Main Door – Prime importance in Vastu ShastraAccording to the vastu, Main door or entrance of home, office or plot has been accorded prime importance as it lets in or keeps out the vital life-giving force that promotes health, wealth and good luck.
Urja (energy) enters in the house through doors and windows. However, the front door of your house is where the major part of energy enters and therefore this door plays an important role in determining the flow of vibrations experienced by the household. The main door is of great significance in vastu shastra as the entrance is considered to be the opening of a home (apartment or villa). Front door is a door of opportunities, hence it should be attractive, inviting and well organized. Garage door or back door are not considered as a main door.
It is auspicious to have main entrance in the positive block according to vastu grid layout. Wherever the entrance of any home or building is in the positive location, the residents enjoy better health, increasing prosperity, and harmonious relations with others; but wherever houses are facing in negative zones , vastu correction / remedies are necessary to avoid negative impact. Correction of door in negative zone can be rectified with simple vastu corrections under the guidance of experienced vastu expert. Home with best (good) entrance is always in demand by home buyers.
