Puja Sponsorship Program
“Puja is a moving prayer.” Ma Jaya
About Kashi Pujas
Pujas and prayers have been offered at Kashi since it was founded in 1976. Pujas are held throughout the year, often as a celebration of a holy person’s birthday or to honor a particular god or goddess. The ceremonies are full of rich symbology, color and sound. Weather permitting, they are usually held outside, mostly at the Baba Temple. Everyone is welcome.
About Puja Sponsorship
Our Puja Sponsorship Program offers a unique opportunity to support and be a part of Kashi Ashram’s ongoing pujas and prayers. Sponsors may choose to dedicate a specific intention or prayer for the Puja and do not have to be present to participate. There are three sponsorship levels available to choose from. To sponsor a specific puja see the Kashi Annual Pujas page for descriptions and check the Kashi calendar for specific dates (they vary from year to year).
