KUMKUM (100 g)
Kumkum is one of the most sacred and auspicious signs of Hindu culture. It is applied on the forehead – the channel through which humankind opens spiritually to the divine. It is made using dried and powdered turmeric mixed with slaked lime. It turns the rich yellow powder into a red colour.SHAKAR (200 g)
Shakar or dainty sugar crystals lovingly offered to the lord and distributed to devotees as prasad makes your rituals only sweeter. Mama Handicraft Daily Puja Kit contains 200 g of shakar you and your family can enjoy at the end of any ceremony. Shakar as prasad can be kept for days for far-off families and friends. Prasad is considered a blessing from god. People receive prasad as return gifts in temples, but little do they know that they are being showered upon with grace. Prasad and theerth (holy water) are said to be imbued with the positive energies of the deity. Consuming this consecrated food transfers those sacred energies within, and in turn blesses any task we endeavour.KAPUR (30 Pc)
Camphor is a by-product of tree Cinnamomum camphora. It is made from its bark through a distilling process. It is extensively used in all religious activities in India. People believe burning camphor signifies the act of union with god; it represents our inherent tendencies (vaasanas). When lit by the fire of knowledge, they thereafter burn themselves out completely, leaving no trace of the ego which otherwise keeps us separate from god. In many parts of India, the flame is believed to drive ghosts, evil forces, and negative energies away. Mama Handicraft offers 30 pieces of this white-coloured pod for 30 uninterrupted days’ worth of puja.DHOOP (100 g)

In puja rituals, after you offer flowers to god, the next step is to light this incense. It is believed to remove stale energies and invite positive energy. Dhoop is not only used during puja, but also regularly to purge the air.AGARBATTI (100 g)

This is used for fragrance, which symbolically suggests the presence and love of the deities. It has an important role to play in meditation and aromatherapy as well.
