Pooja sankalpa for USA

Doing pooja sankalpa in USA differs from doing pooja sankalpa in baratha bhoomi. We cant refer baratha varshe Jambu dveepe dhandakaranya etc as if from our original sankalpa

any pooja sankalpa comprises two parts:

  1. The place where we are doing
  2. The date we are doing

The first part gets changed because of the location. The location details would be different.

Sankalpa:

For any pooja just fill up the samvathsara, maasa, paksha and the festival or pooja deity in preranaya and prithyartham and pooja/festival and type of pooja before dhyanam.

In general you can fill up as sri lakshmi narayana preranaya and sri  lakshmi narayana preethyartham

  • Samvathsare – Year
  • Uttara aayane (Jan 14 – July 13) or Dakshin aayane (July 14 – Jan 13)
  • Varsha rithou – season
  • Maase – Month
  • Paksha – Shukla/Krishna
  • Thithow – Thithi

There is a long debate exists that we are not suppose to cross ocean. once we did , there is no point in pooja and sankalpa in a foreign land. For just that reason, we should not leave our traditions and practices behind.But I believe Something is better than Nothing. with all the devotion and faith in Sri Hari, we must continue pooja and our culture throughout.
