Sit facing East and place the havan khund in front of you. Take the lota of water and place some white rice and flower in side. Fold the end of a mango leaf and place it in the lota. Churn the water in the lota saying "Om shree gangaa maataa namaha aawahayaami" (this is to invoke Mother Ganga in the lota.)
