A PUJA (poo-ja) is an ancient ritual practiced around the world. It is an offering commonly found in India to give thanks, and to recognize our place on this planet. The purpose of a PUJA is to keep a thread of continuity between our physical, outer world, and the subtle inner worlds that lie within us. Much like music, it is a vehicle that allows us an opportunity to give, and to receive. Music is a form of energy that lives inside and outside of us, both consciously and unconsciously. Its energy can fill us with emotion and lift us to a place where we forget about our daily worries and responsibilities. With this in mind, the band PUJA has come to life!
