Idol or Image of Deity: The focal point of any puja altar is the idol or image of the deity you wish to worship. Depending on your tradition or belief, this could be a statue, painting, or photograph. Choose a representation that resonates with you and your family.
Altar Cloth or Covering: A clean and sacred cloth is used to drape the altar. It adds a touch of reverence and keeps the space tidy. Use a cloth that is significant to your culture or religion.
Incense Sticks (Agarbatti) and Holders: Incense sticks are lit during the puja to create a fragrant atmosphere and symbolize the offering of prayers. Ensure you have an incense holder to place them safely.
Diya or Lamp: Lighting a diya (oil lamp) is a symbol of dispelling darkness and inviting divine light. Choose from various materials like clay, brass, or silver. Do not forget to keep extra wicks and oil handy.
Flowers and Flower Garland: Fresh flowers are offered as a symbol of beauty and purity. They infuse the atmosphere with positivity. A flower garland can be draped around the deitys image for an ornate touch.
Dhoop or Incense Cones: Dhoop (incense cones) produce a pleasant aroma and are believed to purify the surroundings. They are an alternative to incense sticks.
Water and Panchamrita: Water is offered for cleansing the deitys image and for sipping during the puja. Panchamrita, a mixture of milk, yogurt, honey, ghee, and sugar, is used as an offering.
Bell: A small bell is rung before and after the puja to announce the commencement and conclusion of the worship. Its sound is considered auspicious.
Rice and Kumkum (Vermilion): Rice is used to shower blessings, while kumkum is applied as a tilak (mark) on the deitys forehead and symbolizes devotion.
Camphor (Kapoor):Camphor is lit and waved in front of the deity. Its fragrant smoke is believed to carry prayers to the heavens.
Prasad:Offerings of food, fruits, or sweets are presented to the deity and later distributed as prasad to the devotees.
Book of Scriptures: If you follow specific scriptures or prayers, keep a holy book nearby for reference during the puja.
