Buying a house is the happiest moment for all. Indians are generally particular about Shubh Muhurats, especially when it comes to buying a house. Performing a Griha Pravesh, which is the house warming ceremony on an auspicious day, will bring good fortune and prosperity to the house and the people residing in it. Usually, the auspicious dates for the Griha Pravesh puja or the house warming ceremony are decided by the priest based on the astrological charts.
The rituals carried out as part of the puja vary from region to region while a few of them remain the same. It is believed that the puja will help get rid of negative energies in the house and fill it with positive vibrations. Often, one or two priests from a temple are called over to perform the puja.
As preparation for Griha Pravesh puja the next day, there are a few things you must do The very first thing to be done is to place a Kalash filled with water along with some turmeric powder, camphor, and kumkum and a small photo of the deity in the puja room or a clean shelf in the kitchen. Remember to keep the Kalash and the photo in the northeast-facing direction. The lady of the house usually keeps this when she enters the house for the first time with her right foot forward.
The Griha Pravesh ritual is conducted by putting a copper pot filled with water and nine types of grains and a coin placed in it. Coconut will be placed on the pot and one enters the house with it, accompanied by the chanting of mantras by a priest. The Ganesh puja mantra, Kalsh puja mantra, and Vastu puja mantra will be recited by the priest on the auspicious day.
