It is strongly recommended that they pattern this holy practice in harmony with the spirit of the liturgy. Devotees strongly believe that ritual worship of Lord Shiva on the auspicious day of Shivaratri absolves them of past sins and they are blessed with Moksha.

They also have their own devotional books and insignia such as medals, habits, cinctures, and even their own places of worship and cemeteries. Others believe that the word, "Aradhana", which is synonymous with Aarti goes to mean "the greatest love for God", which gives true and lasting happiness and joy. Then they get attachment to God (Asakti). In the light of this authoritative teaching and of other pronouncements of the Church's Magisterium on the pious practices of the Christian people, and drawing on pastoral cases that have emerged in recent years, the Plenary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, held September 26-28 2001, approved this present Directory which considers, in general terms, the relationship between Liturgy and popular piety, restates the principles regulating that nexus, and stipulates guidelines for their fruitful implementation in the particular Churches, in accordance with their specific traditions.

Do we put our lamps under a bushels, or do we let them shine? Such authentic expressions of popular piety are not at odds with the centrality of the Sacred Liturgy. In other cases, the Lord enjoys the subtle essence of the food offered, and the food remains as it is in the shape of Prasada. After puja do not throw oblations any where except running river, lakes or sea. In those instances where the liturgical actions have been superceeded by popular piety comments, such as the following, are often heard: popular piety is sufficient for the free and spontaneous celebration of "Life" and its multiplicity of expressions; Liturgy, on the other hand, centered at it is on the "Mystery of Christ" is essentially anaemic, repetative, formalistic and inhibits spontaneity; the Liturgy fails to involve the total being, both corporeal and spiritual, of each member of the faithful; popular piety, because it speaks directly to man, involves his body, heart and mind; popular piety is an authentic and real locus for the life of prayer: through pious exercises the faifthful truly dialogue with the Lord, in terms which they fully understand and regard as their own; the Liturgy, however, places words on their lips that are not their own or alien to their level of culture, and thereby becomes a hindrance to prayer rather than a means; the ritual with which popular piety is expressed is one which is received and accepted by the faithful because of its correspondence between their cultural expectations and ritual language; the ritual proper to the Liturgy is impenetrable because its various expressive forms derive from different cultural sources widely removed from those of the faithful. 54.

This is due to Divya-Bhava or divine disposition. Prasad is the most sacred object for a devotee. We don’t know who started it or why they thought of it, but just the reading of the Law made them stand to their feet, lift up their hands, say ‘Amen!’ and worship the Lord.
