Mars (Mangal) - Puja and Havan

“Dharanee garbha sambhootam vidyut kaanti samaprabham kumaram shakti hastam tam mangalam pranamamyaham”

The idol of the Mars should be made using red sandal. Mars should be perceived adorning rosary of red color and red clothes, having four hands bedecked with sword, axe and mace (gada). One hand is in blessing posture, riding on a quadruped lamb.

Mars (Mangal) should be worshipped with the flowers and clothes of the colors of the idol and with fragrance, sticks, deepa, giving oblations, Dhupa, Guggul, etc. The metal of the idol of the planet and the food dear to him as signified by the planet are donated in charity with full devoutness for the alleviation of the affliction.

Maharishi Parashara said that the Mantra of Mars should be recited ten thousand times. 

The type of wood to be used for Havan of Mars is Khaira. The Havana Samagri duly mixed with honey, ghee, curd or milk is offered as oblations into the sacred fire and amidst chanting of the Mantras for 108 or 28 times, the Havana should be performed.

After that Brahmins should be fed. Havishya (khichri) is a must for remedy of Mars. After the worship Dakshina should be given as per shraddha of yajmana (person performing the Havan) and satisfaction of Brahmins.
