Shivoham Shiva Poojas for Believers

Prayer is a way of communicating, connecting and bonding with God. It is a reaffirmation of faith; a celebration in praise of Divinity; an expression of gratitude; a confession; a disclosure of our struggles to God as we seek His Grace and blessings; a plea for mercy, forgiveness, divine intervention; or simply an expression of love, devotion and Bhakti for God.

Om Namah Shivaya Poojas in Temple

At the Shivoham Shiva Temple, priests explain the meaning of each prayer that is performed so that the devotees understand what is being said. Written cards are also handed to those who pray with the meaning of the prayer explained in vernacular languages so that devotees may remember and cherish the value of the words of the prayer, long after they have left the temple.

For Believers, who stand strong in their faith, there are beautiful and soulful prayers, the Om Namah Shivaya poojas that can only strengthen their faith. Each Pooja signifies a purpose, a wish or thanksgiving.
