With Periyava and Swami’s blessings, I have been doing panchayathana puja for quite some time now. Most of the time, I take my puja with me whenever I travel and ask someone at home to do it if I couldn’t take it.
This time, I decided to take the puja with me and as Mahaperiyava says in Dheivathin Kural, Adi Acharya had designed to keep this puja simple to do by all of us. Carrying those swamis in the form of stones is easy and getting flowers and doing a neiveidhyam with raisins or nuts is very easy. Even while we are on the move, we can spare 20-30 Mts to do this puja before we start our day. There are days that I did the puja in the evening too. I normally do rudrabishekam if I have lot of time or do a shorter version if I dont have time etc.
I am sharing only t to explain how easy it is to do this. Last photo is taken during abishekam. the previous photo gives you an idea of all small boxes that I carry for sandhanam, kungumam, akshadhai etc. Please note that the arrangement of the stones and the vel is due to very small cup I carried – at home, they would kept as per Shiva Panchayathana guidelines. I know what all comments would come for this 🙂
BTW – If you are interested in starting panchayathana puja, please contact Sri Sarma Sastrigal, who has initiated this puja to 100s of people in Tamilnadu. Pl google for his contact information.
Aum Nama Shivaya!
