We should do Satyanarayana Puja on Paurnami or Sankranti day Ekadashi
is fasting day. A Udyapana is after 4 years. Better than food the
Prasada is very delicious.
> as said earlier, there is no need to see any tithi, vAra, nakshatra,
yOga, karaNa etc. to performa satyanaarayaNa pooja (but normally we wont
do it during 'pitru paksha')On ekAdashi day, kartru should observe fasting
from morning (some would take little 'phalAhAra' & 'ksheera' :-)) to do
the pooja in evening & next day dvAdashi they do the prAtaH kAla pooja and
mahAnaivedya..Yes, prasAda sapAda bhakshya is very delicious and for me
other food too...I dont know about others, I am talking about food
prepared for naivedyaM at our home :-))
Avahana of Satyanarayana is in Kalasha only.Purusha Sukta is main mantra.
> No, actually for satyanArAyana prANa pratishTApana, in our tradition,
we use beejAkshara pUrvaka anga nyAsa, karanyAsa with dhyAna shlOka
'raktAmbodhi'...and veda mAntra 'AtvA vahantu haraya' etc. and show
various mudra-s while reciting avAhitobhava, sthApito bhava, sanniruddho
bhava, avakunTitObhava, varadObhava, shAntObhava etc...And after prANa
pratishtApana, dhyAna AvahanAdi shOdashOpachAra pooja, we recite purusha
sUkta maNtra-s & purANokta stOtra-s. Anyway, I am not sure about other
Even Shodasopachara can be done with Purusha Sukta mantras.
They only keep a photo of Satyanarayana. Why do you do Navagraha Puja
> Before we do satyanArAyaNa pooja, we do dhyAna AvahanAdi pooja to
AdityAdi navagraha, durgAdi sAdguNya devata, ishta devata, kula devata
etc. Because it is believed that these devata-s are parivAra devata-s to
main & supreme god sri satyanArAyaNa. So before inviting supreme godhead,
we have to offer pooja to his subordinates, gate keepers (dvArapAlaka-s)
etc...It is just like before inviting prime minister, inviting his staff,
secretary, pA-s etc. :-))
> Here in Bangalore, in the satyanArAyaNa vrata kalpa printed books too
there will be navagraha maNtra-s & pUja maNtra-s...So, atleast in some
part of South India, this pooja is part & parcel of satyanArAyaNa vrata.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
