Symbolism of Satyanarayan Puja

Lord Satyanarayan is depicted as the being of truth.

The true worship of Satyanarayan involves practice of truth and commitment to truth in all aspects of life.

It is a promise to god to live life truthfully and honestly because that leads to liberation.

Truth should be practiced spiritually and physically through rituals.

The Satyanarayan puja is an embodiment of this- to be true to yourself and live truthfully.

Being false leads to darkness, ignorance and suffering.

Being truthful leads to light, wisdom and eventually liberation.

Hence, Satyanarayan puja is not about a ritual to remove problems.

It is about practicing the truth as it is a purifier and leads to happiness and peace.

Satyanarayan is the combination of two words – ‘Satya’ meaning truth and ‘Narayana’ meaning the highest being.

So Satyanarayan signifies ‘the highest being that is the embodiment of truth’.

Satyanarayan puja is the worship of the Narayana form of Lord Vishnu in order to attain self-purification and blessings.

It is the easiest and most inexpensive way to worship the lord and attain his blessings.

This puja is usually performed before an auspicious occasion like marriage, inauguration of house etc.

in order to bring happiness, prosperity and well-being for the family.

The ceremony originated in Bengal as Satya Pir and was later adapted into Satyanarayan puja.

It’s a popular ceremony in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, Bengal, Orissa, Maharashtra, Assam and Goa.

Science behind Satyanarayan Puja

Satya means truthfulness, for example:

Satyamev Jayate (Truth Alone Triumphs) and Sat Chit Anand (True Bliss Consciousness).

Again, Satya,

Tap (Penance or Austerity),

Pavitrata (Purity), Daya (Compassion) and Daan (Charity) are the limbs of Yoga. Similarly,

the Mool Mantra or basic prayer in Sikhism is made up of five words: Ekonkar, Satnam,

Kartapurkh,

Nirbhau, Nirvair,

which embody the Sikh belief in one God,

Truth, Creative Power of God, Fearlessness, and Compassion.

Satya basically is the central concept of any dharma.

It means whatever we think, do and say are the same and all our sensory organs are in unison.

To practice Satya, we perform Satyanarayan Katha, which means on that day we wilfully don’t utter a lie. It is usually performed on the day of full moon, which affects the water retention in our body.

Full moon also affects our thoughts and emotions, often shrouding them with turmoil, ups and downs.

This heightens our negative aspect, to overcome which we fast during this day and seek divine blessings.

It is a day when we purify ourselves by not telling lies, refraining from non-verbal communication, and by not making complaints or holding grudges.

We need to be in a loving and kind mode, distribute food and gifts to everyone.

We also attract positive energy by detoxifying ourselves with the Holy Water and by accepting Panchamrit, which control the pitta dosha in our body.

It is a day-long detoxification of the body, a shift from rajasic and tamasic to satvic existence, to a parasympathetic state.
