Puja (worship) is based on the philosophy of ‘Everything is Within You‘. ‘Worship daily & feel Divinity inside you!’ Everyday at early morning connect to inner source for few moments to feel Calm / Happy / Peaceful & start your day with Positive Energy. See quick 3 minute clip to understand how Hindus do Puja / Aarti (Prayers or Worship) at home daily or during festival. Puja encourages Togetherness in family & society around, Devotion, Spirituality, Stress-free mind, Positivity and Peace.
Puja / Worship can take approximately 15-20 minutes. As per the rituals (Hinduism believes start of the day at Sun rise not at mid night & end of the day at Sun set. Sun is source of our life on the earth), Puja should be done twice a daily at home with all family members together, each during Sunrise and Sun set.
If busy, then Puja can be performed individually as per one’s schedule or has option to visit nearby temple when free. Rituals in Hinduism are kept pretty flexile and customized to suit every individuals.
