Nirmalya Visarjana

As mentioned earlier, one should remove the mental screen between oneself and the lord, and perform the nirmalya visarjana.  One should remove lord’s nirmalya using one’s thumb and index finger only.  While removing, one should imagine that on the left of lord, Rudradevaru is standing and on his head he is holding a golden plate. One should dispose the nirmalya in that plate. While removing the nirmalya, one should recite (chant) Devi Sukta (Ambhrani Sukta).

One who does the nirmalya visarjana early morning everyday will be free of poverty, untimely death, and illness.

Chant the following manthra requesting Bheemasena to drive out the Kali Purusha (Evil spirits) from the Salagramas.

ಋಷಭಂ ಮಾ ಸಮನಾನಾಂ ಸಪತ್ನಾನಾಂ ವಿಷಾಸಹಿಂ|
ಹಂತಾರಂ ಶತ್ರೂಣಾಂ ಕೃಧಿವಿರಾಹಂ ಗೋಪತಿಂ ಗವಾಂ|
ಶಾಲಿಗ್ರಾಮ ಶಿಲಾಯಾಂ ತು ನಿತ್ಯಂ ಸನ್ನಿಹಿತಃ ಕಲಿಃ|
ಭೀಮಸೇನ ಮಹಾ ಬಾಹೋ ಗದಯಾ ಪೋಥಯ ಪ್ರಬೋ||

haMtAraM SatrUNAM kRudhivirAhaM gOpatiM gavAM|
SAligrAma shilAyAM tu nityaM sannihitaH kaliH|
bhImasEna mahA bAhO gadayA pOthaya prabO

Fill the Shankha with pure water & ringing the bell, perform abhisheka to the Salagramas chanting the Purusha Sukta Mantram.

Collect the water in the abhisheka plate into two separate cups or vessels. This is the Nirmalya Theertha.
The Nirmalya Theertha in one vessel should be first offered to Sri Lakshmi resident in the Shankha, Sri Hanuman, Sri Garuda, Sri Shesha and then to our saints whose Mruthika Brindavana one may have.

Then one should partake of the Nirmalya theertha by sipping three times & the fourth time, we should sprinkle it on our head by chanting the following mantra.

Akaala Mruthyu Haranam Sarva Vyadhi Nivaranam Sarva Dhurithopa Haranam Vishnu Padhodhaka Subham

Chant while partaking  1: Om Vishwaya namaha, 2: Om Tejasya Namaha, 3: Om Pragnaya Namaha, 4: Om Thuryaya Namaha

Partaking Nirmalya teertha dailywill fetch one the phala of performing fasting for 12 years.

Snana patram, Peetam, and Mantapa Dhyanam

Place both Snana Patram(Somasutra Plate) and peetam in the ordained place. Keep the already prepared argyaodhaka to the right of the Lord.

One should visualize a wonderful & splenderous Mantapa for the Lord. Chant the following mantapa dhyana mantram.
