Did I say that I had actually undertaken the sadhana yet? No, I don't believe I did.
I've been reading posts on here and most people seem pretty helpful. So, as part of my INVESTIGATION I thought I would enquire here to get what seem like knowledgeable and reliable responses.
I also didn't say that I am completely unfamiliar with any types of puja/sadhana, just that this particular form is not clear to me.
Is it really necessary to have a guru say, "Yes, you can worship God in this way?" (Not that I discount the importance of the guru)
Thanks for answering the question about the haldi and for what I can only assume is an attempt to make me "think", but perhaps it would be more helpful of you to offer advice, insight, or places where I could find information.
