Bless Your Home Megan & Neal.

Recently I was fortunate to be asked to attend the Hindu blessing of my dear friends new apartment in the Hornsby Shire.

The colourful ceremony which lasted around 2 hours is performed by the Hindu priest visiting the new home and included offerings to the gods, chanting, ritual of tying thread to the wrist, and a small fire on which a small coconut was placed. The coconut is offered in the sacrificial fire whilst performing homa.

House blessings are performed to protect the inhabitants moving into the house or apartment.

Thank you Megan & Neal for allowing me to be present and photograph this special occasion for you both, may you have many happy days in your new home.
