In Hinduism, puja is done on a variety of occasions, frequency and settings. It may include daily puja done in the home, to occasional temple ceremonies and annual festivals, to few lifetime events such as birth of a baby or a wedding, or to begin a new venture. The two main areas where puja is performed are in the home and at temples to mark certain stages of life, events or some festivals such as Durga Puja and Lakshmi Puja. Puja is not mandatory; it may be a routine daily affair for some Hindus, periodic ritual for some, and infrequent for other Hindus. In some temples, various pujas may be performed daily at various times of the day; in other temples, it may be occasional.
Puja varies according to the school of Hinduism. Puja may vary by region, occasion, deity honored, and steps followed. In formal Nigama ceremonies, a fire may be lit in honour of deity Agni, without an idol or image present. In contrast, in Agama ceremonies, an idol or image of deity is present. In both ceremonies, a diya or incense stick may be lit while a prayer is chanted or hymn is sung. Puja is typically performed by a Hindu worshipper alone, though sometimes in presence of a priest who is well versed in procedure and hymns. In temples and priest-assisted event puja, food, fruits and sweets may be included as offerings to the deity, which, after the prayers, becomes prasad – blessed food shared by all present at the puja.
Both Nigama and Agama puja are practiced in Hinduism in India. In Hinduism of Bali Indonesia, Agama puja is most prevalent both inside homes and in temples. Puja is sometimes called Sembahyang in Indonesia.

Puja is defined as that which is "born out of fullness". It is an expression of gratitude for all that one has received and all that is... πŸ˜πŸ™

Today was a special day of quiet meditation at Deer Park. On my way to train @riseupmartialartsacademywi I made it a point to stop by the Temple. Focusing my thoughts, feeling the warm bricks under my feet as I circled the Stupa, these are tactile sensations I feel. As I leave I feel more aware, more patient, more open to whatever happens. It's hard to explain.

I have gained a bit of weight over the past two years. Not feeling happy about it and I am trying to work on it. Over and over again. Setting new intentions that stick for a few days and then ripples away.
On my forest walk today it hit me. I have never been satisfied with the way I see my body. Always feeling to big. Even in my teens. When I look at pictures from that time, or from my 20's, 30's or just 2 years ago - I can't get why I wasn't happy with the way I looked. I see a beautiful girl/woman who shouldn't worry about her weight at all. So why this self criticized, self loathing and destructive thoughts?
I don't have an answer for that. I just know that it can't continue. It's not worth it.
Self compassion and loving kindness takes a lot of hard work. I have started that journey and with some support I hope I find a better way to deal with my inner critic.
This little stink bug came and visited my altar and me during my Lakshmi meditation practice tonight. She just walked over the floor, somehow managed to climb on the edge of an tantra image and on to my Durga statue during my mantras.
The message of a stink bug? "Stink Bug aids with clarifying dreams, visions and insights. She can show the connections between seemingly separate unrelated events with heightened intuition. Pay attention to your instincts about people, situations and circumstances. She can demonstrate the order in which things are done, designating each level in the process of metamorphosis. Increased sensitivity to what is hidden and reading between the lines occurs with Stink Bug medicine. She can be a sharp communicator getting to the point. Are you being direct? She helps protect and shield energy and emotions when needed. She teaches the balance of concealment and surfacing.
Stink Bug will guide in the proper use and balance of the positive and negative attributes of what is psychically sensed as well as what is physically sensed in your surroundings. Stink Bug medicine shows how to transform and shed what is no longer needed."

Today, I changed the offerings at the temple and attended the puja.
If five years ago someone had told me I'd be spending a Saturday night like this, I don't think I would have believed them.

🌸⚜️Sacred Self Care⚜️🌸
Over the past several years I have discovered the absolutely necessity of self-care in my daily rituals. My favorite self-care practice recently has been self-massage. With the intensity of this eclipse portal, I've been feeling the codes & upgrades all being received through my physical anatomy & specifically my muscles. Taking time to drop in & rub my body with delicious, healing salves has been incredibly helpful in the processing of all this transformation. This simple daily practice facilitates deep reflection & integration. As I massage out the physical kinks, my worries & blockages effortlessly dissolve as well! It's a really yummy way for me to connect & align my physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual bodies!
.
Today was particularly excellent because I had the opportunity to practice many of my favorite self-care rituals. Yoga, dance, gentle exercise, mirror gazing, & journaling in the sun. Feeling ever so blessed by this path that I walk & all the magick & beauty of this world. 🌞🌻🐝✨
.
I would love to be a part of the Jade Temple Online Initiation so that I could learn more tools to deepen my Yoni egg practice. The healing & activation my egg has brought into my field is incredible! However I'm also feeling that I'm ready to spiral a bit deeper & see what else I can unearth! It would also be lovely to have more gems of wisdom (specific to the Taoist Feminine Arts) to pass along in the many Wombmyn's Circles & workshops that I hold. β€πŸŒΉπŸ”»πŸ₯š .
Sisters, check out @shaktitemplearts & her many offerings to help deepen your self care & devotional practices! An online Jade Temple Initiation is about to begin & there is an opportunity for you to win a scholarship for tuition! πŸ¦‹πŸŒˆβœ¨

Durga is both beautiful snd powerful. Embodying the collective energy (shakti) of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma, she is both derivative from the male divinities and the true source of their inner power. She slays with a gentle smile. .

What an INCREDIBLE program with Swami Ramakrishna last night! He is so humble, so blissful and so rooted in His Path and Dharma. These types of programs really anchor you deeply into your own Spiritual Path, they pick you back up, they fuel you forward.
His Satsang was all about being the change you want to see instead of complaining about what is happening outside. Spot on!

I am very grateful for my long friendship and association with Swamiji, stemming back to even before He received Sannyas. I am so thankful He graced us with His Presence and lifted us up to the Heavens. It was such a great honor, pleasure, privilege and opportunity for me to do seva.

I am also thankful for all that traveled down from San Ramon to be here and assist with the music.

Twas a night to remember.... Jai AMMA AMRITEŚVARI AMRITΔ€NANDEŚVARΔͺ MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
