Pooja is the process of worshipping God with pure mind and heart. Pooja is

 

 

done everyday at home and in temples. Those who know the procedure of

 

pooja will do it at home everyday in the morning, and some people do it in the

 

evening too. The duration of a basic pooja is anywhere from 5 minutes to 3

 

hours. It all depends upon the type of pooja one performs. In the temples

 

regular pooja is done in the morning and also in the evening.

 

 

In addition to regular pooja many special poojas take place in the temples

 

during the day and evening. Special poojas are performed on the days of

 

festivals like Diwali, Ram Navami, Dassehra, Janmashtami, Ganesh Chathurthi, etc.

 

 

Mainly a pooja is of two types - A Simple Pooja and Detailed Pooja.

 

 

The beauty is that God would be pleased by the quality of the pooja and not

 

 

the time frame of the pooja. So, a devotee can receive the grace of God by

 

performing either of these poojas according to his/her capacity.
