How to do Kalash Puja for Durga Navaratri Pooja?

Kalash is prepared with a copper or bronze pot and pour pure water in it. Place some akshata, flowers and mango leaves in the water. Decorate the Kalash or ghata with turmeric power, vermilion powder, and sandalwood powder. Draw Swastika or Om or Trishul on the Kalasham.

Recite the mantra for Kalashamand and install the kalasha at Durga pooja place or pandal. In some places, Kalasha is installed and kalash puja is performed everyday during Navratri. In some places, Kalash puja is performed on the first day or on Ashwin Padyami day and the Kalasha remains unmoved till the end of the pooja on Mahanavami or Vijaya Dashami.

In some places, on Mahalaya Amavasya, the day before Kalasha Sthapana, Brahmin Santarpana is done.
