• Arrive in advance, before the event begins, in order to settle down and participate in the prayer without haste.
• During the puja, remain calm, focused and, if possible, silent. Those who do not participate directly by the fire can pray, meditate, chant mantras or silently watch the process. On this day, it is best not to waste your energy on anxiety, haste and unnecessary talking.
• Traditionally, prasad (consecrated food) is shared only after a pujari (a person conducting yagya) has left the venue. If the portion is too large for you, and you can’t eat the treat all at once, take it home to finish it later. Do not throw prasad away. This food is consecrated, it carries blessings for you.
• Donations made by participants are also considered to be a part of the ceremony. The size of the donation is determined by each participant independently.
