|The deity is daily
bathed with fragrant water in which the buds of big Champaka flowers have been soaked. For
burning the lamps, only ghee (clarified butter) has to be used at the rate of one ollock
per lamp per day. The shepherds would get 90 goats, 48 cows or 16 buffaloes free for
supplying the above quantity of ghee.
The daily offering to the deity consists of cooked rice (rice hulled from paddy stocked
for not less than four months should be used for cooking purposes), vegetable dishes,
ghee, dhall, rice boiled in milk, and pansupari. On festival days, the offering consists
of eight varieties of cooked rice (mixed with tamarind, coconut, limejuice, jaggery,
gingelly, curd, etc.). Other items include cake made with dhall, rice, pepper and mustard;
vegetable dishes, fried vegetables, sugar, plantain
fruits, tamarind, curd and ghee, and other items.
