Poonam puja

Maa Saraswati represents knowledge. Worshiping her with humility brings the required purity in our mind for the supreme knowledge to flow into us and let spiritual wisdom take root in our hearts. Sponsoring your own Saraswati poonam pooja is one way for you and your family to connect with the Divine Mother.

You will get an opportunity to choose a sari and ornaments for devi for the month, perform Saraswati pooja, and aarti with your family. Contact us to learn more.


Gurudakshina is the ancient Indian tradition of offering something of value with reverence to one’s ‘Guru’ or towards his/her cause in recognition of the invaluable knowledge imparted.

At Chinmaya Mission Ottawa, knowledge is available for all at no charge. We appreciate any offerings that help us share Guruji’s knowledge and love. Donate now.

“More important than what is behind you and what is ahead of you is what is In you. Seek it. Centred in it, act and live.”
