    I have performed Pooja for Ganesh Chaturthi in US today. I felt that my Sastrigal was by myside thanks to Veda Bhavan. Shri Sriram Ganapadigal has paced the slokas so nicely that it provided time for me to repeat . I would like to support the efforts of Veda Bhavan in some way. Please let me know

    Dear Vedhabhavanam Moderators,
    Thank you very much. This is a great service and you are keeping the tradition alive by doing such a service in the current world where everything has become very materialistic and commercial.
    Thank you once again.
    With warm regards,

    Thank you for the Vinayaga Chathurthi Pooja Audio.
    Excellent attempt to guide people like me who wish to perform the Pooja under proper guidance.

  15. Rajesh Muraliganesh Reply

    Awesome Audio, if a video is created for the same, that would favor even more better for audience

  16. Saiprasadh rajagopalan Reply

    Info provided is very useful to perform vinayaka chadurthy Pooja.Thank you..

  17. DIWAKARAN Reply

    The introduction, explanation, pronunciation and speed have all been done with utmost care and purpose. With adequate publicity, almost all smartha brahmins, who were hitherto performing the pooja with mistakes, can now perform it correctly and without any difficulty. My suggestion is that the vaadhyar can tell the names of the flowers and leaves also. In some places, the disposal of akshadai and offering of argyam seem to be missing. I may be wrong. Kindly excuse me if I am not correct. My respectful regards to you all for simplifying the sacred work.

    Please also mention the detailed procedure in the audio form for the second day punarpooja

  19. Anantharamakrishnan Reply

    As there was no proper guide to perform my beloved Vinayaka Chathurthi Pooja, it was always difficult to perform the pooja by just reading the sloka books. Your audio files are the varaprasadhm for people like us. Thanks a lot for your service.

    Superb, crystal clear, we look forward to other Pooja Vidhanam (like Saraswathi Pooja, Venkatachalapathi (Samarathani ) Sankarathi .

  21. Subramoniam S Reply

    Thanks to Veda Bhavan and Sriram Vadhyar, we performed the Vighneshwara puja in a traditional and satisfying manner. Looking forward to more such audio guides from Sriram Vadhyar.

  22. Venkat Reply

    Thank you. Like last time ( Yajur Upakarma), this too was clearly explained and the mantras were delivered in a easy to follow manner. A small doubt.. I used to follow the “vradha Puja vidhanam”. In that the ashtothrasadha namavali seems to be in slightly different order and may be with some other namas as well.
    Just wanted to check if we can still use either of them.
    Thanks again for your wonderful service.

    Thanks for the post, I usually download audio procedure to do vrata poojas but this time was different. The pace of the audio was so gud and the quality and clarity was extremely nice. I could utter each and every word said. Thanks.

  24. K Venkataramani Reply

    I had the satisfaction of performing the Vinayaka Puja with proper swaram, Matra Balam, proper pronunciation & proper sandhi:. In the Pradhana poojai, after Kalasa poojai, Ghanta poojai, Avahanam and before Shodaso Upacharam, Is it not required to perform “Pranap prathishtai”

    Thank you Veda Bhavan for the above Service.
