Pooja Items & Samagiri

Pooja Samagari

Worshipping is an elaborate ritual practiced every day in most of the Hindu homes. It requires a number of special Pooja Items & Samagiris that is difficult to find everywhere. Every object associated with the ritual of Puja or worship is symbolically significant. The statue or image of the deity, which is called 'Vigraha' means something that is devoid of the ill effects of the planets or 'grahas'. The flower that we offer to the deity stands for the good that has blossomed in us. The fruits offered symbolize our detachment, self-sacrifice and surrender, and the incense we burn collectively stands for the desires we have for various things in life. The lamp we light represents the light in us, that is the soul, which we offer to the Absolute. The vermilion or red powder stands for our emotions.

The traditional pooja is often an individual ritual and for the families rather than to a mass of congregation. The spirit of sacrifice and offering of ones belonging is stressed in these services. The devotees take what is given back to them as "Prasadams", let it be holy water, ashes, kumkum, a flower, a fruit or a full meal. The prayer services at home are also very similar in practice. Often there is a special prayer room in the home. Here, prayer services are offered to a picture, small icon [vigraha] or a lamp which is sanctified by rituals for the occasion. The Divine powers of the form of God offered prayer on that occasion is represented in this. The rituals are simple and they first invite God as a guest to the house. The God is then woken up every morning with a morning service with ceremonial bath with water, milk and other perfumed substances, dressing up with cloths and Jewelry. The services are repeated four to six times or more every day, with offering of food as "prasadam" and singing prayers and songs in praise of the Deity and chanting of the traditional Mantras and singing of the Bhajans in the background. The service concludes with the rendition of the traditional Aarti and the offering of "prasadams" of fruits, flowers and food to the devotees attending the prayer services.
