On the day of Vratta, consume milk, curd and fruit juice during day time and in the evening pay visit to the temple of Lord Hanuman or Bhairavji. Take sweet halwa (sweet dish) made of Urad pulse or salted Khichari (dish prepared from rice and Urad pulse boiled together).

7. On Saturday, wear an iron ring made from the bottom of a boat or a horse’s bridle in the middle finger.

" नीलांजन समाभासं रवि पुत्रां यमाग्रजं। छाया मार्तण्डसंभूतं तं नामामि शनैश्चरम्॥ "

" Neelanjan Samabhasam Ravi Putram Yamagrajam, Chhaya Martanda Sambhutam Tam Namami Saneshcharam "
