On the auspicious day of Karthikai Somavaaram on November 25, 2019, Richmond Temple celebrated the event with Sangabishekam with 108 conches for Lord Shiva. It was an exciting day for the devotees because the Sangabishekam was being performed for the first time in the Richmond Temple. The conches had been flown to Richmond all the way from the sacred town of Rameswaram in India thanks to the diligent efforts and philanthropic minds of some ardent Shiva devotees.

Under the guidance of Pundit Kannanji, the conches were washed, decorated with sandal paste and kungumam and the 108 conches were arranged in the form of a Sivalingam surrounded by flowers. Two kalasams one for Uma and one for Maheswara were kept in the middle. The conches and the kalasams were filled with water and puja was performed for them. With the priests and devotees chanting vedic mantras and Rudhra japam, abishekam was performed to Lord Shiva using milk and the water from the kalasams and the conches. A huge gathering of devotees watched the proceedings with rapt attention. The puja ended with the distribution of prasaadams to the devotees.

The Sangabishekam would again be performed on all the following Mondays of the Karthigai month, December 2 and December 9 of 2019. Devotees in USA can visit the Richmond Temple on those days and get the blessings of Lord Shiva. For more details, visit the website https://www.therichmondtemple.org/.
