Tirtha Pooja

Now the ritual of abhisheka takes place. While the priests chant the Purushha suukta, the Swamiji pours holy water on Sri Krishna from the golden pots. After collecting the poured water in the tiirtha pot, the icon is gently wiped with a silken cloth.

Sandalwood paste and flowers are offered and then naivedya of pan cake, butter, jaggery, pudding, coconut, banana, and betel leaves and nuts is offered. Eight aarati-s are then waved.
