To be very honest, in our daily routine of prayers / chanting, we are just lighting a ghee lamp ( morning and evening, which again is missed sometimes ), incense sticks before Lord. We are not offering any food to Lord. We keep water for Lord in a small cup which is not changed daily. Recently got a Tulsi ji to whom till now we are putting water daily morning, and lighting ghee lamp in evening.
The food which is cooked is not offered to Lord to make if Prasadam before eating.
Me being a beginner in KC, I feel guilt that we are not offering anything to Lord, but to be honest not doing anything also in this regards might be because I dont know what to do.
So I take this opportunity to ask you great devotees to guide me what to start with in terms of offering daily to Lord in terms of ghee lamps, incense sticks, water, food, pushpam, patram, phalam, toyam....
Only request here is when I say "to start with", please guide me with beginners steps and not full fledged, as I want to gradually start doing this with full conviction.
- I am a very beginner in KC, trying to practice since last one year
- currently doing 8 rounds / day
- fortunate to have association of a few devotees
- We still use onion in our food sometimes ( pls let me know if this should be abandoned immediately or this can be avoided gradually )
Thanks in advance, yas,
