Daily Puja and Mantra Japa at Home

Puja means worship or reverence of the Divine. Most of the Vedic scriptures and epics including the Vedas, Upanishad, Ramayana, Mahabharata and more emphasize the significance of performing daily puja at home. There are various types of the Pujas ranging from simple ones to really elaborate and complex ones. Pujas such as Rudra Abhishek, Satyanarayan Puja, Diwali Puja, Vastu Puja and other are performed on specific days and events only few times every year. Many devotees often perform a small daily Puja before leaving home for daily blessings of the Divine, Sattvik living and positivity. Devotees mostly offer Deity Pujas either to their favorite Deity or Ishta Devta or to a specific Deity for a specific purpose.

Daily Puja Procedure

As per the shastras or scriptures, early morning is the best time to perform daily Puja. The time after the sunrise in the morning is considered as most Sattvik as Sato Guna (mode of goodness) is highly active during this time. As a result, the mind is calm and highly focused. There are many rituals and steps involved in conducting the daily Puja such as Mantra Japa, Shlokas Chanting and even fire rituals. These steps together create the required vibration and energies to ensure blessings and positivity. Pujas are offered to various Gods and Goddesses depending upon particular day which is dedicated to a particular Deity. It is mentioned in scriptures that offering Puja to any Deity is equivalent to offering Puja to the Supreme Consciousness (Brahman).

Daily Mantra Japa Vidhi

Mantra Japa is the practice of repeating mantra while focusing on the meaning of the mantra. Mantra Japa is best done using a strand of beaded mala known as Japa mala made of Rudraksha, red sandal, Tulsi or sphatik beads. Chanting of mantra helps anchor the fickle mind, improve focus and concentration and helps attain peace of mind.

You can follow below mentioned steps to repeat mantra using a Japa Mala:

  • Sit on an Asana (rug) in a steady and comfortable pose in Sukhasana or Padmasana.
  • You many resolve to repeat certain amount of mantras
  • Use a rosary or japa mala with tassel or Sumeru and begin the Japa on a bead next to Sumeru or tassel or Guru bead by gently rolling it between thumb and ring or middle finger until you reach Guru bead
  • Do not cross the Guru bead instead reverse the bead string and start with second round and repeat the procedure mentioned above
  • Ensure the level of mala is not below the navel and do not use the index finger for rolling the mala
  • Rhythm the mantra with the breath and think of the meaning of mantra
  • Repeat the mantra slowly with a feeling that the mantra is purifying your thoughts and heart
  • After completion of mantra Japa, sit in silence for some time to imbibe the spiritual vibrations of the mantra Japa

  • One again thanking you with full heart and with good wishes and regards

    Respected and Beloved Neetaji, Thank you for your kind invitation which I attended from 8.40 to 11.30 pm yesterday. It was pleasant to watch you doing Rudra Abhishekam with all the devotion and with all the ingridients like Milk, Honey, water, Prasadam etc. You are so thoughtful to engage the services of about a dozen Pundits who were chanting hyms, Panchatchara Mantra besides Rudram/Chamakam. The whole atmosphere was reverberated with spirital fervour. I think all the devotees who attended the function enjoyed it. To cap it all, you have also made every one to participate by doing Abhishekam close
