Camphor, a sacred element in puja rituals!  In our puja rituals we use Camphor (Karpuram in Sanskrit) as an important sacred element. Camphor once lit, it burns away without any residual. The only residual left is a soothing fragrance. Similarly we use camphor while performing puja as a promise to god that we would enlighten others and spread love without any trace of ego.

The shape of the tilaka is often an indicator of devotion to a certain deity. For example, a 'U' shape tilaka usually denotes devotion to Vishnu, while Shiva devotees often wear it in the form of three horizontal lines. It may be made of saffron, vermilion, turmeric, clay or simply ash.

Ganga Aarti at Har-Ki-Pauri ( हर-की-पौडी), a famous ghat at the bank of river Ganga in Haridwar, is an amazing soul touching spectacle. The golden hues of the diyas reflected in the river during the ritual is an awesome view. In literal terms, Har means “Shiva” – Ki means “Of”-Pauri means “Steps”. This place is believed to be Brahmkund where drops of Amrit (elixir) fell from sky while it was being carried by Garuda, the celestial bird.
