Deva Pujana begins after the pancakarmas.
(2) Deva Pujana: Prathvi pujana is the first step here. We are born and brought-up in the lap of mother earth. Our life has no existence without its shelter and support. This motherland is thus like a devata to us. Therefore the earth (pr athvi), the motherland is worshiped before the principal God (istadevata) of the upasana. As a mark of gratitude, one spoon of water is sacrificed to the earth and it is worshiped by flower etc and paid regards (pranaama) while chanting the following mantra— with the sentiments that we should also be endowed with the endurance, generosity and forbearance like the earth.

Twam CaDhareya Mam Devi, Pavitrath Kura Casanam |
Invocation of Gayatri:
Invocation of the Adi Sakti Gayatri is then prayedthrough the following mantra with the intrinsic feel (through the depth of the heart) that the divine power of Gayatri is descending and consecrating in our inner self.

Gurudev Pt.Shriram Sharma Acharya and Van. Mataji Smt. Bhagavati Devi Sharma — for the adept performance of the Upasana, we invoke the grace of the guru by the following mantra:
