    hi members,
    I got the simple methods for skanda shashti vratham,

    Non-vegetarian food is completely avoided during the period.
    Some people also avoid garlic and onions.
    Those who are observing the fast make it a point to read scriptures related to Lord Muruga or recite the Kanta Shasti Kavasam or Subramaniya Bhujangam.
    Most devotees also visit Skanda temples during the period.

    When it comes to Kanda Shasti fasting, some devotees only take a single meal a day.
    Some take the meal at noon and others at night.
    Some devotees confine to fruits and juices during the 6-day period.


    Here is a simple method to perform Skanda Shasti Puja at home. You can do this Puja on all six days of the Skanda Shasti Vratam or on the Soorasamharam day.

    Before beginning any Hindu puja try to create a calm and pleasant atmosphere. Try to keep all the puja items near you.


    Puja Items Needed


    Small idol or picture of Ganesha
    A vel or picture of Lord Subrahmanya
    Sandal Paste, water, turmeric, kumkum, flowers and usual puja items

    After bath, clean the puja area.

    First pray to Lord Ganesha for removing all obstacles.

    Now the main Puja begins

    First meditate on Lord Muruga – You can do this silently or by chanting Om vali devasena samedha Shri Subrahmanya Swaamine namaha dhyaayaamii
    Now invoke Lord Muruga – Take the idol or picture or Vel and keep it near you or hold it in your hands. You can silently pray to Muruga or chant Om Vali devasena… swaamine namaha aavaahayaamii
    Now you can place the idol in the appropriate place chosen by you in the puja area – you can chant – Om aasanam samarpayaamii
    Now you can sprinkle some water – Om…namaha arghyam
    Now you can pour some water on the feet or near the Vel – Om… namaha paadhyam
    Sprinkle some water again – Om... namaha aachamaniyam
    Now you can sprinkle rose water or usual water – Om… oupachaarika snaanam
    Sprinkle some water again as final purification – Om...snaanaanandharam aachamaniyam
    Now you can offer turmeric paste or if you have special dress for idol you can offer it –Om... vastraartham akshadaam
    Now you can offer Sandal Paste to the Vel or idol – Om gandhaan dhaarayaami
    Now you can do decorations with flowers or garlands – Om...gandhsyopari alankaaranaartham akshadaam
    Now you can offer kum kum – Om...haridraa kumkumam
    Finally, you can offer some flowers – Om...pshpaih poojayaami

    Now you can light the lamp and chant Skanda shashti kavacham, Subrahmanya Bhujangam or read Skanda Purana or any tale related to Lord Muruga.


    You can also perform archana after lighting the lamp or your usual method of daily puja with camphor and agarbathis.


    If you have prepared any food (navediyam) you can offer it to the lord and perform Arathi.


    At the end of the Puja you can thank Lord Ganesha for helping in successfully conducting the pooja.
