7 Worst Feng Shui Mistakes to Avoid

Reading Time: 4 minutes


Feng shui is a Chinese philosophical system used to harmonize the surroundings. One of the five arts of Chinese Metaphysics, it is closely linked to Taosim. Feng Shui is widely used to orient the buildings and spiritually significant structures. These days this practice has gained momentum and people are employing the Feng Shui objects to beautify and harmonize their homes.

“Chi” or “Energy” is the basis of this now widely practiced system. The importance of positive energy flow has already been depicted and emphasized upon strongly in Vaastu Shastra. As you can see in many of our Vaastu Shastra articles, there is a specific place of each of the five elements – fire, water, earth, ether and air.

As per Feng Shui your surroundings must be vibrant, personalized and lit up with positivity so as to invite great abundance, love, happiness and good health.

However in an effort to attract positive chi, you might commit a teeny meeny mistake that could horribly disturb the harmonious Chi flow and create a serious imbalance of universal energy.

Here, we are going to introduce some of the most common mistakes that people often commit without realizing what went wrong while decorating the interiors.

1.  Feng Shui Waterfall Direction


Disturbing the Water Element- You must have seen those beautiful dragon water-fall miniatures that are placed to promote the water element. It is good to place Water element in your home as that draws wealth-building and abundance-creating Chi. However you can not place this element just anywhere in your home.

There is a common misconception that this element also promotes love energy. Hence some people place the water element (a water fall, painting or photograph depicting water in motion etc) in bedroom. There you commit the biggest mistake. As it could instantly water down the romance in relationship and proves to be disastrous for a married couple.


You must remember that water attracts very powerful Chi and sets the otherwise stale energy into motion.


2. Feng Shui Water Element

Incorporating Wrong Elements- Another serious blunder is placing elements in wrong directions. Before adding any element in any corner of your home, you must consult the flying stars or Vastu chart. For example, Fire element resides in south direction. If you burn candles or place a Feng shui fire element depicting symbol, you just might be adding fuels to the already existing fire element in that particular sector.

Never forget that energy always flows and the over indulgence of any particular element might disrupt the otherwise calm energy in your home.


You can listen in this Vastu video  the importance of elements in their domains.


3. Bad Feng Shui House Location

Dark Hallways and Entrances – Extremely No! – Unless you want to create a really sad and terrifying aura in your home do not ever make implicating dark foyer and hallway entrance to your home. These dark pathways attract only negative and not-so-good energy. All you need is a light, bright, open and positive entrance towards your home.

Read here all about Vastu tips for home entrance.

4. Feng Shui Mirror Facing Door

Wrong Placement of Mirrors- It is said that mirror bounces off the negative energy coming towards us, and that it is a wonderful cure for getting rid of negative Chi. Hence many people place a mirror directly across from the front door because they are only saying good bye to negative vibes.

However they are doing exactly the opposite. This is one of the worst mistakes and thus they are saying good bye to all the positive energy and giving invitation to negative energy to flow into house.

Our astrologer Ramashankar Upadhyay ji explains the importance of mirrors and their right placement in this video




5.  Feng Shui Don’ts for Bedroom

Inauspicious Bed Placement- While some call it good to place your bed directly across from the door, but in fact experts call it a “coffin position”! In case your bedroom is such designed, hang a crystal ball between bed and door. Best solution is to re-adjust the bed placement.

Also the placement of bed in the corner, tucked against a wall is not advisable. While we sleep, there must be a positive energy circulation, so that we wake up feeling positive and rejuvenated and end up feeling depressed and not well rested. Bed in corner position leaves the person sleeping in it often feeling vulnerable in life.

6.  Feng Shui Colors for Living Room

Colors and Elements- It is said in Feng Shui as well as Vaastu that colors correspond to their linked elements. Colors when added to particular areas of your home helps activating the linked elements. However, make sure that in the finality only the real element can enhance the element energy flow. For example, using only the brown hues in your living room instead of adding real wooden furniture might not enhance the wood element.

7.  Feng Shui Rules house

Live like a Minimalistic and you will be fine.

A House Looking like a Feng Shui Store- The key to make your home blooming with beautiful and balanced energy flow is to keep particular Feng Shui item in specified sector of your house. At the same time don’t go all lavish by adding Feng shui interior decorative objects anywhere you deem fit.  You might end up stuffing your home with too much Feng Shui cures and completely disrupting the open energy flow. So, go the minimalistic way! Better is to seek out Feng Shui expert’s advice.


Importance Of Vastu Shastra For Main Entrance/Main Door Of A House

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Vastu Shastra or Indian Architectural Science is an ancient Indian art which aims to bring harmonious and prosperous living on this planet. Vaastu is built upon the fact that everything in this universe is energy, and so, it’s easy to see that every moment we are surrounded and imbued with this energy that can be positive or negative.

Since everything is energy, it is another fact that the building or the house where we live in and even the land on which the building is constructed emits and attracts certain energy. This is the prominent reason why nowadays people prefer first looking for vastu home plans, before they purchase any property or construct one.

The main purpose of Vastu for homes is to eliminate the negative or low energy from the space and to enhance positive or higher energy.


Vastu shastra for home entrance has great significance with regard to the entrance of a house, since the main door is the first place from where energies (positive or negative) enter and exit. If the negative energies are entering in a home, it shall cause havoc by creating illness and not-good conditions. But if positive energies are entering, then it will bring blessings for the home and happiness to its inhabitants.

In this article, you will learn about auspicious directions for the main entrance in a house and effect of these directions upon the people dwelling inside the home. You will also get to know vastu shastra tips direction the do’s and the don’ts regarding main door vaastu. And at last, you will know about Vaastu Door Vedh – what the peculiar obstructions are in main entrance which people rather ignore, but which can create misfortunes for the family and individuals in the house.


Directions from the vaastu basics. There are four cardinal directions and then there are the others like north-east, north-west, south-east and so on. Every direction provides us and takes from us something. What is that thing, you shall know it further:-

Is North Facing House Good?

Most people generally prefer a house with north facing main entrance as they say, it’s very auspicious. But Vaastu tells that it can also be very inauspicious, given that Vasstu for north facing house is not followed.

There is something more to this general truth. One should make sure that the main door is in north-east section of the north wall. Major benefit is that you will get early morning sunrays, fresh light, and positive energy entering the home from the east. Also as per vastu north east corner rule, this corner is said to be the best location for worshiping. The door must be located towards centre, not fixedly at the centre, of the wall. A wide window in the north-east corner would be more advantageous for the home.

South Facing Apartment Vastu

If your house faces South direction, then make sure that the main entrance or main door is located towards south-east as it is highly auspicious. Avoid building the door at the centre of the south wall or south-west corner of wall. Although there are numerous south west facing home benefits, but Feng Shui would be needed in order to harness the positive vibrations that this direction brings.

If you have the main door in south, then consider building another main door in north direction, as it balances the chi! To one’s surprise, this is also one of most useful vastu shastra remedies for home.


It’s a huge misconception among the people that a south facing house attracts omens. Such a house can be surprisingly most auspicious given that it attends the rules of south facing door vastu.

East Facing Entrance House Vastu

If you are looking towards building the main entrance in east facing wall, then fix the door in north-east section of the wall. North-east corner brings higher energies.

West Facing Entrance House Vastu

If your main door comes in West direction, then you must know that only the north-west half of west wall is auspicious for main entrance of the home.

As a general rule, each direction facing house can be very auspicious and also very inauspicious if the Vaastu rules are not followed. We shall further designate one post each to discuss all the cardinal directions facing houses in which we will also shed light upon certain widespread misconceptions and half-truths that are blindly believed and followed by major number of people.

Now, we will introduce Vastu Vedh or Door Vedh – the many types of obstructions in the main entrance and discuss the effects they cast on the home and its inhabitants.

Obstructions In The Main Entrance Of House And Its Effects

Positive / negative energy enters / exits through the path of main entrance of a house. If there is any kind of obstruction on this path, then it creates troubles for the people living in that house. You would be surprised to know that even an open road running just in front of the main entrance can cause the sudden death of the head of the family. Such are the immense effects of obstructions in the main door that their intensity can only be lessened down by following specific remedies for vastu defects.


Let’s learn first about the most common obstructions:

Dwar Vedh:

Basically the obstruction of air, light and sound at the main entrance or the compound wall is called Dwar Vedh. There are various types of Main Entrance Obstruction or Dwar Vedh, which are:

Swar Vedh:

Swar Vedh or sound obstacle happens when there is some creaking noise while opening or closing the main door as it attracts inauspicious incidents. Normally, there should be no such eerie sound coming from any door of the house. You must oil the hinges or replace the door immediately so that such sound doesn’t come out.

Koop Vedh:

Koop means well, it’s related to water. Water in feng shui is regarded as wealth or prosperity. Different sources of water, for example, well, septic tank, borewell, tap, drainage canals, underground storage tanks etc should not be anywhere outside the main entrance. Also, there should not any leaking tap inside the house. This results into gradual or sudden loss of wealth.

Brahma Vedh:

Presence of grinding mill, manufacturing site or any metal sharpening machine at the main entrance is called Brahma Vedh. This leads to clashes and conflicts among family members. Lives of dwellers also become chaotic and unstable.

Keel Vedh:

Keel means nail. If there is a peg to tie cattle or even a nail to hang something at the entrance, this causes incomprehensible obstacles or halts in progress.

Stumbh Vedh:

Stumbh implies pole. Stumbh Vedh means the presence of any electric pole, telephone pole etc. If there is any such pole at entrance it creates disagreement, difference of opinion among the family members. It also obstructs all kinds progress and growth of individuals.

Vastu Vedh:

Even your own construction can become an obstacle like location of garage, storeroom, watchman cabin, outhouse etc can simply lead to loss of property. Many people build a small cabin to contain shoes or a section for their pets. That can cause downfall to the family.

south west facing home benefits

There are also several other Vedhs which we shall discuss in detail in another post, entirely focused on Vastu door Vedh. You don’t need to get alarmed if there lies at your home’s main entrance any of the above mentioned vedha since with the help of Feng Shui, which is another science of beautiful living, the negative effects can be mitigated.

Since this post is dedicated to the main entrance or main door of house, we shall summarize for you the crucial points the do’s and don’ts that you can learn and quickly integrate in your living.

Vastu for Entrance (Main Door)

Reading Time: 4 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.


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: 4 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.


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.


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?


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.

Diwali/Deepawali 2017

भारत में हिन्दू धर्म का विशेष पर्व दीपावली अथवा दिवाली कार्तिक माह की अमावस्या को मनाया जाने वाला त्यौहार है. लक्ष्मी जी की पूजा करके उनसे धन-धान्य एवं एश्वर्य की कामना की जाती है. पांच दिन तक चलने वाले इस पर्व में मुख्य रूप से नरक चतुर्दशी, दीपावली, गोवर्धन पूजा और भइया दूज शामिल हैं.

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.
  • गंदगी न होने दें: दीपावली पर घरों की साफ़-सफाई इसीलिए की जाती है ताकि प्रभु आपके घर के सामने आकर कहीं वापिस न मुड़ जायें. घरों की सफाई, साफ-सुथरे कपड़े तथा आचरण में शुद्धता इस दिन आवश्यक है.


Diwali/दिवाली के दिन भूल कर भी न करे ये कार्य: 

जुआ न खेलें: कुछ लोग दिवाली पर जुआ खेलते हैं लेकिन शास्त्रों के अनुसार जुए में कलयुग का वास माना गया है. ऐसा माना जाता है कि जुआ खेलने से हमारे भाग्य में जो लक्ष्मी हमारे प्रारब्ध में लिखी गयी है वह भी धीरे- धीरे नष्ट हो जाती है. तथा हमें कुछ भी प्राप्त नहीं होगा.


Diwali/Deepawli Ganesh Laxmi Pujan vidhi and Mantra (दिवाली लक्ष्मी गणेश पूजन विधि और मंत्र )

लक्ष्मी पूजन के लिए आवश्यक है कि आप मंदिर में उनकी पसंदीदा वस्तुएं एकत्रित कर लें एवं पूजा करें. ध्यान रखें कि वस्त्रों में लक्ष्मी जी को लाल-गुलाबी या पीले रंग का रेशमी वस्त्र अधिक पसंद है. पुष्पों में कमल एवं गुलाब इनके प्रिय माने जाते हैं. हवन के समय फलों में श्रीफल, सीताफल, बेर, अनार व सिंघाड़े का उपयोग करें. इस बात का विशेष ध्यान रखें कि लक्ष्मीजी व गणेशजी की मूर्तियों का मुख पूर्व या पश्चिम की ओर रहे साथ ही यह भी ध्यान रखें कि लक्ष्मीजी, गणेशजी की दाहिनी ओर हों. दीवाली के दिन इस मन्त्र का जाप करें: ॐ महालक्ष्मी नमः

Pitru Paksh Sraadh Puja: कब , कैसे और कहाँ करें श्राध पूजा ?

Reading Time: 1 minute

Pitru Paksha is a sacred 16 –lunar day period in hindu calendar when the Hindus pay homage (food and offerings) to their ancestors as a form of thanks for what they have given the younger generation. The very famous Shradh (death rite) is performed during this time period.

This ritual is a sacred way of remembering and honouring the spirits of ancestors by the younger generations.

Listen to our Astrologer, Rama Shankar Upadhyay in this video, and know:-

  • What is Shradh or Tarpan? What happens around these days?
  • How to pay homage to your ancestors?
  • In the unfavourable circumstances, how can one still honour his ancestors?

And many more things that you must know in order to pay homage, and honour and thanks your loving ancestors.

Very often in life we suffer under mysterious conditions, we face unexplainable losses of life, wealth, fame etc. Rama ji explains in this video that it all happens due to “Pitra Rinn” that is “Debt” to our ancestors which we have not still paid.

If you are facing difficulties in performing shradh or have any questions in mind, please email us or simply post as comments. We hope to answer all your queries and doubts.

Do not forget that:

Our ancestors are our spirit guardians, who watch over us. They can feel our intentions and our emotions. Many people who are into tarot and meditation often seek their ancestors for their precious divine guidance.
