The joy we all get after the possession of our new property is unparallel. This phase marks a new beginning in life and it becomes a personal duty to make this new beginning an auspicious one. Vastu Shastra is the age-old concept in India to model home as per the concept and positioning of Nakshatras. It has been followed for thousands of years and till date, we Indians have a lot of faith in it.
Let’s summarize some key pointers for Vastu Shastra when moving into your new home:
Timing of the Muhurat
The precise timing when you formally step-in your new property is very important. The position of your home based on the cosmic position of sun, moon and other planets in the solar system is the key. The same is decided as per the Hindu Panchang, which predict the exact Muhurat of the Griha Pravesh (entering a home for the first time).
Performing Ritualistic Hawan
Anyone living in India or aware of the culture knows well that the start of important things is marked by a Hawan or the Fire ceremony. As per the Vedas, Hawan is a votive ritual, and mainly performed because of the commitment of the individual/family/group to do so when the time arrives.
At the time of Griha Pravesh, the decoration of the home should be done to please our deities. The blessings of Lord Ganesh for peace & prosperity and Goddess Laxmi for wealth are needed. Accordingly, the home must be decorated with items needed during the ceremony.
Also, pay heed to the following Vastu tips that are equally important to follow:
- Do not perform Griha Pravesh ceremony till the construction is complete. This includes completion of the roof and installation of the door, window, and gate.
- The ceremony must be performed without the placement of furniture or other household items. It should be vacant in order to derive maximum benefit from the ceremony.
- Sprinkle holy waters from the Ganges, Harmandir Sahib or from an equally holy place.
- Breaking coconut is the first thing to perform even before stepping inside the home.
- Idols of the deities should always face to the east, the point in the horizon where the sun rises.
- Ensure that the home is occupied for the next three days after the Griha Pravesh. Never leave it empty.
- Delay or postpone the Griha Pravesh ceremony if going through the mourning period of a deceased member in the family.
- Postpone Griha Pravesh if there is a pregnant woman in the family.
