Life is a cycle of defining moments from birth till death, each moment has its own memories, the 16 stages in life are celebrated with pujas known as the Solasanskar in the karmakand. The Vedas and the Purans has prescribed the rituals and the rights for these different stages in a human life. The most popular of the Holly books the Bhagwat Geeta describes Kramakand karmayog , Rajyog and Bhaktiyog
It is unfortunate many of the ancient philosophy and rituals get distorted in 21century by house wife tales and even worse by the present day gurus and somewhat sophisticated appearing disciplines such as the Bhramakumaries the B.K. who while extract the essence of Raj yog from the Bhagwat geeta and conduct funeral services without chhatspindi Sardh or the last rights of the deceased no pind sanyojan no sardh kariya and advocate to feed everyone without the karmkand , well no one should eat anything at their home in these circumstances as they are in Shutak.
We at the Shree Shakti Mandir Wembley provide authentic pujas, rituals and rights while listening to your needs and advice you accordingly.
Shree Sanatan Dharma is universal which was there before creation and will be there even after the Sanhar the devastation. It has a no boundary everything that is around us is all naturally Sanatani . The animal kingdom the plant kingdom the Universe that we know of as well as the one beyond us about which we know little about is all Sanatani.
Hindu Religion and the word Hindu has a very narrow meaning to it as that was used to describe the people who lived in the Indus Valley civilization who practiced this Sanatan Dharma . Sanatan Dharma is for everyone, everyone is a born Sanatani but which ever Prophet ,Saint or Guru you chose to follow in the name of GOD gives you a religious I.d. . So no one can convert to Hindu or Sanatan Dharma, from birth and by the natural position within the creation everyone and everything is Sanatani.
In this modern time and age where we actively integrate with the world at large inter cast weddings may seem as though it is knew but in the Mahabharata and the Purans there has been ample inter cast weddings Hadambas wedding being amongst many .

Message : Dipak Pandit ji did house warming ceremony for us at our flat in Chertsey in dec 2011. We found pandit ji's details by searching for hindu priest on internet. That was the first time we performed Havan and we felt so blessed after completing the ritual. Pandit jis attention to detail, doing every ritual as it should is marvellous. English translation of mantras is the highlight, which made it so easy for us to understand the reason for each ritual, some how when blessing us he said next I will be comming to bless your house .
We visited to Shakti Mandir to get blessings from pandit ji when we bought new car.
And now we bought a house in Ashford August 2014 its Dipak Pandit ji who did hosuewarming for us i.e Ganapati Puja followed by Havan. Also did puja for our Kuldevta and our ancestors it made us so contended after the process to be able to worship them & get blessings. We see the same dedication,enthusiasm and sense of humour in pandit ji which we witnessed three years ago.
Our family n friends who attended the Puja were all praising Pandit ji for the wonderful ceremony. This time Panditji said I will come to bless your palace next ,we said we only want your blessings we felt the precesnce of Gods and Goddess each time , that in it self is a real blessings.
Thankyou very much Pandit ji for your blessings & coming all the way to Surrey.
Thanks and Regards,
Chaitanya & Sreekanth.
