You can give cash, gold, fruits and flowers as offerings to Shri Mahalasa Narayani. But She can be pleased with a devotee with only a very simple offering of Kumkum vermillion. This is rare for a Goddess! Prayers to her, if performed from the heart, seldom go unanswered. Ever since this website was launched we have received several e-mails vouching for this fact. Some of the e-mails are really very touching.

Miseries can be overcome and the human existence becomes meaningful. Indeed by reading it, a devotee can get closer to Mother Mahalasa! The Charitra is available in English, Kannada and Marathi versions. Among the many stotras dedicated to Shri Mahalasa, the most interesting is the Kavacham, which means shield or armour.
The Kavacham is respectfully regarded as having the powers to protect one from all evil, illnesses and a host of problems. One can recite the Kavacham or listen to it to get mental peace and satisfaction. The Kilakam stotra has to follow the Kavacham. Then there are those who keep printed versions of the Kavacham in their breast pocket as a virtual shield! And, rarely do these people face any major problems….

It is also said that if you happen to be at a temple where Her Palakhi is to be taken out generally this happens in the evenings , you are not supposed to leave the temple without taking part in the joyous occasion. Only then can the services be offered. The most important days of Utsav festival are during Navaratri which falls during the first fortnight of Ashwin Ashweeja.
This is a time when all Her temples are packed with devotees flocking from all over to receive Her blessings and partake in the communities activities.
At Mardol, the Jatra or Jatrotsav is another important event, usually during the month of Magha. Apart from its location among splendorous hills and forests, She is celebrated here in the form of Van Devata, the Goddess of the forests. However, the main attraction for many devotees here is the adhyatmik spiritual philosophy propounded by His Holiness Guruji Shri Suresh J.
Pai, who emerged out of a classic guru-shishya tradition. Here, Guruji — also known as The Singing Saint — advises his followers to concentrate continuously on God and avoid the temptations and pitfalls of the material world. It is amazing that Shri Mahalasa Narayani Devi Kshetra, Harikhandige, is one spiritual centre where the direct participation of devotees — along with vaidiks and priests, or individually — is wholesomely encouraged in many poojas and yajnas and on special occasions.
On certain days, the devotees themselves can perform the Kumkumarchana at Her feet or perform the full pooja, including Abhishek seva, to Lord Gurudatta at the spritually powerful Datta Peetha.
