Puja Workshop

Saturday, July 29 @ 4:00 PM 5:30 PM PDT

In person or online
A Zoom link will be sent one hour before the event to online participants

A puja is a bhakti yoga practice which can be very elaborate. Together, we will do a simple puja, which you will then be able to do on your own any time. We will provide a sheet with the chants, as well as a photo of Ganesha to print out if you like. We’ll talk about the symbolism of the offerings and developing bhav, or feeling, in the worship practice. It’s a sattvic feast for the senses.
If you are joining online, please collect what you have from the following list of items:
tray (placemat size)
small plate
small cup of water
small strip of fabric or ribbon
flower petals from one flower
