Pushpanjali Prawaha – Aim to keep Yamuna River Clean from Puja Samigri

Pushpanjali Prawaha – the flow of devotional flowers – is a new method for disposal of left over flowers and other puja samigri in Delhi by Youth Fraternity Foundation (YFF). The left over sacred puja samigri used during the worship i.e. flowers, religious cards, posters, calendars, pictures of different deities on the packets of incense sticks, clothes in sacks and plastic bags etc are thrown into Yamuna by many people and thus adding to pollution.
Youth Fraternity Foundation (YFF) is attempting to reduce the pollution caused by the left over puja samigri by educating people and also collecting the samigri thrown into Yamuna.
Youth Fraternity Foundation (YFF) is a non-profit organization and is located at Adm Off. : No 12, II Floor, Calypso Bistro, HauzKhasVillage, New Delhi – 110016.

Durga Puja Musings

Durga Puja is celebrated in honour of the victory that the Parasakthi (the Goddess of Energy immanent in the microcosm and the macrocosm) achieved over the A-sura of evil forces, as described in the Devi Mahatmyam and Devi Bhagavatham.
That Parasakthi is in everyone as the Kundalini Shakti, when this Shakti is awakened it is able to destroy the evil tendencies inside the mind; so the Durga Puja is to be dedicated by all for the propitiation of the outer as well as inner Divinity, in order that the outer and inner worlds may have peace and joy.
By means of systematic sadhana it is possible to tap the inner resources that God has endowed man with and elevate yourselves to the purer and happier realm of reality. Sathya Sai Baba
