About Navratri Ghatasthapana

To commemorate the Navratri Ghatasthapana celebrations, the Navratri Puja Ghatasthapana or Durga Puja Kalash Sthapana is done on the Pratipada Tithi, Chaitra, and Shukla Paksha. Before making prayers to Goddess Shailputri, the original Navdurga, it is done.

The Kalash is a symbol for Shakti, also known as the origin of creation or feminine force. The Kalash is filled by devotees with water and a few pennies. Then they submerged a group of mango leaves in the water. Then the Kalash's neck is covered with a whole, brown coconut still in its husk. To the Kalash, which represents the deity, are offered Haldi, Chandan, Kumkum, flowers, and Akshat. For the subsequent nine days, the Goddess is praised and worshipped.

This item represents vitality, power, luck, and auspiciousness. It embodies the Mother Goddess in a nutshell. Additionally, the Navdhanya, which takes nine days to grow in the soil, stands for life and creation. As a result, Kalash Sthapana in Navratri or Ghatasthapana Puja is required for proper Navratri celebrations. 

Ghatasthapana Puja Vidhi

This is the Ghatasthapana Puja Vidhi that will come in handy while you plan the Ghatasthapana Puja! 

  • Before beginning the Ghatasthapana Puja, clean the puja room or the surrounding region.
  • Take a large-mouthed pitcher made of mud or copper, fill it with soil, and plant seven different kinds of grains, such as wheat and barley. Nowadays, consumers prefer grains, lentils, and grams. Mantras honoring Lord Varuna are chanted when the grains are sown. You can utilize any mantra you know that is specifically dedicated to Goddess Shakti if you are not familiar with any Vedic mantras.
  • In the puja room or area, bring another batch of soil and create a thick, five- to seven-centimeter-thick square or rectangular bed. On here, grains are also sown.
  • In the puja chamber or puja area next to the substantial square of the sand bed, a picture of Goddess Durga or another manifestation of Goddess Shakti is placed. If one is accessible, a Navarra Yantra is placed close to the image of Goddess Durga. Along with the painting, the mud pot is installed.
  • The Kalash pot is made of copper, silver, or earthenware; it is filled with water, sandalwood paste, flowers, durva grass, rice colored yellow (akshata), betel nuts, five leaves, five stones, or a gold coin. These ingredients are combined in one saucepan. On top of the Kalash, a coconut is traditionally placed; however, some people choose to cover the top with garland instead of the coconut.
  • Flowers and garlands are placed on the vessel, artwork, or deity. Flowers are arranged close to the Goddess's pot and picture.
  • Lamps are lit in the morning and evening, and Aarti is performed. Some homes keep a lamp burning for nine days.
  • Regionally and according to family tradition, different mantras are chanted during puja. Some use straightforward Goddess Durga chants.
  • The devotee says, "I offer flower (name of a flower) to Goddess Durga or Shakti," when presenting Prasad, flowers, etc.
  • Make sure the sand bed and the pot containing the sand are moist. A small bit of water is sprinkled for this.
  • On each of the nine days, fresh flowers and garlands are provided.
  • The grains may have grown 3 inches or 5 inches by the tenth day, at which point they are cut and distributed as prasad to family, friends, and neighbors.
