Customs:

On the day previous to the nombu, one must have an oil bath. Before lunch, prepare the rice flour for the kozakkattai. Grind for “ raw rice idli” ( customary not to use boiled rice idli for naivedyam – this is one’s choice & convenience).

In the evening decorate the puja mandapam suitably. Draw “ maakkolam” inside & outside the mandapam. Draw one in the drawing room or foyer to “ invite amman”.

Puja mandapam or Amman should face East.

Clean Amman face, “sombu”, plate, lamps & other puja vessels. Draw kolam on a palakai & keep the plate on it. On the plate spread 4 cups + one handful of rice. Put chandanam & kumkum on all five sides of the sombu. Fill slightly more than half the sombu with rice. Keep also, 2 vethalai, 2 pakku, 2 manjal kizangu,one coin(silver or copper), one lemon, traditional “ karukumani kaatholai” ( available as such ), inside the sombu.

Apply manjal, sandanam, kumkum to a coconut. Fix this on the sombu, surrounded by mango leaves. The “kudumi” should be upward. Decorate the Amman face & fix that against the coconut, fixing the back tightly against the “ sombu” , if necessary tying with a thread. Then decorate with jewels, dress etc & keep a brand new blouse piece.

Now keep this over the rice on the plate. Keep the thazambu spread out into petals, decoratively on both sides. Decorate with lotus etc.Put a small garland & light a lamp near Amman.

That night it is customary to make Pongal, sambar & a payasam.

Next day, have a head bath & it is traditional to wear a 9 yds saree. In the entrance of the house, put a kolam, keep a palakai facing East & keep the Amman, to invite her inside the house for the puja.

To invite Amman, Do naivedyam with vethalai, pakku, pazam, a broken coconut, do dhoopam & neeranjanam, Do arathi. Then singing “ Varalakshmi, raave maa intiki”, bring the amman on the plate inside the house & keep inside the mandapam.
