Ganesha in Vastu

September 22nd 2007 09:06
Category: Vastu
I saw a lot of people searching for the phrase ‘Ganesha in Vastu’ hence thought of sharing my knowledge and experience on the use of Ganesha figurines and paintings in Vastu.

For Part 2 of this post read - Ganesha in Vastu - Part 2

Ganesha is a symbol of prosperity and profound knowledge and is believed to be destroyer of all obstacles which come in our way in our undertakings.


Ganesha should be installed on the top of the entrance of the house to deflect all negative energies and to remove the Vastu defects of wrong position of the entrance. However, when you install a Ganesha idol on the entrance above the door frame, you must ensure that they are installed in pair and back to back on both sides. It is believed that Ganesha is always accompanied by his two wives Riddhi (Prosperity) and Siddhi (Knowledge) and poverty resides behind his back. If you just install one Ganesha Idol facing outside at the entrance its back will have your abode and you do not want poverty inside the house. Hence it is recommended to install Ganapati, back to back at the entrance.

Similarly, when you install an idol or painting in the house, place it next to an external wall and not next to a wall that separates two rooms of the house. Ganesha can face the North direction as he is happy if he is facing North which is the abode of his father
– Lord Shiva.


Most importantly you should take care that Ganesha is not made of broken pieces of wood, leaves, either in idol or in a painting. The first figure with this post shows Ganesha made of disjoint leaves, which should not be used. The second figure shows Lord Ganesha made of leaves but joined with one another. Avoid abstract paintings of Ganesha. Like all abstract paintings, they are not recommended as per Vastu.

One last advise on this topic; do not install Ganesha with the trunk to His right.

Non-hindus can also use Lord Ganesha as a Vastu cure. However, you must ensure that He is properly revered and respected by all members of the family, kept clean and in a clean surrounding.

God Bless!!

"Ganesha can face the North direction as he is happy if he is facing North which is the abode of his father – Lord Shiva."

does this mean Ganesha should be placed in south ?

The main door of my house opens to North i.e a person enters my house facing to South. In this case should i Install Ganesha on both side, i.e outside facing North and inside facing south. Do you suggest specific Ganesha frame.
Some one told me me earlier that if your main door is facing South, they should install Ganesha above door frame inside facing north and lord Hanuman above door frame outside facing south.

Thank you

The house is like train; first room is living room then next comes kitchen. Finally bedroom and rest room is on the north side of the living room. I would appreciate your advices on this situation, because they are not living best of their life.

Where did you get your information about Ganesha's trunk facing His right is not good? You must be credible in what you say. Are you a Ganesha devotee in the first place?

March 29th 2008 15:15
Dear Vivek

You can go ahead and do that it will not be a problem.

Dear Anonymous

Ganesha's trunk facing right is definitely not incorrect. Only such a figurine should be placed in temples where it is worshipped daily.

Ganesha figurine which has trunk facing right when placed in the home should be worshipped daily without fail. If you can do it go ahead. As you seem to be a Ganesha devotee you will agree with this logic.

Hello Ma Upma:

I offer to Lord Shiva on Mondays. And, have a wooden statue of Lord Ganesha that I am trying to figure out where to place. My apartment is located on the north-east corner of the building. And, my door opens facing east. How should I position my Lord Ganesha statue ?

Also, I currently have my image of Lord Shiva facing north, with his lingam pointing directly to him. Would you happen to know if this is correct ?

Thanks for the help.

I read the above and have clarifications on the Ganesha Idol/pictures.

Our house is facing north and till recently had
a. one ganesh facing west
b. three ganesh idols facing north
c. few ganesh pictures facing east.
Each of them is not at the extreme end of the house fixed to the wall or in a shelf, however in many places in the middle of the house

One of my friends suggested the following :
a. The ganesha facing west is now being changed to face north and there are no rooms behind his back.
b. three ganesh idols is now being packed and to kept only during dussehra for the doll festival (famous in the southern part of india)
c. few ganesha pictures - they are being removed and with thanksgiving being put in running water
d. we propose to put two ganesha's back to back at the entrance (as is similarly expressed by you).
e. there was a ganesha in the office whose back was the room of the promoer of the co. now I have changed it and is now facing east. the back is now - leads to the open air outisde
Please advise me on the above if it is ok and if you wish to make any changes/or offer anysuggestions.

Thanks

Sorry for my late response


Shiva Worshipper

You can place Shiva facing South and Ganesh facing North. Shivaling can be in between the two. No problem.

Raghu

You can follow all the suggestions given by a friend. Always remember when you do anything related to religion it should be done with full trust. Seeking suggestion from many people on the same topic will dilute the trust and will not give the desired results.

Priyanka

Please the Ganesha on the Southern wall facing North.

Thank you for the answer, MaaUpma. I have another question if you do not mind. As mentioned I worship Lord Shiva. I know the day most people worship him is Monday. But on my readings by a pundit, I was told the best day to worship him for me, was on Saturday.

I guess my question is would you agree with this view. I am new to offering, and seeking advice that I am doing it correctly.

Thank you.

Comment by MaaUpma

August 11th 2008 05:40
Dear Selena

There can be two reasons why you worship Lord Shiva

1) to worship HIm as a devotee with/without anything expected in return. In this case you can worship Him daily and more so on Monday.

2) Worship Him for astrological reasons. The malefic effects of Planet Saturn are believed to be suppressed if you worship Lord Shiva on Saturdays.

My suggestion would be to worship Him daily and if not possible, worship Him specially on Mondays and Saturdays.

Hello.. .your posts have been very informative and clears all the doubts. I was reading about Ganesha's trunk right side should not be kept inside the house. We have one idol at home whose trunk is right side. What should we do now as this idol has been in our house for last 4 years.
Also please tell how many idols we can keep in our house. Thanks Rajneesh

Comment by MaaUpma

September 1st 2008 11:58
Dear Rajneesh

If you are not facing any problem in life then you may let the Ganesha with its trunk on right remain in the house. Else you can immerse it in a pond, well or river.

Ganesha with its trunk towards its heart is kept at homes because we live a material life and Ganesha with its trunk on its left is said to be closer to His monther, Parvati who is a Goddess of material world. While Ganesha with his trunk on right is said to be closer to his Father, Shiva who is the ultimate in spiritualism.

Hence Ganesha with right trunk is kept in temple which is a pious place and worhipped daily.

We are inviting lord ganesha on 3rd and would it be ok to immerse both the ganesha (one coming tommorow and other one with right side trunk) on the same day and time ? Regards, Rajneesh

Comment by MaaUpma

September 2nd 2008 08:25
Dear Rajneesh

You can place as many Ganesha idols as possible.

Only when you are placing a Ganesha Idol in your Pooja then it should be placed such that it faces South or West such that when you are praying you face the North or East.

September 2nd 2008 08:30

You can immerse both the idols on the day you immerse the one you are inviting on Ganesh Chaturthi. Depends whether you follow the 1.5 days, 3 days, 7 days or full 10 days ritual.

If you create temple in your home and you have other idols such as lord Shiva, Ganapati, laxmi, srasvati, etc can you entire temple face north or will all gods need to face different directions depending on idols?

Your advice is greatly appreciated.

All i want to ask is there any problem in having more than 1 shivling, ganesh idol n any other pictures og gods more than one like i have 3 shivling, 3 ganeshji n 2 laxmi maa picture in my pooja room is it ok according to vastu.

Next is my husband is found of buying big posters of God n Goddess can v stick it in pooja room , kitchen ( annapurna maa ) living room , big pictures means 4 by 6 foot , is it ok to stick pictures.

Regarding Ganesha with the trunk on the right I have already mentioned the reason you should not place in the house.

As my Anonymous friend has elaborated in his/her comment below yours rest is upto your trust.

There is no problem in sticking posters of God and Goddess in the house.

There should be only one shiv ling in the house. Place all others in a temple near your house or immerse it in a lake or well.

Ganesha and Lakshmi idols can be more than one and do not worry on that

Comment by MaaUpma

October 3rd 2008 08:48
Dear Shiv

Generally Ganesha idols placed in home should be of size less than a human being else they are better placed in temple in the larger than life forms.

You can place it in the west wall facing east or if possible on the South wall facing North

You will have to describe the goddess sitting on his lap. In most parts of India - Riddhi and Siddhi (Wealth and Knowledge) are considered to be be the consorts of Lord Ganesha and their idols are placed along with Ganesha. In certain parts Goddess Lakshmi is considered her sister and placed along with Him.

Goddess Lakshmi is depicted holding Lotus in two of her arms. So if the diety has two lotus flowers consider it to be Goddess Lakshmi.

I suggest you take a proper Vastu consultancy for the house. If you are keen you can send me the layouts on my email ID and I take it forward from there.

Placing Ganesha idols on the two sides of the gate does not remove the vastu dosh. You should place a convex Bagua Mirror on the main entrance (on the wall just above the main door) and also back to back Ganesha idols as suggested.

Dear Ashi

Generally these towers are high transmission towers. About 14 years back we were purchasing a plot of land for constructing a house near such a tower. At that time I did not know astrology and vastu.

However, when my husband consulted his professor of Electricity he informed that such towers are high voltage transmission lines and carry electricity at 22000 to 44000 KW. The problem is that they create an electromagnetic field around them which definitely effect the electrical and electronic equipments in the house. Moreover, this field may effect the mental health of those who are occuying the house.

Since you have already bought the flat I do not think you can do much at this time. I will however, suggest you a Vastu recommendation. Please send me the layout of the house along with the directions on my Email ID mentioned in the text next to my photo above and we will take it forward from there.

Hi, thank you for the details of the vastu. I have a question about how the Ganesha vastu information you have provided relates to the Laxmi Ma photos I have usually seen in houses. Most every house in our family has always had a Laxmi photo inside the house, above the door, facing into the house. Would you know about this?

Per your suggestions, we should have a Ganesh photo inside the door and outside the door area. So in that case, would I put Ganesh ji's photo next to Laxmi Ma?

Or should I just put the two photos of Ganesh ji inside and outside? Is there Vastu on putting Laxmi Ma photos at the door?

Thank you very much.

I have a Ganesha idol and I have placed it near the entrance of my house facing inside the house. My house is south facing means anyone enters my house faces north. On the other side of the wall where I have placed the Gamesha idol is not accessible as it is a flat on 2nd floor. Please advice if this location is allright or shall I change it.

Respected maa ji,
we are running a coaching institute. we have hung an idol of lord ganesha facing the main entrance.in this way the idol faces towards north.and there is a toilet exactly opposite the entrance. pl suggest weatherthe position is right or not.

Dear Sachin

Ganesha should not be placed when it is facing the tioilet. Kindly remove it.

Place a Vastu Dosh Nivarana Yantra (which you will find at any shop selling Pooja Material) and paste it just above the Main door.

Hello Maa Upma:

I have a question for a friend of mine. She has a framed Lord Ganesha picture, that she would like to hang in her apartment, Her door faces North, but the apartment itself is located on the East side of our building. Can you let me now what direction is best to hang this picture frame. ?

Thanks so much.

You can place the idols in such a way that Goddess Lakshmi is on the right of Lord Ganesha. This means that when you see from your perspective, Lakhsmi should be on your left and Ganesha on your right

I recently bought a duplex house and apparently this house doesn't have pooja room. I plan to have a pooja room on the second floor with minor changes. I have read articles on vastu that pooja room should be constructed only on the ground floor. I don't understand reason why vastu insists that way, because if there is a pooja room on the ground floor and people walking on the second floor in duplex house isn't that disrespectful? Your thoughts

You can have the Pooja Room on First/Second/Thrid Floor or any other floor.

It can be on Ground Floor also and does not become disrespectful when people are waltking on the floor above it.

Pranam Maa,
I have a puja corner in my home which is in the NE corner of my hose and I have kept all the deities in that Puja corner. i worshiped Shiva every day and keep fast on Mondays. I recently found that I have a Right-Trunk Ganesh idol for last 4 years and now I remember that one of my friend gave it to me as a gift. I read your articles and I am so blessed to find and read such an informative article.
Should I give this idol back to my friend and ask him to put it in temple or I should do it myself. I am asking this because it may help my friend if at all any kind of negative energy he might be receiving by performing this act ( intentionally or un-intentionally). I would like to help him and help myself.
Please advise and forgive my ignorance.

i just bought a house which have empty slots at the both side of the door.
i planned to place ganesha statues in each slots but my friend insisted that only kandristi ganapathi can be placed outside of the house and she also added that i cant place two statues outside of the house.... i really want to place ganesha statues in that slots rather than other ornaments....

is it fordidden or bad vastu to place other ganesha statutes than kandristhi ganapathi?

can i place other ganesha statues like the one playing music instruments as i bought 2 ganesha playing classical instruments which sit perfectly there?

is it bad to place 2 statues outside the house especially in the slots?

im new to this and i don want to make mistake as im clueless..please enlighten me

Dear Ma Upma,

While searching the web, we came upon your interesting blogs, which have partly answered many of our queries on placement of Lord Ganesha.

Our problem is, whatever is our earnings, which is very good, we are always short of funds.

My wife is an avid Ganesh collector. Our entrance door is towards North East and the door faces east exactly. We have placed one small Ganesha idol on the outside of the door, His back facing inwards.

The collection of idols are placed in the passage way, each of them facing east. Their backs face inwards, towards the wall seperating this place from the kitchen

You have recommended the idols to be placed facing North. The place available on the South side, but the backs would then be towards the wall seperating a toilet.

We would ver much appreciate your help.

With Warm Regards,

Gautam

Dear Gautam

First about the Ganesha Idol on the entrance. The most important thing which I have written on this post is to place Ganesha on the Entrance Back-to-Back. Place two Ganesha idol one above the entrance door in the wall above it and one exactly behind it if you are unable to understand this please see the post Ganesha in Vastu: Video

Do not worry about Ganesha facing south and just do the above on the entrance of the house.

Secondly let us come to the problem of Having a great income but always finding yourself short of funds. Please note that for this a detailed consultation will be required. If you are interested please write to me at astroupma@gmail.com and I will be glad to help

hi MaaUpma,

I am ruchir here. I had a small question with respect to my office desk.

In our office we have cubicle desks, so we can actually face 3 directions on the same desk. Currently, I am sitting in a desk which is facing south and my back is to the door, which i think is surely wrong (and maybe that is why I have been struggling in my career). I do have a ganesha and hanumanji statue on my desk facing north.

Now, recently there are 2 vacant desks for me to change to. Both face North east in the centre of the desk. let me describe each desk.

The first one has its back towards the glass wall, but is diagonal to the entrance to the office. The only problem i think is that there is a circular beam which runs close to the desk.

The second one, faces north east at the centre and is facing a wall.

Which do you think is a better desk?

ruchir

Moreover i am not having any ganesha's idol as of now..all i have is a silver coin...of laksmi-ganesha....should i purchase an idol also or worshipping silver coin is equally good.....Also silver coin has to be place in south so that ganesha is facing north ..or it just applies on idols ?

Please guide me..I will be really obliged...

Now in my house I have place a ganesh idol in the main room facing towards the door (ie, main entrance). This idol is on a wall that separates my main room{hall} from the bathroom. Do I have to make any change of location to this ganesh idol. Please advise.

Pranam ma Upma,

Your ganesha at entrance is good and like all others
I still have a query,the figurenes need to be the same at back to back, and other minor queries,Please advise

1. Currently at the entrance above my door I have single base with a Laxmi (centre) Ganesha (my left) Saraswati (my right) while facing, Is that fine and do I have to have a similar figurene on the inside wall above the door.

Do I need to change it to ONLY GANESHA figurine on both sides. or can I now only fix single Ganesha statue inside and let the triple gods statue remain outside

2. I also have a huge Lalbaugcha Raja picture frame in the living room and the picture is facing south, I feel that when I am leaving home and enetring home we get to see the Picture for positiveness. (AS you have mentioned Ganesha is happy facing North)

3. I have an illuminated waterfall frame at the living room wall next to the door and that is facing North, Is that OKAY?

4. Also I have a fish tank with 2 white sharks and 2 pearl guramis at the southeast corner of the living room next to the door(the door is south facing means when I leave home it is South). Is the fish tank at a good location.

I know you have loads of questions to answer for various people , but it will be kind and blessing if if you give me the answers for all the queries as above,

With best regards

Dear Uday

As you must be aware from the top of this page that personalized consultation is a paid service. However, I will answer few of your questions for the benefit of all my readers

1. The two figurines may not be identical. In fact the figurine in the front should be smaller than the one on the inside wall.

2. Ideally you should swap the Lalbaugcha Ganesha and the waterfall painting (from the description above), but since you have written that the purpose is to see Him when entering and exiting the house, you may as well let the two remain where they are.

3. Ideally place a single Ganesha figurine above the main entrance on the outside wall and move the other figurines inside.

Should you want to undertake a Vastu Consultation, I can visit your home in Mumbai and give you a detailed analysis

Ganesha statue below the staircase is not appropriate. On the entracne place the Ganesha figurines back to back. You can also use His photo instead of a figurine. Also if they are not of the same size, place the bigger one on the inside wall.

I have a North facing entrance. Initially I had put a Ganesha idol frame on top of my door. Everyone told me that I should be putting a Ganesha frame on the inner side (so as to make Ganesha back to back) or remove the frame on the top of my door.
I have been told by many that the Ganapati idol should not face South. Somehow the thought is too deep in my mind .. so I removed the frame from the top of door entrance.

Is it okay if I place the Ganesha frame on the wall in my house facing the door and on top of my door. That way I can have the ganesha not facing south. But is that correct ?

Also, is it possible to understand why a Ganesha idol cannot face South or why there should be a Ganesha back to back on the entrance of the door ?

Comment by MaaUpma

You can definitely place the Ganesha idol facing south if it is back to back with one facing North as in your case.

There is something which has been bothering me for sometime. I live in a flat and the main door of my house (which is east facing) is directly aligned to another door opening in a bedroom which in turn is directly aligned to another door opening to a balcony, i.e., there are 3 doors in one straight line. Is this advisable or should I keep one of these doors closed?
Your comments would be really appreciated.

Thank you for your advice. Though I still have a query regarding this topic- If I keep the last door closed (the one that opens in the balcony) would that be advisable. In that case there will be two doors (main door and the door in the middle) directly aligned to each other which would be open.
On another topic, would like to know if I can place a Ganesh full figurine on the inside of the main door and a Ganesh 'face' on the outside of the main door.
Thanking you in advance.

Hello Maa,

I have a North facing entrance, i.e., the person entering the house will be facing the South direction.
I completly understood your back to back Ganesha figures on top of the entrance and also understand that in back to back situation, Ganesha idol can face South direction.

My problem is that the person, while entering the house, will see Bathroom door (not the toilet, it is seperate), i.e. Bathroom door is directly in front of entrance (in a lobby, 8 feet apart from entrance door).

How to handle this situation.

DearMa Upma,

I read both these statements in this commentary.

"Ganesha can face the North direction as he is happy if he is facing North which is the abode of his father – Lord Shiva."
Aug 3, 2008 - "You can place it such that when you worship Him you are facing the North or East"

I am a bit confused, because these statements convey opposite meanings.

Dear Sameer

When you are placing Lord Ganesha in your Prayer room or on the altar place it in such a way that you face North or East while praying.

When you are placing Lord Ganesha figurine or painting anywhere other than the Pooja (Prayer Room/place) preferably place it such that it is facing North.

Hope that clarifies

I did not believe in Vaastu or any such rituals, till I had my personal experience. I am an ivy league educated guy with great professional network. Since we moved to our bigger new home in USA (most homes are not Vaastu compliant), there has been obstacle from minor to major task, appliances go bad(TV, AC etc.), been laid off from job twice since moving to new home 2 year ago. That's when I found out my house entrance faces south, all toilets are in wrong places etc. I can not sell the house in this down market. Is there anyway I can mitigate these problems. Ganesha Idol is one, next I heard keeping Fish bowl also helps Is this true? Thanks so much for your time and effort.

Dear Ma Upma,
I have recently received a small gold Lord Ganesha idol. Although I do not worship the Hindi Idols, I have much respect for them. I wanted to ask you where to place the Lord Ganesha in my bedroom. Please help. The door to my room is on the east wall, the west wall of my room has a window facing the ocean, the south wall has nothing behind it and my north wall has a bathroom and closet, behind the bathroom and closet is my living room. My bedroom has a crystal grid too. Thank you so much for your time Ma Upma.

Ma Upma,

Ive read the entire blog of Q&A here. Got a really insight into things i never knew before.

I ve read again n again the improtance of back-to-back Ganesha idols with trunk to His left.

I am left with the below doubts:

- Is there any other specification to be kept in mind while choosing Ganesha idols for the front & inside entrance?
- Like color of idol, material of idol (wood, clay, marble, metal, brass etc)?
- Mudra of idol (like what should Ganesha be holding?, his hands should be blessing or in meditation postion?)

Any other advise you might want to give?

Regards,
Nidhi Gupta.

There are no futher considerations when choosing the Ganesha Idol. Just take care that is a full figurine and not just the trunk or upper half as you get nowadays. It can be of Wood or Resin or porcelein.

Also can this cure frm the wrong entrance ( east of south east?)

With thanks and best regards,

Dear Pawan

Yes you can place the Ganesh near the Iron gate. There is no problem in placing the Pooja Room in the North Wall

Dear Piya

I need to understand the layout before suggesting

Dear Priyanka

Great. You are from my city where I stayed earlier.

It is OK to place Ganesha on the door itself if there is no other option.

Whether it can be a cure for the wrong entrance or not can be determined by studying the layout of your house in more details. Please write to me.

Hello

I have been advised not to keep multiple murtis of Ganesha in the house, is that true? I have an idol in each house, with the back towards the outer wall. Do I need to take them all off?

Comment by MaaUpma

September 14th 2009 06:25
Dear Anjali

I personally have kept multiple idols of Lord Ganesha in my house and have not faced any problem for the last several years.

Have trust in the Lord and He will not harm you. Just take care that none of the Idols are placed in bedrooms or near to toilets.


Placing the idol with back toucing the outer wall is considered good.

2.) we are planning to buy a new pooja ghar, so which one is more auspicious white marble or sandal wood? also how the roof / top of the pooja ghar should be i.e., flat and on the top face should have bow in front or how?? and which direction should we place this pooja ghar. presently we are keeping in S-E direction / corner where gods are facing in N-W direction.

Dear Sachin

Personalized consultation are generally charged ones.

Here are some general answers

Please read my blog for two posts on "Vastu for Prayer Room" - Click 1 and Click 2.

The Pooja Ghar should have a pyramidical dome atop it and rest is for you to decide on its aesthetics.

A pooja Ghar made of wood (as light as possible) will be good

Just keep the Shva Linga made of Brass in your pooja and donate the others in a temple or submerge them in water on a Monday.

God Bless!!

Dear Ma, Good Day To You !
Thanks for your quick reply. And Ma thanks for your service to all who need an advice over vastu. Thanks for spreading awareness of vastu among peoples.
Ma my questions is:
The brass shiva linga i have in my pooja ghar is very old, i think its from ancestral's.. and i will describe you its structure... the murti is about 2 by 2 inches base and one inch tall.... its a total 4 pieces shiva linga, at the base (1st part) it has one strip with three holes, one centre hole to accomodate shiva linga (now facing North Direction) and one side hole for naag devta which is normally we see on shiva's head.. like that and the other hole was for nandi, but that lord shiva's nandi is not there in that (its lost while we doing nirmalya visarjana). so only two pieces on that strip are there third is lost... also shiva linga's base is directing in North direction and where as the Naag devta is facing in West direction.... also as i said we have another two shiva lingas made of typical special stone black in colour... so plsss suggest whether to keep the brass one ( because i did not mention the above information in my previous queries, so with this detailed information,) Ma pls guide me further. and which direction should we keep the shiva linga.... and can we keep a murti having both the shiva linga and his nandi in pooja ghar.

Ma Hope you got my question. Please Reply. Eagerly waiting for reply.

Thanking You in Advance. And Heartily Thanks for providing such a useful help to people.

Respected Maa Upma,
I have a laminated frame of Lord Siddhivinayak (right sided trunk) at home and I am not very consistent in my prayers. earlier i used to chant Atharvashirsh 2 times a day, morning and evening, but now I chant only on sankashti chaturthy. Things are not going very well these days. After reading so much about right sided trunk I am confused whether or not to continue with the picture at home. I can place in a temple also but can I just cover it and keep it in my closet?
Kindly suggest.

Comment by MaaUpma

September 26th 2009 07:13
Dear Sarika

The reason for things not going so well these days may or not be linked with Keeping Right Sided Trunk Ganesha and may require a detailed analysis of your horoscope.

Keeping it in a closet may not be such a great idea

we have a hall, where we also dine, watch tv, where outsiders first come and sit and in night we sleep in same hall.
with so many vasstu non complainces, thanks due to the very nature of governemnt rooms that once were transit quarters, what do u suggest?
would any vastu yantra/matra/idols be of any help?
we had been constanlty faced trouble from our NE facing and downstairs neighbours. apart from taht delayed marriage problem, and all.

I have some doubt in my mind.
I have moved to a new home..
i have made my temple in north-east room with idols facing south west and me facing north east.
actually i want to arrange my temple in such a way that idols face east.. but the problem is that there is a toilet wall (not door ) in that east direction..
what should i do ????
whats the exact direction for temple and for idols facing ?
one more thing ...
i have heard that Lord Ganesha should never have His back inside the house..does it apply for every God ?
should i arrange my temple in such a way that every idol's face inside home and back outside the home..
or may i arrange my temple exactly in the center of the house. if yes, then how i should put my Lord Ganehsa ?
hope u understand what i really mean !!!!!

Greetings dear Ma

Thank you for all the comments. For the sake of interest may I ask the following for your general views and comments. I know that the topic is Ganesha in Vastu, but please allow this for the sake of discussion and knowledge.
I have often wondered whether there is any significant relationship between Ganesha, Buddha and the Swastika interms of symbolism at least. Ganesha is associated with the Moolathara, the source of meditation and spiritual awakening. Buddha is of course associated with meditation and spiritual enlightenment. The swastika is a mystical symbol often seen with both Ganesha and Buddha images, sculptures and the like. Also I have read comments on the orientation of the swastika - that it should be clockwise (the Nazi symbol happens to be counter clockwise but that's a different story I suppose) but I have seen been swastika displayed in anti clockwise orientation in many Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese temples, both Taoist and Buddhist. Not sure whether that is because of the lack of knowledge, inadvertence or if its deliberate.

Care to give your views and comments, Ma? Thank You

as u may be aware, houses in mumbai are small sized and i as a governemnt offcier landed up in a north facing flat having a hall, kithcen(sw)toilets(se),galler y(w).my flat is on 2nd floor,
our building has a main east facing exit, which opens into a main north south heavily trafficked road. Opp side of the road is a ayurvedic hospital cum reasrch centre cum hostel.back side of the building is also a road which is almost quite, and which I can see from my gallery cum small room, in the western sector of my house.
Our toilets are in south east, and bathroom in south, and kitchen in south west.
so u see, we had to place our pooja temple in the kitchen, where our gods face east .we cook food facing east and pray facing west.the wash basin in the kitchen is in south-east sector of kitchen.
we have a hall in which we enter facing south(that is the house is north facing), where we also dine & watch t.v. facing north, where outsiders first come and sit facing east and west and in night we sleep in same room with legs in the north direction.
we have constanlty faced trouble from our neighbours of our houses NE sector and those residing exactly below our house.Apart from that delayed marriage problem, and all.

We have no option of changing structures of the room, as it is government owned. 80% of the governemt and psu employees stay in government owned houses with permant stuructres.

Dear Sharmas

The current position of the temple as described by y ou is alright and you need not change it.

It is believed that poverty resides behind the idol of Lord Ganesha hence it is recommended to place back to back Ganesha on the entrance. If your temple is touching the outer wall of the hall this should not be a problem. It does not apply to other Gods.

Do not move the temple at the center of the house.

Thank you very much for your kind reply dear upma maa..
but i could not get the exact answers for my two questions..
1 ) If i place my mandir in the center of the house, how should i place Lord Ganesha in that mandir (in the center of the house ). as no mandir is complete without Lord Ganesha ..
2 ) Idols facing South West direction is okay or not as i heard that idols should face west and people should face east at home mandir and vice versa at temples.
I am sorry.
As i have seen that vaastu experts never reply to ordinary people's queries. as they are always looking for money..
BUT YOU ARE THE FIRST ONE WHO REPLY AND WHO WANTS PEOPLE'S PROSPERITY RATHER THAN MONEY..
I AM SO TOUCHED AND GRATEFUL TO YOU FOR THIS KIND ACT..
now i got two short specific question to save your time.
1 ) Today i changed my mandir.. now idols facing west and me facing east, but there is a toilet wall at the back of mandir but i have created a distance of 2 -3 inches between mandir and toilet wall..is it okay now ?
2 ) do u know any general vastu tips to get pregnant as we are trying hard but no success so far..

Dear Sharmas

I have already said that the earlier position of temple with God facing SW and you facing NE while praying is good. Changing it to West facing and you facing East is also good except that it is now near to the toilet wall. I will suggest change it back to the previoud position..

I have also already said that you should not place the temple in the Center. I will need to see the layout of the house through a personal consultation if you really want to do it.

I only reply to queries which are beneficial to my readers in general and for specific queries I suggest a personal consultation which is a paiid service.

Not getting a proper job or home may not necessarily be due to the pendant. The pendant may be helping him in preenting something worse happening. One never knows.

Dear Ma’am,

In my residence the previous owners had extended the drawing room with the balcony (by removing the door/ partition) and the balcony is on the lower level. The direction of this balcony is between SW and West;

1) Would you recommend me leveling the balcony with the drawing room level?
2) Also is there any other Simple solution besides leveling the balcony?

Am doing this because have still not found stability in my work life and am unemployed. I read somewhere on the internet that the SW should not be on the lower level as it causes ill luck.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Maa,

I have gone through all your posts relating to Ganesha and I am so thankful to you for providing so much information for general readers. I too have a general question which I hope you will answer in this forum.

Does placing of Ganesha idol/picture have any bearing on the health of inmates and relation between husband and wife besides bringing prosperity? I wish to improve the health of my family and my relation with my husband and seek your advice in how to go about it. As per your general advice I will begin with placing Ganesh idol back to back on the entrance of my home which is north-west facing.

Thank you in advance
Mayura

Dear Mayura

Though Ganesha idols placed back to back brings general well being in the house, it is not a miracle cure of all problems.

I suggest you place them and see the results. When placing just recite your intentions of placing them when you are installing them on the door.

In case you want you can go through a personalized consultation and write to me in an email.

On more questions please; it something that has been bothering me and I would sincerely appreciate your advice.

The kitchen of our new home is in the southwest corner of the house and the stove is such that I would need to face the south while cooking, There are no doors to the kitchen i.e it is open plan. My friend told me that this was an inauspicious direction for th kicthen per vastuu. There is nothing we can do to change the layout, is there any way to reduce or counterbalance the dosha if any.

And the ganesha facing inside the house and his back facing east and outside of house. And I have done this only I want to get rid of my monetary problem.

Dear Ma Upma

My question is regarding which room to be used as master bedroom.

I have a flat in Bangalore, placed in western block of the currently 3 block apartment set in 'C' shape (which will be incrreased in future by 7 more buildings covering these 3 buildings in outer semicircle form), such that it has a main road in the north of the block/apartment.

It has north(N), south(S), east(E) and west(W) corners and walls parallel to the lines joining the SE, EN, NW & WS directions . My main door is in E-SE quadrant corner, and opens facing line joining north and east.

I have 2 bedrooms R1 & R2. Both lie along the wall parallel to line joining W&S directions. Both have attached bathrooms adjacent to each other between them such that the rooms fall in SW-NW quadrant (R1) and SW-SE (R2)quadrants. The SW axis passes through these bathrooms.

R1 has attached bathroom opeing towards NW, a window on wall parallel to line joining SW directions, a door and a window opeing into balcony towards NW. It also has a cupboard on SE wall

R2 has attached bathrrom opeing towards SE and window on wall parallel to line joining SW directions.. It has cupboard on NE wall.

As per vaastu SW room shoud be master bedroom. Now as there is no specific southwest corner in flat and both the rooms fall between S & W directions, which one should preferably be used as master bedroom?

Am unable to find an answer to this in the books available in market...

Please help me out...

I am not follower of Ganesha...Last year one of my friend gave me one marble made Ganesha's face statue with right side trunk which is beautiful .I put that in my small place of puja. I use do to pray everyday but not Ganesha.
Now i realize that since last year Nov.2008 my time is totaly bad. I can say health, wealth, love and family all are down 100% to 25%.
As on today i dont want keep that Statue at home.
Please please advice what to do with that statue

Dear Ashwin

You can place it in a temple or submerge it in water.

Also please note that there was a major change in the position of planets in November last year and your present situation can be due to this. It is unlikely that all these problems are due to a Ganesha Statue.

In case you need an astrological consultation please feel free to write to me on my Email address

As I said my hobby is collecting Ganeshas, I don't look into the quality or which side the trunk is facing but purchase all of them, due to some family problems all the Ganesha's are Packed and not displayed. Please tell me if this is leading to some problems or is there something that I should do about it.
2. Recently my friend gifted me a Ganesha and while opening the gift pack, it broke and this is first time it is happening like this. Because he saw that I was feeling bad he bought me an another Ganesha next day and while I was packing the same to keep it carefully, even this Ganesha also broke, can you please advise what is happening I am scared, kindly guide me at the earliest.

If you are not facing any problem after the incident there is little cause of worry. Sometimes this becomes an indication of negative energies being warded off by the divine forces.

We live in Hong Kong and recently moved into a new apartment. We have a pooja room in the house and idols are kept facing west and while we pray we face the east. Outside the pooja room is a passage and toilet on the other side. which means pooja room and tollet are seperated by a approx 3 feet passage. Also in the pooja room the back of the idols face the said passage. is this ok as in many of your response it is not advised to have the back of idols (ganesha) facing inside the house.
We also have many ganesha idol and photos in the house. 2 photos at the entrance passage facing the shoe rack, 1 idol in the living room show case back facing outside. multiple idol and photos in the pooja itself including 3 right trunked sidhivinayak photos. We do light the lamp and pray twice a day.
Can you pls advise if all of the above is ok or any changes to be made

Hello,

I have been given two Ganesh figurines over the past three years as gift. One is very large and one is small. I don't know if I believe in Ganesh? all I know is God sends messages through many forms. the small Ganesh is in my office with it's back to the window and the larger statue is in the landing of my stairs. when one enters my house the respected Ganesh statue is facing towards them, but they are inside my house the stairs are on the left and the Ganesh is at the landing facing them. I am completely confused on how I should be placing Ganesh in my house. I have a very little home and if I put the statue in any other room I fear other visitors will not respect it.

Please clarify if the position is correct, Ganesh is facing inside my house but on the left of anyone who enters?

Jai Mata Di!

Maa, I have been going through the blogs and i also have a small query. Navratra is started from today. Initially Ganesh Murti was kept on North side facing south of the pooja ghar. But since we have bought Maa Durga Murti so we have placed Ganesha Murti on the South side facing north side. My concern is as mentioned in your blogs Ganesh Ji back should not be inside of room as poverty lyies at his back. Initially Ganesh Murti was north wall which is a external wall but it was facing south side. Please advice if shifting Ganesh Ji murti from South Facing to North Facing is Ok as his back is now inside of my pooja ghar?


Please advise.

Comment by MaaUpma

One of the best solution would be to fill the borewell in south and get it dug in the North, North East or East directions if possible.

Other option is to see its effect and if nothing untoward happens due to strength of your planets, let it remain there. However, to reduce the negative effects, place a figurine of Lord Hanuman such that it faces the borewell. The figurine should be maintained in a neat and tidy place and should be well respected by those roaming around it.


All the Best

Just by looking at the pose you will know whether it is just standing on one leg or dancing.

I have already written about the effects of dancing posture of Ganesha in this blog.

For your knowledge, Ganesha only danced when he was angry. Hence it depicts his angry mood.

Howver the borewell dug in this direction does nort have enough water. Now I have 2 borewells one in south 210 feet deep with plenty of water and one in NE 305 feet deep with less water.

What should I do now as the water in NE direction will not be enough.

As per my knowledge, ganesh should not be placed in any other direction except East and the pooja room has to be facing Eat or northeast direction.

As I told you let the one on south remain and put a figurine of Lord Hanuman in a respectful place facing the Borewell.

Before digging the borewell also get a survey of ground water level done.

Dear Maa Upma,

Someone told me to have a standing ganesha on entrance of the door (facing outside); is it right? Or should I have a sitting ganesha at entrance.

If right, then should I also place a standing Ganesha inside the house which backs the ganesha idol standing outside?

Look forward for your advice.

Hello Madam,

I'm planning to buy a house and it meets Vastu rules for the most part except for one.

The toilet is setup in the east of the house and I would like to seek a remedy without re-modeling the house.

Can you suggest remedy for this dosha?

I have an incredibly large collection of Ganesha statues (perhaps 75 altogether) in my home. Not only has my luck been poor as of late - it has been extraordinarily poor. I have suffered terribly, as has my family. I now realize that I have a number of statues in my home with the trunk facing Ganesha's right (my left). What must I do to remedy the situation? Do I remove them from my home? Immerse them in water? Give them to a temple?

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to be persistant in my question about Placement of Lord Hanuman - its just that i want to get it done correctly and you seem to be the only person to give me correct advise.
We had a stone (or concrete) statue in my ancestral property and i wanted to have do have something similar in my new apartment in chennai. Brass Figure looks sharp and good. Hope you appreiciate the context of my query and excuse my persistance.....Please advise if i can keep this 8" Brass idol of lord hanuman (standing with folded hands) on TOP (earlier it was side - which you disallowed) of the entrance.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Subbu

The reason I am not replying in affirmation is that generally a Panchmukhi Hanuman idol is installed on the entrance and not one with a one face.

If you can get a Panchmukhi Hanuman you can place it on the top of the entrance.

If you want to install the idol which you have then go ahead, you do not need my consent for it. I will only suggest the Panchmukhi Hanuman.

I have already communicated to you that when I feel that a question has a generic answer which can be given without studying the horoscope or without a vastu analysis of the property, than I give the answer on this site.

In your specific case, that is not the case, hence a personalized consultation is required.

Dear Madam,

2. Any Daily special Pooja needed for Right Sided Lord Ganesha, pls suggest.

3. Can a photo of Lord Hanuman ( standing position -1 headed ) be placed at the main entrance of home above the door ( near Lord Ganesha')

I am replying to this anonymous comment (though I do not reply to them) because it is a very relevant question.

Without going into the science behind how vastu works which can be a thesis in itself, it would suffice to say that for those who do not follow the Hindu faith, there are other remedies which are equally as effective.

Hi Shivam

The Shivalinga should be placed such that if you offer water to the Linga it flows out in the North or North East direction. The turtle should be placed in front of it followed by Nandi in the same line. When you stand behind the Nandi and face the Shivalinga, you should be facing the West or North West and have the Nag facing you.

Hi Nisha

There are some gurus which definitely suggest not to have multiple pictures and figurines of Lord Ganesha in the home so I am not surprised with what he has suggested.

On the other hand, I know several people (myself included) who have put several figurines of Lord Ganesha at home and have not found much problems in the household.

If you find that suddenly there are lot of hinderances in your life due to unexplained reasons, then you submerge these in a water body else let them be present.

Hello. You recently stated that some gurus definitely suggest not to have multiple figurines of Ganesha in the household. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have countless images of Ganesha in my household, and I have experienced serious, grave family problems in recent years. Should I remove the images or immerse them in water? Can I immerse them in water and still retain them? I fear that I may offend Ganesha by removing His images.

Comment by MaaUpma

When you submerge them in water you cannot retain them. Let them remain submerged. While doing this act just ask Lord for removing all hindrances and problems in your life.

Don't place the idol of Lakshmiji behind the one of Lord Ganesha. It should be Ganesha idols placed back to back.

The idol outside which is facing the house is OK but the one inside facing outside should be placed on a wall whose other side is outside the house.

We keep the door closed but still I consider that as a vastu dosha, please suggest if I put lord Ganesha at top entrance both sides of wall, will it help ? Also, is it ok to put lord Ganesha on inside ward entrance door, where ganesha will face the door of bathroom ? We cannot break or reconstruct house, but I feel this is the reason behind all the troubles in my married life. Please help.

I did not know about the vastu of Ganesh all these days. Now, I have read about Ganesh's trunk what should I do now ? This is not an idol nor a wall paper. Should I immerse Ganesh ji in pond ? I am bit worried as we did not perform pooja as we have kept Ganesh on the desk, We have other ganesh idols in home with trunk facing left of Ganesh. Does this have any effect.


Thanks,
Naveen

Dear Rinku

It will require a vastu analysis of the house for giving you solutions. Don't worry we can correct any vastu defects by placing remedies at appropriate places in the house.

Please send me the map of the house with directions at my email id astroupma@gmail.com

Please note that this will be a paid service. I will let you know the fees and cost of remedies once you send me the layout.

It is purely your choice and do as you wish.

Ganesha not only is a good show piece, it can also energize the area around it with positive energy and vibrations.

Dear Ma Upma,
Namaste
I must start with saying that you are doing such a wonderful job by helping so many people all around the globe. I was trying to find some answers and it was then when I came through this site. Honestly, all your articles are really amazing and informative. Like other people even I’m here to ask you few questions. I would be humbly grateful if you’d give me some solutions.
You have earlier mentioned about keeping an idol of Lord Ganesha(back to back) in the main entrance. Is it okay if I put pictures of Lord Ganesha instead of idols?
My other question is, recently a friend of mine told me that if I put pictures of Panchamukhi Ganesha in bedroom facing east, all my financial problems will be solved. What does that actually mean? Does it mean that I should put the picture in the west wall, so that when I look at the picture I face west or vice versa? I have put 3 pictures of Panchamukhi Ganesha in 3 different bedrooms (parent and siblings) in the west wall and 1 outside. Is it permissible?
Also I was told not to keep pictures of god and goddess in the bedroom. But I have 6 pictures of lord Ganesha: 1 Panchamukhi Ganesha, 1 dancing Ganesha in the west wall above my bed, 2 bal Ganesha pictures, 1 suryabinayak Ganesha in the east wall, 1 painting of lord Ganesha facing north. Also I have 1 picture of Dakshinkali and 2 picture of Goddess Saraswoti in my east wall opposite to my bed. I’m 24 and this is my study cum bedroom. I really don’t want to take these pictures out but having these pictures is said to bring bad luck, Is it so? I also find it very hard to concentrate on my studies. Is there any vastu remedy for this?
I’m really very confused and worried. I would really appreciate if you’d kindly help me with my queries.
Regards,
Kia

Thanks for your kind words. There are too many of pictures of hindu dieties in your house and surely it is causing problems. We need to balance the same.

Fortunately financial and concentration in studies are problems which can be very effectively addressed by a proper vastu consultation..

Vastu consultation is a paid service and if you write me an email I will send you the next steps.

Dear Saurabh

It may not necessarily be a dosha and will depend on the exact angle on which the entrance is coming with reference to the center of the flat.

For that I suggest you get a proper Vastu Consultation service from me which is a paid service.

Dear Kripanshu

Where to place the lord Ganesha is written in this article, what else do you require?

Placing Ganesha will only help you in correcting the effect of the entrance, but if the whole house is not as per vastu, you should take up a complete vastu consultation which is a paid service.

Hi

The last one year has been really really tough for me professionally and personally.
Around the same time we moved into a new house with entrance facing east. We also had a Lord Ganesha with his trunk on his left..
On advise of one of our friends we have removed the same couple of weeks back.

Would like your advise on next steps as corrective action..

Thanks!

Most likely your problems are not due to the Ganesh Statue with a left trunk, but are due to some other vastu defects in the house.

Dear Ma Upma,

I wanted your advise on where I should place a Ganeshji idol in my office. I'm in sales by profession and wanted to improve my luck, prosperity and wealth as I have not been doing well for the last 2 months.

I sit in the last cubicle with a clear window glass facing me (which cannot be opened). When I sit down at my desk, I am facing North-West and behind me is South East.

I have placed my drawer at the back on the right of where I sit which is just in front of the window glass.

Please advise where I should place a Ganeshji idol. Also, should it be a standing statue, sitting statue or a side sleeping statue.

Comment by MaaUpma

June 4th 2012 04:47
Dear Chirag

You can place the statue anywhere where convenient to you. Ganesha should be in sitting pose and not side sleeping.

Moreover, I suggest you a vastu consultation of your house which is a paid service. This will remove the problems you are facing in office. Please email me if interested.

Dear Ma Upma Shree,

1] Is Natraj murthi with Ganesh features can be kept in house & if yes, in which direction?

2] In house, when we keep statue of Ganesh in our temple, it should face South or West while we are facing the North or East respectively; But then the same thing changes in other place/ direction in our house whether hanging Ganesh/ Ganesh statue as I understood that it should face North being on South wall! If, I have understood it right, then can u also tell me why this is Maa?

3] Lastly, in a showcase my father has placed a Ganesh statues of all shapes hanging on the wall in N.East direction, i,e when one enters house, one is facing West, as Main door is East facing, what is your suggestion, please guide Maa

Dear Ma Upma Ji

Pranam and Thanks

I have a small query. In my pooja room I have a marble idol of Ganeshji facing east and behind the idol there is a photoframe of Ganeshji also facing east and resting against a wall inside the house. Are these positions correct and beneficial? (Next to this wall is a wall that separates my house from the neighbors.)

Also, when I perform puja my back is to the east? Is this ok?

Is it wrong to sleep in the drawing room that has artifacts of Ganeshji

Hi Ma Upma,

I shifted to my own flat recently which is not very big and I have a small wooden temple with idol of lord Ganesha with few other gods.

1) Have entrance door facing east at the north-east corner.

2) Right now I have kept the wooden temple facing east direction. However, the back of temple is towards guest bedroom and not to any outer wall.

I always get a feeling of poverty resides behind Lord Ganesha's back and also the temple is at the center of the hall right now. I am thinking of keeping the temple facing west at the South-East corner of my hall.

3) Also have a wooden idol of Lord Ganesha facing south-east and his back is at the outer wall of the flat.

Could you please share your views with your knowledge, whether or not south-east corner with west facing direction would be right place for the temple?

I am not facing any problem but I feel bad when I or some guests enters my hall wearing shoes.

If I change it to the south-east position (the only place I feel feiseable ) as described earlier I would be able to achive following.

1) Reserved space for temple where no one comes nearby wearing shoes and can do pooja without disturbance.

2) Temple/Lord Ganesha's back would be towards the outer wall of the flat.

3) I would be able to accomdate an L-shape sofa and other items like TV in right place which I am planning to buy.

Please let me know if keeping the temple as described will not be good idea?

In this regard, I would request you to help me with the following questions:-

1. What should be the size of both the idols?

2. In which direction they should be kept in the temple?

3. Is it necessary to have a singhasan for keeping the idols?

4. If yes, then can that be made of silver?

5. What should be the type of idol, i.e. any design or shape??

There are several other things which may be preventing wealth and prosperity in your house, just by changing the direction of dieties may not help.

What is required is to balance your house as per Vastu principles to aid it in wealth and prosperity.

You may place it either way. But more than the Ganesha Idols what is important is that your house is balanced as per Vastu.

Hope you have consulted a proper Vastu Expert before finalizing the design

Dear Sowkarthika

You can place it in Pooja. Do not place more than one Ganesha idol in Pooja.

For rituals seek the help of a Pandit.

Dear Ma Upma,

Recently I bought a new flat, the main entrance of the flat is south corner of the west wall. Going through the internet I have found that this is bad. Please advise some remedy as I have invested lot of money in this project.

Greetings,

Thanks for such a detailed and informative serie on Ganesha idols. Request your advise on below:

We have created a small wall partition just at enterance of our house (east facing). There is a designated setup to place a God Idol on this wall- facing the main door towards front and back towards living room.

Please suggest if Ganesha idol is suitable for this location. If Yes, could you suggest which idol ( Silver/copper/wood/clay/porce lean) will be best suitable.

Thanks a lot.

Regards

Dear Mr. Banerjee

Indeed it is a bad location for the entrance and there might be several other vastu defects in the house.

I suggest you undertake a paid vastu consultation where I will study the complete plan of your house and suggest you all remedies as per the problems stated by you.

Please write me an email if interested.

Dear Ansh

The article covers the answer to your questions. Not sure what is it you are asking beyond that.

Dear Ma Upma,

Is it good to sculpt a Ganesha picture on the main door itself? Please suggest.

Hi
Someone gifted me a Ganesha with many faces but the centre face has a trunk which first points left then right.
Should I keep it or not. I haven't kept it in my Pooja room but like a decorative piece in the house. Is it ok to do so, if not what should I do?

Dear Dayaratne

You may place it on the inside of the outermost South wall.

If you are using it for offering Prayers, place it in the Prayer room such that its face is facing South or East.

Dear Ma Upma Shree,
I fixed back to back ganesha on front gate of my house. Can I fix another ganesh on another wall, which is the drawing room wal . that ganesh will be seen after entering the house.
Thats for your clearly mentioned back to back ganesh concept.
