Panchamrita Puja is a Hindu ritual that involves offering a mixture of five sacred ingredients to the gods and ancestors. The mixture, known as Panchamrita, is typically made from milk, honey, ghee (clarified butter), sugar, and yogurt.
The Panchamrita Puja is performed on various auspicious occasions, such as festivals, weddings, and other religious ceremonies. The puja is performed by a Hindu priest, who prepares the Panchamrita mixture and offers it to the gods and ancestors while reciting prayers and mantras.
