Navratri Pooja Vidhi: Step wise instructions

1 .You need to wake up early in the morning.
2. Take bath and wear laundered clothes.
3. Keep 'diya' at the left side of the deity.

For 'Akhand Jyot'.

Keep in mind that you should not leave the house vacant if you are lighting the 'Akhand Jyot'. Someone must stay back at home.

4. On the right hand side of the idol, keep incense sticks etc.
5. Keep yourself prepared to do the Puja with full devotion and concentration.
6. Keep the kalash and coconut as well.
7. Lay the mat and sit in an upright position in front of the deity.
8. Light the 'diya'. Ring the bell or blow the 'Shankh'.

For 'Ghat Sthapna' also called 'Kalash Sthapna':

Ghatasthapana is one of the significant rituals during Navratri. It marks the beginning of nine days festivity. Our scriptures have well defined rules and guidelines to perform Ghatasthapana during a certain period of time at the beginning of Navratri. Ghatasthapana is invocation of Goddess Shakti and doing it wrong time, as our scriptures forewarn, might bring wrath of the Goddess Shakti. Ghatasthapana is prohibited during Amavasya and night time.

The most auspicious or Shubh time to do Ghatasthapana is first one third of the day while Pratipada is prevailing. If due to some reasons this time is not available then Ghatasthapana can be done during Abhijit Muhurta. It is advised to avoid Nakshatra Chitra and Vaidhriti Yoga during Ghatasthapana but those are not prohibited. The most important factor to consider is that Ghatasthapana is done before Hindu midday while Pratipada is prevailing.

9. Place the kalash near the idol or picture of the deity and fill it with pure water.
10. Place mango leaves on the mouth of the kalash.
11. Place a coconut inside the kalash.
12. Tie moli around the neck of the kalash.
13. Sprinkle 'Gangajal' all over the Puja room.
14. Now, offer sandalwood powder and some fresh grass to the Goddess.

Khetri ?in north india, most devotees grow 멾hetri?or barley seeds during navratri. for this clean mud is collected from an auspicious or clean place. add this mud in an earthen pot. clean and wash the barley to remove any impurities or insects. soak the barley for 20-30 minutes. then put these barley or 멽au?on the top of mud. make a thin layer of mud on top of barley, so as to cover it. don뭪 put too much mud otherwise barley will not grow and put just enough water to soak the barley. one red color string (mauli) of mata rani (goddess) is tied to khetri pot.

the progress of 멾hetri?or barley is keenly observed by the devotee뭩. it is believed that the longer the barley grow in height, better it is for the family well being and prosperity. it is related with the blessings (kripa) of the goddess on you and your family. another opinion is that instead of observing the height of khetri, you should look at the color of khetri.

yellow color khetri is not considered good whereas green color khetri is considered good. on the last day of navratri after doing kanjak pooja, the khetri is immersed in moving water bodies like river or even a pond. if there is no water body nearby to your house then you can put the khetri under pipal tree in the temple. if you stay out of india, then check with your local temple as often they collect the khetri.
