Do not use garlic and onion
Both garlic and onion are ingredients used in every home for cooking. If Ganesha is installed in your house, you should take special care not to use garlic and onions while making Bhoga to Ganesha.
Don’t offer Tulsi to Ganesha
The use of Tulsi is prohibited in the worship of Lord Ganesha. Using Tulsi in Ganesha Puja does not give good results. In fact, Tulsi had proposed marriage to Ganesha. Because Ganesha does not accept this and Tulsi curses Ganesha. Angered by this, Ganesha cursed her to marry the demon.
Install a new idol of Ganesha
If you want to enshrine Ganesha in your home this year, then buy a new idol and bring it home. If you have an old idol, immerse it in water. Also, keep in mind that two Ganesha idols should not be kept in the house.
Do not visit the idol in the dark
If there is darkness near the Ganesha idol, then do not visit him. Before visiting, make sure there is good lighting. Seeing the idol of God in darkness is not considered auspicious.
Don’t wear black and blue clothes before pooja
According to beliefs, black and blue clothes should not be worn in the worship of any deity. You can use black coloured clothes in the worship of Lord Shani. So keep in mind that black and blue coloured clothes should not be worn even in Ganesha Puja.
