How many Ganesha statues can be kept in the home?
Sri Ganesha is the abode of universal
auspiciousness, a fact that might allure you to get more than one Ganesha
statue in your home. Vastu experts advise
not to bring more than one statue of Ganesha into a space. Two or more idols of
Ganesha can cause an imbalance in the energy flow and overpower Riddhi
and Siddhi. Choose one divine Sri
Ganesha idol for your house, and welcome him with devotion and love to ensure
you maximize the boons you receive.
Can we keep the Ganesha statue at home?
A Sri Ganesha
murti is a must-have for your house if you seek the benevolence of the
elephant-faced Hindu god, who bestows wealth, wisdom, and success wherever he
resides. Vastu experts suggest that a murti of Sri Ganesha made from pure
material, showing the Lord in a blissful mood should be placed in your place of
worship or home, which brings the divine blessings of Ganesha into your life.
Q3. Which side trunk of the Lord Ganesha statue can be kept at
experts and Vastu
rules suggest that the Lord Ganesha
statue you bring home should have its trunk turning to the left. In this
form, Ganesha is more easily pleased and radiates benevolence in the household.
For someone who is looking to worship Sri Ganesha regularly in the home Puja
temple, the idol of Ganesha with his trunk to the left is advised.
Q4. Which direction should
Ganpati Idol should be placed in the east or the
west directions of the house. The northeast corner of the house is the best
location to set up the Ganesha idol. If the northeast is unavailable then the
idol should be placed in a way that we face north or east while offering prayers.
Try to face the north direction, since lord Shiva
resides on Kailash in the north, hence one should try to make the idol face the
north direction. It is considered very auspicious.
Q5. Can you place Ganesha on
No, we should not place it on the floor. It should
be on an altar of the mandir or any heightened surface with respect and
reverence. Planning should be done accordingly. One must make a note of the
posture of the divinity. According to the experts, the idol must be in the
posture of lalitasana. Apart from this, any reclining pose is also considered
very lucky, which represents comfort, wealth, and luxury.
