Ghatsthapana  Navaratri Method

On the first day of the autumn Navratri, i.e. on the date of Pratipada, in view of the auspicious moment in the morning, it is suitable for the installation of the urn on the north-east side of the house. For this, the northeastern part of the house should be thoroughly cleaned. The place of installation should be cleaned with pure water and clean soil should be spread on it. On top of that, a class should be established.

It is customary to set up a urn, go to a river, stream, bagar or any place where it suits oneself, bring clean sand or soil and place it in the tenth house or place of worship and sow barley in that place. Since jamara is one of the favorite plants of mother Bhagwati, jamara is grown to please Bhagwati. Jamara grown in this way is used as an offering to the goddess on the day of Vijayadashami.
