On the puja shrine one should put a copper or silver pot of water called the kalash or kalasam and decorate it with flowers, haldi (turmeric), vermilion and sandalwood paste. The image of the goddess Varalakshmi is placed on this pot of water. Devotees offer fresh sweets and fruits to the deity and seek blessings.
