To own a beautiful home needs many more precautions to take beforehand. The first point is to ensure the purity and security of the land upon which the construction is going to be take place. This is for the whole goodness of the upcoming procedures and the future. The land carries an auspicious aura and blessing for the existence of a perfect home. As per the tradition of India, Bhoomi puja is the supreme thing to conduct for acquiring all the positivity on the land and to bring over success to the house construction. It is a commonly done in India to find out the perfect date to begin the construction. Hence finding out the perfect muhurat date for the event is important too.
The ritual of Bhumi puja takes away all the negativities connected to the land. The fundamental objective of Bhumi puja is to take blessings from the Bhumi goddess and vastu purush, the deity of all directions for the building process. The five elements of nature such as earth, water, fire, air and space are also worshipped during the occasion. The ritual includes laying foundation stone for the house on the ground and evoking the God’s blessings. Normally the Bhumi puja takes place in the north-east corner of the construction site. According to the vastu experts, the digging at the site should start from the north-east corner of the land as well. The date of Bhumi puja is normally advised by an astrologer as per the details of the building owner’s horoscope. In other cases the date can be decided on the basis of tithi, nakshatra and all.
