Car Puja Guide - Step 1
Car Puja Guide
The owner of the car participates in the puja with the pujari, as others watch the proceedings. In the photo (above) I am with the pujari (to my right) and my mom (to my left). The first thing I had to do was accept 'holy water' into my right hand and wash my hands for the puja. This was repeated three times. In temples, it is a rule to accept things into the right hand. I do this by placing my left hand under my right hand.

In these pujas, usually the person, who the puja is being done for, doesn't know what is going on next, unless that person has studied it beforehand. This is normally true, even and especially in Hindu weddings! Hence, they are so chaotic.
