Ayudha Pooja…

One may have the latest and greatest brands / gizmo’s but when comes to tradition it all gets aligned perfectly, here Audi A6 being worshipped as part of Ayudha pooja on Dasera day by the owner.
This Ayudha puja is being celebrated since ancient times. The importance of Ayudha Pooja on this occasion may also be due to the fact that on the Vijayadashmi day, Arjuna took back his weapons which he had hidden in a vani tree in order to lead a life in disguise for the promised period of exile. It is believed that one who begins or renovates his learning to work on the Vijayadashmi day will secure a grand success as Arjuna did in Kurukshetra war.
The Ayudha Puja is a worship of whatever implements one may use in one's livelihood. On the preceding evening, it is traditional to place these implements on an altar to the Divine. If one can make a conscious effort to see the divine in the tools and objects one uses each day, it will help one to see one's work as an offering to God. It will also help one to maintain constant remembrance of the divine. In India it is customary for one to prostrate before the tools one will use before starting one's work each day; this is an expression of gratitude to God for helping one to fulfill one's duties.

Thank you very much for the explanation of this photo and Dasera, which otherwise would be quite incomprehensible.
