Vastu for pooja room| Vastu & Astrology expert Dr. Hemant Venus | Vastu tips for ideal place of mandir in home
Placement of a Temple or Mandir in your home plays a very significant role according to Vastu in the happiness and prosperity of your family. The direction and facing of a Mandir in home or the pooja room according to Vastu Shastra can bring you money and wealth in your life and if done wrongly it can also have negative effects. Let’s first understand the actual meaning of mandir(temple). The word Mandir means-inside our “Mann” (or heart) or we can say that it is “The door to mind”. And when we talk about a mandir the first thing that comes to our mind is the statues or idols(murti) and pictures of a deity that we worship. Vastu for pooja room plays a significant role in maintaining positivity in house.
Essentially there are two important aspects that you need to consider while placing and worshipping a deity in your homes according to the pooja room Vastu. First, which God or Goddess’ picture or statue will be placed in that pooja room or mandir and the second, is direction of the mandir. Both these things have a combined effect which together creates impact on your subconscious mind.
According to Hindu dharma every God and Goddess connects in their own symbolic way with us and create a different impact on our life. For example, when we talk about Lord Shri Ram, we talk about a man of principles. So, a person who worships Lord Shri Ram will always be conscious of his principles. When we talk about Shri Krishan ji, we talk about his worldly wisdom, so a person who worships him will seek wisdom in his life. Similarly, Lord Ganesh ji, for example is known for his intelligence so if you are seeking intellect and wisdom, you must worship him. Therefore, subconsciously you connect with different Gods and Goddesses and that creates massive impact in your life.
Coming back to the main topic, According to pooja room vastu, the Ideal direction for a mandir at your home would be in the North East wherein you should be facing East while doing the pooja in your mandir. Now if it is not possible to place the mandir in North East you should always take care to avoid these four directions- South-South West, East South East, South and West North West other than these all-other directions are acceptable.
Now according to the direction for mandir, the attributes of that particular direction start becoming visible in you. From the perspective of Vaastu, a temple should not be placed in South or South-South West direction of your house because this is a direction from where energies flow out and if you place a God there then their energies will also start getting drained out. For example, if your mandir is in South-South West and Lord Ganesh ji is placed there, then on subconscious level your intelligence will work less. Or if Shiv parivar is placed in that direction in your pooja room, then maybe you might see some fights or problems in the family leading to unhappiness. Similarly in every direction the impact of the temple and the deity is visible. So try to avoid the placement of temple in these four directions South of South West, East of South East, South and West of North West and in all the rest of directions a temple can be placed.
Every God and Goddess has a particular place so if your temple is in that direction then always make sure that at least that God or Goddess should be placed there. North is the direction for Lord Ganesh, North East for Shiv/Shiv Parivar, East for Lord Shri Ram, South East for Laxmi ji etc. Now, if you want to gain wealth and abundance you should worship Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi in either North or South East direction. Since Lord Ganesh is known for his intelligence, he will shower his blessings upon you in the form of intellect and wisdom and it will help you to prosper in your business and eventually money and wealth will automatically come in.
Apart from the direction, try to avoid placing a mandir in bed room, if that is not possible, make sure to put a curtain on the mandir. When you design mandir or pooja room design for your home make sure to use light colors. You can use wooden designs for mandir and all the other aspects like direction and colors can be kept in mind while you look for mandir designs for home. The idols or sculptures that are made of plastic or fiber should also be avoided. Avoid placing the mandir under any staircase, also avoid placing two or more idols or pictures of the same God or Goddess in the same temple. Use a Brass base for Jyoti/ Fire to balance the fire zone.
Although it is said that God is everywhere and in all the directions but sometimes with the help of knowledge of Vastu it creates massive positive impacts on our lives and if neglected some negative impacts can also be seen. Since Vastu is a very vast subject and every tiny changes that you make in your homes affects the surroundings as well as you, so it is always better to consult an expert to take professional guidance.
