What is bhumi pujan?

Bhumi pooja / pujan is a Hindu ritual performed in honour of Goddess Bhoomi or earth and Vastu Purush (the deity of directions), before beginning the construction of a new house. The five elements of nature are also worshipped during the bhumi pujan. Bhoomi means mother earth. Usually, the Bhumi Puja is performed in the north-east corner of the construction site. According to Vastu experts, the digging at the site should begin in the north-east corner.

For the bhumi pujan, a ritualistic 64-part diagram symbolising the ‘Vaastu Purusha’ is drawn in the north-eastern zone of the construction site, using kumkum and seeds. Each part in this diagram is related to a deity. Mantras are chanted and offerings made, to each deity. A pit is dug and the first brick is laid in it.

Religious leaders look at the Hindu Panchang, that is, the Hindu calendar, for muhurathams. It is advisable that you consult a renowned and experienced astrologer to choose the perfect muhurat for your bhumi pujan and house construction. When an astrologer is consulted, he generally analyses your birth and horoscope details, to arrive at a date. These days, you can also consult experienced astrologers online.

There are multiple opinions, when it comes to the shubh muhurats for construction of new house. In 2022, the auspicious dates are mentioned above. The general consensus is that construction of a house should not start during Ashada Shukla to Kartik Shukla.

When selecting the bhoomi puja dates and auspicious day for laying foundation stone in 2022, you will find the auspicious lagna also mentioned.

Best month to start house construction in India in 2022

Best month to start construction of new property

Depending upon the season, construction activity either picks up pace or slackens. You would have come across many contractors who are eager to start the house construction during the autumn season. The reason being, it is easier to pour concrete over soil that has not frozen or hardened due to the winters and neither is it so hot that the risk of overheating may do more harm than good. Autumn (that is, from late September to November), therefore, is a good time to start the construction of your home. It is also a good time for contractors to finish much of the exterior work and then, gradually focus on building the interiors of the new property.

Best month to start renovation of property

If much of your focus is on the interiors, that is, if you are looking at renovation or remodelling largely within the house, winters may not be a bad time. In fact, it is a practical approach too. Labourers working at your site can find it less strenuous to work during the winter months, rather than taking up the hard work in the summer months when the temperature typically reaches even 45 degrees Celsius. However, ensure that cost overruns do not take place. 

For areas experiencing excessive air pollution, winters may not be too good. Over the last few years, the Delhi government, for example, had directed a ban on construction and related activities, temporarily. If you are someone looking to start the construction, make an informed decision.

Is spring a good time to begin construction work?

Your contractors will be able to tell you better. If the ground is not wet or frozen, it should be a good time. In India, most contractors prefer doing work in the house’s interiors during early spring but prefer utilising the spring months if it is a project that would take months to complete.

Constructing your house in the summer season

If you are expecting delays in completing the house construction, do begin in summers. Longer days in summers helps workers utilise the daytime well. It may be very hot but even after taking breaks, the daylight lasts over a longer period and can be utilised better. It is good to consider this time for projects that would take more time to complete.

It has also been seen that given that a number of people undertake construction activities during the early summer, the price of raw materials also increases. You may want to weigh the pros and cons and make a decision.

Where is the bhoomi puja performed on the construction site ?

Bhoomi puja is performed in the north-east corner of the construction site, as it is the revered space. The digging, or tiling of the site is always first done in the north-east corner as the level here has to be lower than the remaining site. The excavation will make the north-east low and south-east comparatively high, which, according to Vastu, yields good results

Bhumi Pujan Vidhi: What is the typical bhumi pujan ritual like?

Most first-time home buyers often grapple with the intricacies of bhumi puja rituals and look up to parental and spiritual guidance. We suggest you continue to do so but also remember some key facts. 

The detailed Vidhi differs from region to region. The Vidhi has the following steps:

  • Identification of the spot for the Bhumi Pujan. The spot must be cleaned after taking a bath. Gangajal is used for cleansing and purifying the spot.
  • A qualified priest must perform the rituals and his presence is mandatory to eliminate Vastu dosha and negative energies.The priest usually faces the north direction while the person organising the puja faces east.
  • Bhumi Pujan begins with prayers to Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Blessings of Lord Ganesha’s are sought to avoid any hurdles that can pose a hindrance to the progress of the project.
  • An oil or ghee lamp is lit; after seeking the prayers of Lord Ganesha, an idol of the snake god and a Kalash are worshipped. The logic behind the worship of the silver snake is that Sheshnaag governs the earth and is a servant of Lord Vishnu. Hence, you would be seeking his blessings, asking him to preserve your house. The kalash on the other hand symbolises the universe. A ‘kalash’ is filled with water and mango or betel leaves are placed on top of it, with an inverted coconut. A coin and betel nuts are kept in the kalash to offer prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi. The Kalasha Puja is done to channelsie the divine energy and attract prosperity and positivity on the particular bhumi.
  • By seeking the blessings of the snake God (who lives in the Patala Loka), one has to take His  approval for beginning the construction works.

Invocation of the Sheshnaag is usually done by chanting mantras and by pouring milk, curd and ghee. You will also see that the priest puts a betel nut and a coin into the urn so as to invoke the blessing of Goddess Lakshmi.  As the puja progresses, the God of directions, Dikpalas, the snake god or Naga and the family deity known as the Kuldevata are worshipped. When the land is dug, it is done so by chanting the nag mantra. It is good to distribute sweets or even fruits among those gathered for the bhumi puja. 

The foundation stone or brick is laid after digging a small portion of the land.

Bhumi pujan samagri: Items to be bought for the house warming ceremony

The priest who is conducting the pujan will give you a list, however, most commonly the following are used

  • Rice
  • Coconut
  • Durba
  • Betel leaves
  • Betel nuts
  • Flower bunch
  • Fruits
  • Prasad
  • Camphor
  • Agarbatti
  • Cotton for arti
  • Oil or ghee
  • Deep or diya
  • Water
  • Turmeric powder
  • Kumkum
  • Kalava (red thread)
  • Paper towels
  • Pick axe
  • Quarter coins
  • Navratna or panchdhatu.

These days one can even buy a bhumi pujan samagri kit online.

Dos and don’ts after buying land

  • Compound wall: Before constructing the house, one must build the compound wall. Ensure that the height of the southwest part of the wall is higher in comparison to the other walls of the house. The east and north sidewalls can be shorter than the south and west sides walls.
  • Plants: You can grow plants on the construction site. After taking possession of the property, cultivate and grow plants on the land.  Before the Bhoomi puja, clear out the land of any dirt, including roots of dead plants.
  • Cow: It is considered auspicious to keep a calf or cow on the land.
  • Bhoomi Pooja: Performing Bhoomi Pooja is considered very fruitful since it adds happiness and prosperity to a person’s life.

If you are unable to begin the construction after buying a plot of land, due to some unavoidable reasons, make sure to clean the central portion of the plot. Construct a slope that moves towards the north or east direction.

Bhumi puja mantra

Various mantras are chanted to please the gods and invoke auspicious positive energies that reside in that bhumi. The most important mantra of a bumi puja is ‘Om Vasundharaya Vidmahe Bhutadhatraya Dhimahi Tanno Bhumih Prachodayat’, which means, ‘Let us chant for Bhumi Devi, the provider of all things; we pray to her to bless us with abundance and fortune’. There are other mantras which are recited, such as Ganesha mantra to remove obstacles and Gayatri mantra, to bestow life with happiness and nullify negative energies.

Which day is good for bhoomi pooja?

Mondays and Thursdays are considered auspicious days for performing the bhumi puja

Who all are worshipped during bhumi puja?

Vastu Purusha, mother earth, the Snake God and the five elements of nature, are worshipped during the bhumi puja.

Who is Vastu Purusha?

Vastu Purusha is the God of land and direction. The art of building or construction in harmony with nature is called Vastu and the Vastu Purusha refers to energy, power, soul or cosmic man.

What should be done after the bumi pooja?

In Vastu, water symbolises prosperity. The source of water is important and the pit for storing water or the well, has to be dug up before starting the construction. According to Vastu, the well or water tank should be dug on the north, or north-east side of the plot. Avoid the south direction.
