Para Puja

what to say about it!!!
is it puja or it is para(beyond) puja
only a divinity herself could have composed it.

we noramlly worship god with 16 upcharas they are

1 (DhyAna &) AvAhana (meditating, inviting & installing )

2 Asana (offering a seat)

3 pAdya (offering water to wash His feet),

4 arghya (offering water to wash His hands),

5 AchamanIya( water to sip & cleanse)

6 AsnAna (bathing)

7 vastra (garments),

8 upavIta(sacred thread)

9 (patra &) uShpa(leaves & flowers), (haridrA-kumkuma &) gandha(turmeric, vermilion powder, sandal wood paste),

10 AbharaNa (alankaraNa) (jewels),

11 naivEdya & tAmbUla(fruits, coconut, eatables & beetle leaves with areca nuts),

12 (managaLa) Arati (waving lighted oil/ghee lamps),

13 pradakShiNa (parikramaNa)

14 namskAra(going round the Deity & salutation),

15. prArthanA (stuti)(prayer)

16. udvAsana (bidding farewell)

sri sankara expresses his helpnessness to do so in state of consciouness
which is logical since u dont talk about the atributes of a person when he is present
in person

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.
