/The idea of "puja" goes back a long way, back to primitive times. //The first use of ritual acts centered around the hearth was probably connected with the controlled use of fire, which apparently was not used at first to cook food or for warmth, but as a fetish to impress the neighbors. //

//Fire is essential to puja and was an Aryan tradition probably imported into South Asia along with the Vedas and the Avesta. //At night a fire served as a light source and a way to deter predators. To the ancients fire was magic; an innovation that changed our brain's way of regulating time. The first camp fire or hearth was probably the first puja./
