According to old Hindu traditions, whenever people purchase a new car or any heavy vehicle, they should perform an elaborated puja or ritual to eliminate any associated negative energies from it and bless it with positive vibes and harmony.
But with time, we are cut-shorting the puja rituals and shifting towards summarised DIY processes.
We are getting modern, but that does not mean pujas and rituals followed by old generations are bogus. All the pujas and traditions have a meaning, and we should follow them to avoid consequences.

Vehicle Puja is a well-known Hindu ceremony. Every time someone purchases a brand-new, expensive item, vehicle, or appliance in Hindu culture, they perform a puja before using it to honour or bless it.
The purpose of Vahan puja or vehicle pooja is to bless a new vehicle to ensure that it harmoniously blends in with the house and prevents future tragedies. People do this puja for all vehicles, including motorcycles, scooters, cars, and trucks.

What Are The Drawbacks Of Performing DIY Vehicle Puja?
Performing a DIY pooja is less effective than the puja performed with the help of a pandit. It is so because doing puja is a complex process, and we don’t know all the rituals and procedures that need to be done, whereas a pandit has acquired this knowledge by studying for several years.
Pandits know what mantras to recite and what rituals to perform. Plus, it is not just about performing it correctly; it is also about the blessings that pandits ensure to the owners from their ritual procedures.
