Nirai Kudam is a
collection of ritual things that must be put on the entrance of a ceremonial
dwelling. This entire set is made of brass. Every object serves a purpose and
is meticulously arranged following its ceremonial function. A banana leaf is
put first, followed by paddy or raw rice. The Ashtalakshmi Kalash is put in the
center, with the pitcher's mouth covered in mango leaves and a coconut atop.
Two Kuthu Vilakkus with a peacock design are put and lighted on either side of
the Kalash. The tray with the Kumkum, Vibhooti, and Prasadam containers is put
in front of the entire arrangement.
The incense stand is
filled with lighted incense sticks. Finally, the Gulab dan Rose water dispenser
is installed. Some bananas are placed on a betel leaf in the front to complete
the arrangement. This arrangement is thought to invite the blessings
of Goddess Lakshmi and provide wealth to a home.
