It is a way for people to connect with themselves shed their Pride and Self-Righteousness and achieve self and world peace
Why My Puja?
In our fully digitally plugged-in socially-networked lives our connect with Divinity is lagging behind.
The occasional Temple visits and Puja rituals are often missed as they are deemed inconvenient or
often impossible just because of lack of time. Yet we have not completely forgotten about religion. Let us understand this better by looking at what the term 'MyPuja' means to various people.
Puja the Inner Sanctum:
Most people still have a special sacred place within the privacy of their home called the "Puja" (an inner sanctum or Puja room if you are well to do!).
People keep various Idols, Pictures, Holy Texts in this "Puja" location and it carries a special place in their minds as it helps them establish a level of calmness and closeness to divinity.
Puja the Ritual:
The term Puja also denotes the Ritual of engaging with divinity by way of praying, making offerings, incantations and recitals.
The digital equivalent of this experience either does not exist or is not powerful enough for people to feel the closeness with a digital Puja or allow them to perform the Ritual digitally. In our busy lives where the Temple visits and the daily Puja rituals are often skipped, it is our aim to help people bridge this gap.
Yet we spend countless hours on Social Networks and feel close to real people who we interact with Digitally by sending them messages in 140 characters or even less!
Clearly, there is a need for us to bring religion, culture and its related social interactions in a meaningful and powerful way into the digital world.
How are we doing it?
We have firstly defined 'Core Elements' that are needed for Religion and Culture preservation and its proper translation into the digital world with as less loss as possible due to the limitations of available mediums or interactions.
These elements are Portability, Simplicity, Quality, Interactivity and Personality.
Ability to Pray, Connect, Wish, Share anywhere anytime the same way a person would do it when they were by their Home Puja or Temple.
Our aim is to build a Simple Interface to divinity that is intuitive and easy to use and requires no learning i.e. it works in ways very similar to what we are already used to.
Relevant and Useful content is more important than the quantity of the content you get. Less is More. We endeavor to constantly improve quality, whether it is purity of physical ingredients needed for Puja or the highest quality Online experience.
Each Individual is unique. People often seek their personality, who they are or who they aspire to be, in the God(s) or Spiritial Leader(s) they follow. Our aim is to promote adequate personalization so as to enable the people to connect with the digital experience deeply.
The Puja rituals allow people to interact with the images/idols and other cultural artefacts in very interesting ways. Our aim is to 'provide means' to so people can peform these interactions both Physical and Digital with the benefits of Portability, Simplicity, Quality and Personality.
With the above defined 'Core Elements' we work on both physical and digital fronts to provide a superior Puja experience.
