Also known as Pooja Cloth or Kala Kapda or Black Kapda.
Usage of Black Altar Cloth in Puja
Black colour has a deep significance in Hinduism. Hindus often wear black attire and display décor of this colour during special occasions or festivals. The darkest hues of the colour are considered to have great spiritual power and protective qualities. Black is seen as a form of protection from negative energies, which can keep people safe from harm.
In many Hindu cultures, the colour black is associated with Kali Maa, one of Hinduism’s most powerful goddesses. She symbolizes transformation and rebirth as well as destruction for new beginnings. Along with its spiritual powers, it also stands for humility and austerity; thus, many sages bury themselves in ash that turns their skin dark like night – an act performed to signify their connection to God.
The colour black has strong spiritual significance within Hinduism, representing protection from darkness and evil. It can also be associated with eternity, authority, power and stability. Therefore using a black altar cloth at Pujas ensures that all energy within the prayer room is focused on the deity being worshipped, shielding it from any negative influences or distractions. Additionally, since black absorbs light more easily than other colours, its use allows for better concentration in meditation during puja rituals; thus making it easier to connect with one’s inner spirit and focus on divine energies more effectively.
Tip: Devotees often buy Red Alter Cloth, Green Alter Cloth or White Alter Cloth for Puja & Homam Purposes.
