    G'day Shravantika,

    Saw your post. I did my Ghrihapravesh without a priest. I was new to Melb. No friends.Nothing.

    Other than the divinity, no one helped or guided us. I was in a hotel for a month. Mom had an Almanac. She suggested a good date.

    I did Ganeshji's pooja along with the boiling over of the milk & that's it.

    Shravantika, faith is more important. Yes, you may have certain wishes like: get a priest etc. But when you do not have one/not interested in getting one, DIY (Do it yourself) is the best Mantra.

    For more easy advice, I would suggest you to email Chitraji (Chitvish). She is the best one to advice you.

    She has helped many NRIs like me with queries.

    Regards,

    Corallux

    Corallux,
    My joy knew no bounds...when I saw your reply...that was really boosting...

    How come asking Chitraji never struck my mind?

    Again many thanks....

    Question related to this.
    How do y'all perform Gruhapravesham for a new house ?
    Do you do Homam or just pooja without fire ?
    Wont the fire / smoke stick to the house for a long time ?

    Here the priests are clever :), they can perform homam without smoke , they use dried coconuts, take a aluminium big bowl(one we use for serving biryani/rice etc) and fill it with sand and make homam on it.

    Sujatha.
