Kedara Vrat Vidhanam

Kedara Vrat Vidhanam or Kedara Puja Vidhanam

Kedara Vrat is to be performed on Ashwayuja sukla Ashtami.Kedara vrat goes on for 21 days and hence would last on the Aswayuja Amavasya or Ashwin Amavasya. This is known as Ekavimsathi pooja or vrat.

Kedareshwara Vrat

As the tradition before we go ahead with any work or pooja we must first worship Lord Ganesha, the god of obstacles(Vighnas) for his blessings, so that the pooja is performed without any obstacles.

The Ganesha is normally prepared with Turmeric and called as Pasupu Ganapathi Puja or the Trumeric Ganapati Pooja.

Perform the Pasupu Ganapathi Pooja .
