in Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas,
on 17th September 2019

Every year it is the custom in Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas, to celebrate the day,
specially dedicated to the Divine Lord of Architecture and Craftsmanship, Lord Vishwakarma.
In His Honour a nice Altar and a Hawana-Kunda had been established by Priests of
Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas. Shri Swami Satchidananda (left), Treasurer
Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas, Shri Swami Pragyananda (right) and
two Ashram Priests are ready to start the Yajna.

Different important tools, used by the Omkarananda Ashram Carpenter and other workers,
like hammers, screwdrivers, drilling-machine, saw for cutting wood, brushes for painting-works,
etc. etc., have been nicely placed on the Altar in front of a photo of Gurudev
Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati and a picture of Lord Vishwakarma. Puja had been
made by the Ashram Priests, so that these important tools may be blessed and
be further on used for good purposes.

The Yajna has been started and Shri Swami Satchidananda and Priest Mukesh Panditji
are offering Ahutis. In the background, watching the Hawana and partaking in its
spiritual Benefits, are sitting several Employees of the Headquarters of Omkarananda
Ashram Himalayas, Managers, Accountant, Electrician, Carpenter, Plumber,
