Types of Griha Pravesh

According to Indian astrology, before entering or residing in any new house, the prayer or worship performed for that house is called the Griha Pravesh ceremony in Hindu religion. On the other hand, if we talk about Vastu Shastra, there are three types of Griha Pravesh ceremonies –

Types of Griha Pravesh
  • Apoorva: During Apoorva Griha Pravesh Puja, a person goes to live in a newly constructed building for the first time.
  • Sapurva: During the Sapurva Griha Pravesh Puja, we leave our house that we used to live in earlier, but later leave it empty for any reason, and now decide to go back to the same house again.
  • Dwaandhav: In Dwaandhav Griha Pravesh Puja, we leave our house under compulsion due to any some trouble or mishap and then, later on, worship it as per rituals to enter it again.
  • Griha Pravesh 2021: Significance of Shubh Muhurat

    Out of all the 16 rites, Griha Pravesh is one of the most important rites, so it is mandatory to do it at the right time. A scholarly pandit or an astrologer must be consulted to calculate its shubh muhurat. During this, the priests look at the astrological calendar and make a proper assessment of the date, constellation and planets, and ensure a perfect time for a housewarming ceremony for you.

    Significance of Shubh Muhurat
    • In Hindu Panchang, it is believed that Griha Pravesh rites performed in the month of Magh, Phalgun, Vaishakh, and Jyestha are very auspicious. While during the Chaturmas, i.e. Ashadh, Shravan, Bhadrapada and Ashwin month, this ceremony should not be performed for any kind of housewarming ceremony because, in Hindu religion, it is considered a taboo to do Manglik work at this time. Along with this, Paush month is also not considered an auspicious time for Griha Pravesh.
    • If you specifically look at a particular day, it is forbidden to enter the house, especially on Tuesdays. Also, under special circumstances at times, Sunday and Saturday are also considered inauspicious for Griha Pravesh ceremony. Apart from this, you can conduct this ceremony on the remaining days of the week at your convenience.
    • According to the dates, the Amavasya and Purnima dates of any Paksha are inauspicious for the entrance in the new house, while the Dwitiya, Tritiya, Panchami, Saptami, Dashmi, Ekadashi, Dwadashi and Trayodashi of the Shukla Paksha is considered to be the best for the housewarming ceremony.

    • It is believed that the main entrance of the house should not be locked until a few days after performing the religious ceremony. Otherwise, the Gods and Goddesses feel hindered to enter the house.
