The ‘Ganapati’ idol puja begins with lighting the agarbatti-dhoop positioned in an aarti thali. Then, place the paan leaf with a supari resting on high of it on the ground in entrance of the sandli. Don’t neglect to chant the golden mantra of ‘Om Gan Ganpatiye Namah’. If there’s a pandit (priest) performing the puja for you, then do place some dakshina (providing) for him and in addition for the artisans, who superbly create such murtis (idols). For folks, who carry within the ‘Ganesh’ idol dwelling earlier than Chaturthi, have to cowl the face of the murti with a material, and take it off solely on the day ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ puja is carried out throughout murti sthapna (instalment of the idol).

The pious ritual of Ganesh Chaturthi puja begins with cleansing the whole home (and that is adopted earlier than the Ganpati idol is introduced dwelling). Your entire household sitting for the puja ought to be prepared after taking an early tub. It’s higher when you can invite a Pandit, certified in performing pujas. The clay idol of the lord, which you positioned on a clear, raised platform, will now see the mantras being chanted for invoking the God in it. The customary apply of ‘Pran-Pratishtha’ (infusing life in idol) is without doubt one of the major steps on this puja. Due to this fact, a specialised pandit is required to chant the holy mantras and invoke the lord in that murti.
The Pran-Prathista mantra in Sanskrit to be invoked is discovered within the Rig Veda and is a part of Ganesh Suktha. After the pran-pratishtha of the murti is finished with, the subsequent step that follows is that aarti and lighting of the lamps and aggarbattis. If a pandit is performing this whole puja for you, then you’ve got the privilege of asking him to carry out the shhodashopachara, that are 16 types of paying tribute to Ganesh. Quickly after this, provide 21 blades of durva grass, 21 modakas (they are saying Lambodra loves them) and a few crimson flowers to Ganpati.
Then, put the crimson Sandalwood tilak (mark) on the brow of the lord’s murti. Bear in mind an previous saying that breaking a coconut is auspicious to keep off evil? Sure, you must do the identical right here. Try to break the coconut positioned proper in entrance of the Lord’s idol, nonetheless, if you’re unable to take action, fear not, simply place it there. Apart from, don’t neglect to maintain some fried grains for Ganpati’s service—the Mushaka (the mice which carry the lord on him). To your personal good, strive reciting the 108 salutations devoted to Ganesh or learn the Ganesh Upanishad. Additionally, whereas performing the Puja at dwelling, there may be at all times an choice of flexibility. The rituals, which require a sure construction or many pandits for the chanting of mantras needn’t be performed by you. Merely observe these steps and pray—the remaining Bappa will do.
