Satyanarayana Puja
January 16th, 2010 by Sowmya

Satya means “truth” and narayana means “The highest being” so Satyanarayan means “The highest being who is an embodiment of Truth”. The Satyanarayana Vratam and Puja are very popular in Andhra Pradesh India. There is also a temple for Sri Satyanarayana Swamy at Annavaram, near Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh where this vratam is performed every day.

This puja is first mentioned in Skanda Purana, Reva Kanda by Suta Puranik to the rishis in Naimisharanya. The details are part of the Katha/”Story” that is usually read along with the puja.

This puja is usually performed on the Purnima day of every month. It is also performed on special occasions and during times of achievements as an offering of gratitude to the Lord. These occasions could include marriage, graduation, start of a new job, and the purchase of a new home to name a few. In addition, the performance of this most auspicious puja generally confers a child to couples trying to start a family.

The Satyanarayan puja can be performed on any day except on New-Moon. It is not a puja confined to any festivities, but Purnima (full moon day) is considered specifically auspicious for this puja. Performing this puja in the evening is considered more appropriate. However one can perform this puja in the morning as well.

This puja is simple and can be performed by anyone and does not require a priest to perform it. The complete Satyanarayana Puja is now available at our site in multiple Indian scripts (Thanks to Aksharamukha transliterator). Please see the links below for the pdf file of your choice:

    Excellent help to people who want to do the vratam without the help of a priest.

    Just one suggestion: I needed the 5 stories in Telugu but except the stories the whole vratam is in Telugu. Is it possible to publish the stories in Telugu? Thanks.
