*Manasa Puja: Manasa puja is a form of worship that is performed in the mind. The term comes from the Sanskrit, manas, meaning “mind” or “thoughts,” and puja, meaning “worship” or “adoration.” In the most common form of manasa puja, the devotee goes through an entire worship ritual in his/her head, visualizing all steps of the ritual.

**Karthika Puja: A monthly birthday is traditionally observed in India based on the moon's position at the time of birth. Karthika is the Nakshatra - star constellation- in which the moon was transiting at the time of Amma's birth. Therefore, each time the moon returns to this spot in the heavens, approximately every 28 days, is considered to be a day of dedication to Amma and is celebrated by her children around the world.
