or from one incarnation to the next. This rite invokes the God an Goddess of the underworld. The Dark Lord opens the gateway between our world and the underworld and invites all to feast (commune) with the dead. At Samhain the veil between world is thin, and so it is perfect time for the art of divination and mediumship. On a lighter side, apple bobbing from the cauldron is traditional. Samhain is seen as the New Year in Celtic traditions”. (taken from )

Ganesh in the river – Hindu Ceremony in London

Dear all, I am organising this ritual tomorrow in Richmond..  Details below..  All welcome.. No prior knowledge of Rituals or Hindu ceremony / magic required as I will give a full explanation .. Best wishes & Blessings.  Mani


Ganesh Chathurthi is a special festival that honors the birth of the Hindu elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesha (Ganapathy, Vinayagar). He is said to remove obstacles and bring good fortune.

Ganesh in river Thames – Hindu Magic ceremony in London

This year, the festival begins on 17th September and culminates on Sunday 27th Sept, which seems ideal for us to meet for our own outdoor special event.

I had previously witnessed participated in `Durga in the water’ event in London (Putney) over a decade ago, and was inspired to start river Thames-based seasonal rituals (Tamesa London Circles). Those then evolved into Thames-Isis rituals (and still continue.. ).

However it’s been a long term wish to return to the the roots…and do a Hindu ceremony.. so here we are! :-) For this ceremony of `Ganesh in Water’, I will be creating a new Ganesh sculpture out of Willow tree branches & bio-degradable strings..

It (he) will then be used in our special water-side ceremony by the river Thames. It will take place in a `clean/ clear’ section of the river Thames (Richmond area).

I will begin making a Ganesh figure tomorrow morning and will bring the figure (probably 1′ x 1′ x 1′ – bulky to carry).

On the day, `he’ will be placed on the altar..and we can all add items, leaves, twigs and other bio-degradable decorations.. while Chanting & prayers take place.

Then we will place Ganesh in the Thames and send him on his way.. :-)
