Vaastu Shanti Puja Vidhi or Vastu Yagya
Vaastu Shanti Puja is a Hindu ritual that is performed to bless a new home or office and to seek the blessings of the deities for a peaceful and harmonious living or working environment.
The Vastu Shanti Puja is usually performed by a Hindu priest or an expert in Vedic astrology. It involves the recitation of mantras, the offering of various items like flowers, fruits, and grains to the gods and goddesses, and the lighting of a sacred fire known as Agni.
The puja starts with invoking the blessings of Lord Ganesha, who is considered the remover of obstacles. This is followed by invoking the Gods and Goddesses, seeking their blessings for the well-being of the new occupants of the house or office.
