Ghatasthapana Puja Significance
To conduct the pious Ghatasthapana puja on the first day of Navaratri, folks fill an earthen pot or clay pot with 'holy water,' and then barley seeds are sown in it. Additionally, a Swastik is made on a Kalash or pot, and one can also put sandalwood paste, five leaves, flowers, durva grass, turmeric, rice, areca nut, five gems, or a gold coin in the Kalash. After this, you can cover the mouth of the pot with five leaves of the Mango or Ashoka tree and put a lid on it, filling it with raw rice. Afterwards, take a coconut, wrap it up with a clean new red cloth, tie the Moli thread on it, and then place it on the top of your Kalash.

The whole procedure, in religious terms, is known as the ritual of Navaratri Ghatasthapana.
