Pooja loosely translates as “blessing”. I just got a new bike and decided to perform pooja on it.
This has been done outside small Ganesh temple (God of Luck and Protection) using incense from the temple, red henna, lemons and a coconut. It was broken into pieces at the very end of the ritual. Pooja mantras were played in the temple throughout.
Bindu marks left on all four sides of the bike.
Pooja is widely used on all newly acquired material things to charge them with protective energy.
