Pooja Items

The heart of any faith can be found in the relationship between the follower and the divine; many ceremonies, such as Pooja rituals, are occasions where this relationship is deepened through prayer. According to Wikipedia, the word "Pooja" (sometimes spelled Puja) comes from Sanskrit, and means reverence, honor, homage, adoration and worship.

A Pooja ritual is intended to host, honor and worship one or more deities, or to spiritually celebrate an event. If you're preparing for a Pooja ritual in commemoration of a deceased family member, you'll find this list of necessary Pooja items very useful:

  • One (1) Picture of Bhagwan Shankar (Shiv ji)

  • One (1) packet of the appropriate Puja Samagri

  • One (1) packet Hawan Samagri, a mixture of aromatic, medicinal herbs like areca nut, rudraksh mala, haldi powder and camphor

  • One (1) small packet of Cotton

  • One (1) packet of Incense Sticks (Agarbatti)

  • Two (2) pieces of sacred white thread (Yagyopavit)  

  • One (1) bunch fresh flowers

  • Five (5) Basil (Tulsi) leaves

  • One (1) small packet of holy water of the Ganges (Ganga Jal)

  • One (1) small packet of rose water (Gulab jal) or perfume

  • Five (5) Betel leaves (or Paan, a mixture of Betel leaf and areca nut)

  • A few pieces of Sandalwood

  • One (1) small packet of sesame seeds

  • One (1) pound dried dates  

  • One (1) piece Coconut

  • One (1) packet of clarified butter (Ghee)

  • One (1) packet of honey

  • One (1) white shroud (Kafan), 2.5 yards (2.9 meters) in length

  • One (1) small roll of Aluminum foil

  • One (1) box of wooden matches

  • One (1) plate
