Before starting Durga Puja we have to do “KALASH STHAPANA”.
Take one Kalash (Small Pot). Fill it with water.
Put Rice, Supari, Haldi and Coin in it. Make Swastik on the Kalash and tie Moli around its neck.
Take give leaves of mango or Paan (Betal leave) Keep these on the top of Kalash.
Take one coconut . Wrap it with red cloth or moli.
Put this coconut on the top of Kalash.
Now light a lamp (Diya) and worship Maa Durga duly.
