Ayudha puja is the day to honor and feel grateful for all the instruments that add meaning to our life. Even small things like laptop, stationery, office files, financial investments letter, office tables to large machinery, cars and buses and every object you use as part of your profession/business, are all honored as part of the one divinity. It is one of the most powerful and rewarding puja for gaining blessings from our existing profession or business.
On the ninth day of the Dasara festival, this puja is performed. The principal Shakti goddesses worshiped during the Ayudha puja are Saraswati (the Goddess of wisdom, arts and literature), Lakshmi (the goddess of wealth) and Parvati (the divine mother), apart from various types of equipment. The Puja is considered a meaningful custom, which focuses specific attention to one’s profession and its related tools and connotes that a divine force is working behind it to perform well and for getting the proper reward.
Ayudha Pooja is one of the most significant aspect of Navratri. In Vedic culture, we set up this aspect that whatever instrument it may be, if you want to use your plough, first bow down to it and then use it. If you want to use a book, first bow down to it and then use it. Ayudha Pooja means, every implement that you use, whether it is in industry, profession or anything else, you approach it respectfully. Unless you approach something with a certain sense of reverence and a deep sense of involvement, it will not yield. The same musical instruments become different things in different people’s hands. In one person’s hands it becomes noise, in another person’s hands it becomes absolutely enthralling music because of the way you approach it.
