    Hi Rathy
    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!!!

    Hi Meena,
    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?

    Thanks,
