vastuThe worshipping room is the most sacred corner in the house which is a zone of tranquility. Although the placement of a puja room itself brings positive energies in a house, designing the worship room as per Vaastu guidelines enhances positivism in the environment all around.

Worship is religious karma, a form of devotion towards a deity with the sense of divinity. Rather, worship is showing honour on an object which has been etymologised as “worthiness”. Worship claims the reality of its object and \defines its  meaning by reference to it. In other words worship is reverent honour and homage paid to the Almighty or to any object regarded as sacred.

In vedic religion, worship involves invoking higher forces to assist in spiritual and material progress. Worship takes a multitude of forms depending on community groups, cultures, geography conditions and language. There is a reverence of loving and being in love with focus of devotion. Worship is certainly confined to particular place of worship, like temples, church etc. Worship is usually performed to achieve a specific end or to integrate the body, the mind and the spirit in order to help the performer evolve into a higher being.

Vaastu is the most commonly used term, especially when it comes to establishing a place of worship. To have a happy and prosperous household we must lay stress on enhancing the positive energy inside our home. Vaastu increases wealth, well-being and prosperity if you live and pray in structures that allow positive cosmic forces.

Puja Room as per Vaastu: According to Vaastu, the north-east zone or the Eeshan (Ishan) corner of a house is the best suited area for placing the puja room.

Vaastu History:  As per the Puranas, when the “Vaastu Purusha” was brought down to the earth, his head lay in the north-east direction. So, while worshipping in this direction along with coming closer to the deity, we also pay obeisance to Vastu Purusha. The direction also receives the purifying rays of the rising sun, which purifies the environment and brings positivism and prosperity into our homes.


Designing of the Puja Room: The worship room should be designed carefully because when you meditate, you should gain the positive energies and then only, you feel charged. Many people tend to ignore the need for a separate worship room but we must not sideline the need to make a place for the Almighty. We are creating a room to get charged with positive vibrations every morning and that energy will energize our environment, mind, body and soul. Our work efficiency will increase and so the progress, prosperity and peace.
