Griha Pravesham Kriya :
Home / Workplace moving-in ceremony A step-by-step guide:
Griha (living/working space) Pravesham (entry) is the first entry before occupying a new place, on an auspicious day. It is the final action of purifying and making the space ready for living/working. It is also a thanksgiving to the gods and ancestors for the boon of the living/working space.
Vastu Shastra, the astrological science of architecture, believes that the space we live/work in is not just a brick and mortar object but an entity with the “griha purush” or the spirit of the place dwelling in it. It is therefore required that the occupants appease the spirit and purify the environment before moving in.

Navagraha Dhyan (Perform according to the instructions on the CD)
As per Vedic Astrology, there are 9 planets that influence your lives. The 'Nava' (nine) 'Graha' (planets) Pujan is done to appease them so that the undesirable influences caused by them can be minimised and good results can accrue. Every planet has its own importance and has an influence on the different life aspects of a human being.
(Sun – good health, Moon – success, Mars – wealth, Mercury – knowledge, Jupiter – education, Venus – art, Saturn – happiness, Rahu – strength and Ketu – familial happiness)
Graha Shanti (planetary peace) is to put all your planets in harmony. The Sun is the light of wisdom, the Moon is the warmth of devotion, Mars has strength, fortitude and focus, Mercury is the communicator, Jupiter is the great guru and teacher, Venus fills us with love and pure attachment, Saturn will take us to discipline, Rahu and Ketu polarize obstacles and help us to reconcile the opposites. Look at the beneficent aspect of the planets and then they will all be in shanti. That is the pujan.
Sankatik Vastu Shanti Havan
Preparation: Navagraha Shanti Havan Dhoop, Dhoopdaan, Charcoal
Vastu Shanti is performed to appease the planets and for rectification of innate energies and building faults. Burning of Navagraha Shanti Havan Dhoop is like performing Navagraha Homa, and is a Sankatik (symbolic) Vastu Shanti. Additional: Match sticks.
It is specially formulated with the 9 herbs traditionally used to propitiate the 9 planets, enhanced by the addition of cow dung, darbhai grass, ghee, neem, sambrani, etc. to dispel microorganisms and negative energies.
Burn the charcoal until glowing white.
Place in the dhoopdaan
Sprinkle the dhoop blend on the charcoal
The owner must carry this Dhoopdaan (incense holder)
into every room, allowing the smoke to permeate the whole house. The various medicinal ingredients in the smoke from the dhoop disinfect and purify the air within.
Listen to the Shuddhi Mantra on the CD while doing this.
Preparation: Kumkum, Turmeric,
Additional: Water, Stove, Match sticks, Metal pot, Milk
Shanti Mantra: To the accompaniment of this mantra, water is poured in a continuous stream around the house, starting from the east, which is considered the most auspicious direction, signifying the erection of protective barriers around the house to frighten away evil spirits and keep away evil influences. With this, Griha Pravesh is completed.
Boiling of milk:
The lady of the house should boil the milk in the kitchen allowing it to overflow, signifying that there will always be an (overflow) abundance of happiness, wealth and peace in the building. (Allow the milk to boil and overflow thrice.) Add sugar Naivedyam and share that milk with all who attend the function, symbolising that the family should share the good and the bad, always. Before boiling, apply turmeric paste to the vessel and put kumkum tilaks at 3 spots.
The lady of the house worships the house by doing a kumkum tilak and sprinkling akshat on the water tap, stove, granary, utensils, appliances, water pots, sink, broom and beds. She also makes a hand impression on the wall outside the home/workplace. (Alternatively, can stick a white paper on the outside wall of the house and make a hand impression on it.)
The Griha Pravesham is concluded by distributing peanuts, dry fruits and pede - a kind of sweet made of milk, as prasad. After the rituals, the guests and workers who were involved in the construction are treated to a meal in the new home.
All the flowers/fruits, etc. used in the Kriya can be offered to the nearest water body (sea, lake, etc.) the next day.
