hi, i just to know how to do the lime lamp? any special rules such as how many lamp ? day? time?
I did the pooja with lime lamp for last 9 weeks. Procedure given here are what I followed. Friends if there is anything wrong please feel free to post it.
Procedure for making Lime lamp:
Take a big lemon. wash it. cut it into half.
Remove the juice. Dont use the juice.
Turn the skin upside down. so that the smooth side goes inside.
level the outer skin so that the lamp can sit properly.
put santhanam and kumkum on the lamp
So you have two lamps now.
pour oil and put "Thiri"
Procedure for doing pooja:
This can be done in any temple with Durga or amman sanathi
But it can also be done at home
for performing pooja, you can chant lalitha sahasranam, thrisathi or whaterver slokas you know about amman
If you are doing pooja at home, Do some neivedhyam
After chanting sloka, do arathi to amman
Best Days and time for doing pooja:
Raghu kalam in Friday and Tuesday are best to perform this pooja
Note: If possible avoid nonveg, onion, garlic on those days
God Bless you!!!
Thanks for sharing the procedure. I have a clarification. I am working and go early morning and come after 6 in the evening. Can I light the lime vilakku in the early mornings \ evenings at our house\amman temple, other than the ragu kalam?
I am also a working women, so i tried doing on Sunday 4.30 to 6 which is also a ragukalam in durga temple... First time when i went and saw at that time.. there was a huge crowd...
If that also doen't work out try in home itself...
As Brinda said you can do it at home on sundays in ragu kalam
Thanks Brinda and Meera. I shall try to do on Sunday's then.
we put the limes on a tambalam n yellow rice ( arisi mixed with tumeric)
i too startedlast week at home. but i felt some moodchanges and was angry for unknown reason and i correlated this with this lemon vilakku. i dont know whether this has impact if we do it at home. please enlighten me. Thanks in advance.
Wish all I Lites a WOnderful New Year.
i read sumwhere that during rahu kala pooja we only cn do it in temple .. other than this cn do at home.
