Rules for Kalash Stapana
Ghat or Kalash Stapana is an important ritual during Navratri. It is said that doing this eliminates all the negative energy that spreads in the house. The favorable time for setting up the Kalash this year is from 6:11 am to 7:51 am on September 26, 2022. The northeast direction is considered the most favorable for setting up the Kalash.
Place a pot by sprinkling Gangajal in this direction of the puja room and install a picture or idol of Maa Durga by putting a red cloth on it. Now place the sacred soil in a clay pot and sow the seeds of barley. Then fill Gangajal in a copper or clay pot and put in it akshat, betel nut, TBEN, a few cloves and durva grass.
Tie Kalawa around the neck of the Kalash and wrap a red chunari around a coconut. Tie it with Kalava and put mango leaves in the Kalash and place coconut on it. Then place the urn on the jar of barley and put the urn on the right side of Maa Durga. Worship goddess Durga after setting up the Kalash.
