All Deeparathans and recitations of Vedic and also Devara Thirumpis will be for the Lord.

The lovers, after seeing the Lord sitting on the swan-pile, screened and removed the decorations. A small portion of the prepared patsanas, curries, and rice grains placed on top of the lord are placed on a wide plate.
