Sathyanarayana Pooja
On Pournami Day every month

Satya Narayan is the Narayan form of Lord Vishnu. The Lord in this form is considered an embodiment of truth. Satyanarayana Puja is a ritual performed by Hindus before/on any major occasion like marriage, house warming ceremony, In addition, it is said that a devotional performance of this pooja will bear children to couples trying to start a family. It can also be performed on any day for any reason.

The Satyanarayana Puja is usually done on the Poornima day of every month (the day of the full moon). It is also done on special occasions and during times of achievements as an offering of gratitude to the Lord. In this puja , people worship by reciting the gracious story of Lord Satyanarayana. This story was originally told by Lord Vishnu himself to the sage Narada for the benefit of humankind.

The puja starts by a prayer to Lord Ganesha, the elephant God and remover of all obstacles that may occur as a result of incorrectly performing the puja. This is done by chanting all the names of Lord Ganesha and offering prasad. Another part of the prayer involves a prayer to the Navagraha's - the nine important celestial beings in the universe. Then the Satyanarayana Pooja is performed . This puja in the evening is considered more appropriate.

Another requirement of the puja is that the story of the puja be heard among all those observing and partaking in the pooja. The story involves the origin of the puja, the benefits of it, and the potential mishaps that may occur with the careless performance of the puja. The prayer concludes with an Aarti, which consists of revolving a small fire-lit-lamp in the vicinity of an image of the Lord. After the puja is over, participants and observers of the pooja are required to injest in the prasad that was offered and blessed by the Lord.
