Third Stage

Then we come to the third stage of our puujaa ritual. The maNDala brahmana upanishhad explains the spiritual significance of the sixteen phased offerings to the God invoked and installed in the idol or image or photo during the puujaa.

The sixteen offerings are made in five steps.

First Step

the 1st 3 phases are called the dhyaana seat. "tasya niShTha dhyaanaH". When we are merged in it without any other thought or feeling it is called meditation or dhyaana. We chant

1. dhyaayaami God or Goddess to reside in the idol or     image or photo for the time being, so that the spiritual     forrce may flow thru the medium of the idol etc. towards     all the people assembled.
2. aavaahayaami
3. aasanam samarpayaami
