The rest of the donation funds will be designated as the fundraiser event for the Temple of Peace. And of course, each person’s donation comes with a Homa fire blessed prasad.
The different levels people can choose from are:
Student, senior, and absentee level: $35
Individual sponsor level: $51
Couples sponsor level: $99
Family sponsorship level: $151
Exclusive family sponsorship level: $300
Each individual havan (fire pit) will have 5-7 individuals participating in the chanting, and offering physical substances to their fire as an offering, and led by the main chanters at the large fire pit. The difference between the Family and exclusive family, is that the $151 allows 2 small families to join together to share one havan. The exclusive is for those who want just their havan reserved for their own family.
Mandatory registration is required
