Your purpose of coming to thiruvenkatam is to protect the worlds.


Since you are the lord of all the worlds, it is your responsibility. Your
kind eyes prove that you will protect all of us. When we slip in our
duties, if you were to be a little annoyed, Alarmel Mangai is there to
appease you. The fact that you will never disregard her words is shown
by you always being with her.

Gods like Ayan and Aran repect you by holding you on their heads. You
too protect with love any one who surrenders to you, without heed to
any of their shortcomings.

you will protect me. Your grace should protect me.

You are endless giver of grace. You always do good things, even
unasked, to your devotees. Undoubtedly Upanishads confirm that you
are supreme and I strongly believe that there is nobody above you.

Even Crore Manmathas together cannot match your beauty. Usually


inert Gopikas surrounded you, attracted by the music of your Flute.
You are the one to give Moksha(boon of no rebirth). Vasudeva got you
as his son due to his penance in his prior birth. All these are proof of
the fact that you are the Supreme power.

you killed the erring Ravana and fulfilled the wishes of Devaas. Whole

to you. I too surrender to you.

LORD GANESHA

Sri Ganesha is the first son of Sri Shiva and Sri Parvathi. Hindus pray
to Ganesha before starting any new task. Among all the wonderful
Hindu Deities, Ganesha is the closest to the material plane of

consciousness, most easily contacted, and most able to assist us in our


day-to-day life and concerns. In His hands, He wields a noose and a
goad, With the noose He can hold you close, or hold obstacles close.
He can capture and confine both blessings and obstacles. With the
goad He can strike and repel obstacles. He is called remover of
obstacles.
There are several modern shrines to Ganesha across the Universe.

Ganesha the elephant faced God is usually worshipped First


before any other worship Service is carried out to any Other
deity.

Ganesha or Ganapati is an extremely popular God. He is called Vighneshvara


or Vighnaharta, the Lord of and destroyer of obstacles. People mostly
worship Him asking for siddhi, success in undertakings, and buddhi,
intelligence. He is worshipped before any venture is started. He is also the
God of education, knowledge and wisdom, literature, and the fine arts. In
reality, He is Brahman

' PUJA' WORSHIP

(By Pt. Shrinathji)


Puja is a word in Sanskrit language, which stands for Worship. In the word Puja -- 'p'
stands for 'paapa' meaning sins.
'j' stands for 'janma' means birth.
With 'p' it removes all accumulated sins, and 'j' it makes your life's (birth) purpose
fulfilled.

The Lord being not accessible to our eyes, ears, nose, touch and beyond the ken of
ordinary (undefined) Intellect, the ancients devised a method of bringing Lord within the
realm of the senses. This method is to worship God in an object (photo, water, fire,
precious jewel, idol etc) which you can touch, feel, smell, see, feel the taste of. Thus all
wandering senses are brought to a focus, by belief (faith) and by daily practice.

Unshakable faith and long practice, evokes and unfolds hitherto unknown dimensions in
awareness, which are generally not communicable in the normal way. By puja you will be
in a positions to inject noblest thoughts in the subconscious. Above all, one will succeed in
solving the mystery of 'Life'.

Do the Puja anyway you can with Devotion and love for Lord in your heart.

God out of his mercy will overlook all the shortcomings of men if they pursue the
path of devotion with fervor. At the end of worship, daily or occasional, a prayer is
offered to God not to mind the defects while chanting the mantras or adapting the
procedures or for forgetting to do some duties out of ignorance. The Almighty is
compassionate enough to ignore such errors. Thus mercy being His chief trait, a
devotee need not be concerned with minor defects if his endeavors is absolutely
sincere but the enjoined duties should not be abandoned.

Let us look at the Puja format


As we discussed in previous paragraphs All pervasive God is being worshipped in the form
of photo or Idol. To worship God two things are very essential. 1. Shraddha (commitment)
and 2. Bhakti (Devotion). The worship of God is in the format of Upacharas (royal
respects). Let us see what they are:
Dhyaana : We first meditate whom to invite
Avaahana : We invoke the presence of God
Aasana : When He arrives offer the seat to sit down
Arghyam : Offer a spoonful of water to wash His hands
Paadyam : Offer water to wash feet
Aachamanam : Offer some water to drink
Snaanam : Take him to bath (you chant shlokas telling the glory of God
Panchamrita : Mixture of milk, yogurt, ghee, honey and sugar. These five nectars
are selected to give bath.
Vastra : Offer a piece of cloth
Yajnopaveeta : sacred thread
Gandha : Offer sandal paste for the body
Akshata : Offer unbroken decorated rice
Aabharana : Offer ornaments
Pushpa : Offer flower
Ashtottara Puja: Chanting 108 names of His excellence
Dhoopa : Offer perfume sticks (agarbatti)
Deepa : Offer the lamp
Naivedya : Offer fruits and prepared sweets
Paaniya : Offer water to drink
Tambula : Offer betel leaves
Mangala Arati: Wishing well and show aarati asking for light of knowledge
Mantrapushpa: Offer the flowers of hymns
Pradakshina : Circumambulate your self for removal of sins
Namaskara : Total surrender
Praarthana : Prayers ( here you say why you called and why you did the Puja)
Kshamapana : Apologies for mistakes
Visarjanam : Concluding the Puja

The above said format is very easy to follow. Worship God, tell your prayers and always
be blessed.

GEETHA DHYANAM

Introduction : Geetha Dhyaanam, also called Dhyaana Slokas, has Nine Slokas of
Prayerful Meditation.
These Slokas are usually chanted by Students devoted to the study of Bhagavath
Geetha, before they start their daily Geetha Lessons. This is much similar to our
tradition of praying to God before starting any auspicious undertaking.

Sloka 1:

DASHAA DHYAAYINEEM….
AMBA TVAAM ANUSANDADHAAMI BHAVATH GEETHE
BHAVATHVESHINEEM……
Meaning : (This sloka is a prayer to Bhagavath Geetha itself). I constantly
meditate upon Bhagavath Geetha, which is a Divine song, with which Partha
(Arjuna) was enlightened by Lord Narayana himself, which was incorporated in
the midst of Mahabharata by the ancient Sait Vyasa, in the form of 18 chapters.

Sloka 2:
NAMOSTHU TE VYAASA VISHAALA BUDHDHE
FULLARAVINDAAYATAPATRA NETRA

the petals of a full-blown lotus flower, by whom was lighted the Lamp of
Knowledge filled with the Mahabharata Oil.

totally surrender to Him, who has milked the Geetha Nectar, the holder of
GnyaanaMudra, the wielder of the cane in one hand with which He drives home
the herd of cattle under His protection.

Sloka 4:

Gaandharaa as the blue Water-Lily; Shalya as the Shark ; KRuPA as the current ;
Karna as the Breaker ; Ashvathama and Vikarna as the terribel Crocodiles;
Duryodhana as the Whirpool in it. This “River” was indeed crossed over by the
Pandavas with Kesava (Lord Krishna) as the Ferry-man.

May the spotless lotus of the Mahabharata
Growing in the waters of the words of Parasara’s son (Vyaasa),
having for its sweet and pleasant fragrance the significance of Geeta,
with many narratives as its inner soft petals, fully blossomed by the stories of Hari
and joyously drunk day after day by the six footed (honey bees),
the good in the world – be productive of the supreme good to us who are eager to
destroy and safely come out of the inner imperfections of the Iron Age.
