The festive season has begun with Varalakshmi Nombu,Krishna Jayanthi which would be followed by Vinayaga Chathurthi,Saraswathi Pooja,Deepavali.Here in Tamilnadu clay is used to make pillaiyar.Though it was made by hands those days now moulds are used.

The procedures in each house differ.We buy the clay pillaiyar do Abhishegam with Oil,Diraviya Podi,Rice Flour,Turmeric powder,Sandal powder,Curd,Milk,Tender coconut,Lime juice,Mixed fruits,Vibudhi.Also keep in mind all these should be used in small quantities as the idol is made of clay.

A wooden plank is decorated with kolam and the idol is placed on it

Using sandal powder and kugumam keep pottu(bindi)

Wear a white thread across the shoulder of the idol(poonul)

Keep a coin on the stomach

Decorate with an umbrella,flowers and Erukkam poo malai

Make Kozhukattais and serve on banana leaf along with rice,dal,sundal,payasam

Fruits and Aval,Pori are also placed for Neivediyam
