Siri Joyti Ritual


A Ritual To Support New Beginnings


The Siri Joyti is an ancient ritual designed to bless and commemorate new beginnings and life milestones, including:

  • Moving to a new house

  • Opening a new business

  • Starting a new project

  • Anniversaries or birthdays

  • Marriage and births

The Siri Joyti engages all of your senses. You and your community will help create a beautiful Sri Yantra mandala while meditating and chanting in support of your intentions.

We will support and guide you through the process.

The Ritual:

Your group will create a Sri Yanta using different types of materials.  Common materials include flowers, leaves, rice, chalk and candles.


While you are creating the Sri Yantra you will be guided through a series of mantras, offerings  and meditations. 

When the Sri Yantra is completed we will gather for group meditation and celebration!

The ritual usually takes about 4 hours to complete. Learn more about the ritual and its history below.

We offer flexible programs based on your needs and budget.
