Live-stream of Hanumanji and Ganeshji Ārati occurs on most days. Subscribe to the Temple Youtube channel to see when Ārati is being performed live.
Ārati is a devotional service offered to one's chosen form of God. The service is performed at Gaṇesh Temple and Hanumān Temple twice daily.
During the ceremony a light is waved around the deity in a figure Om. The light symbolizes knowledge, which the deity posesses. A bell is rung throughout ārati; its sound represents nāda. Water, a symbol of divine nectar, is offered to wash the deity's feet; it is also offered to the deity to drink. At the end, songs honoring the deity are sung.
