Pooja is a form of worship done to establish a divine connection with God. Flowers form an integral part in worship of God. Flowers come from prakriti or nature and are offered to God in thanksgiving.
Flowers attract the divine subtle particles in space through their petals and charge the atmosphere with spiritual vibrations. Specific flowers have the specific ability to attract the specific deities’ principle. The color and the fragrance of the flower possess the power to attract the principles of the deity and this benefits the worshipper.
When one offers fresh flowers to the deity with a spirit of surrender and devotion, it helps to increase the positive energies or the sattwic energies in a person. The deity becomes gratified and bestows the blessings of health, wealth and prosperity.
