Abstract

The pañcāyatanapūjā is a worship of five gods, normally Śiva, Viṣṇu, Sūrya, Gaṇeśa, and Devī (and in some cases with the addition of Kārttikeya). The most common form of worship is with five specific stones each representing one of the deities. But also small figurines and engraved yantras can be seen. The stones, figurines or yantras are placed on a tray for domestic worship with one god in the center according to specific diagrams.
