 Sri Satyanarayana Puja is performed on the full moon and for auspicious occasions like marriages, blessing a new home, birthdays, or opening a new business. It is believed to bestow good health, prosperity, success, and happiness on those who practice it

our faith anf believe is that listening to the katha or story and performing the puja will help them fulfil their desires, that it will bring prosperity, remove fear and free them from bondage. While emotional and sincere chanting of the katha has been known to bring positive results, they are more the result of a true understanding and implementation of the essence and complete message of the katha, rather than the fruits of the ritual itself.

Sri Satyanarayan vrat katha comprises five chapters, with a clear message that the followers of Sri Satyanarayan Bhagwan must lead the life of truthfulness both in deed and word. The katha begins with the Lord explaining to sage Narada the right way to lead one's life. The second chapter focuses on the reformation of a woodcutter who, thirsty on a sunny day, accidentally walks into the house of a Brahmin and watches him performing the puja. On being asked why he was performing the ritual, the Brahmin explains the secret of his 'wealth' to the stranger, motivating the woodcutter to vow that he too, would perform the puja after completing his business for the day. The woodcutter achieves significantly higher sales on that day and performs the puja with great sincerity. The Satyanarayan puja performed with clear understanding and bhaav channels our mind to good thoughts, helping us overcome negative thoughts, and deeds.

The third chapter begins with a similar message, and begins with an incident about a king named Ulkamukh who Shrare the objective 

of his worship truthfully with an unknown merchant. However, the merchant defaults - first by deferring the fulfilment of the promise and finally, by forgetting to fulfil it at the chosen time. Coincidentally, he gets into trouble and finds himself in prison, under false charges. The merchant's family makes amends and his relatives resolve to lead a truthful life. Eventually when the merchant is released, he turns to a life of truth.

The Lord once again in the fourth chapter tests the resoluteness of the merchant on his adherence to the principles of truthfulness, open-heartedness and transparency. The merchant, however, acting contrary to the behaviour of the Brahmin of the second chapter - who shares the secret of his wealth with an unknown stranger - hides the contents of his Boat from the Lord and again loses his wealth. Making amends, he prays to the Lord in a touching manner, extolling the grandeur of the Lord and his maya and how we with innumerable shortcomings continually need his kindness and guidance.

The katha guides the followers to treat everyone with equality, love and compassion and remain free from pride and arrogance. The fifth and last chapter is about a king, who, out of arrogance, refuses to pray to God in the company of poor shepherds. He ignores their prasad and consequently loses his empire, family and wealth which he regains only upon performing the puja together with the poor shepherds.

The katha emphasises that those who lead the life of truthfulness, love, compassion and equality are bestowed with the kindness and blessings of the Lord. But, distracted as we are, busy with our daily chores and worldly pursuits, we forget these basic principles. Anyone practising the principles of truth, compassion and universal love always receives the love and blessings of the Lord and leads a life of peace and contentment. The stories related are to be seen in this perspective: Pujas and other rituals are not ends in themselves; they are meant as aids to further our understanding of human behaviour and to make us realise the sanctity of all life, regardless of one's station in life
