Auspicious Day and Time to Enter New House – Grah Pravesh

Auspicious Day and Time to Enter New House – Grah Pravesh

As a child I still remember the Movie, Roti, Kapra aur Makan which came out in the 70ies. In the 21st century in India these three are still the most important things revolving an ordinary person. In the last 10 years the price of real estate and property has gone up tremendously and the rise in population, shortage of land is becoming the prime factor in the escalation of land prices throughout the country. Owning a house / flat is a dream for many and the ones who are lucky to own a house; it is a moment to feel proud. Many times it is seen that even after building a house or buying a flat; one loses it due to unfortunate events in one’s life, we may call this destiny, but what are the things you should do astrologically that would ensure that you stay permanent in your own house. What are the things that will bring positive energy in your house and remove negative energy permanently? What things you should remember while Grah Pravesh or entering a new house that will bring you luck.

What things to do during Grah Pravesh that will bring positive energy and enhance luck:

So after all the years of waiting you get the opportunity of entering your new house, your new world where you will get happiness, security and peace of mind. After completing the construction of the house when you enter the house for the purpose of living, that occasion is called Grah Pravesh. It is important to do the Puja, Havan at the time of Grah Pravesh.

An Auspicious Muhurt should be fixed for Grah Pravesh after consulting an able astrologer or a Pandit.

Auspicious Muhurt or Time for Grah Pravesh

Grah Pravesh should not be performed on Amavasya and Rikta Tithi. Dooj (Dwitiya ), Teej( Tritiya), Panchami, Chath (Shashthi), Saptami, Dashmi, Ekadashi and Trayodashi (Teras) are auspicious tithi for entering a new house.

Auspicious Nakshatra for Grah pravesh: Rohini, Revati, Swati, Pushya, Hast, Poonarvasu, Ashwini, Uttarbhadrapad, Uttarasadha, Uttar Phalguni, Mool, Mrigshira, Shatbhisha and Dhanishta.

It is obvious that you want to stay permanently in your house, therefore the same has to be done during a fixed Lagan. If the entry in the house is done in a movable Lagan then the native will get to live in the house/ flat temporarily only and will move out of the house after a short while.

Grah Pravesh should take place up to or before Noon.  As far as possible Grah Pravesh or entering your house should not be done in the evening or at night. The best time should be taken after referring the Panchang or after consulting a competent astrologer.

If for some reason you are planning not to stay in your house but to have a house on rent then you give the keys of your house in a movable Lagan. That way the tenant will not stay permanent and will move out of the house after couple of years automatically.

The difference between Moveable and Fixed Lagan has to be understood in relation to entering the house. If it is for your own staying purpose then it has to be in a Fixed Lagan that would be permanent and if it for renting to someone then it should be done in a movable lagan so that the tenant does not stay permanent and automatically vacates your property after couple of years. 

Things not to forget while decorating your house:

A house is a place where a person should feel totally relaxed. The day’s tiredness is removed as you enter the house and come in the company of family members. Many times it is seen that the atmosphere in the house itself is negative and family members want to run away from the house rather than live in the house. Below are small things that you can do that will enhance the positivity in your house and make you and your family member’s feel the positive energy.

  1. Use well paint, light and anti-reflected paint. Make sure no walls have bad paint or are dirty and broken.
  2. Dress-up your house with well furnish furniture, with sufficient open place in every rooms, which will make easy and happy life.
  3. Decorate your wall with good picture and poster, like happy couple, paying children, God, golden moment together. At a glance when you see it your mind will be cheerful and fresh.
  4. Don’t fix any cruel animal picture or a Horror picture, obscene picture, it will only bring negativity, in your mind, and, you will lost peace of mind.
  5. Keep fresh flowers within your house you will get its freshness and also it will make you feel relaxed.

  1. Thank you for this Web site I got lots information through this site. But still I have my own doubts about GRUH pavesh muhurtam. Please help me my name is born on 12/2/78 6.45 pm. Ashwini nakshatra mesh rash. We have fixed our GRUH praves puja on 3rd December 2014 at 4.30 am by pandit. But some of my relatives are telling that on janma nakshatra it is not priferable to do GRUH pavesh is it true please help me. Need quick reply from u

    • Please note that the auspicious Nakshatras are given above for doing the Grah Pravesh. Also on 3rd 2014 is not recommended because Venus is combust and will remain combust at that period. At 4:30 AM Libra rashi will be rising, first if you are moving in your own house it has to be in the Fixed Nakshatra only. Libra is a movable sign and not recommended and second Libra lord Venus is combust. There has been some error and the time is not auspicious for entering the house.

    • There is no Good Mahurat in September first Jupiter will get combust and later we have Shradh from 16th of September 2016 till 01 October 2016. Navrataras are indeed auspicious period and can always be considered.
