What is Puja

“That is what is puja by which you are blessed by the Divine so that you shoot off should of from all your physical, mental, emotional and the so-called spiritual being, which was seeking into the realm where you have sought.

So, today we must determine that we’ll have no rational activity about it, otherwise you want won’t have the joy of Sahaja Yoga, which is your achievement. Stop rationalizing it. With your heart you do the puja. All these things that you are going to do has very, very great significance, which I’ll explain to you some other time, but that explanation cannot take you too far. It is too minute to enter into the gross understanding. So, best is to absorb it and absorb it and enjoy it. Why do you want to enter into the whole machinery of electricity? You just use the electricity. All machinery is done for you, is prepared for you. Don’t try to envisage it, to conceive it in your little mind. You must know that you have to become the ocean and not try to understand the ocean with the drop of your brain. If you realize that, then you can become the ocean. Your limits are broken by puja and you become one with the unlimited. It blasts you limits and your limitations. Tell your mind not to come and trouble you during puja, then it will work out.
May God bless you! ”
