Dear Mrs.Chitra I know its way too early to be thinking abt Navarathri. I am thinking of keeping kolu this time. It will be my first time after marriage of 5.5 years. So if I keep kolu what is the minimum # of steps to construct? Is it 3/5? Also what kind of dolls can be kept. I really luv mann bommai but carrying here all the way from India would be impractical. So apart from couple of mann bommais I have to compensate with bommais from different material. Do you think brass bomais are okay to keep? Are any kind of bommais compulsory? Is it compulsory to have chettiar chettichi , dasavatharam? What to keep in 1st padi and so on.Sorry lots of questions Do you have a good shop which would sell now(way before navarathri). Also the main thing is if I keep Kolu, do I have to perform Poojai and naivedhyam everyday? I am working and hence this question. Or Lighting a lamp with few slokams are acceptable? Pls. clarify my doubts whenver you have time. Thanks Geetha Sorry couldnot find the doubts questions in sprituality thread so opened another thread.
