PUJAS

“Puja” or religious prayers are offered in various forms and occasions to show reverence to God and make a divine connect through invocations, prayers, songs, and rituals. The word pūjā (Devanagari: पूजा) comes from Sanskrit, and means reverence, honour, homage, adoration, and worship. Puja may be peformed on set frequency (like daily), on specific days and to mark special events. Laxmi Puja for example is carried out extensively on the occasion of Diwali. Puja may be performed alone, with family and friends and in community form in presence of a priest.

WEDDING PLANNING

When two people unite in the holy matrimony, it is a major milestone in life, specially after birth and completing education. The unification of two partners to be bound as one is one of the saṁskāras (sacraments), which is a lifelong commitment of two, made in heaven and considered as a “divine knot sanctified by fire”.

Marriage is a union between a male and a female with a commitment to pursue Dharma, Artha (possessions), Kama (physical and other desires) and Moksha (the liberation) together. It joins two families. It is a gateway to earthly life of pleasure, progress, prosperity and joy, as it is also an altar of elevation to a level of spiritual experience!

The SD Mandir offers ‘Vivaah’ rituals and much more, from offering a venue and other related arrangements to make it a memorable experience. Please contact us for all necessary support to realizing this milestone.
