Your pooja room is a positive area where you can experience a peaceful and a meditative state. According to Vaastu Shastra, pooja rooms should always harness a multitude of energies through mandir design and direction.
Below are some guidelines about pooja room Vaastu tips to help you to lead happy and prosperous life to get started.
The location of your pooja room is crucial in defining its auspicious atmosphere. North-east is an ideal direction followed by east and north. If you're designing a new home and can control where your pooja room goes, then we strongly suggest avoiding the basement or higher floors of the house. It's best to place your mandir on the ground level.
Ideal idol placement
Once the layout and structure of your pooja room are ready, it's time to place your idol. Ideal placement would be a few inches away from the wall with at least six inches from the ground. Portraits of the dead and paintings depicting violence do not belong in your pooja room.
Create a meditative atmosphere using light colours like white, light blue or light yellow. If you opt for marble then white or pale yellow or ochre would work well.Light colors help keep the space bright, while dark, loud shades can be distracting when you pray.
Let the light in
Since it would be the smallest room of your home, you will need bright lights to illuminate it. Aid your diyas with a window in the northeast direction. If that's not possible, use ample artificial lights as a substitution.
Not only will your pooja be bright but this would ensure that you'll enjoy lots of ventilation and can sit comfortably when you pray for long periods.Now that you have an easy-to-follow pooja room Vaastu guide, it's time to revamp your sacred space.
