“The great lesson is that unity is behind all. Call it God, Love, Spirit, Allah, Jehovah – it is the same unity that animates all life from the lowest animal to the noblest man.”

— Swami Vivekananda

SPECIAL LIVE WEBCAST ON SUNDAY, MAY 29TH

Jai Ma!

We’ll be celebrating Phalaharini Kali Puja as well as our 29th annual Kali Puja festival on Sunday, May 29th, 2022.  For more than two years, Covid has made it difficult for us to assemble in the temple and celebrate.  Although we are still following Covid restrictions, this year we’ve made a big effort to invite devotees from different corners in the world to come together online for this special all-day event. Here are the times (Pacific Daylight) and links for the three webcasts:

Phalaharini Kali Puja and Homa

Usha Ma took this rare footage inside the Dakshineswar Kali temple in the late 1980s. It captures Sri Haradhan Chakraborti performing morning Kali puja in front of Ma Bhavatarini.

This video was professionally edited, color balanced and sound engineered. We are making it available free of charge during this difficult time. If you appreciate our efforts in producing more such videos and would like to contribute, you are welcome to donate to Kali Mandir.
