A House is nothing but a brick wall and mortar dwelling until we, who
live in it instill life and make it a Home. Additionally, a work place
is a very special place as we spend most of our time here. We do
everything to bring and sustain the peace and prosperity in our homes –
from creating great ambiences to performing the scared Vastu Shanti
Puja. It is an elaborative puja performed to appease Vastu Purush and
can be performed both in new as well as old homes. Vastu Purush is
symbolic of the heart, soul, and protector of a home. As per the Vastu
Shastra, a Vastu compliant home radiates a free flowing positive energy
resulting in a well-balanced environment. It also cascades peace and
prosperity among the dwellers. We do this puja to eliminate the ill
effects of the Vastu Doshas.
Importance and Significance of Vastu Shanti Puja
Vastu Shastra is believed to be backed by astronomical science.
A home or a building structure built as per vastu compliance is said
to be blessed by Vastu Purush
Vastu Shanti Puja is believed to remove the ill-effects of Vastu
Doshas of a particular plot, building or house.
Because of space constraints, many structures and homes built in
urban areas are not in compliance with vastu. Majority of the times,
making structural changes in accordance with vastu is impossible. In
such cases, Vastu Shanti Puja becomes very crucial to appease the Lord
and Deity of the House.
To be more precise we pray to the Lord of the directions, five
fundamental elements of nature and other natural forces. The five
elements as per Hindu Vedic texts are Prithvi (Earth), Agni (Fire), Jal
(Water), Akash (Sky) and Vaayu (Air).
With the Vastu Shanti Puja one can also beg for mercy in case the
construction has caused any harm to any sort of living beings like
trees, animals, birds, insects etc.
