    Hello IL's,

    Can you please provide me with some ideas for giving gifts for the priest other than the cash what we normally give after the pooja?

    It is very difficult to buy the panche vasthra or the shawl kind of clothing here. Is there anything that we can buy from the regular american stores that might be useful for them?


    Thanks !

    just curious.... why do you want to give gifts instead of giving cash as a dakshina and get his blessings which is our tradition to follow.

    According to the tradition, we usually give cash along with the clothing.I wanted to know what normally people have been giving along with the cash as dakshina which might prove useful to them here.

    Hi

    U can give some Gift cards from Sears or Kohls.... which will be useful for them instead of getting some clothes. They can use the gift cards for their Kids or family members. I have seen many people doing it.
