Shri Satyanarayan Puja Dates 2019

Shri Satyanarayan Puja and Katha Dates


Shri Satyanarayan Puja is performed to get blessings of Sri Narayan or Sri Hari Vishnu. Satyanarayan is considered an manifestation of truth. In other words, God Satyanarayan and truth are one and the same thing. There is no fixed day to perform Satyanarayan Puja but if you do it on the day of Purnima or Pournami, it is considered highly auspicious. Sri Vishnu incarnated as Lord Satyanarayana to break Lord Indra’s pride. Satyanarayan puja is first mentioned in Skanda Purana.

Fast is observed on Purnima day for God Satyanarayan. The Satyanarayan Puja can be done in the morning as well as in the evening. However Satyanarayana Puja carried out in the evening is considered more appropriate as devotees can break the fast with Prasadam in the evening.

Here we have mentioned Shri Satyanarayana Puja dates 2019 for evening time. Thus Satyanarayan Puja day listed below might fall on Chaturdashi i.e. one day before Purnima. Devotees who prefer to do Puja in the morning must make sure that Puja is done within Purnima Tithi. On the day of Purnima, Tithi might get over during morning time and thus Purnima Tithi is not always suitable for morning Puja.

Lord Satyanarayan, an extremely kind and gracious form of Lord Vishnu is worshipped. Satya means “truth” and narayana means, “The highest being”. Panchamritam (a mixture of milk, honey, ghee/butter, yogurt and sugar) is used to clean the deity, in the form of Saligram, a divine stone depicting Maha Vishnu. Panjiri, which is sweet roasted flour of wheat, banana and other fruits are used as Prasad. Tulsi leaves are also added into Prasad.

Sri Satyanarayan Swami Katha or Satyanarayan Vrat Katha, is then recited by the person observing the fast alongwith family members. After the Katha, Satyanarayan's Aarti ("Om Jai Lakshmi Ramana") is performed with full devotion and then prasad is offered to the deity and then distributed to all members of the family.
