Puja FAQ's

  • +
    What are Pujas ?

    Puja is a religious custom which is carried out as per our Ancient Vedic scripts. Puja is performed to appease God, a Planet or any other Divine Entity. Puja is generally performed by learned Brahmins following the Rules and guidelines laid in our ancient scripts. The Puja is generally performed for accomplishment of certain wishes or for protection against any negative effect. During Puja, the performer establishes a contact between him and the deity by chanting certain Mantras for specific number of times and thereafter a Yagna is performed wherein different items are offered to the Deity with a pleading to bestow blessings. 

    It is behavioral tendency of humans that whenever we, the earthlings face any type of trouble we immediately start looking for some Supreme Power or a force to pull us through the problems and put an end to the difficult situations. There cannot be a better solution than to resort to God Almighty who himself has created us. It is for this very reason that our age-old sages invented a way to communicate and convey our problems to almighty God for solving and getting rid of our problems or seek the divine blessings to save us from haunting problems via certain specific measures which are known as Puja and Homas.

  • +
    What are Benefits of Pujas and Homas ?

    • For attainment of Health, Wealth & Happiness in our lives.

    What are Online Pujas ?

    Generally the day to day Puja can be done by any person on his own, but specific pujas need to be performed by experienced and learned Purohits or Pujaris to get the appropriate benefits since these Pujas need to be performed strictly following the rituals and guidelines provided in our ancient scripts. Hence, it becomes utmost necessary to get access to a learned and experienced Brahmin along with his team of other Brahmins (most of the Pujas need at least 3-5 Brahmins) to perform the required puja so that expected benefits can be derived out of it. Also there are many Pujas like Dosh Nivaran Pujas which cannot be performed at Home and therefore it requires a suitable Temple for this purpose which may not be available at many places.

    Now, even if the above two basic requirements are fulfilled at selected places, yet it becomes very problematic for someone who is residing outside India. For such NRI people performing a Puja in a proper way either becomes impossible or otherwise exorbitantly expensive. It is due to these situations that a concept of Online Pujas has been invented wherein a client residing abroad can book a Puja through our Online Puja service providers. Once the puja is booked, the client can get the Puja performed on their behalf that too in a perfect way and at affordable cost. Any Puja that is ordered Online is performed by a team of Brahmins (usually at least 3-5 Brahmins). Out of them, one of the Brahmins takes a "Sankalp" in client’s name who has booked the Puja and then he performs all the recitals and rituals that were supposed to have been done by the person if he was himself physically present in the Puja. This means that the Brahmin who has taken the sankalp virtually represents the client who has booked the puja during the entire puja procedure.

  • +
    Can the Online Pujas be deemed effective without the presence of the person who has ordered the Puja ?

    We are pleased to declare that the online Pujas have already benefited a large number of people which is confirmed by the very fact that the same people have given repeated bookings for other Pujas after their initial order. We do not disagree that if a person himself is present in the Puja, then it is the best option and it is for this reason that we always request and are ready to welcome the person who has booked the Puja to attend the Puja ceremony himself. They can also opt for friends or relatives to attend the Puja. The fact that Online Pujas are also very beneficial and effective is further ascertained by large number of feedbacks and testimonials sent by our grateful and esteemed clients. However, just like it is necessary to find a genuine learned Brahmin for performing Pujas at your end, similarly it is also mandatory that you book an online Puja with a time-trusted and experienced Online Puja Service Providers who should have all the necessary infrastructure as well proper learned Brahmins with them.

  • +
    What is the proof of that the Puja has actually been performed and on the day it was scheduled ?
    As such, we do send few photos of Puja performed to our clients and we are very religious minded people and are deeply bothered regarding the problems of our clients who place their precious trust on us for performing the pujas on their behalf so that they can get a desired result as per their expectations. These Pujas are performed by our learned and well experienced Brahmins/Pundits who have mastery in this line since they have been practicing it since a very long term of at least last two generations. All the pujas are performed exactly according to the guidelines prescribed by our ancient sages and our Vedic literature so that our clients can derive the maximum gain of them.

    All these pujas are performed at Ahmedabad, India and the venue will be finalized by our purohits depending upon the type of Puja. The date is normally within 3 days of the receipt of the order unless it demands for a particular date either due to the customer’s choice or due to the type of Puja which requires to be performed on some specific Tithi (date according to the Hindu calendar) as per Vedic Shastras.

  • +
    How do we know that the puja is ONLY dedicated to us and it is not a combined Puja for a number of clients at the same time if they all have ordered the same puja ?

    We assure you that each and every Puja performed by us is an individual Puja which means that it is performed for one single individual person who has booked the Puja. However, sometimes, Names of his Family members may be recited during the Sankalp if the client has specifically instructed us to do so. This means that suppose, a person has ordered a Lakshmi Narayan Puja and the same Puja has also been ordered by say 4 more clients of ours then all these Pujas will be performed separately on five different days.

  • +
    How Long does it takes to see the effects of the Puja after it has been performed ?

    Normally, the positive effects of the Puja are observed within 30-45 days after the Puja has been performed. However, there can be some variation in this period at times depending upon the individual's horoscope and his transitory planets. Please note that as already explained earlier, Puja and Homam are done as a Prayer and an effort to request the God Almighty for showering his Blessings on the person who has booked the Puja. However, the final aftereffect and the level of relief always abide the God Almighty.

  • +
    How Long it takes Prasadam of the Puja to reach me after the Puja has been performed ?

    Please note that the Prasadam of the Puja is despatched via reputed couriers like DHL, UPS, DTC depending upon the delivery destination and normally, the Prasadam is delivered within 8-10 days (for destinations outside India) after it has despatched. We inform our clients about the shipping details as soon as the Prasadam has been despatched along with other relevant details so that they can keep track on the movement of consignment online by themselves.

  • +
    How do I know what has to be done with individual items of the Prasadam after I have received it ?

    Please note that generalized details regarding each item of the Prasadam are provided on our Puja Prasadam page. In addition to this, for your ease and convenience, we also send a printed copy of instructions specific to your puja regarding each and every item of the Puja Prasadam.

  • +
    Is there any item in the Prasadam that I have to consume ?

    Taking into consideration that edible items tend to spoil, we do not send anything for consumption. It has chances to get deteriorated while in transit thereby becoming unsuitable for consumption, which can be a health risk and hence avoided by us.

Yantra FAQ's

  • +
    What is Yantra ?

    The literal meaning of Yantra is "Instrument". A Yantra is a geometrical design serving as a highly efficient tool for contemplation, concentration and meditation. Yantras carry spiritual significance and elevates the user to higher levels of consciousness. The Yantra provides a focal point that provides an aperture to connect with the absolute. When the mind is focused on a single object (in this case a Yantra), the mental distractions get eliminated. Eventually, the object is given up when the mind becomes capable to remain empty and silent without any assistance. In the most advanced phases, it is possible to attain union with God by constant geometric visualization of a Yantra.

  • +
    How do Yantras Work ?

    At the base of yantra operation is called "Shape Energy" or "Form Energy". The idea is that every shape emits a particular frequency and unique energy pattern. Examples of old trusts in shape energy are the yantras and mandalas of eastern philosophies, the star of David, the five pointed star (pentagon), the Christian cross, the pyramids and so on. Certain 'powers' are attributed to the various shapes. Some possess 'evil' or negative energies and some 'good' or positive energy, but exceptionally in YANTRA there are only favourable and harmonious energies.
    When one fixes his focus on a yantra, his mind gets automatically "tuned in" by RESONANCE into the specific form energy of that yantra. This process of RESONANCE is then sustained and magnified. The yantra merely acts as a "tune in" mechanism/device or a doorway. The subtle energy does not come from within the yantra itself, but from the MACROCOSM. Fundamentally, yantras are described in the Vedas as secret keys for establishing RESONANCE with the beneficial energies of the MACROCOSM. Very often the yantras can put us in contact with extremely elevated energies and entities, thereby providing incredible help on journey of the spiritual path.

  • +
    But I don't see any moving parts or mechanism in it. It's just a piece of metal with some kind of geometrical design on it.

    It is similar to the fact that you don't see any frequencies of sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. You don't see gravity, you don't see a magnetic field. Still we are the most affected and controlled by those forces. In the same manner, yantras are big conductors of cosmic energy.

  • +
    How much time does it take to notice positive result ?

    It depends on the size of Yantras, material of Yantras and also the type of yantras. In most normal situations, yantras get totally activated within 40 days of installation and continue to increase energy once stimulated.

  • +
    How does it work to help me ?

    Yantras have geometrical and mathematical wavelength of natural forces to attract and absorb cosmic energy. Just as your TV or radio antenna absorbs the transmissions, the yantras works with the elements for better reception of positive energies.

  • +
    I am still confused and skeptic about how a piece of metal can change my life ?

    The geometry etched on this metal piece has colossal power. Each yantra is equivalent in effect to a Sanskrit Mantra as Sanskrit is a unique language of the Gods that can be inscribed into a yantra. So placing a yantra gives the potency of that mantra to you and your surroundings.

  • +
    Does it need to be placed in a certain way ?

    Yes, direction of placement plays a major role to show the impact. Every yantra works on condition that it is placed in the correct way. This also applies to placing deity idols.

  • +
    Does the size of yantra make any difference ?

    Yes, the bigger the yantra, the more is the outcome. For smaller rooms, small size is sufficient.

  • +
    Can I eat non-vegetarian food and smoke or drink while wearing yantra ?

    Yes, you can. Ancient texts have not mentioned any such taboo associated with yantras.
