The Gift of Puja
A puja is a gift or an offering, in the east, it’s an offering to the divine, through dieties. The way I have come to appreciate puja, is it’s an experience that invites us all to take a look at the divinity in each of us.
There came a moment during my first experience at an adorational puja, after I had been receiving for 40 minutes, that everything shifted inside of me; all the old beliefs that I would never be good enough, could never measure up melted away in the most joyous sobs I have ever felt move through me. For the first time in my life, instead of having to prove my right to exist, I felt in every cell of my body, that I WAS worthy, just because I existed.
From that point on, one of my greatest passions/missions in life is for everyone to get to experience that moment, and this Puja video offers just that opportunity.
Destin, is one of the most dedicated devotional facilitators, and it’s a pleasure and honor to get to cocreate with him on this piece.
Practice puja as a couple and find yourself tapping into some of your deepest experiences of connection and intimacy (oh, and likely have phenomenal sex afterwards, too!).
Practice puja in a group, and discover the power of opening your heart and pouring love into whatever human being is before you, even if they are a total stranger, and for no reason at all. You may not know their name. You may never see them again. And they may never do anything for you in return. You have the opportunity to practice giving for the sake of giving. Loving for the sake of loving. Love after all, is a practice. And one most of us could use more practice in.
