About Puja
Puja is an ancient form of worship in which we invite the divine object of worship to
take a seat in our hearts. One of the most important aspects of puja is the
preparation, for as we prepare, we bring our minds into focus on the divine, or more
refined energetic realms. Thus, anything you can do to purify yourself (mentally and
physically) and your environment is worthwhile. Begin by showering or at least
wash your hands and brush your teeth, then dress in clean clothes. The puja actually
begins as you start to prepare yourself and the tray of offerings. See the list below for
recommended items. You may also visualize the offerings. The main ingredients are
love and sincerity.

After you gather the items take a few deep breaths and center. Gaze softly at a
picture or image of Nityananda. Feel your connection or your wish for a
connection. This is an excellent way to work more deeply and expand spiritually.
Although puja can be performed at any time, it is best done in the hours before
sunrise, at sunrise, noontime or sunset. It is also best to set a regular time to perform
it.
