Karya Siddhi Hanuman temple is located at Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Girinagar- Bangalore. As the name itself says the Hanuman here is considered to be fulfilling wishes of his devotees (Karya – means any wish; Siddhi – fulfilled). This hanuman image is installed by Sri Ganapathi Sacchidananda Swamiji. Hanuman is a monkey god who served Sri Rama as his servant and took a very important role in Ramayana by locating wife of Sri Ram (Seetha) and also fought against Ravana who was the emperor of Lanka. Hanuman is worshipped in several forms such as Veera Hanuman, Panchamukhi Hanuman, Shanti Hanuman, Prasanna Anjaneya, etc. Temple also holds images of Anagha Devi Sametha Sri Dattatreya, Lord Shiva, Ganapathi, and Navagraha Gudi (small shrine).
Thousands of devotees visit the temple everyday. At all the time, temple is crowded and one can see lot of coconuts tied around the temple. This is because of “Poorna Phala Samarpana”, a type of pooja prescribed at temple for fulfilling the wishes. This should be done in a prescribed manner.
Poorna Phala Samarpana (Poornaphala Deeksha)
Devotees can offer poorna phala (coconut) to Lord Anjaneya for the fulfillment of their wishes. The process of following this “Poornaphala Deeksha” is as follows: Devotee has to make a sankalpam (make a wish in front of the god) and tie the coconut with its outer shell (poornaphala) at the temple. Devotee has to chant Karyasiddhi anjaneya mantra everyday 108 times and do 41 pradakshinas twice a week at this temple during this course of 16 days. Alcoholic drinks and non-vegetarian food has to be stopped during this period. On 16th day, this coconut which was tied has to be removed and offered to lord and it should be utilized to prepare some sweets and should be distributed among family, friends, and relatives.
