Symbolic Significance of Puja Or Worship In Hinduism
Astrological birth charts show us the status of our karma. The birth chart shows us the areas in our lives that are likely to pose challenges and cause us problems. This is the result of the karmas that we have brought from previous lifetimes. These can be remedied by poojas in Jothish.
Jyotish Shastra not only shows us the problem areas but also offers us remedial measures for the same. Undertake remedial measures for any Dosha after consultation with a trusted and learned astrologer. A remedy prescribed for one individual is not necessarily the exact same remedy for another. In general, astrologers prescribe remedies according to the individual’s individual chart and the practicality of being able to perform the remedy. Remedies range from spiritual practices, mantras, tantra, fire rituals, gemstones, poojas, and temple visits.
Sometimes, misguided attempts to perform Navagraha Shanthi poojas might cause a planet that is actually performing as a benefit in a person’s chart to stop giving benefits. So an experienced and qualified astrologer as a guide is very important before embarking on pooja remedies.
Many religious rituals and temples are prescribed as remedies. Poojas for doshas have their own special meaning and benefit as per the concepts of Vedic astrology and remedies. So, taking the trouble to visit a prescribed temple for a particular dosha or performing the prescribed ritual will go towards rectifying the karmic problem that a dosha represents in a horoscope.
Why do we do poojas?
The system of worship was designed to please a particular deity for obtaining some blessings and rewards. This Puja is for the fulfillment of human desires, wants, freedom from sufferings, for off-springs, for marriage, rise in status and position, for health, wealth, and other desires
Is daily pooja necessary?
In the Hindu Culture, daily puja is considered as the simplest way to convey our ode to the supreme almighty for bestowing us with this life and fulfilling all our wishes based on our Karmas.
From the time of Rishis, Daily Puja has gained its importance both as a spiritual practice and Aaradhana.
