Rituals for Conducting Puja During Navratri

– Take a bath in the morning during the auspicious time of Ghatasthapana, which is from 6:02 AM to 10:15 AM. 

– If you cannot establish the Kalash during this time, you can also do it during the auspicious time of Abhijit, from 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM. 

– Meditate on Lord Ganesh in the temple of the house before tying Mauli to the copper pot in a swastika shape. 

– Fill the pot with water mixed with a few drops of Ganga water, and add a coin, incense, betel nut, perfume, and rice. Finally, light the diya/deepak (sacred flame) of Maa Durga.

– Alongside the Kalash establishment, put soil in a clay vessel and sow barley seeds in it. 

– Those fasting during Navratri should continue with their regular diet.

Avoiding Debt During Navratri

Celebrity Astrologer Praduman Suri advises against buying new items on loan during Navratri. Purchasing items on debt, whether it’s new clothes, electronics, or other goods, can invite negative energy into your life. Suri suggests that acquiring items through loans, whether from a bank or acquaintance, can lead to a burdened mind and heart, compromising the positive energy within the household. Therefore, it’s important to refrain from taking on loans during Navratri to maintain positivity.
