Items required for Puja:

Lotta with water, thali, deep(jyoti), rice, sandoor, flowers and suhag items.

Ladies in a group will follow the normal procedure of rotating “Thali” when Karwa chauth story is being recited. If a lady is not in a group, she can perform puja by herself without rotating “thali”. Pandit jee will guide the ladies for puja performance, which will be live- streamed on Durgamandir Facebook every hour starting at 2:00 p.m. and ending at 8:00 P.M. After listening to the story, ladies are required to do “sankalp” as directed by Panditjee, which will complete th puja. Moon (chand) “darshan” and moon puja will complete the “Karwa Chauth” Vrat. The expected time of moonrise is 7:34 P.M.
