The Samashtii Upasana or Cosmic Puja, is the meditation and worship of all the forms of divinity in existence, of all the deities of the universe. The Cosmic Puja is derived from the Chandi Path, and it reveals the worship of the Divine Mother and Her multitudinous family.
Puja describes the actions that give birth to merits. The action of the greatest merit is to guide one’s awareness into the presence of God and to maintain that presence as long as possible. Through puja we offer all that we possibly can to God and thereby experience peace. This worship is intended to lead us to that objective.
Swami Satyananda Saraswati has translated the Cosmic Puja so that we may use it to instill within us that quality of true reverence for all of life in which we actually pay attention. By performing this worship we become so absorbed in the union between the perceiver and the object of perception that we go beyond all duality.

When Swami Satyananda's guru invited him to trek into the Himalayas, he asked what he should bring along. "Nothing," came the reply. Fifteen years later, Swamiji knew the mountain pathways as well as the Hindu systems of worship. His numerous books and translations of ancient Sanskrit texts are available all over India, as well as in the United States, and he is widely regarded as a Master of the ancient Vedic fire ceremony and other systems of worship. Now Swamiji invites us to trek into the Himalayas and listen and learn from the sadhus of the mountains.Review:
