Prayer at Home

Puja or Prayer is usually performed by at least one member of the household every day. Puja is a means of honoring the gods or goddesses, whose presence in the home is believed to protect the family and to give good fortune.

 The process of Puja includes Lighting a Lamp,the metal used for lamp must be of Brass as it gives peace and prosperity to the devotees, an incense burner and a tray with flowers, fruits, and food to Offer to GOD

As a part of daily puja, the deities' presence is done by washing each sculpture with milk and then with water  dressing it, and adorning it with flowers and kumkum, a red dye. During worship, each devotee gives to the gods offerings of more flowers and fruit.
