Many ceremonies and festival celebrations, as well as darshans and meditations, are held in Amma
Bhagavan's Oneness Temple. The Kalash Puja (prayer ritual) is just one example.
It's a long ceremony promoting health and vitality, conducted by Cosmic Beings in the Temple, so
this viewing is divided into three videos. In the first one a Oneness Guide explains how to participate
in this puja in your own home.
From the Oneness Temple, Acharya Samadarshini Tells
How to Conduct the Kalash Puja at Home
The traditional Kalash puja pot is copper and filled with water, a ring of mango leaves, and topped
with a coconut. The one at the right was used in the Oneness Temple ceremony.
It isn't absolutely necessary to have an official copper Kalash pot when conducting the puja at
home. Just use a clean glass or bowl filled with water, or use some of these Offering Bowls.

I remember being sprinkled with sacred water from a puja ceremony at the Oneness University,
dripped from mango leaves as shown in the latter part of the above video. It felt like I was being hit with
droplets of liquid fire! --P. J.
