How to Perform Satyanarayan Katha and Pooja

To perform the sacred Satyanarayan Katha and Pooja, follow these steps:

  1. Purification: Begin by bathing yourself and purifying your home by sprinkling Gangajal and Gau Mutra.
  2. Decoration: Make a garland (toran) using Asopalav tree leaves or mango leaves and hang it at the main entrance or door.
  3. Katha Platform Setup: Place a low wooden stool or platform (bajot/patla) in an east-facing area of your home. Draw a Swastika symbol using kumkum (vermillion powder) and turmeric paste on the platform.
  4. Offerings: Spread a new cloth over the bajot or patla and scatter rice and wheat grains on it. Place a Kalash (sacred pot) filled with water and Gangajal on top, along with mango or betel leaves, and a coconut (Srifal). Decorate the Kalash with turmeric, kumkum, and flowers.
  5. Idol Preparation: Place a betel leaf in front of the Kalash and position the Lord Satyanarayan idol on it. Adorn the idol with garlands and sandalwood paste.
  6. Lighting the Ghee Diyas: Light ghee diyas (lamps) to mark the beginning of the puja.
  7. Commencement of Pooja: Begin the Pooja with Achamana (sipping water as a purification ritual), Pranayama (breathing exercises), and Sankalp (a vow to perform the puja with devotion).
  8. Ganapathi Puja: Perform a brief puja to Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles.
  9. Satyanarayan Katha: Recite the Satyanarayan Katha (the story of Lord Vishnu as Satyanarayan) along with other relevant prayers and mantras, as described in the Satyanarayan Katha book. This may include Navagraha Pooja (worship of the nine planets), Lakshmi Pooja (worship of the goddess of wealth), and Tulsi Pooja (worship of the holy basil plant).
  10. Naivedyam (Food Offering): Offer panchamrit (a mixture of five sacred ingredients), fruits, and sheera (a sweet dish) to Lord Satyanarayan.
  11. Aarti: Conclude the Satyanarayan Katha pooja by performing the aarti (a ritual of waving lighted lamps) according to the instructions in the book.
  12. Offerings to the Pandit: If a priest is present, offer them fruits, rice, wheat, sheera/halwa, and dakshina (a monetary offering).
  13. Offerings to Guests: Share the prasad (blessed food) with the guests. This typically includes sheera/halwa, fruits, and panchamrit.
