 MOTHER BHAVANI OF TULJAPUR

PUJAS AND FESTIVALS

One can observe certain odd traditions prevalent here in the performance of regular and occasional pujas to the Mother. Their novelty fascinates and elevates, if the probe is made and learnt the reason. As it is practised elsewhere, the deity is worshipped at four times - the first begins early in the morning with the wiping of the Mother's feet and face with wet cloth. The wet cloth then is squeezed to the last drop, and the water collected thus is given as the holy thirtha. An oddity. Then follows the offering of bread and vegetables as the dishes for breakfast. With this the first puja is over. Another oddity! And a unique feature that surprises the visitors. The afternoon pooja is called Shodasopachari. It is offered with elaborate rites, and closes with Mahanaivedya. In the evenings, arati with incense forms the main feature, followed by Prakshalana puja. Everytime after the worship, the Mother is adorned with glittering ornaments and shimmering robes. The sight detains and enthralls the beholders.
