Sri Vidya Puja & Homa

“Vidya” in Sanskrit means knowledge. “Sri” in Sanskrit means enlightenment. Sri Vidya in Sanskrit refers to the stream of Vedic Worship based on mother energy, which showers true knowledge and helps you achieve the ultimate state of enlightenment. This is one of the most powerful spiritual practices from Vedic tradition. Vedic Rishis mentioned several times that only those blessed souls will have the opportunity to perform or even be in the space where the Sri Vidya ritual happens!! Mother’s energy is overflowing with compassion and love. Relating to the existential energy as a Mother is the most loving and easiest way, which brings tremendous benefits when done with deep devotion!

Sri Vidya Puja

Sri Vidya Puja is not a ritual. It is a deep meditation. Sri Vidya Puja is the easiest way to connect to the all-pervading existential energy. The Sri Vidya puja is performed to thoroughly cleanse the house’s space and heal those present at the physical and mental planes.

The Sri Vidya puja is performed with the Maha Meru, a mystical construction representing the Cosmos. It has subtle energies polarized and embedded in it in the form of letters of the alphabet, each of which represents a chant, the attributed Deity, the carriage or vehicle on which the Deity sits, the herb or tree to which it belongs, and the corresponding body part of the human beings which it controls. Therefore, the Maha Meru represents the whole Universal Energy and the energy in every animate and inanimate object.

The Maha Meru, in turn, also represents the human body with 43 major energy centers. Only when all these 43 energies merge into one does a person become enlightened. Various forms of mother energy presided over these 43 subtle energy centers. Sri Vidya Puja is to invoke the presence of these 43 forms of mother energy, thereby integrating the fragmented energies to achieve the ultimate eternal bliss!

All problems in our lives are a projection of the blockage of one of these 43 energy centers. Sri Vidya Puja cleanses these energy centers with Chants of “Bijas” or syllables corresponding to each energy center. The chants, in turn, invoke the intelligence in the individual, cleanse these subtle energy centers, and integrate them.

It can remove any cause of disharmony in any part of the human body, environment, and family life if its potency is properly utilized. The Maha Meru transmits the Divine Energy wherever it is installed and properly sanctified. Sanctifying it and deriving its benefit is the purpose of the Sri Vidya puja.

Sri Vidya encompasses nine comprehensive transforming stages, which are named Avaranaas.

The word “Aavarana” in Sanskrit means screen. One attains the immense benefits of the Puja by transcending the nice screens or the Avaranaas.

(1)     Trilokya Mohana Chakra – This Aavarana bestows tremendous fame, charisma with intelligence

(2)     Sarvaashaa Paripooraka Chakra – This Aavarana fulfills all desires!

(3)     Sarva Samkshobhana Chakra – This Aavarana dispels all fears!

(4)     Sarva Soubhaagya Daayaka Chakra – This Aavarana bestows all wealth and prosperity

(5)     Sarvaartha Saadhaka Chakra – This Aavarana helps you accomplish all your goals!

(6)     Sarva Rakshaakara Chakra – This aavarana offers intelligence for ultimate protection

(7)     Sarva Rogahara Chakra – This Aavarana heals everything in the puja space!

(8)     SarvaSiddhipradaChakra- This Aavarana bestows tremendous creativity and leadership

(9)     SarvaAnandamaya Chakra – This Chakra brings intense happiness, peace, and prosperity!

Sri Vidya, an intense self-transforming technique performed in the presence of an energy field of living Master, has a profound impact! The syllables chanted in the Puja become alive and powerful. The Master’s Energy field becomes a catalyst for this whole transforming process to happen. When Puja is performed, the worshipper, the worship process, and the worshipped should become one, or the trinity should become unity. This happens naturally with no effort in the presence of the Master!

The science behind the realization of prayers through Vedic worship can be explained with an example – anything kept in front of a projector light will be seen on the screen. You will see the temple if you keep a slide of a temple scene. If you keep a slide of an actor or actress you will see their age. Similarly, any thought kept in front of concentrated energy will become a reality.

When Puja is performed in the presence of an energy field of an enlightened Master, there is an intense energy flow. Intense potential energies created by “bijas” or syllables, which become alive in Masters’s Presence, charge the whole space and keep it reverberating. When you are present in this space and create a thought or wish, your whole body and mind will be tuned to that thought, so naturally, it will become a reality.

Sri Vidya Homa is a fire ritual of the above process and an intense spiritual practice that becomes a powerful meditation technique when performed with devotion. We invoke the cosmic energy and visualize it in the fire.  Offerings to the deity are offered through the fire.
