Saraswathi This is from… According to Hindu culture, the earth is considered to be a mother. Before beginning any auspicious event, Bhoomi poojan or worshipping the earth is a must. Things required 1. A vessel full of Ganges water 2. Leaves of mango 3. Flowers, roli, grains of rice 4. Turmeric 5. Betel nut 6. Durba grass 7. Kalava (red thread) The place where Bhoomi poojan is conducted is cleaned and purified. Then the following rituals take place. 1. Shatkarm- The persons performing Bhoomi pooja are made to do shatkarma - Pavitrikaran, Aachaman, Shikhavandan, Pranayam, Najas and Prithivi poojan 2. Sankalp- Rice grains, flower petals, water are given in the hands of those performing the ritual. They offer it to the Bhoomi while reciting the shlokas. 3. Devi poojan- The mother goddess is invoked. 4. Bhoomi abhishinchan- To purify the place, pure water or Ganges water is sprinkled with the help of mango leaves or flowers. Mantras are recited. 5.
