Satya-Narayan-Puja ( Detailed)

It may be mentioned that the worship of Lord Satya-Narayan is the most popular amongst all the modes of worship offered to Lord Visnu. The Skand and the Bhavisya Puranas contain the importance and methodology of performing worship of Lord Satya-Narayan. The most appropriate book for details of methodology and mythology of this worship is Bhavisya Puran, which deals with this subject in its main text, whereas the Skanda Puran mentions its substitute in the appendix of its eastern version only. Here it may be mentioned usefully for the information of the devotees that two kinds of worship of Lord Satya-Narayan are being arranged in Mahavir Mandir, the one that may be called traditional, and another is known as Brihad (detaileds) Satya-Narayan-puja. The later one is special in the sense that this can't the performed by a lay priest rather it requires a bit of specialization. Since it is not possible for a common devotee to identify and collect puja materials himself, as also there is dearth of Pandit i-e the priest having expertise in such a Puja, Mahavir Mandir provides puje materials and a well-versed priest. On payment of a nominal fee, the devotee informed the date and time of so that he/ she may turn up in time of Satya-Narayan-Puja (detailed) to perform the ritual, which may spread over nearly two hours

Ramarcha

Ramarcha in Mahavir Mandir is performed in accordance with the “Ramrchana-paddhati” an authentic book written by Ramanandacharya. Here it is so devotion oriented and less-offering oriented and the fees are so normal that many people doubt that it is really the true Ramarcha. But our ritual is perfect and far better than that prevalent in other temples and institutions where devotees are fleeced in the name of rituals.
