Pujas & Their Purpose & Benefits

     What is the Correct Day to Perform A Puja

There has been a lot of confusion regarding when is a good time to do a specific puja and wether your puja will be done on the right day and so on. Usually  pundits and hindu priests will tell a yagman that a  a specific  puja has to be done a specific day or else the puja would not be blessed. This is incorrect and misleading. If such is the case tnen why do all the temples do all the pujas on sunday morning?  Nowadays hindu some priests do pujas according to their own convenience. They do not check wether its a good dya or time to do a puja, but rather they do it according to appointment. This is not good either because  certain days and times and months when a puja is done the results of blessing will take longer.  Some priests may tell a yagman that he needs to do a specific puja every year....this not true!. It is good to do a puja every year but ..does a car break down in the same place every year?...so also does a person have the same problems in their life every year.? Of course not!!...when a person have problems with money they would have to do laxmi puja, when they have  education poblems a saraswaty puja will be needed, and  when a woman has marriage problems a shiva puja is needed. As you can see the pujas are done every year according to the need. If you wish to perform a specic puja every year consult with your hindu priest .  Such a priest must have knowledge of vedic astrology or jyotish,  if not  such a priest will not be able to tell what kind of puja is required for you to do.                                                                                                                            

Usually any puja can be done anytime or any day because prayer to god can never be bad.....however  if a puja is done at at certain times, certain results can be obtained and the benefits can be increased if its done at the most auspicious time. How does a person which is the most auspicious time for a puja?... Well, here is a simple table that may guide  you to know if your puja is being done at a good time.  The day you perform a puja will determine what is your desire for that puja, and what blessings you will recieve, the time of your puja is auspicous according to your birth time and so on...
