It shouldn’t be done during Amavasya and night time.

But, Nakshatra Chitra nd Vaidhriti Yoga should be avoided. Some may advise you to perform the ritual during Choghadiya Muhurta, but our scriptures don’t allow the same.

Kalash Preparation

Steps for the preparation of Kalash before doing Ghatasthapana are as follows:

  1. Take the wide clay pot and spread first the layer of clean soil and then sow the grains then the second layer of soil near the periphery of the pot. The final layer of soil onto the pot. You can also use little water to settle down the soil.
  2. Tie the kalaya thread on the neck of the Kalash and fill the same with Ganga Jal. Then drop Supari, Scent, Akshat, coins, and Durva grass. Before covering the lid of Kallash, set 5 leaves of Ashoka at the edge of Kalash.
  3. The last step is the covering of un-peeled coconut with red cloth. Tie kalaya around the coconut for fastening. This coc0nut prepared has to place on the top of Kalash which is made in step 2. Now, put the kalash in the center of clay pot prepared in step 1. This whole arrangement is the kalash.
