Pooja Room Vastu

Every house has a different zone used for different purposes. One of the important areas in any home is a zone of tranquility which is known as a  temple or pooja room. According to Vastu, this zone is best suitable for a pooja (prayer) room or home temple. This is a place that brings us closer to our Creator. It can be considered lifting one’s mind and heart to God. Here we can talk to God about the everyday things of human life, about our joys and sorrows, our needs and wants, our disappointments, and pleasures. Prayer and how an individual prays is often shaped by religious beliefs. But one does not have to belong to a specific religion to pray.

Personalize your space

Create a alter or shrine dedicated space away from the hustle of modern life, where you can meditate, pray, or surrender to the supreme god.  When this space is personalized, this space provides you with a focus for your energy to let the stress of everyday life slip away.

The best time for the prayer can be during early morning or evening, a thank you for a good day, for the warmth of the sun, for the love of friends who support and assist us even on our bad or difficult days. This is a space where human-made problems are left behind like a wet umbrella at the door. Set a small altar on the east wall of the North-east zone, if you do not have the space to allocate an entire room for pooja.

Consider the following questions

  • Where do you place worship space? (Direction)
  • What does your prayer space look like? (Interior)
  • What accessories help you in your prayer room? (tools for prayer)
  • When do you pray? (Prayer time)

Space and place within which we pray matters. According to Sarah Starr, a writer and life coach “This space serve as a daily reminder to connect with yourself and with the divine.”
