How do we conduct Krishna Pooja Program?

Pooja is done as a form of Bhakti Yoga, which means “devotion.” Pooja can be done at home daily and also as an elaborate ceremony. There are as many as twenty-seven separate steps for formal pooja ceremonies that include offering water to symbolically bathe the honored deity, offerings of sweets and fruits, and a light ritual called Abhishekam wherein water is poured from one small vessel on the head of the deity's idol. A very simplified and informal version can be done with sincerity that will convey our devotion and respect for this ritual and invite the blessings and guidance for which it is designed.

Devakī paramānandaṃ kṛiṣṇam vande jagadgurum

Your children will learn how to do Krishna Pooja by themselves in a fun way. As they see other children performing the pooja, they get motivated to follow them. The pooja contains the following 27 steps:
