Every shraddhavan was to draw three Mooshaka (mouse) sketches on a piece of paper. A parikrama with asoop(Indian traditional device used for winnowing)containing the offerings of pulses, rice, bananas and leaves for Aadimata was performed. During the parikrama, shraddhavans received the darshan of a total of 24 images. The leaves in the soop were to be offered in the Jala Kund(water body) and the rice and pulses and the two bananas were to be offered to Aadimata.

Further, shraddhavans took the darshan of Chandikakul on the main stage and that of Aadimata Shatakshi Shakambhari and Aadimata Anjana which were adjacent to it. Shatakshi Shakambhari was decorated with fruits and vegetables in different ways on each of the seven days of the utsav. The heart of each shraddhavan was filled with love for Aadimata Shatakshi Shakambhari who is the ceaseless supplier of food.While going towards the main stage for and while exiting after the darshan, shraddhavans walked beneath the ‘zaal’(sacred cloth). This ‘zaal’ consisted of the auspicious symbols the importance of which, Parampujya Bapu had explained in a few of his discourses. The ‘zaal’ gave away a feeling of a safe refuge of the mother Mothi Aai for each shraddhavan.

This Tirthajala was brought from the rivers of Tapi, Indrayani and Panjara. This Guhyasooktam is ‘The Healing Code’ that provides the power to cure any disease of the mind and body. Shraddhavans completed a minimum of 3 Parikramas and went near the Pushkarni Tirth kund and offered the Tirthajala in it while looking at Ushadevi and Trivikram.
