Tips for Griha Pravesh this Navratri!!

When a family enters into a new house, homeowners must give utmost importance to auspicious muhurtas and the Griha Pravesh ceremony in particular. Griha Pravesh or first entry into a newly built home is an essential aspect of Vaastu Shaastra. Griha Pravesh is conducted to accurately align the five elements of house – the sun, earth, water, fire and wind to bring happiness, prosperity and good health to the family.

As per Hindu beliefs, success and happiness of a house depends a lot on the auspicious time when the Griha Pravesh pooja is performed.  You can contact a learned pandit to find out the most auspicious days for shifting to a new house. It is believed that if you shift in these best days, evil forces and negativity is kept away from your home and life becomes easy with minimum obstructions and struggles. It opens a path to prosperity, peace and happiness.

When it comes to best nakshatra for griha pravesh, Navratri is considered as one of the most auspicious period to enter your house for the first time. The ceremony, if completed in this favourable time can ward off evil effects present in that area and make it “Shubh” or auspicious.

But, many of us are not aware of customs associated with Griha Pravesh, so let us discuss a few Griha Pravesh tips to make this occasion both enjoyable and auspicious.

Tips for Griha Pravesh !!

  • The Griha Pravesh must be done, only when the home is ready-to-move-in and the family is willing to shift there. All the doors and shutters should be in place along with the roof covering the house before the ceremony day, as this ensures to bring peace into the lives of the inhabitants.
  • Devi idols should be settled in the east facing side of the house during the Griha Pravesh ceremony and should not be kept against walls. Ganapati Pujan should also be performed.
  • The floors should be mopped up and thoroughly cleaned using salt for the purification of the house before the puja takes place. Also, holy water should be sprinkled all over the house to instil a sense of purity.
  • The main door of the house should be furnished with a Toran of mango leaves and bright coloured fresh flowers. The main gate is known as the Simha Dwara and is the face of the Vastu Purusha and should be decorated with Swastika symbols and Laxmi feet for good fortune.
  • The floor should be adorned with a colourful rangoli made up of vibrant colours and rice flour. It is believed that Rangoli invites Goddess Laxmi, the deity of wealth and prosperity in the home.
  • A person should always set forward their right foot first when entering a new house.
  • A pot or Kalash filled with water or milk should be placed inside the house on the day of the Griha Pravesh and later donated to someone in a temple the next day or poor and deprived people.
  • A feast to priests must be offered on this auspicious occasion.
  • On the day of Griha Pravesh, the inhabitants of the house should sleep in that home for that night at least.
  • Milk should be boiled in the kitchen of the home on Griha Pravesh day to bring fortune.
  • For the next 40 days, the house should not be left entirely vacant, and at least one member of the house should be present in the home always.

It is believed that if you follow the above rules with your whole heart and soul, it will definitely bring prosperity in the home and good fortune to the homeowners.  It also keeps all kinds of crisis and disaster at bay.
