Nabakalebara Vidhi : Selection of Mahadaru 

As mentioned in the previous post of Nabakalebara , holy neem trees which show those specific signs is selected as the Mahadaru for the carving of the Deities. At first, Shri Sudarshan Mahadaru is selected for the Nabakalebara(changing of old bodies and acquiring new wooden bodies) process of the deities. 

As the Mahadaru(the holy neem tree) which shows the maximum desired signs as mentioned in the previous chapter is selected, then the Lenka servitor place the chakranarayan in front of the tree and the bhramins prepares for the ritualistic process to goes on there and Daita (sabar sevak) and Patimohapatra started staying near the selected holy neem tree.

Then is a long list of details which is strictly followed by the Vedic Bhramins and according to that the Yagyan Mandap(pedestal for fire sacrifice ) is made on the Yagyan shala, which has a central mandap and 4 other yagyan mandap on 4 sides of the central mandap.Towards the Agni Kona (a particular place according to vastu shastra) of the Yagyan shala there an Adhibasa mandap is constructed along with the holy mandap for the snan of the deities and Ankoraropan(planting of seeds, whose germination will start the fire sacrifice) mandap.
