Prayer or Pooja room – Vastu blessing

Prayer or Pooja room – Vastu blessing
One of the important area in any home is a zone of tranquility, a prayer or meditation area. According to vastu, North east corner zone is best suitable for the prayer room or home temple. This is a place that brings us closer to a our Creator. It can be considered lifting one’s mind and heart to God. Here we can talk to God about the everyday things of human life, about our joys and sorrows, our needs and wants, our disappointments and pleasures. Prayer and how an individual prays is often shaped by religious beliefs. But one does not have to belong to a specific religion to pray. Prayer offers us an opportunity to commune with our Creator, draw on the revitalizing power of the Word of God, and to contemplate and more deeply appreciate our lives.
Tranquility zone is a a means of helping people attain inner peace in this crowded and busy world. It works by creating an atmosphere in which mind, body and spirit are soothed and made tranquil.
Best time for prayer can be at every early morning or evening , a thank you for a good day, for warmth of the sun, for love of friends who support and assist us even on our bad or difficult days.
This is a space where human-made problems are left behind like a wet umbrella at the door.
If you do not have the space to allocate an entire room for pooja, you can set up a small temple on the east wall of North-east zone of the house.
Important things about prayer room:-

1. Deity or image of god should positioned in such a way that you face east while praying the god. West is the second best location.
2. Place water in the copper pot at north east direction of the prayer zone. Change this water daily.
3. Light or diya can be placed in the south east corner.
4. Photographs (pictures) of the dead/ancestors should not be kept in the prayer room.
5. Keep this room neat, clean and clutter free.
6. This room should be strictly used for prayer and meditation.
7. Due to shortage of space, some house have small wall temple kept in bed room or kitchen. Small curtain should be placed in front of it when not in use.
8. Temple should not share the wall of toilet of the house.
9. It is auspicious to keep a panchdhatu shri yantra duly blessed in the temple
10. Being a cool zone, place a marble kalash containg water, silver swastika & half round pearl
11.A wooden pyramid wish box containg yantra  becomes more powerful when kept in the temple or at north east
12.Black agate tortoise is a powerful symbol for career or business luck when kept in prayer zone
13. Female member should avoid using prayer room during mentstrual period.

We are trying to construct a home. The main door / garage / pooja room all face east. There is a road leading to our home which curves at a 45 degree angle two houses before ours. Our driveway is the third one on the angular road. Since we are seeing from our entry way, is there an issue. Thats the only plot which fits our home.

Vastuplus said...

I request you to post a map to have a better idea on the issue. Google map will also do. Pl mail us on info@vastuplus.com

Hi,
Our pooja room is facing east but is on a back to back wall of a toilet. The entrance of the toilet is behind the pooja room. Can you please suggest a remedy for this?

Thanks,
Shanthi

Vastuplus said...

Hello,
Please note that the only remedy is to put a thin wall not attaching the toilet wall. It should be fixed on side wall or ceiling. So there will be gap between wall of temple and toilet.

Hello,

Direction of main door has no connection with your date of birth. There are total 9 zone at west side starting from north west corner to south west. You need to specify in which zone your direction is located.

Hello,
Our house is a rented one. The house is facing towards east. We have a apartment behind our house which have a South-West (Nairuthi) Veedi shoola. We are able to see the road from our back side balcony. Is this veedi shoola effects our house also ? Our owners partitioned the back side balcony with a 4-inch small wall. Does this shoola effect us ? Please tell me ?

Vastuplus said...

Hello, Is your house it at ground level? or at upper floor?

Ramarao Pendela said...

Dear Sir,

I have seen your blog in Google search. I am planning to purchase house back side of venkateswara swamy temple. The house is 150 meters away to the temple. Is it good to purchase house back side of the temple? if yes how much distance we need to see. Please let me know the your valuable information.

Thanks & Regards
Ramarao P

Vastuplus said...

Hello Mr. Rama Rao,

The temple should be away with a distance of double the length of your house.
The shadow of the flag of temple should not fall on your house.
The gate of your house should not face exactly back of idol kept in temple.

Swapna said...

Hello Sir,
Looking at your promote responses to other queries, I guess my query might be vague. So, I m reposting my query.

Our plot is west facing and we planned to build a north facing house in the first floor.

1.Can we have a puja room in the NE corner of the house with the door opening in the south. Please suggest.
2. We have the outer staircase to first floor in NW corner.We have toilet under stairs. Is this appropriate? If not, please suggest remedy.

We are in the phase of construction. Your suggestions would be valuable.

Regards,
Swapna

Vastuplus said...

Hello Swapna,

Poojaroom at north is an excellent placement. But avoid door from south for pooja room.
Toilet under the staircase is not an ideal arrangement. Keep copper sheet between toilet and staricase area with nine copper pyramid for energy balacning.

Ranjit said...

Dear Sir,

We are planning to buy a plot East Facing, 3-feet (out of 24 feet) of the frontage is having visibility to road in the South-East of Eastern side.

1) should this be considered as veedhi shoola/T-junction?
2) should we avoid or are there any workarounds to avoid any effect ?

Vastuplus said...

Dear Mr. Ranjit,

Yes it is a veedhishoola if road ends at south east corner. It will be T junction if road diverts from south east. Place nine wooden pyramid on border of your plot facing the T juction
