The religious ceremonies from India are the oldest existing functional spiritual ceremonies in the world. They can be traced back to approximately 8,000 BC.
Pujas are held as a form of asking the Divine for help and guidance, for seeking true spiritual advancement and for expressing gratitude.
These ceremonies take the power of the Sanskrit mantras being chanted and drive them through the nadis or nerve tubes of the subtle body, clearing accumulated karmic debris which has sometimes been stored there for many lifetimes.
Although Pujas come from the Hindu tradition, this ceremonies are not religious oriented, but spiritual instead. Participation does not require any change in our belief system, and it respects any chosen religion or the lack of it. Everyone is welcome, and can benefit from partaking in this inspiring event!
