Lord Satyanarayan is a manifestation of Shri Vishnu, who is also known as Narayan, the one who symbolizes eternal truth. This embodiment of the Lord represents truth and truth alone. There are various ways of expressing devotion to God, and offering prayers while performing certain rituals is one way of doing it. One of the most frequently performed pujas by Hindus is the Satyanarayan Puja, which can be conducted on any ordinary day. One need not wait for a festival to organise it. Nonetheless, the ekadashi tithi (eleventh day of the Lunar fortnight according to the Hindu Luni-solar calendar) and purnima tithi (Full Moon) day are considered ideal for offering puja to Lord Satyanarayan. Lord Satyanarayan is a manifestation of Shri Vishnu, who is also known as Narayan, the one who symbolizes eternal truth. This embodiment of the Lord represents truth and truth alone. Therefore, one cannot ignore the repercussions of embracing falsehood, deceit or hatred. As stated above, any person can perform the Satyanarayan puja on any day without having to wait for a tithi. Nonetheless, the purpose of the puja is to invite as many people as possible, recite the katha associated with it, and to distribute the  prasad  (food offered as naiveidhya) to the Lord. It is believed that one can get rid of all woes by keeping a vrat and performing the puja with devotion. Thus by doing so, the devotee can appeal to the Lord to shower his compassionate grace on him/her. And thus, he/she shall not only invite auspiciousness to his/her life also makes his/her guests feel blissful by sharing the benefits of the puja. Anyone irrespective of caste, creed, age and gender can conduct the puja at their home or workplace. It can also be performed either before the engagement ceremony or marriage. One can even do it before launching a new business or an initiative. Therefore, the Lord lays emphasizes on bhakti (devotion) and not the stature, financial background or caste of a devotee or the occasion. This specific puja is meant for erasing all the barriers in society and teaming up as one unit to chant the name of God, who represents eternal truth.
