Grah Pravesh

The house we live in is not an object made of brick and mortar but an entity with the “grih purush” or the spirit of the house dwelling in it. A house becomes a home when the residents of the house quell the spirits, purify the environment by reverberation of the mantras and the smoke emanating from the hawan. All the planetary deities are also pacified by puja The owner of the house and his family all sit together on an auspicious day and perform the devata pooja. Grah shanti pooja and the hawan to make the house habitable. This ritual is believed to ward off any bad spirits, negative energy that may be present in the house and bring peace, prosperity and good health for the inhabitants Thus, the “grih pravesh” is an important ritual that one should perform before one enters a new home. This ritual is an extension of “vaastu shashtra”, a science that tells us the best way to build a house and the optimizes the use of spaces that are used as residences, offices or factories. Before entering a new house we do Vaastu Puja, kalash puja and dwar puja, and then only we shift to the new house.
