Make Your Prayer Room Vaastu-Compliant!
Your prayer room is not only a sacred place but should also exude a positive aura so that you can get into a meditative state. According to Vaastu Shastra, prayer rooms should always harness positive energies through their design and direction.
Here we have put together a quick guide on prayer room Vaastu tips to help you get started.
The location of your prayer room is crucial in defining its auspicious aura. The direction for the prayer room is the north-east followed by east and north as Vaastu Shastra propagates the north-east direction so as to harness maximum energy from the sun.
If you are designing a new home and can decide the layout of your house from scratch, then it is best to avoid the basement or higher floors of the house for your prayer room.
Ensure that the prayer room has a low ceiling. A pyramid-shaped or gopura-like top will ooze positive energy, helping you slip into a meditative state with ease.
Once the layout and structure of your prayer room is ready, place the idols a few inches away from the wall and at least six inches from the ground. This will ensure continuous air flow around the idols.
If you are wondering where to store all the spiritual books and related items, place it towards the south-east with no storage above the idol, making sure nothing obstructs the sunlight.
Create a meditative atmosphere using light colours such as white, light blue or light yellow. If you opt for marble, then white, pale yellow or ochre would work well as such colours help keep the room bright, while dark, loud shades can distract while praying.
Use bright lamps in the north-east direction to keep your prayer room bright and illuminated, making it comfortable for you while you pray.
Now that you have a handy prayer room Vaastu guide, it is time to revamp.
