Arati & Bhoga

Every day six offerings of food and seven aratis are made to the Lord. In a special kitchen, devotees prepare elaborate items, which are then offered to the Deities. The offerings are made before every arati (ceremony of worship). The arati ceremony is part of the public worship of the Deities. It is conducted in a traditional style dating back thousands of years. Lamps and fragrant incense are offered, along with flowers, a peacock fan, and other items. To mark the beginning and end of the ceremony, a conchshell is blown. Mahaprasadam (sanctified food) is then distributed to all the guests.
