Bangalore Ph 080-26500933    Sri Gurubhyo Namaha: Mahaganapataye Namaha:   FAQ of Swarna Gowri Pooja:   Disclaimer: Pooja Procedures vary from region to region and vary from paddathi topaddati. There are numerous regional and community variations in performing theritual.   It is best to consult elders at Home to know about your paddathi . This FAQis based on Hindu-Brahmin-Smartha –Mulakanadu Sampradaya. Mostly commonto all Brahmin sub-cast and Bangalore/Mysore/Sringeri region.   1.   What direction should the God be kept: Pl. keep the god facing East – Best OptionOr 2 nd option - North.General Explanation - Please note that God can be kept facing any inDirection………Sruti vakya says “ Daivataha : Sarvato mukhaha  ”….(thatmeans, God faces all directions)……so in this context, We must face the godwhile doing pooja (Abhimukhi) In that case, if you are facing east then godwill be facing west. If you are sitting facing North, then God will be facingWest. As far as possible, keep god facing in such a way that, as soon assomebody enters the house, they are able to see the god directly… it is yourconvenience….. Avoid using corners. However, You must face to the East orNorth while sitting for pooja and sankalpa that is important. 2.   What direction we should sit for pooja: Pl. sit facing East or NorthDirection.   3.   Can I Start the pooja in Raahu Kaala: Pl. Note that the Raahu Kaala isfollowed only for Journey   purpose and for starting any big events. But it isnot followed for daily events and periodical event. This is vrata is aperiodical event ( Varshe, Varshe kartavya  : …. That means every yearritual….).. so in my opinion, you need not see rahukaala to observe thisvratha. Shara (exception) ---- Pl. observe RahuKaala if this is first year of  your pooja (newly married first timers)1.   What is the Rahukala for Bangalore for 31-08-2011 ( Rahu Kala 12-19pm to 1.51PM) Please note that the Rahu Kala varies from placeto place depening on the SUNRISE time of the day.4.   When do I take Mangala Snaana: People who are all doing pooja…sumangalis and the children   should take mangala snaana on the previousday of the pooja…. That is on Bidige(2 nd day of the lunar Month) …. On thepooja day (triteeya), you should take normal bath…   5.   How many Threads should be kept for pooja: Even Nos. 2,4,6,8etc.,depending on how may of you are doing vrata together. (Normally forthis vrata, people who does not have tradition of keeping Gowri Kalasha attheir home, will join us for doing vrata).6.   Each Daara should be of how many threads, and how manyGantus.(Knots): the Sloka says, “ Shodasha Granthi Sanyuktam, Krutam,Shodasha Tantubihi”…. That means, it should be made of 16 threads and16 Granthis (Knotss). But Normally, you take single thread hasi daaradaunde, make five folds of daara with a length of about little more than half ameter and put 16 Granthis (Knots). Take one Shavantige hoova and tie it atthe center of the daara. You need to soak the daara with arishina(Turmeric)..keep it on viledele (2) and adike(2) and dakshine, keep it in a small plate andplace it on to the right side of the Devi and do Pooja.7.   What is the procedure to tie this daara(Doora Granthi): Normally, afterthe pooja, if Husband   is around, ( dressed in Panche and shalya), He will tiethis. Give this Daara to him. You keep one taambula with a fruit anddakshine in Both of your hands…….. taambula facing Husband… you facingNorth or East…and Sit. Husband will show/touch this daara first to rightwrist, and later left wrist……like this for three times and tie the daara withthree knots on to your right hand wrist. After that, he will put arishina andkumkuma to the knots. You will keep the taambula down,… get up and givehim akshaate and do namaskaara.
