Frequently Asked Questions
Puja is ritualistic worship of the Divine performed to keep us in harmony with cosmic forces, thereby removing and overcoming the sorrows of life and bringing spiritual upliftment. By doing puja, thoughts and vibrations of spiritual forces are created around us. These spiritual forces work to eliminate the negative influences in our life and help surround us with positive energy which bring us peace of mind, good health, longevity, good luck, protection, fulfilling relations, material prosperity and enable us to more clearly touch the Divine, our true nature.
Homa is a sacred fire ritual done using technique given by the sages and enlightened Masters to create a specific desired effect in our lives. It involves an oblation or any religious offering made into fire. The Homa is also called "sacrifice ritual" because the fire destroys the offering, but a Homa is more accurately a "votive ritual". The fire is the agent, and the offerings include those that are material and symbolic such as grains, clarified butter, milk, incense and seeds.
Yagya has been a part of an individual or social ritual since the Vedic times. When the ritual fire – the divine Agni, the god of fire and the messenger of gods – are deployed in a yagya, mantras are chanted. The hymns and songs sung and oblations offered into the fire are a form of hospitality towards the Vedic gods. The offerings are carried by Agni (fire) to the gods, the gods in return are expected to grant boons and benedictions, and thus the ritual served as a means of spiritual exchange between gods and human beings.
Yagya is a large scale ritual lasting over several days and involves daily oblations in the sacred fire. It can be either performed by a few priests over multiple days or several priests performing in a single day. Many people use the yagna or yajna words instead of yagya, the meaning of it is the same. Yagyas are done by highly learned vedic pandits, who are the experts of vedic ceremonies and who live their lives' according to the rules of vedic tradition.
They create a positive effect not only in the people who are around but also in the people whose names have been chanted in the Sankalpa mantra – the mantra for conscious resolution, irrespective of how far they are. They help address our concerns/problems by invoking a specific/particular set of deity energies for the fulfillment of the Sankalpa.
Sankalpa is the mantra for conscious resolution. In layman terms, it is a small prayer which primarily focuses on "the wish/desire behind performing a particular ritual".
Sankalpa means ‘intention’ formed by the heart and mind. When you take a sankalpa, you simply invite the Universe to listen to your intention; you pray, and surrender the intention to the Divine. You don’t have to keep thinking about it or get worked up about it. Work towards it, then, let it go, and rest in the faith that only the best will happen to you. Know more

Yajmaan is the leader or patron of a Puja or Yagya. He initiates it and provides financial assistance for the process. Yajmaan is a person who conducts sacrifices and becomes part of the deity. He gives dakshina (fees) for the priests. It is only through the provision of dakshina, Yajmaan can achieve the fruits of the sacrifice. After the completion of the puja, Yajmaan receives blessings from the divine entity. Know more
Dakshina, daksina, or दक्षिणा, is a Sanskrit term from Vedic literature that refers to an offering or gift, typically to a priest. da, meaning “offering” or “giving”; kshi, meaning “to dwell in”; and na, meaning “knowledge”. The dakshina is considered a duty, or dharma, and is part of the universe's cycle of giving and receiving. As per the Indian tradition, the dakshina is offered to the priest(s) for every ritual they perform, by the person (Yajamana) for whom it is being performed.
13. Are Online Pujas / Homam / Yagya effective? even when the person for whom the puja done is not physically present?
An interesting specialty of the way of worship in the Hindu tradition is – like how money is credited in an account which is far away from the place where the money is deposited; yagya, homas and pujas done as per the scriptural injunctions create the desired effect in you irrespective of how far you are from the place where the homa /puja is performed. The energy built up in the homa/yagya fire automatically reaches the participant and fulfills the participant’s true desires leaving a glimpse of completion in the participant.
