A sense of offering comes up in you in a state of fullness, of gratitude. “You gave me this world and I offer it back to you. I have been given this body and every particle of this body, I’m offering back to you. I am yours.” This intense feeling of total offering, merging, giving everything to the Divine, not saving anything for oneself, becoming the offering itself, is Pooja.
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
