    Thank you for the replies.
    I shall start them on Friday then.

    aartha: There is a blog in Krishnamma's page about kubera kolam.

    I remember my mother putting it and reciting the two lines of kubera slokam.

    I have attached the kolam and the slokam with this thread

    Aarta,

    Swamy medai : Altar . The place where you keep the god.
    Basically you have put the kolam (rangoli in hindi) in front of the god.

    You can use white rangoli powder for this which you get in Indian stores

    Very good thread is started. I will start it from tomorrow. I am also thinking of doing it daily. I even have bought the plate of that kolam using which we can put it in the medai. But since I am facing much health problems, I am not able to get up early and do all these things also, I don't have sufficient place in my flat which is very small and I am keeping the god in the kitchen itself.

    Since, I have seen this thread and also came to know that starting on friday is auspicious, let me pray and start it tomorrow.
