A puja is a kind of prayer, a Hindu ceremony of devotion. In India this is performed either in temples, or in the home. The five elements are honored: air, space, fire, water and earth. There are various chants or songs that are presented. It is a ritual that involves all of the senses. Traditionally, there is an offering of fruit and flowers, and incense is lit. Bells ring, and camphor is circled around. This is a beautiful experience, filled with symbolism and love. I found this great site that has “virtual” pujas online, we can click on the incense, flowers, camphor, coconut and bell and get a glimpse of what a puja is like. It’s fun, and there’s no cost, check it out!
