Jai Gurudev this Rudra puja and Devipuja being done in the Ashram, what is the benefit of this?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When the pooja is being done do you feel well and happy? Do you feel it is very nice? (Ans – Yes)
That is it; that is the intention to bring out the benevolent energy that is present. What is the use of meditation? When we meditate the energy that is present inside us wakes up. Where is that energy? In the base of the body (Kunda), this Kundalini energy rises up. Where ever puja is being performed this kundalini energy spreads and takes a benevolent form when you perform puja. That is why you do the puja.
