Important points to consider, for a Griha Pravesh ceremony

Vikash Sethi, CEO and promoter, says, “Before entering the new home and finalising the Griha Pravesh date, ensure that your home is ready to be occupied. Ensure that the home is not vacant and someone from the family lives in it, immediately after the Griha Pravesh ceremony.” Sethi suggests keeping the following points in mind, before doing the Griha Pravesh:

  • Ensure that there is no dwar vedh (obstacle) in front of your home’s main entrance.
  • Keep the house neat and clean on the day of the Griha Pravesh.
  • Light up the house and use flowers for fragrance, while decorating the home.
  • Perform the Griha Pravesh during the exact muhurat recommended by the astrologer/expert.

You may perform the Griha Pravesh by inviting a limited number of relatives and friends and later, organise a big party on another date, as per your convenience. As you will not do another Griha Pravesh for the same home again, hence, avoid an unplanned entry. Take your time and decide the date carefully, while keeping all other details also in mind.
