LIST OF CONTENTS
KUMKUM (25 G)

A sacred symbol of Hindu tradition and heritage, kumkum is fine vermillion powder used to worship Hindu gods. It is more widely used in the worship of goddesses. Women even wear kumkum on their forehead with much pomp and gaiety. This famous symbol of Hindu culture is considered auspicious. Traditionally, the dot on the forehead signifies inner wisdom or the place of the ‘ajna chakra’ – the third eye. The source of kumkum is turmeric or saffron. Dried turmeric sticks are ground with slaked lime which changes the yellow into a gorgeous red kumkum.

ABIL (25 G)

Abil is a holy white powder used in the worship of Hindu goddesses. Abil is also used in several rituals such as marriages and navgrah puja as an offering to deities. Ever wondered what goes in the making of rangoli? That’s right – abil. Thought to bring good luck, it is a regular feature in auspicious occasions such as festivals and cultural milestones.

GULAL (25 G)

Gulal is a pink powder used in ritualistic worship, especially of Hindu goddesses. This powder also symbolises inner wisdom. It is said to attract the deity’s principle and bless those who perform the worship. The Shakti (divine energy) principle in the universe is known to be attracted to the subtle fragrant particles generated by gulal. It is also said that energetic waves, enhanced with divine consciousness, become mobile because of gulal.

SINDOOR (25 G)

Sindoor is a red powder used during puja and often worn by married women on their forehead as an indication of their marital status.

HALDI (25 G)

Haldi has been in use in Hindu culture since time immemorial. During the Vedic period, turmeric was known as the ‘golden spice’ or the ‘spice of life’ as it was associated with the sun. Particular significance was attributed to the bright yellow and saffron spice as the sun and sun gods were a focal point of worship and ritual at the time. Turmeric was used for fertility and spiritual purification. Worshipers use turmeric paste to anoint statues and images of Hindu deities in religious ceremonies. Turmeric also represents purity. Orange represents the sun, sacrifice, and courage, as well as the solar plexus chakra.

CHUNARI (1 PC)

Offering chunari to a goddess is an age-old Indian tradition, signifying deep reverence towards the devi in all her forms. Chunari is usually laid down before installing the idol. Covering a goddess’s statue or photo with chunari is also widely in practice.

The cloth is an integral part of festivities. It is draped on the head and shoulders, like a scarf, by women during religious functions, ceremonies, and prayer rituals. It is usually made in bright colours such as red. Mama Handicraft Durga Puja Kit comes with a fancy, bright chunari sure to add a colourful touch to any festivity.  

DHOOP (25 G)

Wake up to a holy environment every day with Mama Handicraft Dhoop. Light one of the cones and invite fresh energy into your home. Dhoop is lit during puja – after offering flowers to god – to cleanse the air. Dhoop contains powdered fragrant wood mixed with herbs and ghee. Did you know that it is named after the East Indian tree whose bark gives out a pleasant fragrance when burnt?

In the olden days, dhoop was offered by spreading dasangam on burnt coal. Dasangam is made from the dust of 10 herbs including sandalwood, eagle-wood, Himalayan cedar, Indian frankincense, and white pall.

KARPUR (5 PC)

Karpur are fragrant camphor pods used in ritual burning. They are used in traditional aarthi. Known air purifiers, they have a heavenly aroma and are said to drive negative energies away. They hold a unique place in Hindu tradition. When lit, they burn completely without leaving any trace – a metaphor for the dissolution of the ego and union with god. Camphor represents our inherent tendencies, or ego, which keep us separate. When it is lit by the fire of knowledge, our tendencies burn, thereby uniting us with god. Camphor is distilled from the bark of the tree Cinnamomum Camphora.

KOPARA (25 G)

Kopara is dry coconut. Coconut is a regular feature in traditional Hindu rituals, considered sacred and auspicious. Coconut trees are often even prayed to. Dry coconut is used as an offering to deities, especially during the final oblation (purna-ahuti) of any homa/yagna. It is filled with sugar and ghee, and is then closed with a sacred thread, before being offered to the fire.

KAMAL KAKDI (25 G)

Kamal kakdi is dried lotus seed. Lakshmi is also called Kamalvaasini – one who sits on a lotus. This is why during mantra chanting of Goddess Lakshmi, a special rosary made of lotus seeds is used. It is said the goddess is easily appeased if one uses this rosary for chanting and she bestows upon them wealth and comforts. The lotus seed strengthens devotion and opens the heart for divine grace.

SHAKAR (25 G)

Shakar or dainty sugar crystals lovingly offered to the lord and distributed to devotees as prasad makes your rituals only sweeter. 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. 

KHAREK (25 G)

Kharek is dried date, used as prasad for deities.Prasad is a devotional food offering made to a god, later shared among devotees. Traditionally, in return, blessings of the deity are sought and sometimes, the fulfilment of a wish. Prasad is considered to be sacred and all who receive it are believed to be blessed. Prasad and theerth (holy water) are said to be imbued with the positive energies of the deity. Consuming this transfers sacred energies, blessing any task we undertake.

NADA CHADI (15 M)

Nada chadi or mouli is a sacred red cotton thread roll used by Hindus. The thread, an integral part of any puja, is used as an offering of cloth to the deity. Normally, it is tied around a kalash – copper tumbler filled with water, with mango leaves and a coconut covering the mouth. Kalash represents the shrine. Before the puja begins, the red thread is tied around the wrist of family members. This is akin to carrying blessings from god.

SUPARI (25 G)

Supari is considered auspicious in Hinduism and is used along with betel leaf in religious ceremonies and while honouring individuals. It is also a vital ingredient used in food offering for god. It is regarded as an auspicious symbol of hospitality, and denotes a moral, social, and legal commitment.

Here’s an interesting titbit – the nut symbolises hard, coarse qualities of the ego that must be surrendered at the altar of God, thus leaving the soft, pure ones behind.

AGARBATTI (30 G POUCH)

Agarbatti are incense sticks used since time immemorial by people all over the world for ritualistic worship. They are symbolically lit for the pure love of the deity. These fragrant wands are known to purify the air and make the atmosphere serene. The soothing smell helps the devotee calm their mind and meditate peacefully. It is thus also used in aromatherapy to prevent bad energies from entering one’s home.

CHANDAN POWDER (25 G)

Chandan or sandalwood is an important puja item, used to worship deities by applying tilak on their forehead. After offering to deities, devotees apply it between their eyebrows or on the forehead. It is believed to cool the nervous system and to stimulate spiritual energy. It is used in almost all sacred ceremonies and is known to purify holy places.

ROSE WATER (100 G)

Gulab jal or rose water is an important element in Hindu rituals and puja – as it is believed to have purifying properties. The fragrant essence has long been a part of Hinduism – having been used as an ingredient in Ayurvedic medicines. Refresh your senses and awaken your soul with this delicate extract of the rose flower.

PHOTO (SMALL)

The image of Goddess Durga also comes included in this puja kit, which you can place at the centre while carrying out the rituals. You can also keep the image in your prayer area/room for daily worship. Awaken the devotion in your soul by paying obeisance to this embodiment of Shakti.

ASSOCIATED FESTIVAL/OCCASION

Durga, a form of Shakti, is the goddess of power, success, and victory in all aspects. Navdurga, the name itself talks about her nine different forms – Śhailaputrī, Brahmachāriṇī, Chandraghaṇṭā, Kuṣhmāṇḍā, Skandamātā, Kārtyāyanī, Kālarātrī, Mahāgaurī, and Siddhidātrī. These forms are together worshipped during Navratri celebration in autumn each year. Navratri is amongst the most important Hindu festivals. This auspicious festival is celebrated with great zeal and devotion throughout the country. The literal meaning of Navratri is nine auspicious nights. The goddess of power is worshipped to seek her blessings and protection from any threat. The devotees ask for peace and prosperity. Durga is said to have supremacy over creation, preservation, and destruction of the universe.

HOW IS IT OBSERVED?
PUJA VIDHI

For performing Navratri Puja, wake up at sunrise. This time is considered auspicious. After bath and donning fresh clothes, keep a lamp to the left of the deity. Try to light the 'Akhand Jyoti'. Keep in mind that you should not leave the house vacant if you are lighting the 'Akhand Jyoti'. Someone must stay at home at all times. On the right side of the idol, keep incense sticks. Prepare yourself to do the puja with utmost devotion and concentration. Keep the kalash and coconut as well. Lay the mat and sit in an upright position in front of the deity. Light the lamp and ring the bell or blow the conch.

FOR KALASH STHAPANA

Place the kalash near the idol or picture of the deity and fill with pure water. Place mango leaves on the mouth and on top of it, a coconut. Tie nada chadi around the neck of the kalash.

Sprinkle Ganga water all over the puja room. Now, offer sandalwood powder and some fresh grass to the goddess. Then, offer chunari. Place some fresh flowers in front of the goddess. Next, offer paan with a clove placed on it. If you are married, then offer two. Light agarbatti or dhoop. Perform havan using this mantra: "Om aing hreeng kleeng chamundaya vichche namah". Give ahuti for 11 times. Fold your hands and pray. At last, offer kharek and shakar and do aarthi. Sing the ‘Kshama Prarthana’ of the 13th chapter of sacred Durga Saptashati and conclude the puja. Pray with your whole heart.
