Before doing Kalasha pooja u must do the following:

Before day that is on 25th Feb 2012 Saturday evening after the sun is set must view at east direction Guru, Shukra,New moon and Budha planets one below the other.At times you may not view Budha planets as could be clouds covering it.Even though you can't see Budha but you must see Guru, Shukra and New moon without missing.

People who think that they may not be eligible as they have missed their chance to view the planets on 25th Feb 2012 night 40 mts after sunset .Even if u miss out on watching these planets, u can see the Sun lord the next morning(26th Feb 2012) before doing Kalasha pooja.

On 25th Feb 2012 night u should see atleast 3 among the 4 planets which are Guru, Shukra and New Moon.If u can see the Guru, Shukra and New moon.If u couldn't see the New Moon also then on the next day u must see the Lord Ravi and pray saying that we are doing Kalasha pooja today please make sure that it goes well without any hurdles.Even if u can see the 4 planets u should pray the same.


1. People who have done 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th can do the 5th kalasha pooja.

2. People who have not done 1st KP but did 2nd, 3rd, 4th can also do the 5th Kalasha pooja.

3. People who have missed to any KP like 2nd or 3rd or 4th or any two or all three should not do the 5th KP.

4 To make 3rd point even clearer - people must do the 2nd, 3rd and 4th KP in order to do the 5th KP

Next Kalsha pooja:

Don't worry if any of you haven't done the kalasha poojas or missed one kalasha pooja.

On 4th March 2012 kharanama samvasthra, shukla paksha eka dashi thithi, punarvasu nakshatra, sunday is the 4th kalsha pooja

On this day, people have missed the previous kalasha poojas can do all 3 kalasha pooja at once.

Don't do:

2. Some people want to do kumkum archana in the kalasha pooja but don't do this now.There is still time for this when all the 9 raksha kavachs are ready from 9 Kalasha poojas.Then all the raksha kavachs are placed on a peeta(stand) and there is one more thing that should be placed on it.That will not be revealed until time is right.After then u can do pushpa archana or Kumkuma archana.

NOTE: This white colored cloth(5th raksha kavach)must be of less than the white colored yellow triangled marked bindis in length and breadth.That means it should be less in size which is must.If you kept big size then this kalasha pooja doesn't count.

How to read:

1. U should read all the 11 names 9 times.

Which gets the total: 11X9=99

U must read from 1st to 11th name from top to bottom once then bottom to top the 2nd time.Repeat the same for 9 times.

If u miss reading the names in the order as said above then the cloth(5th raksha kavach) should be removed and make a new one.

So its better to write them on the paper of total 11names from top to bottom and then bottom to top names in a paper so u don't miss out the order as told.
even better to write all 99 names in the said order so nothing goes wrong


1. Why we should read the names from top to bottom and bottom to top.And repeat the same 9 times?

2. U may also have a doubt that why this time the number is different as 99 in total?


1a. Srichakram: U may all be well aware of Shrichakra.It has 9 corners.There is a bindhi in the centre.From the bindhi to top it has 4 triangles and from bindhi to bottom it has 5 triangles.

b. 5 triangles or konas is called Shakti konas(corners).4 triangles or konas is called Shiva konas(corners).

c. So first time when we read the names from 1st to 11th it called shakti konam starting with shri matrai namah.whe we read from bottom to top 11th to 1st is called Shiva konam starting with shri shivayah namah.

d.By doing this u will read 5 times from top to bottom and 4 times bottom to top.It is 5 shakti konas and 4 Shiva konas.

2a.So the total number would add upto 99. one 9 is Goddess Shakti and the other 9 is Lord Shiva.So 99 is Shiva Shakti together.

b. When u add 9+9=18, 1+8 is also the same 9

IMP NOTE: If u don't read as said this kalasha pooja will be wasted.So please make note of all the 11 names

Reminder: Don't look for Lalitha Sahasranama Strothram but look for Lalitha Sahasranamavali.U may find many books on the platfroms but most of them have printing errors.So preferably get Gorakhpur's Geetha press book for the names because it doesn't have any mistakes.

People who can't read the names:

Just pray with all faith, concentration and devotion.


Payasam made of jaggery or sugar.But it should have more Sugandha dravyas(like elachi should be more)

Procedure of pooja contd:

1. Lit a deepam(any oil) and read the names then offer nyvedyam, haarathi.

2. If u wish to offer different kinds of fruits,its ok to offer fruits too.

3. All the family members can take the payasam after pooja and also give it to the neighbours.

4. After reading the names and pray for everything you wish for

5.U can pray to lord Ganesh or any other ishta dyva.

6. There is no rule that you should do it a particular way.Do it as you like.

7. Just move the Kalasha as to say udvasana(end) to the Kalasha pooja.

8. The 3 white cloths and the coin must be removed and be kept safe in almarah. 

9. The next day use the coconut which is used in Kalasha pooja and make any sweet with it.

10. The rice used in Kalsha pooja can be cooked and eat

 Later if anything is left out as to what to be done will be told by sidhanthi garu


1. Women whose spouse has expired recently should not do the kalasha pooja till a year.
2. If the swasthik mark is drawn in opposite direction then its useless and doesn't count.So need to do again.
3. No fasting of any sort.If u wish to do fasting then u can.Its all upto u.

I hope all of your doubts have been cleared by now.
