Vaastu Shastra is the science of designs and directions. It is derived from the word “Vaastu” which essentially means “to live”. We can find many references to this science in our Vedas. Even the ancient Indian saints were of the view that any living or nonliving thing is made from panch tatva.-Prithvi, agni, jal, aakash, vayu.
The main door of the house is of great importance and following are the tips for the doors-
According to Vaastu, it is necessary to fix an auspicious day for commencing with the main door after the Vaastu puja. After all, doors are the entrance to the office where resides Lord Brahma!
However, there is no hard and fast rule for the location of the main door.
According to the experts, east, west and north positions are suitable for situating the entrance of house and office.
The entrance door’s position should be in the same place as of the main door. Do not locate door towards the corner.
Always decorate the entrance with the picture or signs of lord Ganesha and goddess Lakhsmi.
The main door should be large as compared to the other doors of the house.
Always make sure that there is no underground tank of water at the place of your main door.
Avoid wood from the pepaal tree as according to Vaastu it is considerably better if you use the wood of Teak.
If there are two main doors in the home, it is preferable to place them in the same direction.
Avoid self- closing doors which are very much in fashion these days.
It should be kept in mind that the main door should open towards inside and not towards the outer side.
Always remember that any kind of shadow should not fall on the entrance door.
The fourth position on the left hand side is considered the best for the main gate.
The direction of the front door should not be towards any kind of destroyed property.
After all, doors are the first place which cast the first impression on the visitor. If your entrance is kept clean it would indeed bring wealth and prosperity into your house. SO follow the simple rules of Vaastu and make your home a better place to live in.
