Here you will find a summary and explanation of Remedies and Poojas, that are often recommended in the Palm Leaf reading. You might have some or none of the recommendations below, depending on your karmic constitution.
What is the Purpose of Remedies?
The purpose of the recommended remedies is to clean and transform certain karmic blockages in your life by working on the underlying karmic tendency that caused them.
The Palm Leaf reading itself, and the blessing of the Rishis, opens our karmic field in a way that makes it very susceptible for the effect of the remedies to take place. The true purpose of the Palm Leaf readings is the positive effects that we can observe in the developments of our lives, when we apply the remedies.
Performing Poojas Yourself
One of the most common recommendations is to perform prayers and poojas (devotional ceremonies) to different deities. The deities from the Indian traditions are personifications of different universal energies. For example, the “Goddess Lakshmi” represents the energy of abundance, love and beauty.
The outer form of these poojas is flexible, and you can basically create your own ceremony as long as you include the mantras that are used to invoke these specific energies. The most simple form of such a pooja is to chant the recommended Mantra of the deity 108 times, and say some prayers for their blessing to transform your life for the better. You will be surprised be the results!

What is the Mantra Yantra Puja
These are very specific rituals with special Mantras, which can be performed in your name and for you, by trained priests in temples in India. This Mantra Yantra Pooja is usually performed twice a day for a certain period of time. During the pooja, a copper Yantra is charged with the energy of the ritual, which will be send to you after its completion.
When the pooja is performed for you, a very specific energy frequency is invited into your energy field that helps to transform certain karmic conditionings. The Yantra will store that energy frequency and it acts as a reminder when you keep it in your Home.

What is Guru Dhan?
Guru Dhan is an old Indian tradition to give an offering of appreciation to a teacher or someone who has assisted you in a spiritual process.
“Guru Dhan” is an act of sending offerings of gratitude towards the light of consciousness, which can be directed to those who are in the role of providing a space for that light to come through.
It is recommended in the Palm Leaves to express gratitude to those who help one on their journey with the leaves. This expression of gratitude is opening us up to receive the blessings of the Rishis on a deeper level.
It can have the form of a monetary donation, but also other forms that have a sincere intention of gratitude and appreciation for the blessings of the Rishis.
