Vastu for Entrance (Main Door)

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Vastu plays a great role for home entrance as main door is the main opening to your house from where energies (positive or negative) enter and exit. In case entrance door is located in a favorable direction, then the house will bloom and inmates will enjoy love, prosperity and happiness. On the other hand, if some havoc is occuring along with unreasonable conflicts and mysterious illnesses, then there is no denying the fact that negative energies are entering in a home. In most of the cases bad location of entrance door is responsible for this.

In one of our articles we have already explained how the auspicious and inauspicious directions for the main entrance in a house cast good vs. ill effects upon the people dwelling inside the home. Visit our past article to know more.

Before starting on entrance vastu, you must be aware of the importance that the Nine Key Planets (NavGrah) play in the foundation of a house. You would be surprised to learn that each of these planets rules a certain part or corner of the house. Their blessings or curse could be invoked by honoring the places they reside in. Click here to know about what are these nine key planets and their locations.

In this article we shall elaborate upon the qualities that must be inculcated in while constructing the main door of your house. Furthermore we will share some great tips which must be kept in mind while purchasing any already-built house.

Let’s Talk Vastu Entrance Directions:

 

As a thumb rule northeast is termed the best direction for main door; southeast direction comes close to second most favorable direction. However one must avoid at all costs the placement of the door in the corners of the walls. As you can see in the picture above, we have marked the walls (all directions), how you can avoid the corners and build the entrance door little farther from them.

Main door of a house is the prime attraction point. That is why many people take great pains to consult home designers and plan out the best looking grand entrance. Why they do take so much efforts? Because the grander, the more beautiful and the more auspiciously located the door is, the more prosperity, good fortune and harmony the house and its inhabitants enjoy.

Characteristics of the Main Entrance Door

 

  • Bigger than others. The main door is devoted as the mouth of the “Vastu Purusha” and so it must be kept bigger than all the other doors of the house.
  • Height must kept at least double its width. Keep it grand and elegant, and simply beautiful.
  • There should be no screeching or squeaking sound coming out while opening or closing the door. If it happens quickly oil the hinges yourself or else call the mechanic to replace the door. Any disturbing sounds thus produced create ripples of disharmony inside the house and thus discord within the family.
  • Do not forget to build a threshold outside the door. Threshold symbolically guards prosperity as it avoids wealth loss
  • Employ the use of Toran in entrance door. Toran eliminates negative energy and attracts wealth towards the house
  • Create a beautiful nameplate on the house entrance door as it bounds the territory and gives it a good look. A solid made, attractive nameplate attracts prosperity and happiness
  • In Hinduism there is a great significance of drawing the pictures or statues of “Ganesha”, “Lakshmi” or “Kuber”. One can also draw auspicious Hindu symbols like “Om” or the “Swastika” or any symbol of devotion and faith as oper your religion

Entrance/Main Door Energy

 

Energy in a house must always be freely flowing. It shouldn’t stay stuck at a place or at any corner in a house. You must have seen how the atmosphere and energy feels ominous and disturbing inside a house where abusive relationships thrive. On the other hand the energy feels like a soothing balm inside that of a peaceful family house.

Therefore always make sure that energy around the entrance door must be freely flowing to and fro.

vastu-tips-for-main-door-todayastrology

Here are the few key pointers as to know how can one help in free flowing of positive energy.

  • Circular, slanting and sliding opening entrance doors are strictly ‘No’. Also self closing doors are pretty bad choice for main entrance of a house. Same goes with the windows; make sure that you don’t have arched doors and windows in your house. Either they be square or rectangular
  • There should not be any kind of obstructions in front of the main door. For example, staircase, huge tree, electric pole, rail tracks etc
  • Your entrance door must not be facing any temple or other religious site or cemetary.
  • Keep your entrance devoid of shadow. Make sure that the entrance is not getting darkened by shadows coming from big buildings, tress or any other structure etc
  • There should not be a wall in front of the main door. The entrance door must not be facing the main door of someone else’s house. In such a case, you could be either the receptor of residual negative energy of other house or the one who is loosing out on positive energy that is leaking away towards other’s house

 

If conditions are such as the entrance in your ready-made house is in unfavourable location, then you may mitigate the bad effects by using Feng Shui. More on Feng Shui on further articles…

Yantra: What are the Benefits and Uses

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Yantra is a Sanskrit word that is composed from two words:yam” – meaning to control andtrameaning an instrument or device. Astrological Yantras are cosmic devices that demonstrate sacred geometry, which when energized emit cosmic energies. Yantras are sacred mediums that reveal abstract universal truths, they when energized keeping intent in mind, help you manifest its truth in ethereal as well as physical plane of existence.

Let’s simplify these complex geometric figures and mystic archetypal designs, and understand the symbolism hidden in them.

sri-yantra-todayastrology

Symbols Used in Yantra

There can be seen various shapes and patterns that are drawn in Yantra, namely squares, circles, triangles and floral patterns. Together these create some complex geometric figures. Let’s understand the significance and role of each figure:

  1. A dot (bindu) signifies the infinite or the cosmos. It is the starting and the end point of the creation.
  2. A swastika stands for good luck, positivity, prosperity and spiritual victory.
  3. The lotus flower represents chakras, with its each petal displaying the vritti (psychic quality) of that particular chakra.
  4. The shatkona (star of David) comprises two triangles:
  • Upward triangle represents masculinity (Shiva), extroversion and action.
  • Downward triangle represents Shakti (mother Goddess), introversion, meditativeness and passive power.

5. Bija mantras that correspond to each chakra.

 mantra-tantra-yantra-todayastrology

Yantra Mantra (Every Yantra Has a Mantra)

Every Yantra is associated with a particular mantra. That mantra is integral part of Yantra as it infuses life into that geometric figure. If Yantra is some form of deity then mantra is the mind consciousness. A Yantra cannot be energized if you don’t know the mantra associated with it.

Lifespan of Yantra

There is an interesting concept of Yantra’s lifespan among people. While some believe that a Yantra just like a jiva lives on till you keep using it, there are others who believe that a Yantra after it is energized can never die. While there is some truth on both of the arguments, there is no denying the fact and the truth that a Yantra may last for your life time.

Let’s say, you face a compelling need in life for which you purchase a Yantra. You energize the sacred cosmic device with intent or a specific purpose in mind. In this case, the Yantra may withdraw its energy after the aforementioned intent is manifested or the purpose is attained.

Types of Yantras and their Benefits

A Yantra acts as a protective shield against darkness and all kinds of negativities. There are different types of Yantras which help in attaining material prosperity, power, success, love, happiness, peace and welfare, wish fulfillment and good health. As per the desire these Yantras are categorized accordingly. For example wealth Yantra, Yantra for good health, Yantra for education and learning, Yantra for success in business, Yantra for protection against evil and black magic, and Yantra for spiritual advancement.

Yantras For Wealth
Shree Yantra This Yantra embodies highly powerful divine energies that destroy all types of negative vibrations. It attracts the higher divine vibrations of abundance, wealth and positivity. Shree Yantra fulfills all desires of the person and also elevates his spiritual consciousness.
Lakshmi Yantra Lakshmi Yantra attracts a positive and constant inflow of money and richness. It eliminates the poverty and removes debts
Kuber Yantra Useful for those persons handling business or leading shops, this Yantra attracts lucrative opportunities, and brings luck and wealth through business, property and other assets.
Shri Bhairava Yantra Yet another powerful Yantra that attracts wealth and prosperity. This Yantra also protects your wealth from theft, loss, evil eye and other negative circumstances.
Yantras For Health
Mahamrithyunjay Yantra This Yantra eliminates any signs of diseases, and blesses the worshipper with longevity. It keeps the person healthy.
Yantra For Education & Learning
Saraswati Yantra Embodying the divine energies of Goddess of learning, Saraswati, this Yantra helps students hone their skills and learning. It increases their concentration, memory power and focus.
Hayagriva Yantra This Yantra is useful when one wants to achieve higher learning, presumably in abroad or higher institutions. This Yantra helps students to study with strong focus and higher concentration, as a result perform extraordinarily well and secure high percentages.
Yantra For Protection Against Black Magic And Evil Spells
Sudarshan Yantra Just like the famous Sudarshan Chakra of Lord Vishnunarayana, this powerful Yantra destroys all evil forces and attracts positive force into one’s life
Prathyangira Yantra This Yantra eliminates all the evil effects that had been caused due to black magic, sorcery, jealousy and evil eye. It also destroys enemies who bear ill-will towards you.

In addition to the above discussed Yantras, there are many more Yantras. An interesting category is Planetary Yantras like Navagraha Yantra, Surya Yantra, Moon Yantra, Rahu Yantra, Kethu Yantra, Mars Yantra, Jupiter Yantra, Mercury Yantra, Venus Yantra and Saturn Yantra. These Yantras have vibrations corresponding to their planets. These Vedic Yantras are used to solve any affliction caused by any “grha dosha” as it serves as a remedy. One can also use any of these Yantras to increase the favorable influences of the beneficial planet.

Is Energizing a Yantra Important?

Just like reciting a mantra for a specific period of time in order to appease the deity is important similarly energizing a Yantra in order to achieve the desired affect is important. Energized Yantras remains active and alive till the intention has been manifested energetically and physically, after which it may withdraw its energy and go inert. Yantra which is not energized using mantras or vedic rituals serve only as an interesting eyepiece that cast no real effect in life.

Yantras are powerful cosmic devices that are specially designed so that one can harness the strong energies of universe and do well in life. One may choose to not energize these figures and keep it merely as showpiece. It depends upon only your choice.

Vashikaran Yantra: Can One harm others by using Yantra?

 vashikaran-yantra-todayastrology

Ah, an interesting question! Yes. Like Yantras are used to attract good in life, they can be used to beget evil or negativity to someone. Universe is composed of energy, and good and bad, both are equal constituents of energy. One must not forget though that evil begets evil, and according to the Universe Law of Karma, bad doing always backfires and brings bad to the doer. There is no escaping from the Karma.

यदि शास्त्रों की मानें तो उनमे लिखा है कि इस दिन लक्ष्मी हमारे घर में प्रवेश करती है, लक्ष्मी की प्रसन्नता हेतु विभिन्न उपायों एवं कृत्यों के बारे में भी शास्त्रों में बताया गया है. कभी-कभी कुछ काम ऐसे भी हैं जिन्हें लक्ष्मी जी को प्रसन्न रखने के लिए नहीं करना चाहिए. आइये हम आपको बताते हैं कुछ इसी प्रकार की उपयोगी जानकारी.

दीपावली का यदि संधि विच्छेद करे तो दीप + आवाली दीप का अर्थ दीपक से होता है . और आवली का अर्थ पंक्ति से. दिवाली के दिन हम अपने घरो में दीपकों की पंक्ति से सजाते है. इसलिए इसे दीपावली कहा जाता है .

Dhanteras Pujan Vidhi (धनतेरस पर कैसे करे भगवान् कुबेर की पूजा )

धनतेरस जिसे हम धन त्रयोदसी भी कहते है. आज के दिन कुबरे भगवान् का पूजन करना चाहिए. भगवान् कुबेर की स्थापना करे, फूल , फल, धूप, मिष्ठान आदि सामग्री लेकर किसी ब्राहमण द्वारा पूजन करे . भगवान् कुबेर की  प्राथना करे क्योकि भगवान्  कुबेर की पूजा से ही धन की प्राप्ति होती है,

Dhanteras/धनतेरस  क्या न करे:

धनतेरस के दिन हमें कोई सुवस्तु अपने घर लानी चाहिए. परन्तु इस बात का विशेष ध्यान रखना चाहिए की वस्तु लोहे की न हो . वैसे तो कहा जाता है कि स्टील भी लोहा सामान होता है. परन्तु धन के आभाव में हम यदि चावल भी खरीद कर भगवान् कुबेर पर अर्पित करते है तो वह भी भगवान् स्वीकार कर लेते है. उसके उपरान्त नरक चतुर्दशी आती है.

Choti Diwali/नरक चतुर्दशी पर क्या करे क्या न करे:

इस दिन पूजा करने से नरक गमन नहीं करना पड़ता इसलिए आवश्यक है कि दिवाली से ठीक पहले मिलने वाले इस अवसर का सही लाभ उठाया जाये. इस दिन 5 घी के दीपक बनाकर पूजा करनी चाहिए.

एक दीपक सबसे पहले उस स्थान पर रखें जहां भगवान की मूर्ति रखी है, दूसरा दीपक तुलसा जी के पास रखें, तीसरा दीपक उस स्थान पर रखें जहां घर के सदस्य जल का उपयोग करते हैं. इसके अतिरिक्त एक दीपक किसी मंदिर में रखने से भगवान की कृपा बनी रहती है तथा एक दीपक घर के दरवाजे पर रख देना उत्तम होता है. इस प्रकार कुल पांच दीपक जलाने तथा उन्हें विधिवत रखने से पूजा अर्चना का लाभ प्राप्त हो सकता है.

  • देर से न उठें: भारतीय पुरातन शास्त्रों के अनुसार दीपावली पर ब्रह्म मुहूर्त में उठना शुभ माना जाता है. सूर्योदय से पहले उठकर नित्य क्रिया से निवृत होकर योग अथवा पूजा करना दीवाली पर स्वास्थ्य एवं वैभव में वृद्धि करता है.
  • वाद-विवाद न करें: इस दिन लक्ष्मी के गृह प्रवेश के लिए आपको घर में शांति एवं सौहार्द का माहौल भी बनाना होगा. यदि गृहक्लेश है तो लक्ष्मी उस स्थान पर प्रवेश नहीं करेगी. इसलिए यह आवश्यक है कि आप खुश रहें एवं विपरीत परिस्थिति में संयम बनाये रखें.
  • नशा न करें: शास्त्रों में इस दिन नशा करना वर्जित माना गया है. ऐसा माना जाता है कि इस दिन नशा करने वाले दरिद्र हो जाते हैं अथवा उन्हें गरीबी का सामना करना पड़ सकता है. कहा जाता है कि इससे पवित्रता नष्ट होने के कारण लक्ष्मी जी प्रवेश नहीं करती.
  • आदर-सत्कार दें: यदि आप चाहते हैं कि इस दिन लक्ष्मी आपके घर आये तो इसके लिए आपको घर का माहौल उपयुक्त बनाना होगा. घर पर अपने से बड़ों तथा छोटों को आदर दें, उनका सम्मान करें जिससे प्रसन्न होकर लक्ष्मी आप पर कृपा कर सकती हैं.
