  3. Very good article. . pooja is a very important ritual of everyfestival. Most of them nowadays don’t know why or how to do pooja including me. I usually buy pooja kits from Pureprayer website. they have all these audio cds and booklets with instructions. Just doing the pooja is not sufficient.we should know why we do also. this article is very good.
