Description: This book seeks to capture the essence and reverence of the Hindu puja without stressing superstitious beliefs. True to the Hindu way of life, events such as a change of season, the welcoming of a new bride, the honoring of a husband or those who have departed from this earth take on the significance of religious custom revolving around a devata. The spontaneous joy generated by these festivals along with the solemnity of the accompanying bhajans, prayer ceremonies and rituals are captured in graphic detail.
