Pasupu Ganapathi Puja

Turmeric Ganesh Puja, Pasupu ganapthi puja Vidhanam,  How to perform Ganapathi Pooja Vidhanam.

This pooja is done to the ganesh made with turmeric (called pasupu ganapati) so that there would be no vighnas(obstacles) during the main pooja. This is the pooja that has to be performed before doing any pooja irrespective of the god whom we are worshipping. As stated earlier this helps us to complete the pooja without any obstacles.
Starting of Pooja:

Every time we do a sankalpa(reason for doing the pooja) we have to leave akshintalu along with water. Take akshintalu in the right hand and pour water with left hand over the right hand and leave the akshinatalu along with water into the plate.
Then we have to do pooja to the glass with water which is to be used for pooja, in this we try to make the water more pure by trying to get water from all the pure rivers into this using mantras:
Worshiping the glass: we need to apply sandalwood paste at three places around the glass and then apply pasupu(turmeric) and kum kum on the sandalwood pase recting the below sloka.
