Pooja / Darshan Details
Mangla aarti is important because it is first aarti in the morning.The Scriptures talk of the “Brahma muhurta” hour. It means one hour and a half before the sun comes up. This time is very auspicious because the sun is pushing all of the energies of the Earth from a sleeping stage to an awakened stage. Similarly it is pushing the mind, the intelligence, and the bodies of all the living entities from a sleeping stage to a higher stage of awakening. Therefore, mangla aarti is calculated to be at that time, and if we give our attention and energy towards glorifying the Lord, it is very beneficial and auspicious to begin the day hearing and chanting about the glories of the Lord.

In Hindu belief, after death, the soul of human being still remains in this materialistic world. It becomes difficult for the dead person to detach himself/herself from this world. However, the love, affection, and kindness towards his/her family, relatives, and friends make his/her soul stay in this materialistic world and prevents him to go for the extreme and ultimate departure. As a result, it would be very painful for the departed souls to be in a bodiless state. He/she wants to do many things but cannot. They don’t even wish to make themselves free from this materialistic world. According to Hindu belief, performing Pind Daan in Gaya or Varanasi gives an ultimate relief to the deceased souls and paves them the way for their departure to the ultimate world of peace. Thus, Varanasi rituals like Asthi Visarjan, Anna Shradh, and Pind Daan in Gaya should be performed compulsorily to bring salvation (mukti) for the departed souls.
