Kanya Puja is considered very important on the day of Mahanavami. There are some things about Kanya Puja which are very important for you to know. The tradition of feeding girls is described in Niyasindhu and Durgacharan method. There are five main activities of eating Kumari Bhojan (Kanya Bhojan) which are very special.
First of all, wash the hands and feet of the girls who have come, apply tilak on their heads, perform aarti, feed them, give them dakshina and receive their blessings.
Keep in mind that girls should face east and offer Arghya and recite poetry.
Niranjan should be done facing south-east and Tika should be done facing north-east.
Along with this, food should be given to them facing upwards, Dakshina should be given looking upwards and it is considered appropriate to take blessings while looking towards the earth.
Another important thing to be noted is that the virgins below 2 years of age should be seated first, then the seats should be given to 3 years old and then other girls, while one should sit on the seat of Kush himself.
Halwa, puri and black gram vegetable are offered to the mother. For offering to the Mother Goddess and for Kanya Pooja, halwa, puri and black gram without onion and garlic are prepared and fed to all the girls, their blessings are sought by touching her feet. The house where virgins eat happily on Navami day brings positivity in that house.
