There can be nothing better than making the right beginning at the right time. Vaastu expert Naresh Singhal shows you the way
We have a two-room flat and due to paucity of space our shrine of worship is placed in the bedroom. Since Navratras have started and rituals are followed every day, is there any remedy based on vaastu that we can follow? First of all, it is not recommended to have a place of worship in your bedroom. Try to shift it to the other room, if possible or you can visit the temple to offer your prayers during Navratras. If at all you want to perform the pooja at home, it is recommended that during this time, you and your wife stay separately.
I feel I am not blessed as I am not able to follow the rituals during Navratra. I am into my menstrual cycle but still want to fast. Is there any other way I can follow the rituals with the help of vaastu? There is no need to feel guilty about this because it is a natural cycle which cannot be avoided. It is better not to fast during your menstrual cycle. You may follow the last day of Navratra and fast during that day.
We have bought a house recently but not moved in. We know that Navratras are auspicious and hence would want you to recommend a suitable day for griha pravesh. Also is it necessary to perform the “Vaastu Shanti” pooja along with the routine Navratra poojas before griha pravesh? As you know Navratras are auspicious in its own way and griha pravesh can be performed as the cosmic energy flow is more during these days. “Vaastu Vidhaan” pooja is performed during the construction of a house and if it is not followed, it is recommended that you perform the “Vastu Shanti” pooja as it will help in removing the negative energies, if any, in the house.
Recently we approached a vaastu consultant as we were facing certain problems and were told about the vaastu defects in our house. We were advised to instal pyramids as they are symbols of energy. Is it advisable to instal pyramids during the ongoing Navratras? What is a good time? Please advise. If we fall sick, we do not choose any particular day to visit the doctor. The same way, to protect the house from negative energy there are no particular days to be followed. Pyramids can be installed during Navratras under the guidance of a vaastu consultant.
We have bought an east-facing plot of 650 square feet. We want to start the construction process during Navratra. Which part of the plot should we start the construction process from to avoid vaastu defects? Navratras are auspicious for any new project and hence starting construction during this time is a very good idea. As regards direction, it is recommended to visit a Pandit. If it is not possible to do that, as per vaastu ,you can start the construction from the northeast direction.
The north-east corner of our plot is abandoned. We have heard that this is a major vaastu defect. We were also told that the offerings made in such a house will not be acceptable. Is this true? The north-east direction is the zone for worship. When this direction is abandoned or missing, a plot or apartment is considered defective. However, during Navratras the negative energy flow is low, so you can perform rituals irrespective of this defect.
I am planning to renovate my office during Navratra. Are there are any vaastu guidelines which can help me succeed in my business? As you know, Navratra is auspicious for any new project. So, it is a good idea for renovation. If you have planned to print new visiting cards, brochures or sign boards you can print in Chinese red colour. You can also paint the east wall yellow.
