|Satyanarayana is the Narayana form of Lord Vishnu. The Lord in this form is considered an embodiment of truth. Satyanarayana is worshipped commonly by Hindus in their homes with family and friends, usually on a full moon (poornima) day of the month. In this puja called Satyanarayana Pooja, people worship by reciting the gracious story of Lord Satyanarayana. This story was originally told by Lord Vishnu himself to the sage Narada for the benefit of human kind. This pooja is conducted to ensure abundance in one’s life. Many people carry out this pooja immediately after or along with an auspicious occasion like a marriage or moving into a new house or any other success in life. The Satyanarayana Pooja can be performed on any day. It is not a pooja confined to any festivities. But Poornima (full moon day) or Sankranthi are considered to be most auspicious days for this pooja.
