Praying in the Right Direction

Praying in the Prayer Room
Many religions permit us to pray and also to keep the images/idol of God, Goddess or Messengers of God. Few questions which come to mind are: What direction should one face when praying? What direction should you place the image or idol of God and Goddess or His messengers like, Jesus, Guru Nanak, Gautam Buddha and others? What does Vastu guide on Praying?


As per Vastu, the best direction to face when praying is when you face the North or the East Direction. If you have scope to dedicate a separate place to worship and pray, create that space in the North East Corner of your house or a room. Stand in the center of your house and use compass to find the room which falls in the north east. Then go to this room and find the direction where you should face when worshipping and praying. Place the images and idol in such a way that you are facing North or East when worshipping. The prayer room walls and ceiling should be painted in white (the soothing color)

Before following this simple Vastu principle be cautious about the following:
1. The prayer room should not be used by married couples (having active sex life) as their bed room.
2. The prayer room should not be used by girls past their adolescence or boys who masturbate
3. You should ascertain that any of these principles are not in line with the principles stated in your religion and accordingly take a call based on your beliefs.


If you follow these Vastu principles and take proper care of the 3 precautions listed above, your prayers are sure to become more effective and fruitful.

God Bless!

This is interesting. I had read in a few varying sources that the direction you face when praying could differ depending on what it is you were praying for. Since each of the four directions represent a different energy flow, one would choose the direction that most corresponded to their needs. But in the reading I've done, I've yet to come accross such a detailed account as you have here, specifying areas NOT to pray.

Interesting thoughts to ponder.

That's it for me this morning. I've set a limit for myself of reading only 3 of your posts per day until I catch up, leaving room for me to focus on other tasks. I've extracted great value from this morning's experience. Thank you for sharing your knowledge in such a way that's practical and easy to digest.

Looking forward to tomorrow's dose of wisdom.

There are different beliefs and each one has its view on different aspects of Human Life. Different directions for different objectives while praying may be according to a particular belief. Ultimately what works best for an individual is the best belief to believe in.

Vastu is a belief which professes North and East to be the most auspicious directions. The reason is that Sun's energy is most beneficial when it comes from North and East (4 AM to 8 AM approximately) and as per Indian practise, morning is the best time for prayers and devotion to God. Hence these directions are considered best for praying.

I definitely am motivated by your positive comments and look forward to your continued patronage to the blog. Unfortunately due to professional commitments I am unable to write one post a day.

No worries about writing a post a day... there's plenty in your archives for me to indulge in! My schedule also limits me as to how much time I can spend. It's been generous over the past few weeks, but lots of travel is in the near future, so time will be restrained.

I love this line:
Ultimately what works best for an individual is the best belief to believe in.

I appreciate your style and I'm grateful our paths crossed.

Namaskar Maa,
Me & my wife live in a 2 room rented house with one bathroom & kitchen. Once I enter the room from east(entry door is from east direction), I have to face 2 door, one is bedroom other is the toilet. Again the door which opens to bed room faces another door towards belcony.
My problem is where to put my pooja ghar(wooden pooja ghar, which can hang in wall)? As if I place the pooja ghar in east wall; it we'll face towards toilet and bed room door. Again if I place it on north wall it will be adjacent to toilet wall which is in west wall.
Kindly help me.
Regards
Madhurjya borah
