Complete Shri Ganesh Chaturthi pujavidhi

Before commencing the ritualistic worship, rice (any other food grain if rice not available) is spread over the seat and then the Idol is placed on it. A fistful or a small mound of rice is used depending on the local custom. The benefit obtained by installing the Idol on rice grains is given ahead.

Uttarpuja (Uttaravahan) of Shri Ganapati Idol

Uttarpooja should be performed before immersing the Shri Ganapati Idol in flowing water. After performing this puja, the Idol is slightly shifted from its place. After the uttarpuja, the Idol is immersed in flowing water.
