Religious ritual practices in Hinduism are aimed to inculcate thoughts and emotions of worship and religiousness, helping to bring God and spiritual growth into the core of human life. A deeply religious Hindu is expected to carry out specific rituals throughout the day from morning to evening as components of his homeowner obligations. There are countless Hindu rituals and ritual sacrifice ceremonies. They are, nevertheless, largely concerned with sacrificial offerings to gods, beings, deceased souls, humans, and other living creatures. Everyday, weekly, monthly, and yearly offerings are made. Some offerings are made only on rare instances that happen once in a lifetime. Such offerings are aimed to be made without anticipating anything in return as a tribute to God and his representations.
Puja, dhyana, silent worship, meditation, chanting of religious texts including the Bhagavad Gita or bhajans, perusing religious books, partaking in "satsang" or attending the company of holy men, doing humanitarian activities, traveling to temples and religious sites, or reciting of some chant or the title of a particular deity are examples of traditional rituals that are currently practiced throughout many Hindu families. You will need various things that will help you conduct these rituals-
Lamps and Diyas: A diya's comforting, vibrant aura is deemed noteworthy; it symbolizes spirituality, affluence, wisdom, and intellect. Diyas signifies the glorious victory of brightness over shadows, of good triumphing over evil, and this is particularly noticeable on Diwali. As per Vastu shastra, the ghee or oil in a diya symbolizes negative energy in your psyche, whereas the wick symbolizes your Atma or soul. You detach negative energy from your soul and mind by igniting the diya.
Bells: The bell, furthermore known as Ghanta or ghanti in Sanskrit, is a crucial part of Hindu rites. We frequently chime the bell as a symbol to invoke the Gods and Goddesses prior to actually venerating the deities in temples and before commencing a puja ceremony at home. Ringing the bell emits the godly noise 'OM,' which produces significant wavelengths and sound waves all throughout the space. The bell is rung during cleansing of the deities' idols, before commencing a puja, during aarti and while making religious offerings to the gods and goddesses. The belief is that the bell is the true home of Divinities. Since it is thought to be the symbolic representation of all Divine beings and musical equipment, it ought to be played. A diversity of splendid bells that vary in style and shape are prevalent. The body of the bell symbolizes infinity, which itself is Ananta in Sanskrit, and the mouth of the ghanti is Goddess Saraswati. The bell's grip symbolizes Hanuman, Garuda, Nandi, or Chakra and is assumed to be the critical life power known as Prana Shakti.
Thalis: In each and every Hindu ritual, the puja thali is crucially significant. The puja thali is indispensable during almost all events since it contains all of the other crucial and significant components. Every one of the components maintained in the puja thali, such as fire, water, and air in the version of fragrant incense sticks, holy powders, and so forth, possess major relevance. When each of these positive energies huddle in one place, they magnify and disperse throughout the region where the worship is being conducted, filling the ambience with energy and enthusiasm and fending off all negative energy. The entire ecosystem becomes heavenly, and one senses and begins to feel in harmony.
Kalasha: The Purna-Kalasha is loved and respected as a fertility goddess or Devi in all Hindu marriage and birthing rituals. The Kalasha symbolizes materialistic items in this sense: a vessel of fertility - the earth and the womb, which enriches and replenishes life.

Q3. What should I do with Pooja
Samagri after Pooja?
not throw waste into the river which makes it polluted that is not good for the
should contact any organization that collects the puja offerings weekly/
monthly on regular basis. All biodegradable waste is used for composting so
that it will become organic manure that will enrich agricultural land that
provides food. Secondly, all the clothes that were used are also recycled and
can also take these to the nearest Temples and ask them to dispose of them
along with their materials. If
one has a garden, he can bury them in their garden and it'll get decomposed
over time. This according to me is the best way of disposal.
