Home is an individual’s personal heaven that provides safety and security. It is a dream that every person wants to achieve once in their lifetime. A person works hard to build this small world of comfortness for a happily ever after. When it is constructed, there comes the moment of Griha Pravesh, also Known as Housewarming Ceremony. According to this ceremony, the first ingress in your new home must be done in a shubh muhurat for a happy and peaceful living. Griha Pravesh Muhurat are calculated keeping in mind the days, dates (Tithis), Lagnas and Nakshatra available. Housewarming ceremony in an auspicious muhurat while following all the correct rituals brings happiness, peace and prosperity in a home.

Types of Griha Pravesh

Generally, puja rituals performed for entering a newly constructed home is considered as Griha Pravesh or Housewarming ceremony. However according to Vastu Shastra, there are 3 types of Griha Pravesh:

  • Apoorva: When one enters a newly built home for living, it is called Apoorva Griha Pravesh.
  • Sapoorva: There come situations when a person has to leave his/her own house, and live in some other place. Then, after some time when they move back to their old house, the rituals thus performed are called Sapoorva Griha Pravesh.
  • Dwandhav: If one has to leave their home due to a natural calamity or other problems, Griha Pravesh Puja Vidhi, thus, performed to move back into the house is known as Dwandhav Griha Pravesh.

Shubh Muhurat for Griha Pravesh

Housewarming or Griha Pravesh Muhurat must be decided after consulting an experienced and pronounced astrologer. According to religious beliefs, months of Magha, Phalguna, Vaishakha and Jyeshtha are considered highly auspicious for this ceremony. However, it is prohibited to perform any propitious activity including housewarming ceremony during Chaturmas, i.e. in the month of Ashadha, Ashwin, Shravana and Bhadrapada. Month of Paush is also considered inauspicious for Griha Pravesh. It is also avoided on Tuesdays. On certain situations, sometimes housewarming ceremony is also not allowed during Saturdays and Sundays. Other than these, one can perform Griha Pravesh Puja Vidhi on any other day. Dvitiya, Tritiya, Panchami, Saptami, Dashami, Ekadashi, Dwadashi and Trayodashi of Shukla Paksha, except Amavasya and Purnima, are also considered auspicious for Griha Pravesh ceremony.

Shubh Lagna: Lagna or ascendant holds great significance during Griha Pravesh. One should keep following things in mind while performing this ceremony:

  • It should not be 8th ascendant from birth ascendant / birth sign of the house owner.
  • Housewarming ceremony should be performed when ascendant is 3rd, 6th, 10th or 11th or fixed from birth sign / birth ascendant.
  • Griha Pravesh is considered auspicious when a benefic planet is positioned in 1st, 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th or 10th house from ascendant house and malefic planet is in 3rd, 6th or 11th house from ascendant house, along with 4th and 8th house to be pure at that time.

Do’s on Griha Pravesh

Griha Pravesh Puja Vidhi must be done by an experienced astrologer or Pandit. After conclusion of Puja rituals, one should enter their home while keeping following things in mind:

  • Decorate the main entrance of the house with festoons (Mala) of flowers and leaves. Draw Rangoli in your courtyard.
  • Fill a vessel (Kalash) with Gangaajal or holy water. Put eight leaves of Mango or Ashoka in it and keep a coconut on top.
  • Draw Swastika sign with Kumkum on Coconut and Kalash.
  • After Puja, enter your new home in the light of Sun with auspicious Kalash in hands.
  • Male and female of the house (main owner) should carry five religious things with them while entering the house, which are Coconut, Turmeric, Jaggery (Gur), Rice and Milk.
  • Male should put his right leg first while female her left leg during Griha Pravesh.
  • One should take Lord Ganesha idol, Dakshinavarti Shankh and Shri Yantra to their new home on the day of housewarming ceremony.
  • Establish Kalash in the northeast direction of your home or in Puja Ghar while worshipping Lord Ganesha.
  • Worship your Kitchen and draw a Swastika sign in there.
  • First things you should do in your kitchen is boil milk and then, make some sweet (Mishthan) and offer it as Bhoga to God.
  • Offer Bhoga of your first cooked meal as well to God after Griha Pravesh.
  • Later, offer food to a cow, crow, dog and ants as well.
  • In the end, offer food and donate things to a Brahmin or needy person.

Don’ts on Griha Pravesh

It has been observed that sometimes people enter their new home before it is completely constructed, which is considered wrong in Hinduism and also as per religious texts. So, one should keep following things in mind during Griha Pravesh:

  • Avoid Griha Pravesh until doors are placed on the main entrance and roof of the house is completely constructed.
  • One must worship Vastu Devta during Griha Pravesh or housewarming ceremony.
  • After Griha Pravesh, one should not padlock their main door for few days as it is considered inauspicious.

Vastu Puja - Importance of Vastu Shanti

Vastu Devta is worshipped to avoid any kind of Vastu Dosha and for the peacefulness at home. It is performed before Griha Pravesh.

  • To worship the God, water along with nine types of food grains and a One rupee coin is kept in a copper vessel which is placed on the main door of the house.
  • Hawan is also performed for Vastu Shanti and for avoiding the malefic effects of planets.
  • Establishing Vastu Yantra at home also pleases Vastu Devta. It also boosts the peace and prosperity of the house.

Yantra Establishment at New Home

After Griha Pravesh, Yantra are also established to maintain happiness, peace and prosperity in the new house. One can establish any Yantra as per their heart’s reverence.

  • Mahamrityunjaya Yantra: Establishing and worshipping this Yantra in new home prevents from all sufferings and diseases.
  • Navgraha Yantra: This Yantra removes malefic effects of all the planets and brings harmony and good fortune in home.
