How should one conduct Griha Pravesh Puja?

The time needed: 1 hour

Griha Pravesh is a conventional Puja in the Hindu system.

This puja is offered to lord shiva, lord Vishnu, Ganesh, and Vastu Debota, sometimes to Devi Chandi (another form of debi Durga). The puja is conducted by placing a copper Kalash filled with water, coin, and nine kinds of cereals. A coconut is placed on top of Kalash with five mango leaves in its bottom. The Kalash is also decorated with a swastika sign. People also pay tribute to the deity of all directions and five elements of Panchabhoot (fire, water, earth, air, and space).

Why puja is conducted?

Just before living in a newly built house, or a flat people observe Griha Pravesh or Vastu puja on an auspicious day consulting Vedic calenders. This puja helps people to attain peace, prosperity, and happiness. People believe that Vastu Santi puja or griha pravesh makes home free from bad influence caused by evil energies. Griha puja means to remove evil effects which arise due to faults in constructing the building. It is a scientific combination between nature and human beings. A good and well-set-up building depends on such a good combination. So people should follow the Vastu rule before construction. After completion of the house, people pray to Lord and ask for their blessing.
