You will receive only one prasadam i.e. either oil or ghee

The instruction for ghee prasadam:

The prasadam given is ghee that has been placed at the feet of the Goddess. This ghee has been charged with mantras.

This ghee prasadam has to be mixed with a half Kilo of cow’s ghee at home. You can use any ghee that is available in the market like Amul, Nandini, GRB etc.

This ghee prasadam has to be taken for 48 days. The couple should have one teaspoon full of ghee before going to bed. The wife should avoid taking the prasadam when she has her menstrual cycle. The husband should however take it for 48 days continuously.

This prasadam has to be taken before the couple goes to bed together. The prasadam should be taken just before the husband and wife sleep together.

The ghee cannot be mixed with other food and should be taken separately. However, some people cannot tolerate ghee as it makes them nauseous. If it not possible to overcome the feeling of nausea then please mix the ghee with some simple vegetarian food like plain rice or roti and have it with your dinner.

As far as possible do not travel while taking the prasadam. Also, try not to forget taking the prasadam in between. However, if it is essential to travel or if you do forget to take the prasadam on some days then continue taking it thereafter till you complete 48 days.

There are no food restrictions while taking prasadam. The couple can continue taking non-vegetarian food.

This ghee will not go bad for more than 6 months and can be stored in either a refrigerator or at normal room temperature.

If a couple cannot visit the temple personally it is ok to get the prasadam through other people.

In the period of these 48 days, it is good if the couple can recite the mantras listed here. If time permits the mantras can be chanted 108 times after morning or evening puja. If there is insufficient time then please chant as many times as is possible for you.

Audio slokas for download are available here.

Please note that there are no other rules for chanting mantra. Please chant as you would chant any other mantra/sloka in the presence of Amman’s photo or keeping Amman’s thoughts in your mind.

Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Ghee Prasadam:

Should I stop taking treatment/medicines while taking the ghee prasadam?: 

No no no no no!! Please DO NOT stop taking any treatment or medicines. Your faith in Amman will add to the benefits of the treatment and medicines.

Your faith and the puja/prasadam will give you the additional mental strength to face your anxiety and remain calm at all times. While the puja and prasadam are extremely beneficial for this, it is not a replacement for any medication or treatment.

Travelling while using ghee prasadam:

It is ideal if the husband and wife remain together and take the prasadam for 48 days./ If the husband and wife are travelling together then please carry prasadam so you will not miss taking the prasadam. If either the husband or wife has to travel due to unavoidable circumstances then please continue the 48 days when the couple is together again.

What if I miss taking the prasadam for a day/few days?

Please try and be regular while taking the prasadam. However, if you have forgotten to take the prasadam then continue from the next day and complete 48 days.

What is my husband /wife refuses to take the prasadam?

It so happens on some occasions that one of the spouses mostly the husband and sometimes the wife refuses to take the prasadam. The reasons are varied – sometimes the spouse is not able to consume ghee in its raw form. In such cases, it can be mixed with simple vegetarian food like plain rice or roti and eaten.

In other cases, the spouse just does not have the required faith.  In such cases, the other spouse can take the prasadam alone. The main idea here is to show our devotion to Amman. Amman is the divine embodiment of Motherhood. I am sure She appreciates the devotion of Her devotees and is perfectly capable of understanding the situation as it is.

There can be no strict rules in this case. This is a matter of faith and not science. It is not rules that are important here but the spirit of our devotion and the relationship we have with the Goddess.

I have conceived before completing 48 days of ghee prasadam. Should I continue to have the prasadam?

No. Once you have found out about your pregnancy please stop taking ghee prasadam. Use the remaining ghee to light lamps in your puja room.

You should definitely consider getting the oil prasadam for your pregnancy.

After completing 48 days of taking ghee prasadam, I still have some ghee left. What should I do?

Use the remaining ghee to light lamps in your puja room.

The first time I did the puja I did not take the prasadam properly. Some time has passed. I want to take the prasadam now, should I do another puja?

Doing the puja once is sufficient. If you have stopped taking the prasadam but have some ghee leftover then please start using the same prasadam and this time around do take it seriously and complete the 48 days,

If the quantity remaining with you is not sufficient for 48 days then mix some more store brought ghee with the remaining prasadam ghee.

Procedure to use oil prasadam:

The prasadam given is castor oil that has been placed at the feet of the Goddess. This castor oil has been charged with mantras and has to be applied in small quantities over the abdomen every day. It can be applied after a bath.

The castor oil has to be applied to the abdomen when labour pains start. However these days most people obtain the prasadam as early as the third month of pregnancy while some women start in the 7th month. Women should apply a little quantity over the uterus every day. This can be applied after a bath.

I personally started using the prasadam from the first day I found out about the pregnancy (very early in the first trimester.)

When you start using the prasadam is really up to you as an individual.

There are no food restrictions while taking prasadam. The woman can continue taking non-vegetarian food.

During the period of the pregnancy, it is good if the women can recite the mantras listed here. If time permits the mantras can be chanted 108 times after morning or evening puja. If there is insufficient time then please chant as many times as is possible for you.

Please note that there are no other rules for chanting mantra. Please chant as you would chant any other mantra/sloka in the presence of Amman’s photo or keeping Amman’s thoughts in your mind.

Punugu sattam for skin diseases, cardiac diseases and other health conditions.

Lord Mulaivananathar is renowned for his powers to heal people. At this temple, he is worshipped as the Lord of health. As this is a swayambu lingam made of mud it is not possible to offer abishegam here and hence the priests do the abishegam with punugu sattam. This punugu sattam is offered to devotees as prasadam for health conditions; particularly skin diseases, cardiac problems and other surgical conditions.

It has to be noted that the punugu sattam is not always offered to Lord Mullaivananathar. It is offered on the 11th day after the new moon. This day is also called the Valarpirai Pradosham.

Once devotees obtain the punugu sattam they can apply small quantities on the affected parts of their bodies after taking a bath and offering puja at home.

Devotees can also listen to songs of Lord Mulaivanathanar. These songs are available for download here.

  2. I have been married for 3 years now and been trying for a child for the past one year. My husband and I did prayers but still no luck. We even sought medical help but unfortunately I had 2 miscarriages with the last one that happened last month . Now we are coming to kumbakonnam to do prayers at the navagraha temples. I read about this amman temple and decided to visit her. What should I prepare in advance and what are the pooja I need to do?Please give me details and thank you in advance

    • It is good to know that you are planning to visit the temple to seek blessings. No special preparations are required. If you want to offer a saree you may want to take it with you as it is not always available outside the temple.

      There is no need to book any puja in advance. Just visit the temple and you will see that the process is fairly simple.

      I wish you all the best

  6. I am very thankful to you maam for the keen interest you have shown in letting us know about the details regarding pooja performance and prasadam delivery. We are very happy with your service. we have received prasadam yesterday. we are very happy to receive amman photo, kumkum, vibhudi and ghee prasadam.But Currently my wife is in 3rd month. can she take ghee prasadam or should we use it for lighting lamps in puja?
    We have read in the FAQs related to ghee prasadam that once conceived the ghee should be used for lighting lamps in puja. But my wife feels like taking it. As ghee prasadam has divine blessings of amman it will protect baby from all troubles and keeps baby safe. please let us know whether she can take ghee prasadam or not in the entire journey of pregnancy.

    • Dear Sravanthi

      Thank you for your kind words regarding our service. Please note that in the form you have submitted it is indicated that you are trying to conceive and hence we have sent the ghee prasadam. Please do not use ghee prasadam if you are already pregnant, it is only for women who are trying to conceive.

      The prasadam for pregnancy is castor oil prasadam. The oil has to be applied on the stomach. I will write to you with further details by e-mail.

      May Garbarakshambigai Amman bless you with a safe pregnancy and easy delivery.

  17. Dear madam,

    My husband and i have been married for 5 years now. We seem to have some obstacle or the other every time we plan on conceiving. Finally in 2015 we were able to try but unfortunately had 2 miscarriages. Since then i have had a fear of conceiving but with a lot of prayers i think i am finally ready to try again. My mother-in-law heard about the goddess and got the prasadam for me. We started taking the prasadam but due to the nature of my husbands job he has to travel often and we cant seem to take the prasadam without break. Also my husband is not able to eat the ghee as is. is it ok if i give it with some bread?
    Is there any other thing i can do to get the blessing of goddess? The obstacles seem to be neverending for me.

  21. Hi,
    We have recently visited garbharakshambhika temple a month ago and been offered with ghee prasadam to get conceive, we have mixed the offered ghee with 1/2 kg pure cow ghee and together(my wife and me) having a teaspoon on everyday night before going to the bed. We started taking the ghee from March1st 2017 and we are about finsih the ghee in next 3 days or so. So far we have taken the ghee close to 30 days, but still we have to take this for remaining days to complete 48 days. Do we need to purchase another 1/2 kg cow ghee and mix within the current one? Or do we need to get ghee from temple again. Please suggest!

  22. Hi ,
    We received ghee from one of my friend and we reside at Malaysia … even before reviving ghee I had conceived and 10 weeks pregnant now .
    Please let me know if I can still start to take the ghee or not

    • Please discontinue ghee after you conceive. You can use remaining ghee to light lamps in the puja room. You can get oil prasadam and apply after completing 3rd or 7th month. It is also enough if you apply at time of labour.

  23. I want to ask that during periods i will not consume the prasad but my husband will continue for 48 after periods i had to consume for extra days to make it my husband will take for more days ?
    Please reply

    • Dear Shaifali

      Your husband should continue with the prasadam when you have periods. He can stop when he completes 48 days. You can start taking a break in eating the prasadam and continue after your periods. You need to complete 48 days.

  24. My mom prepaid ghee at home and added ghee prasadam in very hot ghee itself.
    I think it should be mixed after cooling only.

    Is it ok if we mix in hot ghee or not ? Plz give me information . Thanks in advance


    • Dear Pinky

      I am very happy that you liked the article.

      It is just smearing the ghee on the steps of the temple. The procedure is called applying kolam but in reality, it is applying the ghee on the step of the Amman Sannidhi.

      Warm Regards

    Please advise. Thank you.

    • Yes Goddess Amman is responsible for uterus related problems. You can order puja for kumkum and vibhuthi.

  39. Hi,

    Both me and my husband have consumed the ghee prasadam for 48 days and i conceived in next 10 days.. however I had a miscarriage before 3 months.. why is it happened to me??

    • Dear Preethi

      I can understand your pain and frustration. It is not easy when you are trying so hard and not getting the positive result. Sometimes things are not in our control and we cannot understand the mysterious ways that God works.
      Please continue to have faith but also develop the strength to face whatever lies in your destiny, There is no prescribed manner of performing the puja. It is only your comfort level with the Goddess, you can do it in any way that is easy for you.
      I pray that you get positive results very soon.

      I also suggest you ton start using oil prasadam as soon as you conceive.

  40. hi madam,

    We are taking ghee, in between 4 days due to travel my husband went out of chennai but i was in home , but we both ate ghee these 4 days separately.
    So shall we stop after 48 days, or again need to extend for those 4 days which we are not stay together .

    • Dear Sasi

      Total of 48 days has to be completed individually, so you need not extend it for 4 more days.

  41. I had ordered ghee prasadam yesterday… When I will get prasadam… How many days it will take ??? And when I need to order oil prasadam at which month??? Thank you

    • After the puja is performed the prasadam will reach you within 7-10 days if you are in India and 20-25 days if you live abroad.
      I personally suggest devotees to order for oil prasadam in their third month of pregnancy

    • Dear Sheelpa

      There is no food restrictions while taking the prasadam. Food consumption is individual choice.

  42. Namaste .I orderd ghee prasadam now . one problem we are lived different places for the sake of job .we met 15 days once how can we take ghee prasadam.please give me suggestions

    • Dear Sunitha

      The prasadam should be taken for 48 days in a stretch. I would suggest you to see if there is any possibility for you both to stay together and consume the prasadam together.
      Both husband and wife should consume the prasadam before sleep and should sleep together.

  43. Hi,
    I got the ghee prasad through my friend and before I could start using it my pregnancy got confirmed.
    I have not yet opened the ghee yet. So what should I do with that ghee prasadham now.
    Please confirm.

    • Dear Gayathri

      Congratulations on your pregnancy.
      You can use the ghee to light the lamp at the puja room.

    • Dear Devotee
      Thank you for writing in. If you are trying to conceive, don’t worry – there is hope as thousands of devotees who seek the blessings of this Goddess have been blessed with children. Place your faith in the merciful mother Garbarakshambigai Amman and pray for her blessings.
