This year the Vidyarathi Homa was performed on 28th May 2017 in our Math for Balamandir students. As a part of the Homa, students offered vilva leaves in the Homa the sacrificial fire and repeated the Vidyarathi Mantras, invoking the blessings the Goddess of learning. The mantras describe the real purpose of education and preparing a person to achieve a real education. The Homa arrangements were officiated and looked into by monks of our Math. Swami Buddhidananda of the Math performed the Homa. After the Homa, Prasad was distributed to students.
