A Puja for the Vehicles!
One day, our friend and local taxi driver Arumugam, came and said it was time for a puja for the vehicles. A puja (poo-jah) is a Hindu ritual celebration to the gods with food offerings and blessings. We decorated the vehicles of Sadhana Forest, left offerings of puffed rice, spices, fruits and tools at each vehicle, and then burned some camphor that was stuck in fruit and walked around each vehicle to bless it. Then we celebrated by eating the offerings. A good time was had by all.
