  • General Instructions for all artis:
    1. All three pujaris should blow the counchshells together and one should wait till the other pujaris have completed blowing & again they should start together after a moment’s pause. Also, the conchshell should be rinsed with water ONLY AFTER BLOWING & not before.
    2. After Arti gets over, the conchshell should always be kept in a horizontal position (NOT VERTICAL) on the top of pot, by the left side of altar just beside the table.
    3. All three pujaris should give the ARATI LAMPS from SS RVC ALTAR ONLY. 
    4. After completion of Arati, blue cloth should be used to carefully mop the altar. Also, remove any pins, glue tack lying on the altar.
    5. The half circular platform outside the altar doors must also be mopped using RED cloth by the respective pujaris after every Arti except Mangal Arti.
    6. The kusa grass asana should be kept by the side of the table with hand during brroming/mopping. WE SHOULD NOT PUSH THE ASANA WITH OUR FEET at any time.
    7. At the completion of Arati, the bell should be kept at the end of table towards the Altar with Hanumanji facing temple hall and the Achaman pot should be kept to the left of bell on all the three tables.


  • Specific Instructions for Mangal Arti:
    1. Pujaris should report by 4:20 AM and be ready by 4:25 AM after performing Achamana, washing their feet and paying obeisances.
    2. At 4:25 AM, they should enter the altar along with the waking up seva devotees and should open the doors of their respective altar after putting up the curtains.
    3. After closing the altar, pujaris should bring a tray and collect all the drinking water glasses, flowers and Tulasi leaves from all the altars.  Also, put small tables in front of SS GN and SS RVC altar and shift the small deities there with GREAT CARE and ATTENTION.
    4. Later all 3 pujaris should assist in changing the backdrops: one to climb up the stair case, one to give the new back drop and one to fold the previous day backdrop cloth.
