dear Madame


I feel blessed to have found this blog. I would like to perform this pooja for my daughter who is having speech and analytical problems. I would like to know if we have to make this yantra on a silver plate with honey or water? and also what should we do with this honey after the pooja? also we do not get flowers where we live, is it alright if we do with akshathas...awaiting your reply eagerly.

Thanks and Regards
