Previous Night, think of the Lord Sri SatyanArAyaNa and mentally decide to
perform puujA the next day. This is the sankalpa. Next day early morning keep
the same thoughts of worshipping the Lord and take a head-bath (if possible
an oil-bath). Wash Kalasha and fill it with clean water upto 3/4 of it and place
it near the altar in a clean place and cover it up. Observe Fast (if possible).
Again in the evening take a head-bath. This should be done by both husband and
wife. Wear your best dress and decorate yourself. The yajamAn's dress should be
traditional dhoti. Decorate the kalasha, the front door, altar and the
place near the altar. Keep all the things for puujA ready, near the altar.
Invite your relatives, friends (who have bhakti in the Lord).
