Satyanarayan Katha is a puja ceremony that is usually performed on Purnima of each month or before or after any auspicious occasion such as Marriage, House/Office inauguration, Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri, etc. It can also be performed after achieving great success and to remove the vested trouble. Satyanarayana is an avatar of Lord Vishnu and believed that offering puja to him will make goddess Lakshmi, his wife happy. Satyanarayan is a peaceful avatar of Lord Vishnu. He represents justice and truth. Here we mention how Satyanarayan Katha puja is performed.

How to Perform Satyanarayan Puja :

  • Take a holy bath. Observe a fast.
  • Prepare a Mandap with a canopy of Banana leaves and place the idols of Lord Ganesh and Satyanarayan.
  • Fill a copper container with water, cover it using five leaves and place a coconut over it. Decorated the pitcher with a Swastika using red vermilion.
  • Prepare Semolina Halwa or Wheat flour Choorma, Fruits, and Panchamrut as a Prasad to Lord Satyanarayana.
  • Perform Ganesh puja followed by Satyanarayan puja ritual along with mantra and aarti.
  • Explain all 271 epics of the Satyanarayan Katha.
  • Havan or fire ritual.

Satnarayan puja begins with Ganesh puja and mantra enchanting followed by offering him his favorite Wheat flour ‘ Laddu’. Next is Nav-Graha Puja [puja of Nine Planets] and Vishnu puja. Place the idol on the raised platform, on a red color cloth. Offer rose petals and fruits. Listen to the Adhyay of ‘Satyanarayan Bhagwan’.

Havan Pooja

After listening to the story of Lord Satya Narayan, the havan ceremony begins. Place the Havan Kund and four pieces of Kusha grass on the four corners of Havan Kund along with some sand so that the ghee when added won’t spill out of the Kund. Lit the camphor pieces to ignite the fire and place it in the Havan Kund along with some wood and chant the mantra. Apologize for any mistakes committed during the puja ceremony. For Purna-Ahuti, place the remaining of ingredients on a betel leaf, a betel nut, and a few drops of ghee into the fire and chant

“Om Poornaa-darvi paraapata supoornaa punaraapata.

Vasna neva vikree-naa-vahaa isha-moorja gvam shata-krato swaahaa”

After Purna Ahuti, perform Satyanarayan Aarti. Once this is completed, ask forgiveness from Lord Narayana and all the Goddesses and God for any mistakes which might be committed during the puja and havan. Request Lord Vishnu to return to his abode. Chant the Maha Mantra once to end.

“Om shree satyanarayana bhagavan aavaahayaamee sthapayamee”

“Om swagatam su swagatam – Om shree satyanarayana bhagavan namah”
