Ganesh Gauri Pujan Vidhi

To prepare for the puja, clean the house, decorate the puja area, and place a platform with a red cloth for the idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Gauri. Wash your hands, sip water, and declare your intention to perform the puja. Invite Lord Ganesha and Goddess Gauri to be present, then bathe the idols with water, milk, curd, ghee, and honey.

Put them in new clothes and decorate them with jewelry. Apply sandalwood paste to their foreheads and provide yellow powder, unbroken rice, betel nuts, cloves, cardamom, fruits, flowers and sweets. Light a lamp and incense sticks. Offer food, do aarti and pray for your wishes. Walk clockwise around the idols. If possible, offer Dakshina to the Brahmins.
