Car Puja

New vehicle is everybody’s dream, this new vehicle should be lucky for us and bring prosparity. For this we pray to gods to bless us and the vehicle. In other words Car Puja(vehicle) is a ceremony to bless the new car in the Lord’s name and keep it and us safe from any bad accidents. In Hinduism it is believed that all items should be blessed with so that it will bring wealth and prosperity. Even a car is supposed to be blessed so that it will keep us safe from any accidents. Whenever a new vehicle is purchased, puja is done before driving the car in regular use. A swastika is made in front of the car with the help of the Roli (red powder). “The Swastika” is one of the oldest emblems known to man. The term ‘Svastika’ is a fusion of the two Sanskrit words ‘Su’ (good) and ‘Asati’ (to exist), which when combined means ‘May Good Prevail’, also the word swastik is a statement of affirmation, “It is!” “Life is good!” “There is value” “There is meaning!”.thst is why in every hindu puja a swastika is prepared. Lord Ganesha is prayed to remove all the hurdles and bad luck if any from the vehicle and to keep us safe as Lord Ganesha is known as Vighna harta means the destroyer of hurdles. Also Moli (red secred thread) is tied around the steering wheel as a measure of safety. Then four lemons are placed one each under every tyre. Finally the car or the vehicles is driven over the four lemons. This is to rid the vehicle of any bad influences.
