Satayanarayan Puja

About It And Why It Is Observed:

Sri SatyaNarayana Puja is mostly observed on the Purnima or full moon day (according to English Calendar) of every month. It can also be observed on the eve of any special occasion. For example, it has been seen of people observing the puja upon achieving success, upon a wish being fulfilled, for a good cause, entering a new home, starting a venture, etc.

Basically, Lord Vishnu/Narayana is worshiped on the eve of SatyaNarayana Puja. Though it can be observed on any full moon day, those like the months of Kartik (October-November), Chaitra (March-April) Visakh (May-June), Shravan (July-August), are most preferred. New Moon Day is also a nice occasion for the puja to be performed.

Underneath Advantages of Observing the Satya Narayan Puja

The prime aim of observing the SatyaNarayana Puja is to take the life through an honorable path or to bring spirituality in it. It is believed that the puja is one of the finest ways of bringing devotion towards Lord Vishnu, the ultimate almighty and source of divine happiness. The mantras chanted or the tales spelled encourage people to move on the path of morality.

One of the noble rituals behind the puja is the Hawan performed. The ingredients used for Hawan are extremely efficient in terms of purifying the surrounding air. At the same time, the mindful listening of the chants improves the concentration of the practicioner.


There is no written or literal prove of the origin of Sri SatyaNarayana Puja. Rather, it is considered to be the ritual recommended by the priests in antique time for those indulged with Grihasthasram( in their marital phase). The positive consequence of the families observing then inspires the next generation and hence it followed. It is considered one of the most sacred pujas in all parts of India.

In fact, it is also observed frequently among the Buddhists and Hindus in foreign nations.

How It Is Observed:

Coming to the rituals, in SatyaNarayana Puja, the observer is asked to offer certain Prasad. In general, fruits, grain flours, and sweets are offered as the Prasad. It would be even better if the person can observe fast for the whole day. Once the Hawan and Satya Narayan Katha are ended, the practitioners take aarti, and the Prasad is distributed among the participants and the neighbors.
