Ancestral Blessing Puja

ANCESTRAL BLESSING, NIGHTLY: 

As with most pagan paths, we each have multi-faith backgrounds which we honour in our practices, as well as the beauty of new traditions introduced through our studies.  This is an example of how I continue to honour one aspect of my family’s spirituality each night:  

Supplies for performing Aarti:

Offetory Bowl – Diya – Rose Water – Peacock Feather bundle to bathe the statues.  

After Green Tara Puja, bring the Hindu Altar Diya over and use the Green Tara diya, to light it. 

Geen Tara, Devine Mother, you have been known by many faces, many names and many races. In honour of the  unconditional love and guidance bestowed on my Mama and Papa, I offer Arati and, I give my thanks.

 Place the remaining rose water in the offering pan, recite the following as you circle it with the Diya 3x:

May the light of the Devine cast out all impurities within: 

Place the diya in the centre of the rose water and perform aarti at the Hindu Altar for each Diety:
