Puja may be performed by an individual worshipper or in gatherings. It includes a combination of mantra (recitation of Vedic mantras), yantra (meditation on mystical representation of subtle energies) and tantra (rituals of worship).Homa (also known as homam or havan) is a Sanskrit word which refers to any ritual in which making offerings into a consecrated fire is the primary action.
The Pujas offered at our temple are performed in authentic Vedic tradition and are a true communion with the divine.
