For puja preparation, place at the right-hand side a red cloth on a hoisted platform and put in idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesh on it after gracing them with jewelry and clothes. Once this is done, Navgraha gods must be placed on the left-hand side on a hoisted platform under the white cloth. Prepare carefully nine slots of Akshata (unbroken rice) for placing Navgraha on a white cloth and sixteen slots of wheat must be prepared for the red cloth. You should perform puja with all the important rituals.
