The event of one’s first entry into a new house should do Griha Pravesh for a better future in the house. Once the home is ready, the family moves in on a fortunate day that is determined by the astrological charts. Clarity of panchang (almanac) and fortunate time (muhurta) must be considered in the Griha Pravesh. Hindu priest for housewarming, Ketul Joshi also provides this service. Three types of Griha Pravesh have been stated in our antique scriptures:
Apoorva (New) Griha Pravesh should perform when one takes first entry to newly built house on a particular property.
Sapoorva Griha Pravesh should be done when one takes entry into an already existing house after travelling abroad or migration.
As soon as one takes entry into a house after refurbishment or renovation consequent to damage because of fire, flood or earthquake is named as dwandwah (Old) Griha Pravesh.
For Apoorva Graha Pravesh, the exact auspicious time needs to be followed. For Apoorva Graha Pravesh or dwandwah Graha Pravesh, the clarity of the panchang should be given due to consideration.
Vastu Shastra is a conventional Indian system of architecture (precisely translating to “science of architecture”) that helps in attaining happiness, prosperity, mental peace, and harmony in-home and workplace. It involves a scientific study of directions with the combination of the five elements of nature (fire, water, earth, and air and space) to create a balance between humans and nature and to pave way for happiness, good health, wealth, and prosperity.
This science sets out certain rules and regulations regarding the architecture and construction of residential or commercial
buildings. The five elements or the “Paanchbhootas” are utilized by the study of Vaastu Shastra to eliminate the troubles of human beings in homes or offices by changing the interior and exterior structural configurations. Vastu Shanti Puja forms an integral part of Vastu Shastra as it purges home or an office from negative or bad impacts caused by the evil energies or the faults in construction.
