Best Day for New Beginnings - Mahesh Bang

According to Vastu science, every Hindu home and all communities who follow Hinduism anywhere in the world should have a small statue of Lord Ganesha above the entrance of the main door of their house. A special shelf or small stand should be especially made for this deity above the door. In simple words, before you open your front door to enter your house, you should face Lord Ganesh situated above the door. This will protect you by preventing evil forces and obstacles from entering your home. It will also deflect negative energy and bring prosperity to your home. It removes the Vastu defects caused by an incorrectly positioned entrance door. It is believed that Lord Ganesha is always accompanied by his two wives, Riddhi (prosperity) and Siddhi (knowledge) so it is good to write Riddhi on the right side of Ganesha and Siddhi on the left. All the writings alongside Ganesha should be done in red or orange.


  • Do not look at the moon on Ganesh Chaturthi as this is considered inauspicious.
  • Do not keep three Ganeshas at your home, any other number is fine.
  • Avoid abstract paintings of Ganesha as they are not recommended as per Vastu.
  • One should take care that Ganesha is in full figurine and not just the trunk or upper half as you get nowadays.
  • Try not to install Ganesha with the trunk to his right.
  • It is believed that Lord Ganesha was born during midday, so it is best to worship during this time. However, the entire day is auspicious.
  • Lord Ganesh is easily pleased and showers his blessing’s on those who offer him twenty one ‘Durva’ grass.
