    This is a great site and I would love to see more info on various dieties such as….how to pray to Shan Dev at home….and can you fast on Saturdays for the rest of your life and is there any limitations as to how many days one could fast and then needs to get a preist and do puja ???? I am just starting to vget an understanding of our hindu cultre and religion and I always seem to be getting contradictory info which causes a lot of confusion …. so it would be greatly appreciated if basic info is placed on site for devotees like myself who can read and follow rituals and not worry about doing prayers with differing info…..Thank you and hope this site will become more informative as it grows
    Please let me know as to how I can help and I will try my best if at all possible
