What is Guru Pooja?
Guru Pooja is a certain science of using chants and offerings to manifest a powerful experience in your living space. This particular Guru Pooja is known as Shodashopachara, which refers to sixteen ways of welcoming a Guru. Guru Pooja is offered to a lamp as a symbol of all the great masters, regardless of what culture or religion they belong to.
Guru Pooja Training is conducted as a 4-day residential program at the Isha Yoga Center, India, at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences, USA, and more occasionally at various other centers across the world.
Completion of the Inner Engineering Program (including the Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya) is a prerequisite for attending this program.
Isha Yoga Advanced Programs include Bhava Spandana Program, Shoonya Intensive, and Samyama, which allow an individual to experience life beyond the limitations of the body and mind.
Learning the Guru Pooja has been an awakening experience for me. Never before have I felt so peaceful singing anything. It is truly an immense blessing to have had the opportunity to learn it.
When I do the Guru Pooja, something within me becomes very fluid and pleasant.And this quality lingers within me throughout the day.Be it my yoga practices or any activity that I do, everything becomes so sweet,deep and nourishing for my growth as a human being.
