Step by step Puja instructions for the Beginner Shiva Puja Book
The Shiva Puja “Pu” means merit, and “JA” means to give birth. Therefore, Puja is that which gives birth to merit. In our tradition, the highest merit is the privilege to sit in the presence of God. Puja is an ancient system of worship designed to guide the mind to this experience.
The perfect place to begin your practice of Shiva worship is with the Beginners’ Shiva Puja.
In preparation for Shiva Ratri, Shree Maa requested Swamini Kamalananda to share a step-by-step guide to performing the Beginner Shiva Puja Book. This is a step-by-step video that gives detailed instructions on how to perform a basic Shiva Puja.
Swamini Kamalananda explains the general principles of Puja, the precise procedure and materials used in Beginner Shiva Puja (which anyone can perform), and slowly and clearly recites each mantra of the text.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn Puja from a senior disciple of Shree Maa and Swamiji, in a clear and lucid manner, for anyone wondering how to get started with Puja and especially the worship of Lord Shiva.
