The Abhishek Patra that you see here is made of brass and is rectangular in shape with fine finishing. On the tray of the Patra, the deities are seated, bathed, dressed, and decorated accompanied with hymns, chanting of the holy names of God, and Sankirtan. It then opens into a narrow passage from where the ‘Charanamrita’ or the sacred nectar is collected in another metallic vessel. This nectar has a great spiritual significance; obtained from the Lotus feet of the deities, it is regarded as the elixir of life which has the potency of liberating the souls from the cycle of birth and death and attain the abode of the Supreme Lord.


After being collected, it is then distributed to the devotees, who sip it from their palms. This Abhishek Patra is suitable for bathing small deities. Its body is carved out in different designs and patterns; the base is gracefully engraved with lotus petals giving it an auspicious appearance.



The Power of Worship: Performing an Abhishek with Purpose

Abhishek Patra is a vessel made of different materials such as brass, steel, copper, and bronze. It is mainly used for performing a ritual known as “Abhishek” or “Abhishekam”. In this ritual, the deities are bathed with various liquid ingredients such as honey, water, milk, etc before dressing them. It comes in various shapes and sizes depending upon the number and size of the deities to be placed. There is a flat plate or tray on the top for placing the deity on it. The vessel is designed in such a way that there is an outlet or passage in the tray so that all the liquids are poured out and collected in a separate vessel.

1. Establish a place for worship

Before starting the Pooja, you should clean the area where you will perform the worship. It could be the deity/pooja room or any other vacant place. You may also sprinkle a few drops of Gangajal to make the space pure.

The required items are Abhishek Patra, a cleansed conch shell, five Pancha Patras or water pots, a receptacle for Charanamrit (liquid mixture), 1 cup of milk, ½ cup of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of sugar in water, and 1 tablespoon of ghee.

4. Perform Abhishek

For performing the Abhishek of the deity, first of all, fill all the liquid ingredients (milk, honey, yogurt, sugar syrup, and ghee) in five different unused or new containers (Pancha Patra). You could also make a mixture of these. If you are worshiping the deity of Radha Krishna, Lord Jagannath, Lord Vishnu, or Lord Narasimha, you must put a Tulsi leaf in each of the ingredients. Now, gently place the deity on the tray of the Abhishek Patra. Take the cleansed conch and pour one liquid ingredient into it; you could start with milk. With your right hand, bathe the deity with all the liquids one by one by titling the elongated end of the conch. You must chant some Pranam Mantras while performing this worship. If you do not know any specific mantras, you can simply chant the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna / Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/Hare Ram Hare Ram / Ram Ram Hare Hare.

5. Collect all the liquids

Now that the Abhishek is done, it is time to collect the liquid mixture into a separate container. You can collect either by slightly tilting the Abhishek Patra or pushing through the passage using your hand.

6. Clean and dress the deity

Take a dry towel and clean the deity to remove any stains or drops of liquid ingredients used in the Abhishek. It is the time to decorate the deity with a beautiful dress, flower garlands, and different ornaments.
