Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events.Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, and has its roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and some – such as the Indians, Chinese, and Maya – developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th–17th century BCE Mesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe.
In Sanskrit ‘puja’ is defined as “purnaat jayate iti puja”, which means ‘that which is born (jayate – ja) out of fullness (purnaat – pu)’. So puja means the spontaneous happening which is born out of the fullness and contentment of the Self.
Puja is an innocent playful process reciprocating the supreme love of nature. The state of mind with which the puja is performed, the various materials (samagri) used and the chanting (mantras) which is done during the puja, all have a profound effect on the environment. The vibrations purify the place and people present.Puja is a meditation, it is a yoga. The feeling of oneness of the worshipper and the worshipped, is the realization of the true nature of the Self.
