Everyone has to do their own puja themselves.


Pleasure of ones mating,
eating one’s food
can these be assigned to another?
The daily ritual worship of one’s Linga
is to be done by oneself,
can this be assigned to another?
Those who do it casually
do they know you, Koodalasangamadeva? -Guru Basava/215 [1]

Intercourse with wife,
eating of tasty food,
and worship of Shiva,
will any one who has knowledge
allow others do them on their behalf;
Raamanaatha? -Jedera Dasimayya/1772

In Lingayat everyone has to do their own puja themselves. no mediators between GOD and human.
