What to Do While Entering New House-House Warming (Griha Pravesh Par Kya Karein)

Let us look at some important points related to Griha Pravesh (House Warming) in this post.

After the house is fully constructed, the first entry in the house (for living)  during a carefully chosen auspicious time is called Griha Pravesh.  

As per Vaastu a house in considered complete only when roof and doors are installed, so Griha Pravesh should be done only after it. In Ancient scriptures, muhurtas related to home have been defined for 4 stages

1) Laying foundation stone
2) Digging well
3) Fixing the door frames
4) and finally entry into the new house (Griha Pravesh)

Second point is outdated in this age. First and last points are very important astrologically. The happiness and prosperity of a house depends on the auspicious time at which the foundation of the house was laid and the Griha Pravesh was done. Auspicious time and Pooja is done mostly to ward off the evil effects present at that area. The pooja which is done at an auspicious time in favorable nakshatras at the time of laying of foundation is known as Bhoomi Poojan. The pooja which is done at the time of Griha Pravesh is known as Vaastu Pooja.

  • Always arrange the ganpati and vaastu pooja at the time of Griha Pravesh.
  • While entering the house for the first time for Griha Pravesh (House Warming), keep your right leg inside the house first.  
  • Put one kalash (pot) filled with water or milk inside the house on the day of Griha Pravesh and donate that pot to a poor man or in the temple the next day. 
  • The day Griha Pravesh is done, the inhabitants of the home should sleep in the home that night. 
  • Milk must be boiled in the house on the day of Griha Pravesh. 
  • House should not be left completely vacant for the next 40 days and at least one member of the house should be there in the house.
There are many other things to be taken care of but those can be handled by the Pundit you will bring to get the ceremony done.
