How to Perform a Havan. This post will guide you step by step to perform Havan in your home or office.

The priest conducting the ‘Havan’ must sit in the South direction, facing the North. The head of the house must sit in the west direction, facing the east.

Set up the pooja ‘Samagri’ like ghee, cotton wicks, tilak items, halwa or sweets and flowers in a plate. You can keep other pooja stuff like ‘Kalawa’ and other flowers on another plate.

Fill the four bowls with water for the puja participants.

Tie the ‘kalava’ around the lota (‘Kalash’) and fill it with water and keep it near the south-west corner of the ‘Havan Kund’.

Start the puja by chanting the ‘Vedic Mantras’ – ‘Om Bur Bhuvah Swah, Tat Savitur Varenyam, Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi, Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat’

– This can be followed by the ‘Aachaman Mantras’:

  • ‘Om Amrito Pastaran Masi Svaha’ (Drink Water)
  • ‘Om Amrita Pidhaan Masi Svaha’ (Drink)
  • ‘Om Satyam Yash Shreer Mayi Shree Shrya Taam Svaha’ (Drink Water)

– Now, wash your hands and take a little amount of water in your left hand and now Touch the water using the mid two fingers.

– Chant these mantras:

  • ‘Om Vaangma Aasye Stu’ (Mouth)
  • ‘Om Nasorme Praano Stu’ (Nose)
