    can we go to housewarming ceremonies with satyanarayana pooja during periods. ?

    Tomorrow is my cousins housewarming. And I flew all the way across th country for it. But now got periods. Can I still attend. ? If so can I just stay away from pooja area? Of course that will be odd in front of relatives. Sheesh. Or should I just avoid it altogether ?

    It depends on ones perception. Have you ever attended any puja or temple during periods?
    And if at all you attend don’t feel guilty later! May be you can stay away from the puja area.
    And some may not be comfortable if anyone who got periods keep walking around the puja area or newly constructed house considering it as bad omen. Do wat you feel is right. Because each ones view is different in such things

    No. I have not attended any poojas during periods. Thanks for letting me know that it’s a bad omen. Now I need to figure out how to avoid it.

    Sorry I’m not telling it’s bad omen. Some people feel that.
    But I have seen some people going to temples when on periods too especially during tours as they came so far to visit the place... So each ones opinion vary...
    Wat I feel is if you do attend, don’t feel guilty later...
    Or you can avoid the puja area. Stay in some other room where it’s far from puja

    It is good if you talk to your cousin about your dilemma because she is performing pooja and you must consider her opinion.

    Yes I would feel guilty later. Better to avoid it instead of feeling bad later.

    It depends on your family. Some of my relatives follow a lot of religious rituals every day. I will not visit them even on ordinary days if I have my period. Others are more relaxed. However at a major function it might be better to talk to your cousin first.

    If you decide not to go, remember to call your cousin and let her know. Otherwise she'll wonder what happened.

    As per my experience, strict purity and all is observed while pujari is present and the couple are doing the actual puja, at that time stay in back of room, avoid touching the cousin etc but once pooja katha is over and prasad has been given it just becomes a regular party and no particular restrictions and you can mingle etc. You must be really close with this cousin you came from so far to attend. Just tell her your plan to stay away and reason to prevent misunderstandings. She will guide you as to her ideas as well.

    I think it depends on how the host feels about it. If it was me hosting, I will not care, since I don't believe in period being harmful or interfering with anything religious. But another person may not hold the same belief. So I would definitely check with the cousin about how she feels, and go only if she says it is OK for me to go.
