Cook something sweet Sev,Rawo,sweet curd, Dar ni Pori…..etc. for Breakfast.

Clean the place where you are going to SAGAN and put chowk  (if you have carpet, you may want to put a piece of thick cardboard or wood).  If you have a patla clean the patla and put chowk on it (5-7)  and place on the chowk on the floor. 

Person for whom you are doing sagan  (for Birthday, Navjote, Engagement…..etc)  will come and stand from behind the patla facing preferably the EAST direction (optional) with his/her Right foot first.  While getting down, get down with Right foot.

The person who is doing the Sagan will first put Tili on the right foot of the person, then left foot and then on the head.

Small round teeli for the girl and long  vertical one for the boy. (The long vertical mark symbolizes a ray of sun and round mark symbolizes the moon.

Now put Garland first

Then give paan, Sopari, Harad, Badam,sakar and coconut.

Give  ENVELOPE or GIFT

Put small piece of sakar with curd (or use spoon)

Take little rice in your palm and stick it on the teeli on forehead.

Take Ovarna

Let everyone meet and give their gifts.

The person has to get down from the front side with right foot.

Once the person gets down you may sprinkle little  Rose water on the chowk.

  1. It would be nice to give importance of all the items to be put in ses.
    Importance and relevance of paan, kharak, sopari, chokha, flowers etc.
