Apart from the poojas performed for navagraha, Vedas mention many other powerful poojas which are performed in order to get blessings from a particular God or a pair of God and Goddess like Shiv Parvati and Lakshmi Narayan. A large number of such poojas are performed for different gods and goddesses depending upon what kind of result is required by the native and sometimes some natives get some of these poojas performed just in order to connect more closely and strongly to their Isht Devta. Some pandits believe that most of such poojas should be performed at religious places like Trayambakeshwar temple of Lord Shiva in Nasik, Ujjain, Haridwar, Gayaji or Badrinath dham but these poojas can bless the native with their good results even if they are performed in the nearby temple of your town and the most important thing for these poojas to be effective is the procedure or vidhi of these poojas. The vidhi or procedure for most of these Vedic poojas is similar with some changes like the Mantra which is chanted during a pooja, the day of start and completion of a pooja, Havan samagri to be used during the completion day, things to be donated on the day of completion of a pooja and some other things may be different in case of different poojas. In today’s article we will discuss the procedure for conducting a Vedic Shri Santan Gopal Puja in order to get specific good results from this pooja and from Lord Krishna.
