Then perform the pooja rituals. which includes offering, Vastra (New Clothes) Phalam (Fruits) , Pushpam (Flowers) , Gandham ( aromatic scents like sandalwood paste) and Prasadam (Food offerings) to the Deities.
At the conclusion of the pooja one must do a aarti and offer teertham followed by Prasadam (Share the food offerings) to all who are present.
In the end you need to offer a token Dakshina (Donation).
*Aarti: Light a camphor on a plate and wave it in a circular motion around the deity and then show it to all the attendees . The attendees pay their respect by putting their palms over the flame and touching their eyes. Some may offer token donations on the plate.
* Teertham: This is a bowl that contains the teertham. It can me made with pancha amruta or simply plain water with a few Tulasi (holy basil) leaves in it. This is the same bowl or goblet whch was used in the pooja and now the water has received the holy blessings.
