Swami Tejomayananda On Various Forms Of Worship

Worship of the Lord may be of a physical nature like puja, or serving the society as a service to the Lord. At the level of speech, one worships by singing the glories of the Lord. At the mental level, by thinking of His divine form, qualities and sports.

Repetition of the name of the Lord, either loudly, softly or mentally is called Japa. The chanting may be of various names or a single name of the Lord.

The above practices are meant to make the mind pure, subtle and concentrated and strong; as well as prepare the mind for meditation and should be practiced diligently.

If you do not have puja materials to do the worship, you can conceive them in your mind and in your thought; you offer it to the Lord.
