Satya Narayana Pooja

A Samuhika Satya Narayana Pooja is organised at the Komarpanth Samaj Hall, Opp. Police Quarters, Kajubag, Karwar, on the 25th January 2009 at 10-00 a.m. The couple presiding on the Pooja would be Smt. and Sri. Maruti Raghoba Naik of Kadwad, Karwar.

What is Satyanarayana Pooja ? Satyanarayana Puja, or Satyanarayan Pooja, is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, who is the preserver of the Universe in Hindu religion. Satyanarayana is a highly compassionate form of Lord Vishnu. Performing Satyanarayana puja is believed to usher in prosperity. 

Lord Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita (Ch4.9) " Janma Karma cha may divyam yevam yo veththi tha-thwathah...." " One who knows My divine birth and activities will not be born again". Sri Sathyanarayana katha is one such activity of the Lord, by studying which we have every chance of being liberated. Sri Sathyanarayana katha forms a vital and integral part of this pooja. Not listening to the katha will be a major loss. Repeatedly hearing this story and meditating on its different aspects will make us more and more interested in the Lord and His activities.
