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 Meru Shriparni shri yantra duly blessed in the temple. It is believed that goddess lakshmiji is always present in shriparni wood.
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.

Vastuplus said...

Hello Deepak,
Pooja room can be placed at north east zone but covered since you are using it as a bed room

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

Shanthi said...

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.

Gourav Srivastava said...

Karthik Parasa said...

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

Gopala Krishna A said...

Hi,
I am looking to take apartment in a building which is facing to main road on north side. Width of the apartment is same as road width.
1. Can I take a apartment in this building.
2. Every floor has two apartments. one beside the road and other back of first apartment. Do the apparent at back also have veedi doshas.

Vastuplus said...

Hello, Vedhishoola means road ending to your premises. If you have a apartment in front with no direct veedhishoola, then you need not to worry on the issue.

Geeta Chawla said...

hello sir, can u please tell me the vaastu tips for desinging a ved pathshala? it's urgent

Swapna said...

Hello Sir,

Thanks for your responses. I shall try to incorporate your suggestions.

Swapna

Swapna said...

Hello Sir,
We have a balcony on the west side of the house on first floor.
Can we have a storage room for food grains in this balcony at the south west corner, door facing north?
Regards,
Swapna

Vastuplus said...

Food grain can be kept in north west corner of the house. Hope that balcony falls in north west zone.

Left side baba nd right side vinayaka ideals are there for rama ideal.

Vastuplus said...

Hello,
The shadow of temple flag should not fall on your between 9 am to 3 pm in any season.

MrChakri2906 said...

Thank you sir,
I hv noted that the shadow of temple flag is not falling on my place after 9am. Can pls give me some tips to avoid vastu problem for that place.

Vastuplus said...

Since shadow is not falling on the plot, you need not to worry. Make sure that all internal and external placement is as per vastu rules

Shaliza Joshi said...

dear sir we have just shifted to a new house,due to limited space the temple which i have too place in my house is just out side my both bed rooms facing the both bed rooms doors, and the lord is facing east and while prying we have to face west is it of any problem if yes can you please suggest some methods to improve vastu or reduce any ill effects thanks

Vastuplus said...

Hello Shaliza,

Please inform in which corner your temple is placed? Ideal location is north east.

hritu shree said...

How many temples we can keep in our house.suppose currently we have small metal temple and in future we want some bigger one wood or marble temple then what is the option available for me.can i keep both at a time in my house

Vastuplus said...

We suggest to use only one temple in the house made of wood or marble. Additional temple should be immersed in water. Metal is not an ideal material for temple.

manu said...

Dear Sir, We are making a puja room in north east corner with temple placed on east side of the wall. But behind the wall there is a bathroom so will it be ok if we create a false wall between existing wall and puja room. Also, will it be ok if create wooden cabinet next to puja place so as to hide the false wall

_________________actual wall
false wall| Cabinets |
-----------________________|

Vastuplus said...

Hello,

Yes, make sure that false wall is attached to side wall and not the back wall having bathroom. You can make wooden cabinet to hide false ceiling. No issue

manu said...

Dear Sir,

Thank you for you reply.
I have one more question regarding the same. Will it be ok if instead of false wall we create a sink for handwash. If yes, then on which wall it will be better (north or east)

bathroom (E)
|_________|______________|
(N)| sink
|_________
|puja room|

Vastuplus said...

Avoid sink here

Chidambaram Active said...

Sir, I am proposing to convert a store room (plan below) adjacent to my Bed room and behind my pooja room as Bath room. Please suggest me remedies to do so - just as a bath room or as a bath room with attached toilet. Can construction of a false wall be done? I intend to place the deities in the wall in between the proposed bath and pooja room or can a wooden temple or shelf be used for the dieties in the pooja room? please suggest me the remedies and the conditions to do so. Thanks.

Vastuplus said...

Hello,
Please note that temple can not be on wall shared by toilet. You can make a false wall not touching the toilet wall. It can be placed on shelves but that shleves should no touch the toilet wall.

Rajesh Mishra said...

I am planning to buy https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/11069-Meadowvale-Cir-80130/home/35082508. This home faces north but its corner of T-junction. Is it good as per Vastu? Please advice.

Vastuplus said...

Link shows that it is a corner of junction. There is not T junction projected towards the house. If there is a road on north and east then this is good plot to buy subject to all internal vastu arrangements.

Rajesh Mishra said...

Thank you for so much valuable suggestion. I was also looking one more home which is north facing, corner of T-junction, it has road on its north and west. The plot area is quadrilateral. Can you please suggest on this too. Thanks for your help on this.

Vastuplus said...

Mr. Rajesh

Can you please give your suggestion on this? I would appreciate your help on this.

Vastuplus said...

https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/10685-Cedarcrest-Cir-80130/home/35080004 house has a road hitting at south east corner (not good)
https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/2765-Middlebury-Dr-80126/home/35262896- south facing house should be bought only if internal placements are as per vastu
https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/2785-Middlebury-Dr-80126/home/35262902- south facing house should be bought only if internal placements are as per vastu

https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/8884-Wagner-Ct-80126/home/35172753- NW facing- it has cross magnetic axis (Not recommended)

Rajesh Mishra said...

Thanks Sir for you suggestion. I will see if 2 & 3rd work out then.

Vastuplus said...

Please note that south facing should have gate in positive direction also internal arrangement must be as per vastu. Be careful. or try something better with road at east and north without any T junction

Sachin Goyal said...

hi is some one there to help me about the puja room

Sachin Goyal said...

we r construction our house and as per the map our puja room is at NE direction and extended towards balcony.
Please suggest is that correct as per the vastu

Rajesh Mishra said...

Thanks sir for your suggestion. I didn't understand what do you mean by south facing home should have gate in positive direction.

Vastuplus said...

Hello Sachin
Extended north east corner is auspicious and again a pooja room (Tranquility zone) excellent. Good arrangement

Vastuplus said...

Hello Mr. Rajesh

As per vastu , south zone is divided in to nine zone. Some of them are positive and some are most dangerous. So it should be check with magnetic compass by expert to have it in the positive zone suggested in vastu zone grid

Rajesh Mishra said...

Thank you for your response sir. I appreciate your help me on going through this. I got late on offer and homes are already in contract now.

Rajesh Mishra said...

I saw one home today and liked that. Can you suggest if it looks from Vaastu side.

Address: link to home https://www.redfin.com/CO/Highlands-Ranch/3311-Ashworth-Ave-80126/home/35274965

Its north face and near Lshape. It has school boundary on back of home.

Vastuplus said...

Link does not shows a floor plan. L shape is not recommended but if it has a extention at north east (up to 10% of the house) then it is a good vastu

nitish said...

Hi,
the plot in which my apartment is a passage property and the passage is in the north of the north west corner of the plot. as info gathered by me it is affected by the vidhi schoola. is it correct??? will a copper flat strip help to nullify it?? plz help me how to go about with things.

Vastuplus said...

Hello,
If there is a canel in between, t junction will not affect

Vastuplus said...

Hello,

Mr. Nitish

We need a sketch with marking to give you a reply to your query

Vandana said...

A small Mandir in my house is placed in the living room. The back of the Mandir is placed on a North side wall, so while doing prayer we are facing the north direction. But idols of God faces the south direction. Is this considered appropriate according to Vaastu. If not then what is the remedy because that's seems to be the only proper place in a small apartment. Thanks.

Vastuplus said...

Hello,

There is no remedy for temple placement. You need to place either on east or west wall at north east or north west zone.

Rajesh Mishra said...

Please ignore earlier home, this home is already gone.

I looked into another home. This home is north-west facing. Can you give your suggestion on this regarding Vaastu.

Vastuplus said...

Reply to Mr. Rajesh Mishtra,
Door facing the north west is ok but there are so many vastu arrangement like door location, bed rooms, kitchen location, wash rooms, level of house, windows, shape of the house is also equally deciding factor for new home
