Griha Pravesh Puja
What does it mean?
Grihapravesh (House warming) is a ritual performed before occupying a house for the first time.
Owning a house has always been considered a huge milestone in many cultures.
Vastu Shastra mentions that a house should be treated like a living being, and is capable of impacting the house inmates in many ways. It is also mentioned that an empty house is where negative forces dwell.
So, to purify and cultivate positivity in one's living space, a series of rituals are performed which are collectively known as 'Grihapravesh'.
How does this Help?
· The best way to begin your new life at your new place.
· Removal of negative energy surrounding the house.
· Divine chants absorbed by the house will provide mental peace and clarity during tough times.
· Progress in all aspects of life (health, studies, work, business and relationships)

Pujas performed for this Ritual
Before entering the house Gho Mata, cow is worshipped along with its calf. Cow represents Kamadhenu, the divine being who bestows abundant wealth and is also the personification of all the devas. Saubhagya dravyas (auspicious materials) such as saree, flowers and fruits are offered along with chanting of mantras and other offerings.
The doorstep of a house is considered an energy path in which Lord Ganesha, Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Mahalakshmi are worshipped to protect the house from unseen negative forces and for positive energy to flow through.
Ganesha, our favorite deity, demands for the first worship. He creates and destroys obstacles (Vighna Karta and Vighna Harta) which signifies his stature as Leader of removing obstacles and thus his name Vighnaraja.
