Who are the People to Perform Puja and Homam?

What is Puja? 

The act of Worship, done with the reverence towards the Supreme Being is called Puja. It is also the process of invoking the deity, offering them a high seat, providing them with food and water, it is the imagination that the really our chosen deity is right in front of us to receive and bless our worship. Puja and worship are mainly dependent on our faith. For example, a stone is of no value and has no power in it, the stone is turned into the chosen deity, only because of our faith and belief. Worships and Puja are not only done in temples but at homes, not only in the community but also individually. The puja and worship are a part of our daily life, we may not be able to sit down and worship Lord in the prescribed manner, but every day we take the name of God that itself is his/ her worship. 

What is Homam?

Homam also called as Havan, are the ritualistic worship that involves offering to Gods, through the medium of Fire.  Of the 5 elements that make this universe, fire is one of them. It is believed that Fire has the ability to transmit energy and can reach far and beyond. Fire mainly cleanses the environment and also kills all the bacteria’s in the atmosphere. Since it has great outreach, it helps in reaching to Gods with our prayer. The smoke that is transmitted from the homam if consumed is considered beneficial because, it kills all the germs inside us, and at the same time it reduces our ego and negative thoughts, at the same time fills us with positivity.
