10 Simple Vastu Tips for Home
- Leather Items
Leather is made up of animal’s skin, for which they are killed. Since puja room is the most auspicious one so bringing anything that is made up of leather is highly restricted. We must avoid leather items like purses, belts, mats, clothes, bags etc. as per Hindu Mythology in our puja room.
Footwear carries dust and often made up of leather. They should be avoided inside a puja room and must enter bare-foot inside. Try not to place shoe rack also near the puja room. Not only in houses, we should always enter bare-foot in any temple, mosque or Gurudwara we visit.
- Photos of Deceased Ancestors
People put the photos of their deceased ancestors along with the idols of deities they worship, just to pay respect and homage to their departed souls. They keep this as a respect to keep their soul at peace. However, as per the vastu experts, this should be immediately fixed as it can bring bad luck and unhappiness.
- Broken Idols and Stale Flowers
Placing an idol in temple is very easy, but taking its care is very difficult. Broken idols are not good and need immediate replacement. Stale and old flowers should not be kept in temple for worshiping your idol.
