Women play a major role in safeguarding our culture and heritage. As a means to upholding our cultural traditions and to create social awareness in the minds of women, Deepa Pooja is conducted periodically in all the places where Sevabharathi activities are going on. The Pooja includes prayers for the personal welfare of the participants and their families, as well as for the good of the entire society.
In our culture, collective prayer is considered superior to individual prayer in producing the desired benefits. Such collective prayer also makes a positive impact on the psyche of the participants and all others around.
The Pooja is invariably followed by special talks featuring social awareness themes. Women participate in large numbers in these poojas, cutting across barriers of caste and economic status. This results in the natural integration of the society.
