Wellington College International Pune Welcomes an Auspicious Beginning: Bhumi Poojan
We are glad to share the highlights of Bhumi Pooja at the Wellington College International Pune, school site.
Bhumi pooja / pujan is a Hindu ritual performed in honour of Goddess Bhoomi and Vaastu Purush (the deity of directions), before beginning the construction of a new property. The five elements of nature are also worshipped during the Bhumi pooja. Bhumi means Mother Earth.
Mantras are chanted and offerings made, to each deity. A pit is dug and the first brick is laid in it.
The ritual honours for the Bhumi Pooja were completed on 4th Mar 2022. We are grateful to all our stakeholders and well-wishers who bestowed their faith and support on this momentous occasion.
