Shri Sukta Abhishek are the rituals in which Godess Laxmi & Ganesh are worshiped with vedic mantras (ganpati atharvashirsha & shri suktam). The godess is served with sixteen upacharas - panchamuratas, kumkum, fruits, dhoop etc. After that devotees are given prasad & a picture of Mahalaxmi Mata in the form of Prasad. This is the form of seva under which we serve the godess during the auspicious nine days of Navratri.
Its a religious Hindu ritual and a form of sacrifice performed during Navratri. As per the Hindu belief the Ved mantras are nurtured. The godess is served in the form of “yadnya” and various types of poojas are offered like Avahanam, Abhishekam, Archanam. The things which we want to offer at her feet are given to the enlighted fire, the “yadnya”. It is believed that those things were directly accepted by the divine universal energy as those are put in the Yadnya / Havan. In the havan we offer elements which also serve in clearing the atmosphere, there by bringing positive energy in us, and making a connection with the cosmic energy.
