Kalasha Puja

Kalash

 

Kalasha Pooja is an ancient Indian spiritual practice for the fulfillment of specific desires for welfare of oneself or one's family. It can be easily performed at home with devotion for fulfillment of desires or solving day to day problems like attaining good health, creation of wealth, education, marriage, begetting children, court cases, success in various endeavours etc. and even for moksha for one's ancestors. It is done by procedural observation of prayers, offerings, incantations to the Lord Almighty (normally the Goddess) who is worshipped as the wish fulfilling Kalasha. During the period of performing Kalasha Pooja, one bonds with the Divine Living Presence at one's residence and receives Divine Grace everyday. Kalash Pooja fills the home with sacredness and increases one's bonding with his / her personal God. It also raises one's state of consciousness to higher levels. Besides fulfilling our desires and solving our problems, the Kalash Pooja leads us to a happy way of living in the busy and materialistic world. For understanding the simple procedure of performing the Kalasha Pooja at one's residence, either individually or by inviting a group of friends, please go through the following.

  1. Select such a place to keep the kalash that it should not be disturbed for 21 days. Clean the place & put rangoli. Keep a small stool or a Chorang and cover it with white cloth.
  2. Clean (Wipe) Picture of Goddess with rose water. Put tikka using chandan and kumkum.
  3. Prepare Akshadha by mixing 1 kg rice with some haldi and very little water and a few drops of ghee.
  4. For the kalash, take the coconut and apply some turmeric and water spreading the turmeric completely on the coconut. Take a copper or brass vessel (kalash) fill some water in it , put a bit of haldi and kumkum , some tulsi leaves and 2 one rupee coins in the water . Keep the five mango leaves on the kalash and place the coconut on top of these leaves. Place the kalash on the plate & spread the white rice (not the akshadha) on the plate. Put haldi (turmeric paste) on all the four sides of the kalash and the coconut. Now put the garland on the kalash as well as Lord's Picture. {Note that some vastra can be used to decorate the kalash}
  5. Take Aarthi. Pray that The Lord must fill His presence in the kalash .Take some Akshadha and water in your left hand cover it by your right hand & place it on your right thigh for taking the sankalpa. During the sankalpa pray for the fulfillment of any one wish which will remain constant throughout the kalasha pooja. Then you will visualize that The Lord have fulfilled that wish & thank them and show your gratitude to them. After the sankalpa is over chant the moolamantra for 108 times and every time you chant put some akshadha on the kalash. After this offer the Prasad to The Lord and do your pranams. Continue this for 21 days. Note that the kalash should not be disturbed in this period of 21 days.
  6. At the end of the 21st day the kalash can be removed. The water of the kalash can be sprinkled around the house and remaining can be poured in to tulsi plant.
  7. Out of the 2 coins one should be kept in the normal pooja place and the other is to be given to a person with financial problems.
  8. The akshadha should be collected and cooked. This will be fed to any poor or needy person.
