Satyanarayan Puja Vidhi

The Satyanarayan puja is generally performed in reverence to the Lord Narayana, which is also a form of Lord Vishnu. In this form, the lord is considered to be the embodiment of truth. Performing the puja in the evening is often considered to be more appropriate. However, it can also be performed during the day, or early morning. On the decided day of the puja, devotees have to fast. After taking a bath, devotees can perform this puja on their own.
